Today on ZWrestleTalk! Dom Bouchard grades the bizarre WWE Fastlane event!
KICK OFF MATCH
UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP
Kalisto (C) vs Alberto Del Rio
Good match! Alberto Del Rio is extremely aggressive and gets disqualified for using a chair then pins Kalisto, and here we go for a nice stretch of action that led to the finish and a win by Kalisto. Good action and the chemistry was there this time around.
DIVAS TAG TEAM MATCH
Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch vs Tamina and Naomi
Fast paced match but nothing spectacular… Becky and Sasha showed early dissension but were able to work together and Sasha made Tamina tap out!
INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Kevin Owens (C) vs Dolph Ziggler
What an amazing performance by these two amazing wrestlers. Dolph and KO can't do wrong and their chemistry is over the top. KO is the best heel in the WWE by far. All the little nuances, the way he talk to Cole, his mannerisms, thrash talk.They also know each other well enough to be creative every time they face each other. Again another match that will steal the show. Kevin Owens wins with a very stiff popup power bomb. Dolph sold it like he was shot! Amazing.
Ryback and Big Show and Kane vs The Wyatt Family with Bray Wyatt
Surprisingly a very good back and forth match between these guys. Ryback was on fire tonight and seemed to have fun. Hopefully he didn't injure Harper with the botched shellshock for the win. Wyatts lose. What's new?
Grade B for the match
Grade E for WWE creative
DIVAS CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Charlotte (C) vs Brie Bella
Charlotte did the best she could to carry Brie to a passable match. Brie worked hard and even did a beautiful top rope dropkick. Charlotte managed to win the hard fought battle.
Chris Jericho vs AJ Styles
Y2J and the Phenomenonal One clash in a hard fought battle. Two veterans with a chip on their shoulders. Y2J to prove he still can hang with the best in the business and Styles to prove he can make it in the WWE. Styles is very crisp and Jericho can still sell and even though he is not as fast as he was, can still perform at a high level. Slow paced but solid action, AJ sells real well and the fact that Jericho dominated most of the match made it clear Styles would somehow steal the victory. Styles clash and a kick out. Calf crusher and tapout AJ Styles wins!
Cutting Edge Peep Show with The New Day
Very funny exchange between the 5 guys and then The League of Nations came out. New Day left and the League started insulting Edge and Christian. Is it the face turn of the New Day?
Curtis Axel vs R Truth
Really. What's up? A roll up by Axel after Goldust's attempt to help truth backfired.
#1 CONTENDERS MATCH, WINNER FACES TRIPLE H AT WRESTLEMANIA 32
Dean Ambrose vs Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar
Brock took Dean and Roman to Suplex City early on. Brock was delivering suplex after suplex until a spear by Reigns followed up by a lowblow by Dean.They then preceded to power bomb him through the announcers table.Then Dean attacked Roman and again they powerbombed Brock through another announcer's table.Dirty Deeds! Kickout by Reigns! Lesnar suplexed them both. Kimura lock on Reigns but he powers out .Chairshots by Dean on both men. A couple second later, Roman Reigns spears Dean Ambrose. It's all over!!!!
Winner Roman Reigns
Editor's Note: Well surely after a wild and fan-upsetting Fastlane, RAW tonight should change the mood. WWE is starting off the night with the Vincent J. McMahon Legacy of Excellence Award. Maybe Vince gives it to his friend and WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump? Last night, people called the event a let down. Which isn't true it was just the man at the end. Roman Reigns is the one equation WWE and the fans can't solve. Other then a predictable and a disappointing outcome. Fastlane was still very good, and WWE has us reeled in. No one is going to Boycott WrestleMania. It just sucks because the fans of Dallas deserve a better and bigger main event.
