Shane McMahon will compete in a match at Wrestlemania 34

Why Sami Zayn Winning at Fastlane is the Perfect Route to Wrestlemania for SmackDown

Following his victory at WWE Fastlane, WWE Champion AJ Styles doesn't mince words about what he's going to do to Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania.

The main event of Fastlane was a roller-coaster ride, where it seemed at times that anyone could win. We also can't forget about John Cena, who I still think will end up taking on The Undertaker, even if WWE has led us to believe that won't happen. There were multiple series of wrestlers hitting finishers and being stopped by someone else in the match.

Shane McMahon is sitting at ringside for the match when Kevin Owens accidentally superkicks him.

"There could be a chance of headlining WrestleMania this year".

In the end though, Styles recovered and pinned Owens after he did the "Phenomenal Forearm" to retain the WWE Title. "We've never faced each other, never been in a multi-woman match", Charlotte said. Not to mention, the problems between Shane McMahon and Owens and Zayn will be on display as well. This time though, it's for the WWE title, in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, at WrestleMania.

Basically, the stakes for the entire night are "Will they stick with the match everyone wants or ruin everything for no reason?" Considering "Rusev Day" is one of the most over gimmicks now in WWE, this could be a nice little push for Rusev as a main event talent. And yet, now it is in stone. I wish Styles hadn't been completely laid out for the final five (or more) minutes of the match, which felt like the Brock Lesnar treatment, but he still got the "W" so I'm tickled.

It's not specified whether or not Taker will be wrestling at the big show but reports are WWE is pulling out all the stops to have the biggest impact possible for their event in Saudi Arabia.

There was one title change at Fastlane as Randy Orton won the US Championship for the first time after pinning Bobby Roode with an RKO. Then, as the rumors prophesied, Asuka pointed to the WrestleMania banner and officially challenged Charlotte for an April 8th fight. Perhaps this is the biggest women's match they could do (outside of something involving Ronda Rousey), so it makes flawless sense.

Watching both teams steal each other's finishes and spots was excellent storytelling, and I would have loved for them to work a full match with a payoff to this feud that the fans deserve. Jinder and Orton have a history of delivering bad matches in the ring together, so here's hoping Roode can help elevate them in New Orleans. But it really feels like this triple threat match between Mahal, Orton and Roode is really going to happen.

This was the most anticipated match of the night and sadly, ended up being the most disappointing.

The "King of Strong Style" had earned the opportunity to face any champion of his right and he chose the WWE championship for a match at WM 34. Tonight's tag match of Becky Lynch and Naomi vs. Natalya and Carmella might indicate some sort of number one contender, but the only ace in the hole in the Smackdown Women's division is Carmella's Money in the Bank contract.
