Although I did not have perfect predictions for No Mercy or WrestleDream, I have another chance to redeem myself this week with Fastlane. Although there are only a few matches on this card, we will definitely find out who will be the Last Man Standing in the main event for the World Heavyweight Championship and John Cena will be in action! So let’s predict and try to do better than last week.
Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Judgement Day (Damian Priest and Finn Balor) vs Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso:
Before Dom Dom regained his North American title on Tuesday I originally picked Rhodes and Uso to win this match. Judgement Day is one of the main focal points of Raw which is why all four of them will keep all of their titles until next year, but one has to wonder when the time is going to come to end Judgement Day once and for all.
Winners: “And Still” Judgement Day (Damian Priest and Finn Balor)
Latino World Order (Rey Mysterio, Santos Escobar, and Joaquin Wilde/Cruz Del Toro) vs Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford):
The dynamic between The Street Profits and Lashley has been great. I was skeptical to see The Street Profits as heels at first, but they are doing a really good job. I would have thought last week Escobar would turn on Myserio to start the dissension of the LWO, but it seems as if we are holding off on that for a little while longer which is fine. Since Lashley and The Profits are the newer faction here, I’ll pick them and we can extend this feud out for a couple more weeks.
Winners: Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford)
Editor’s Note: Both del Toro and Wilde are out. Rumors abound on the mystery partner.
WWE Women’s Championship: Iyo Sky vs Charlotte Flair vs Asuka:
One day we will get our one-on-one match on a premium live event between Sky and Asuka. I can not see Sky losing the title here unless someone from Damage CTRL is going to screw her over, but I do not see that happening until 2024. Sky has been doing a great job as champion and she should hold it for the rest of the year, have her retain here.
Winner: “And Still” Iyo Sky
John Cena and LA Knight vs The Bloodline (Jimmy Uso and Sola Sikoa):
The tribal chief is not going to be happy at the end of this match that is for sure. John Cena did not come back to WWE to lose, especially with how over LA Knight is on TV at the moment. I personally don’t understand what we are doing with The Bloodline now especially since Reigns seems to be on a one-month appearance deal. LA Knight should pin Sikoa as that begins his huge push going into 2024.
Winners: John Cena and LA Knight
Last Man Standing Match: World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins vs Shinsuke Nakamura:
The Seth Rollins fan in me is nervous about this one. As Rollins should be holding this title proudly into Wrestlemania to wrestle Gunther I wouldn’t be surprised if somehow he ends up losing here. This feud has been one of the best things going on in WWE at the moment and in my opinion is Nakamura’s best work. The question truly for this match is what happens next? They haven’t really been building anyone else to challenge Rollins or Nakamura after this match, which will grow into a bigger problem to close out the year. Call me biased, but he’s gotta win this one he’ll be standing proud holding up his title and please Priest don’t get involved.
Winner: “And Still” Seth Rollins
