Nakamura vs. Rusev, women's tag match set for WWE Fastlane
Two more matches have been added to the card for Sunday’s Fastlane pay-per-view.
Before he challenges for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania, Shinsuke Nakamura will be in action against Rusev on Sunday night. That was announced after Nakamura accepted a challenge from Rusev during a backstage interview on SmackDown tonight. Rusev interrupted him and wanted revenge after Nakamura defeated Aiden English last Tuesday, with the story being that English getting hit with a knee to the throat made him unable to sing this week.
AJ Styles will defend his WWE Championship against Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler, and John Cena in a six-pack challenge at Fastlane, and the winner will go on to face Nakamura at WrestleMania on April 8th.
Naomi & Becky Lynch vs. Natalya & Carmella was also made official for Sunday later in the show. Naomi proposed the idea to Natalya after Lynch tapped out Carmella in a singles match.
With the two additions, the card for Fastlane is up to six matches. Here’s the updated lineup:
WWE Champion AJ Styles defending against Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler, and John Cena in a six-pack challenge
