With Fastlane 2017 coming up in a few weeks, Fastlane on Sunday could provide a major momentum shift for WWE in the lead up to its biggest show of the year.
It is all set to go down on Sunday, March 5 at 8 p.m. ET live worldwide on the WWE Network. The kickoff show will begin one hour earlier at 7 p.m. ET.
Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax: Considering Jax has been dominating Banks as of late, WWE Fastlane 2017 it makes sense for the former champion to get back in the win column here. That could lead Jax to take out Banks as revenge during the women’s title match later in the show, which could ultimately help set up the Fatal 4Way women’s title match I expect at WrestleMania 33. Pick: Sasha Banks wins
Tag Team Championship — Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (c) vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass:Fastlane 2017 WWE has done an adequate job rebuilding Gallows and Anderson after hanging them with an awful comedy gimmick as The Club came to an end. Considering Enzo and Cass have never held a tag team title in WWE or NXT, it would be a bit confusing to give them a win here as the moment can be built up much greater down the line. Perhaps they can capture the titles at WrestleMania, where the big-time faces could elicit a huge pop from the crowd in Orlando, Florida, where they first gained popularity with NXT. Pick: Gallows & Anderson retain the titles
Cruiserweight Championship — Neville (c) vs. Jack Gallagher: Fastlane 2017 Live Neville has been fantastic as a dominant heel in his return to WWE from injury. Though others are enjoying the cruiserweight division, for me, he’s the only entertaining part of it right now. WWE is not booking him to drop the belt to Gallagher. Pick: Neville retains the title
Samoa Joe vs. Sami Zayn: In what has a chance to be the match Fastlane 2017 Live Stream of the night, Joe and Zayn should put on a show. Not only are the two quite familiar with each other, their clashing styles will most likely produce an exciting match. Considering Joe was just introduced to WWE and is currently involved in a major storyline with Seth Rollins and Triple H, it makes more sense for him to go over here. Pick: Samoa Joe wins
