WWE: Highlights of this week's SmackDown

16 March 2018

But after this past Sunday's Fastlane pay-per-view, the match everybody wants to see will happen on the grandest stage of them all.

The main event of Fastlane was a roller-coaster ride, where it seemed at times that anyone could win.

Cena, who was expected to win the championship and book his berth at WrestleMania 34, was stunned by Styles, who defended his title by securing a win via pinfall over Owens.

On a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, two possible title matches for WrestleMania 34 were revealed.

-Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn. McMahon would interject, giving Owens and Zayn singles matches against Corbin and Ziggler respectively. And how long can Shane continue doing this without it being clear that he's out of line, and really is the heel in the situation?

Packers reportedly sign Jimmy Graham to 3-year contract
To that end, Green Bay's front office is placing a priority on upgrading Aaron Rodgers' weapons in the aerial attack. The Green Bay Packers have parted ways with veteran receiver Jordy Nelson in what is surely a cap-cutting move.

Zayn's promo was great, Owens was strong as usual and McMahon resigning opens up a big door of possibilities. Styles has a score to settle with Cena as he lost their last two matches against each other. Considering "Rusev Day" is one of the most over gimmicks now in WWE, this could be a nice little push for Rusev as a main event talent. And yet, now it is in stone. The only other match advertised for the night is Pete Dunne defending the United Kingdom Championship against Adam Cole. Also check out our full breakdown of WWE Fastlane matches.

If this is the card set for April 8, then WWE has already done a good job of giving the fans a show they won't soon forget.

If this is the type of showcase WWE plans to give fans for the buildup to the Fabulous Moolah Battle Royal match at WrestleMania, WWE should consider changing the match and not just because of the backlash that is coming from Moolah's name being attached to it. Ruby Riott was assisted by her team members Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan as they appear on the ringside in middle of the match. SmackDown will also feature the first blue brand appearance for Asuka, who will challenge SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania. It's going to be a great match and the flawless way for both men to go down with their heads held high. After the match, Jinder Mahal came in and attacked.

Apparently, the WWE United States title will be defended in a Triple Threat Match. This tag match is the biggest selling point of Fastlane aside from the potential of simply seeing The Undertaker.

WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship match: The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) (c) vs. All five men were tossed around the ring, into barriers, and into and on the steps. And is Xavier Woods ok? Let's go by pro wrestling logic-because Becky Lynch beat Carmella this week on SmackDown, it should probably follow that Natalya and Carmella will steal a win here.
