This weekend we had was Fastlane! It was a great set up for Wrestlemania. I know that there were a lot of things going on, and there were a lot of matches. I’ve selected a few points I want to discuss from the show, and how I want to see things going forward.
The triple threat tag match was great, it’s good to see teams being used effectively. The Revival won, as expected, but the other teams still put on a solid showing, especially the post match beat down by Aleister Black and Ricochet. I like how they’re being protected, still looking strong and are looking great at what they do.
There were too many post match beat downs though. This match, Miz and Shane McMahon, The Womens Tag Team Title Match, it all felt like too much.
Asuka kept on showing why she’s great, beating Mandy Rose, while Sonya Deville looked on. It was good enough, I liked it, I’m still hoping for more resolution on Asuka and Ember Moon, but hopefully that’s coming soon.
The Man and Charlotte was good, I liked the story, I felt like I knew what was going to happen, the only logical thing that could happen. It felt very intentional, Ronda played the part well, and I liked what went on. I hope that they fully invest in Charlotte being a heel, and keep Becky as popular as possible.
The Shield vs Corbin, Lashley and McIntyre was a good match, wild, all over the place. Everyone had a good showing and I’m glad Roman is back in good health. I hope this all builds over the next month, but it was good knowing that they all reconvened at the right time before Ambrose leaves.
Daniel Bryan vs Kevin Owens vs Mustafa Ali was a good match, it all made sense, and Mustafa Ali really is such a good wrestler. He deserves to be there, he’s having a good time, it’s a shame that he was there to loose, but you had to protect Owens and Bryan shouldn’t be losing momentum going forward into Wrestlemania.
Kofi, like, what are they doing to him? I hope that things turn around, now that there is hope on the horizon. It felt a bit strange having a two man beat down on him for a long time, I just hope that he does well in the gauntlet match next week.
It’s an interesting time leading up to Wrestlemania, I’m excited, what matches are you looking forward to?
Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!
