WWE On Xavier Woods' Status Following Fastlane Angle

In spite of reports from the Wrestling Observer that Dolph Ziggler might be Shane's foe in New Orleans, WWE veered towards a continuation of the KO/Sami program at Fastlane. Charlotte Flair was in action defending the SmackDown Live Women's Championship against Ruby Riott.

It appears Rowan and Harper are up for some sort of title match at WrestleMania 34, perhaps a Triple Threat with The New Day and The Usos or a Fatal 4 Way with another blue brand tag team.

The team of Becky Lynch and Naomi locked horns with the team of Carmella and Natalya in the first women match in the night.

The tag match between The Usos and The New Day was also uneventful mainly because The Bludgeon Brothers came in to interfere.

The 37-year-old dominated the match against Roode, who had won the title in January after defeating India's Jinder Mahal. Shinsuke Nakamura will challenge the WWE Champion at WrestleMania 34 because he won the Royal Rumble, and a singles match between the Japanese wrestler and Styles makes the most sense. The "Queen" retained her Smackdown Women's title against Ruby Riott in a high-profile match.

My only real issue here was that the match never really got going, with the finish, despite being well executed, just coming "outta nowhere". "When you get to this upper level things change in the way that you work in the ring, the way you act, everything and he had to learn really quick basically how to be a big star in WWE which sounds easy, but it's not".

SmackDown women's champion Charlotte Flair also has her Wrestlemania match confirmed, after Raw star and women's Royal Rumble victor Asuka announced that she would be challenging Charlotte next month.

John Cena, also known as "The Champ" was seen on WWE Fastlane 2018 on Sunday.

Charlotte Flair on her own part in an interview session with "Talking Smack" where they asked her if she thinks Asuka is overrated said that Asuka is not overrated neither is she underestimating her (Charlotte) but that she (Asuka) knows where she's headed and what she's capable of. After all, the victor of the Royal Rumble in January gets a title shot at WrestleMania and there are only 30 people in that match.

My second favorite match of the night belonged to Randy Orton vs Bobby Roode for the US Title.

For example, take a look at the Hardy Boyz' win when they returned a year ago at WrestleMania 33.

Shane McMahon is sitting at ringside for the match when Kevin Owens accidentally superkicks him. Cena tried to cover Ziggler for the pin, but Ziggler broke it by two-count.
