Fastlane Predictions & Thoughts



#1 Contenders Match
Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan
Mascara De Fuego: Roman Reigns. I know the rumblings of either replacing Reigns at Mania or making it a triple threat but my gut still tells me that they are sticking to their original plan and putting Reigns in the main event against Brock Lesnar for the title. What I do think will change the out come of the WrestleMania main event is if Lesnar does stay with the WWE. If he does, I don’t think you should take the title off of him and have this match as a learning lesson for Reigns. After this build up to Bryan vs. Reigns, the only one who’s shining at the moment is in fact the WWE Champion. As for the match, I have to think that Bryan will carry Reigns to possibly the best singles match of his career.
Great Puma: Double DQ or Double Countout. I want that Triple Threat to happen for the Wrestlemania main event. The WWE has to realize by now that Reigns is just not ready. He has a strong pop but it’s nowhere near Daniel Bryan’s reaction. Having Reigns go over Lesnar will backfire big time. The fans want Bryan to win, or Lesnar to retain. It’s as simple as that.

WWE United States Title Match
John Cena vs. Rusev
Great Puma: Rusev. Because Cena doesn’t need another title for the rest of his career. Then again, is Cena facing Rusev again at Mania? If so, I do like MDF’s scenario below. That being said, Rusev should be protected for the next few years like how they used to protect Sheamus and Orton. Rusev can be that guy that can step into the top heel spot at any moment if he’s made to look strong every month.
Mascara De Fuego: John Cena. I’m going with Cena because doing a fucked finish for this match is a stupid idea. I think Cena should be the first person to get the pinfall victory on Rusev and win the US Title but in saying that, I do think Cena returns the favor by giving Rusev a big Mania victory where he regains the title. This would even things out until Extreme Rules where Rusev can beat Cena again in a stipulation match. I think this is the best way to get Rusev over. Knock him down a step so he can take two big steps.

WWE Divas Title Match
Paige vs. Nikki Bella
Mascara De Fuego: Nikki Bella. I don’t think Nikki is losing this title yet or for the foreseeable future. Possibly when AJ makes her return. Paige makes my dick happy.
Great Puma: Paige. What he said.

WWE Intercontinental Title Match
Bad News Barrett vs. Dean Ambrose
Great Puma: Dean Ambrose. Bad News Barrett is just one of those guys that I can’t root for. He just doesn’t have IT despite the WWE perennially pushing him down our throats. Ambrose has been the workhorse here in making this match seem way more important than it should be. Dean cares. I care. So should you.
Mascara De Fuego: Barrett. Yet another match that will end up at Mania… They should just rename WrestleMania to RematchMania… :\ This match should have the fucked finish that will lead to the rematch at WrestleMania. Unfortunately, I don’t know when Ambrose will actually get his. I fear the answer is either NEVER or if a couple of main eventers go down with an injury at the same time…

WWE Tag Team Title Match
The Usos vs. Cesaro and Tyson Kidd
Mascara De Fuego: Cesaro & Kidd. Fuck it why not? It’s fresh, its new and this new team is dope. It might be the break both of these guys need to get over… They might need to turn this into a crew of 3 or 4 dudes and call them some shit like the “beat down crew”… oh wait… nevermind.
Great Puma: The UpperCATS. I like the Usos but I like the Uppercats even more. Tyson Kidd deserves some hardware for all the great work he put in NXT last year. I won’t even begin to write about what Cesaro should be awarded.

Goldust vs. Stardust
Great Puma: Stardust. I hope this is just a set up to a Mania blow off. It probably won’t happen but it should. As a wrestling company, you should reward loyal performers who give your audience quality match after quality match. Step up and do the ring thing, WWE!
Mascara De Fuego: Stardust. Yet another match that should happen at Mania but its happing here. These dudes might get left off next months card. Sucks especially when they’ve been pushing for this match for years to happy at WrestleMania it seems.

Big Show, Kane and Seth Rollins vs. Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback
Mascara De Fuego: The Authority. Tired, SO tired of these pairings. Really, this should be a loser can’t face the winners match…
Great Puma: Authority. They want to keep Seth strong I assume so Ziggler and co have to do the job again.
If the faces win here, expect Rollins to win in his match at Mania.

Triple H and Sting go “face-to-face”
Mascara De Fuego: Sting will do espooky things to Hunter and goat him into a match at WrestleMania with a silly stipulation like, the loser has to book 3 hour RAW’s for a full month…
Great Puma: I just want them to talk. No altercation at all. Like MDF said, give the match a stip like the Authority has to give up control over RAW for the 1000th time.
