WWE Fastlane 2017 Preview

By @Phranchize19 

Sunday will mark the last WWE pay per view before WrestleMania. Raw will produce Fastlane and we will bear witness to some intriguing stories heading into this show. While the show is centered around Goldberg vs Kevin Owens, there could be some quality matches on this card.

*Rich Swann & Akira Tozawa vs The Brian Kendrick & Noam Dar

-What a mighty fall Swann has had. WWE treated him winning the title as such a big deal and now he's on the pre-show. Noam Dar, as great as he is has been, is saddled with a horrible gimmick, so the real story here is Kendrick and Tozawa. Their rivalry has been brewing for a while now. Given that the Cruiserweights don't get development or proper ring time, I expect this to be a solid match to get the crowd going.

Prediction: Swann and Tozawa win with Tozawa pinning Kendrick

*Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax

-This rivalry has been solid given the little focus its had. Jax has excelled in her heel role and we haven't seen a woman this dominant since Beth Phoenix. We all know Sasha is the second best female wrestler on earth, but this will be more about the rise of Nia Jax. Jax will win easily here with more fight from Banks than their previous encounters

Prediction: Jax pins Banks

*Gallows & Anderson vs Enzo and Cass 
Raw Tag Team Championship Match

-To be perfectly honest, Gallows and Anderson have ZERO momentum after failing to beat Reigns on two occasions and made to look like fodder instead of champions. I believe WWE was trying to bide time with Enzo and Cass winning the tag titles. While I understand Enzo and Cass are clearly the future of the Raw tag division, I don't think they should pull the trigger just yet. Let this moment happen at WrestleMania.

Prediction: Gallows and Anderson hit Enzo with the Magic Killer and win

*Sami Zayn vs Samoa Joe

-While I am excited to see two world class wrestlers get it on, one has to feel bad that Rollins was not in this spot. I'm sure WWE had Rollins vs Joe in mind before the injury and Joe needed more momentum, so they had to create this rivalry out of necessity. Zayn will make for a great opponent and there will be good psychology, but we all know how this will end.

Prediction: Joe pins Zayn

*Neville vs Jack Gallagher 
Cruiserweight Championship 

-I am a Gallagher fan. I think he has massive potential and will one day be the champion. I'm a bit confused as to why they are feeding him to Neville here. If they needed an opponent for Neville, Perkins would've fit just fine here. I don't want to see Gallagher lose momentum here, but I don't expect WWE to pull the title off of Neville so quickly.

Prediction: Neville beats Gallagher by Submission 

*Charlotte vs Bayley 
Raw Women's Championship

-This one is a bit hard to figure out. Vince is obviously obsessed with Charlotte (who's not been out of the title picture since her first title match with Nikki Bella) and that's fine, but WWE missed an opportunity by not being patient with Bayley. This match will be good, but I'm iffy on who wins because Bayley is over, but Charlotte is dominant on pay per views.

Prediction: Charlotte regains the title

*Roman Reigns vs Braun Strowman

-This could be match of the night. While this won't be a technical masterpiece, this will be a hard hitting fight. Strowman has improved leaps and bounds as a performer since coming from NXT and Roman has improved tremendously as well. It remains to be seen if Roman can carry a match, but this is the opportunity to do so.

Prediction: Strowman only wins unless Undertaker shows up during (not after) the match.

*Goldberg vs Kevin Owens 
Universal Championship 

-Isn't the result obvious? All I can say is poor KO. Saddled with poor booking and now this.

Prediction: Goldberg convincingly defeats Owens

How will this PPV turn out? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
