WWE Fastlane: Asuka Officially Challenges Charlotte To A WrestleMania Fight

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

Check back for more on WWE Fastlane 2018! What is this pay-per-view? Things fired back up after Zayn hit Owens with the Helluva Kick in this week's episode, but I'm not sure how they're going to follow up on it-if they will follow it up at all. As far as what Michael Cole would consider "WrestleMania implications" are concerned, there is next to nothing. Thankfully, Fastlane 2018 was better than I expected as a decent effort was made from most of the matches. It was AJ Styles who defended his World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Championship in the Six-Pack Challenge against John Cena, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler, and Kevin Owens.

John Cena has found his opponent for WrestleMania.

WWE could still book a Styles-Nakamura match. To put the kibosh on that now would just be a giant letdown; but hey, it's never beyond the realm of possibility in today's WWE to deliberately book against the wants and needs of the fanbase.

This Sunday, Fastlane will commence and it will feature The 6 pack challenge for the WWE Championship. Styles has a score to settle with Cena as he lost their last two matches against each other. But really, that's the only logical outcome.

Meanwhile, the rest of the card is a mess.

Who will win and get one step closer to WrestleMania 34? So, I think inserting Sami Zayn in there with Styles invoking the rematch clause is the best option, and it saves Styles vs. Nakamura for next year's Wrestlemania main event. If he's going to make that turn, a match against a WWE legend on the sport's biggest stage would be the flawless place to do it.

Asuka shows up to assist Charlotte Flair and then challenge her after. The Women's Champion forced Riott to tap via her "Figure Eight" submission move to retain the title.

Elsewhere at Fastlane, Natalya and Carmella defeated Naomi and Becky Lynch, The Bludgeon Brothers laid out The Usos and The New Day, and Charlotte Flair pinned Ruby Riott. This could come into play tonight, seeing a Carmella cash-in victory and a Charlotte rematch at WrestleMania.

The tag-team of "The New Day" was out next to compete against the Tag-team Champions "The Usos" in the title match. Giving him throwaway matches for the better part of a year in feuds that have amounted to nothing either speaks to the misuse of talent on the blue brand, or poor foresight on the part of the "SmackDown" creative team. Despite, like a lot of the card, suffering from a lack of unpredictability (saying that, I got half of this card wrong, but the fact that none of that excited me speaks volumes about Smackdown's creativity at the moment) this match had plenty of storylines centred around it heading into the event.

The two teams gave it their all and there seemed to be no clear victor until the final moment.
