WWE: Ranking the Fastlane 2018 matches by projected quality

WWE Fastlane 2018 – Live on Sky Sports Box Office; WWE Network

Time, story, crowd reaction, psychology, placement on the card, and other extenuating circumstances determine whether fans talk about certain matches years later or forget about them altogether. Though, I do think that Carmella is going to remind us that she is Ms. Money in the Bank.

This is clearly meant to be a puffer win for the Royal Rumble victor Nakamura as he heads into WrestleMania, but I do hope they're given at least 10 minutes to work with.

Within the match itself, there are some other storylines working themselves out, but John Cena's involvement in this feud should have the largest impact on what is to come.

Dolph Ziggler appears to have a match in store for him at WrestleMania 34, though it might not be the kind of match you'd regularly expect from the Show-Off.

Randy Orton defeats Bobby Roode: Both men went for back and forth action in the start. While Mahal was able to get to Orton, Roode fought him off and hit both Mahal and Orton with the Glorious DDT.

There's also the matter of the United States Championship, which also seems to be headed toward a Triple Threat featuring Bobby Roode, Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal, especially following the events at Fastlane. Charlotte, to nobody's surprise, successfully defended her title against Ruby Riott. Riott performed well against Flair with help from her Riott Squad members Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan who were later joined by Flair's friends Naomi and Becky Lynch at ringside. Charlotte later challenged Ruby Riott and she accepted.

The New Day vs. The "Phenomenal One" will now take on Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE championship at the grandest stage of them all. I'm convinced, however, that the only reason they're doing this is to give New Day the titles back and reopen the division to new credible challengers; namely, the Bludgeon Brothers. As for RAW Tag Team Champions Sheamus and Cesaro, their match isn't quite as obvious, but a match against The Revival could be entertaining. We'll soon find out. 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. The match was already a big one before John Cena faced AJ Styles for the opportunity to be part of it. He comes in attacks, Ziggler, Corbin, Zayn and Owens. Well WWE Creative, and probably Vince McMahon, have gotten it into their heads that if Cena wins a 17th World Title everyone will acknowledge him as the greatest of all time. John Cena had gone for broke in the match, Attitude Adjusting everyone in the beginning and leaving just him and Styles.

On the latest episode of WWE SmackDown, there was a five-way match, which was won by Zayn.

SmackDown's Wrestlemania main event is now confirmed however, with Styles set to defend against former rival Shinsuke Nakamura.

Fastlane, the final PPV before Wrestlemania, hit the WWE Network on Sunday, March 11, and there were plenty of surprising moments during the evening.
