SIX WAY MAYHEM, NEW WRESTLEMANIA BOUT CONFIRMED, A NEW CHAMPION CROWNED, A BLUDGEONING & MORE: COMPLETE WWE FASTLANE PPV COVERAGE

By Mike Johnson on 2018-03-11 22:53:00

Becky Lynch & Naomi vs. Natalya & Carmella.

Becky and Carmella started the bout.  Naomi tagged in and nailed a splash in the corner.  She went to the top, but Natalya caught her with a sit-down powerbomb.   Carmella and Natalya double-teamed her.  Naomi was run into the corner. 

Natalya and Carmella tagged in and out working over Naomi.  Nayalya locked in a sleeper but Naomi escaped.  She leapt to tag Lynch, but Natalya grabbed her and pulled her away.  Nice tag team psychology.  Naomi was worked over even more, including Carmella nailing a kick from the floor as Naomi was hanging off the apron outside.

Lynch finally escaped a Natalya suplex and made the tag.  Lynch cleaned house on Natalya, including nailing a T-Bone Tazplex.  Lynch nailed a missile dropkick off the top, sending Natayla into her own corner.  Carmella tagged in.   

Naomi went for the rear view, but Carmella avoided it.  She nailed Carmella and Lynch came off the ropes with a legdrop.  She covered Carmella, but Natalya nailed her to breaks up the pinfall.    Lynch went to the top but was distracted but Natalya.  That allowed Carmella to do a handstand, pulling her off with a rana.

Lynch gained control.  Natalya grabbed the Money in the Bank briefcase to hand it to Carmella.  Lynch nailed her first but Carmella nailed a superkick and scored the pin.

Your winner, Carmella & Natalya!

Good, solid back and forth tag match with a nice pace and some good work by all involved.

They aired a New Day video pushing the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards.

WWE Smackdown Tag Team champions The Usos vs. The New Day.

Xavier Woods started off with Jey Uso.  He got drilled hard early and The Usos cornered him and tagged in and out, stomping him hard.   Corey Graves referenced the Samoan SWAT Team.  I popped for that.    Xavier finally tagged out to Kofi Kingston, who nailed a lot of hot offensive maneuvers before nailing the Boom Drop.

Lots of really good back and forth action.  Kingston was worked over but made the tag to Xavier.   Xavier fired back with roaring forearms.  Kingston added a kick, setting up Jimmy Uso for a Woods superkick.  Kofi tagged in and went to the top.  Xavier nailed a superkick and Kofi nailed a superfly splash for a two count.

New Day were sent to the outside, setting up a double dive from the Usos onto all three members of New Day.  

The Bludgeon Brothers’ music hit, and they came down to the ring.    They attacked everyone on the floor, so the referee rang the bell.  I get they are obviously setting up Wrestlemania but given the level of work those involved could pull out in the ring, this was disappointing to see.

The Brothers pulled Woods off the apron and suplexed him down to the floor.  They ran the Usos into each other, then slammed them on the floor.  Harper slammed Harper atop of one of the Usos and then splashed the champions.

They then powerbombed Woods on the bottom half of the ring steps. 

Everyone was left destroyed by the Bludgeon Brothers.  As a vehicle to get them over, it was very effective.   One would assume a three-way bout at Wrestlemania.

They promoted the Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar storyline leading into Wrestlemania.

AJ Styles was being interviewed by Renee Young when Shinsuke Nakamura showed up.  Nakamura told him he hoped that AJ won tonight so he could beat AJ.  An intense AJ cut him off and warned him that at Wrestlemania, Nakamura was who was going to get beat.

They stretchered out all of the Bludgeon Brothers’ victims.
