The scenario for the final pay-per-view event prior to Wrestlemania changed big-time following last night’s Smackdown. We crowned a new United States Champion via an open challenge thrown by R-Truth. The fatal-4-way match witnessed Samoa Joe defying the odds and picked the first title around his shoulder ever since coming to the main roster. Additionally, two huge matches were added to the Fastlane 2019 PPV match card.
Two of the other competitors from the above-mentioned title match will now compete delivering a dream match at Fastlane. It will be Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade alongside Zelina Vega on the March 10th event. As per the confirmations from WWE, this match will take place at the kick-off show of Fastlane.
Originally, we thought of seeing this match at the Wrestlemania 35 match card. But now that these two have already competed on Smackdown on multiple occasions and also go against each other at Fastlane, the repeated lineup is not expected at the biggest event of the year.
The final match added to Fastlane will declare the fate of the WWE Raw tag team championships. The reigning champions, The Revival will defend in a triple threat against Bobby Roode-Chad Gable and Aleister Black and Ricochet. Here’s the official announcement from WWE.com,
“At WWE Fastlane, The Revival will defend their Raw Tag Team Championships against not only former titleholders Chad Gable & Bobby Roode, but also the dynamic recent additions to Monday Night Raw, Aleister Black & Ricochet. As a result of the controversial finish, WWE.com Exclusive video revealed that the three teams will now square off in what is sure to be a complete free-for-all. Don’t miss WWE Fastlane, streaming live on WWE Network this Sunday at 7 ET/4 PT.”
Originally, Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano was about to get a championship shot at Fastlane. But Ciampa is dealing with a reported injury that is keeping him out of action for now. Hence, Black and Ricochet are getting the opportunity after Roode and Gable cost them the original title match on this week’s WWE Raw. Here’s the full match card of Fastlane 2019 following Smackdown,
