Fastlane 2018 Recap: Asuka Challenges Charlotte

Fastlane 2018 Recap: Asuka Challenges Charlotte

The main match of the SmackDown Pay-Per-View (PPV) event - a six-pack challenge - had a blockbuster script as John Cena suffered a heartbreaking defeat, thereby losing his right to a match at WrestleMania. Alvarez hinted that the reaction from Vince taking the headbutt from Owens previous year had many within the company concerned and suggested that it wouldn't be a very good idea for Vince to compete in any more matches.

Videos are a great way to counteract that, and continuing to play them during the build toward WrestleMania would be great for Nakamura.

On the February 27th edition of Smackdown Live, free agent John Cena after unsuccessfully winning the Elimination Chamber, came to McMahon with a chance to be added to the WWE Championship match.

With an RKO from hell, Randy Orton became not just WWE's newest US Champion, but the newest Grand Slam Champion. Several of his songs have been the official themes for WWE pay-per-view events, including "Cocky" and the worldwide hit, "All Summer Long".

Regardless, it's a big moment for Orton.

YES! This is the match that I have wanted to see every since Asuka won the 2018 Women's "Royal Rumble" match. Consider it one of the most hyped-up matches in WWE history, and there's already one Hall of Famer who thinks it could be the best match in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Perhaps this is the biggest women's match they could do (outside of something involving Ronda Rousey), so it makes ideal sense. He said that he was upset not to get a shot at the WWE US Championship. Look, WWE has been telling us stories subliminally for years.

For the U.S. , it's jobs, jobs, jobs! (Just don't mention wages)
Fed officials are holding a key policy-setting session later this month to evaluate growth, employment and inflation. However, the unemployment rate remained at 4.1%, while the annual earnings growth rate slowed to 2.6% last month.

I've actually not really got that much of an issue with the finish itself, it makes sense and it means that all three teams will be competing at Wrestlemania.

Women's Championship: Charlotte Flair (c) vs.

Ruby Riott is very talented, although she was no match for the much more experienced Charlotte who made her tap out with the "Figure 8".

While it was abruptly ended by The Bludgeon Brothers, before that happened, Usos vs New Day was like a flashback to their rivalries which led to their intense Hell in a Cell match back in October.

Just as Charlotte began her victory lap, Asuka's music crashed the party. She also pointed towards the Wrestlemania sign before Flair left the arena.

Everyone seems to think that Asuka is going to challenge Alexa Bliss at Wrestlemania, even though she has never officially chosen.
