Hi everyone and welcome to my 2018 predictions for WWE Fastlane
This is the LAST PPV before Wrestlemania 34 (In which there will be a 3-part prediction series for that weekend 😉 ) and this also marks the final SmackDown Live exclusive PPV before WWE go back to dual-branded PPV’s
All the SmackDown titles are on the line with a bigger emphesis on the WWE Championship match.
So let’s get into it.
- Shinsuke Nakamura vs Rusev
PREDICTION: Rusev is as over as Rusev Day. Rusev to win.
- Becky Lynch & Naomi vs Natayla & Carmella
PREDICTION: “Let’s have a non-title women’s match…” Becky & Naomi to win. They are the only people deserving the victory.
- Bobby Roode (C) vs Randy Orton for the United States Championship
PREDICTION: It’s hard for me to predict this as I will admit, I have not watched SmackDown that much (been too busy lol) but never the less, it’d be great if Bobby Roode could retain this championship. He deservers to be champion for a long time.
- The Usos (C) vs The New Day (NO CONTEST) for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships
PREDICTION: These guys have had the best fued for the last few weeks and it is always a treat watching them compete (Watch Hell in a Cell PPV 2017) – I like Uso’s as champions but with the rumours circulating that they are going to RAW after Wrestlemania, I would like to see them hold it until Mania and then drop to the New Day. The Usos to retain
- Charlotte (C) vs Ruby Riott for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
PREDICTION: How over is Ruby? Ruby is just awesome ever since she (And Liv and Sarah) debuted on the main roster. I would like her to be champ until about Mania and then give it back to Charlotte. Ruby Riott to win
- AJ Styles (C) vs John Cena vs Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn vs Baron Corbin vs Dolph Ziggler in a 6-pack challenge for the WWE Championship.
PREDICTION: By the time Sunday rolls around, this could easily be a 10-man Royal Rumble match with so many people being added to this match. Overall, I would like to see AJ Styles retain but I know that they are going to be putting on a great match that we will talk about and it really is setting up some big fueds after mania (That’s if some of the guys remain on the blue brand after Wrestlemania)
And that is my lot. I will try to Live Tweet on Sunday night on @PFWressling and I will have my 3-part Wrestlemania Series featuring NXT TakeOver: New Orleans coming about a week before the PPV itself.
Some notes about this site: I was thinking about amalgamating my content to just one location (Padraig.blog) but I have decided to keep this site and duplicate the content onto padraig.blog.
If you have any questions or anything, please email me p at pf dot ie. 🙂
Oh well, I should have known that Shinsuke won since he won the RR and is probably being pushed hard for his Wrestlemania match against AJ Styles for the WWE Championship!
Randy was a surprise and Charlotte v Ruby Riott had a good match.
