Tonight is WWE Fastlane, the newest February pay-per-view. After tonight we should have a more solid picture of what Wrestlemania 31 is going to look like. Here are my predictions:
Goldust vs. Stardust
After two tag team championship runs the Dust brothers are breaking up. We all knew this was would happen eventually. I think Goldust wins this match and we get a loser leaves WWE match at Wrestlemania with Stardust winning and Goldust finally retiring.
WWE Tag Team Championship Match
Usos vs. Cesaro & Tyson Kidd
Cesaro and Tyson Kidd have been very impressive as a team. This going to be a fast paced entertaining match. I see the Usos retaining after shenanigans between Naomi and Natalya distracting Kidd or Cesaro.
WWE Divas Championship Match
Nikki vs. Paige
I feel like every month I’m defending the Bellas in my predictions posts, Especially Nikki. Everytime she gets the ring she has improved. I know most people will use this match to go to bathroom or just take screen captures of Paige’s butt. I think it’s going to be a solid match. With Brie lurking outside, I see Nikki using her sister’s present to her advantage and retaining.
WWE Intercontinental Championship Match
Bad News Barrett vs. Dean Ambrose
It’s been great to see someone actually caring and wanting to be Intercontinental Champion. I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for all the Dean Ambrose fans. I see Barrett getting disqualified and retaining the championship. The good news that should set up a rematch at Mania where Ambrose should win the strap.
Triple H’s Confrontation With Sting
We all know this segment is going to setup the Wrestlemania match between Sting and Triple H. I feel like Triple H needs to end the segment strong with pedigreeing Sting after they agree to the match.
Ryback, Erick Rowan, & Dolph Ziggler vs. Seth Rollins, Big Show, & Kane
We’re getting an almost Survivor Series repeat match here. Instead of Sting saving the day it has to be Randy Orton. I can see Rowan getting jumped backstage, leaving Ziggler and Ryback to find another teammate which will end up being Orton. Another potential ending is J&J getting involved turning it on 5-on-3 beat down and the Orton can make the save. If there’s no Orton involvement I think the Authority wins it.
WWE United States Championship Match
Rusev vs. John Cena
The WWE has found a way to get wrestling fans in a pinch. If you cheer for Rusev you’ll be UnAmerican and if you cheer for Cena you’ll be hated by the IWC. Either way you’ll be getting some hate. I can’t belive I’m saying this, but I’ve actually enjoying Cena in the mid card. Obviously this just the start between Cena and Rusev. I see this ending a disqualification or count out which will set up a No DQ or Last Man Standing match between the two at Mania.
Winner Advances To The Main Event Of Wrestlemania 31
Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan
The match we’ve all been waiting for. Roman Reigns has to the performance of a life time in order to get all the fans on his side. That shouldn’t be too hard considering he’s wrestling one of the best in ring performers WWE has. As much as I would love for Bryan to win or for this match to set up a triple threat, I see Roman Reigns winning and heading to Wrestlemania against Brock. This match will be used to elevate Reigns hopefully display some diverse offense. If Reigns fails tonight in winning the crowd I think WWE has no option. but to turn him heel.
