WWE: Ranking the Fastlane 2018 matches by projected quality

The Uso's have beaten every team on the SmackDown roster, and locked them in the Uso Penitentiary.

Roode and Orton's bout for the USA title has betting odds at a dead draw (-120).

Charlotte Flair will be going up against another member of the Riott Squad. For months, Shane McMahon's beef has been with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, and vice versa, while Ziggler has mostly been floundering in go-nowhere gimmicks and storylines, with no real, long-term feud to speak of as of this writing.

US Champion Bobby Roode also faces a huge challenge as he puts the title on the line against 13-time world champion Randy Orton. Rusev hasn't exactly been in the best form in the ring over the a year ago, but when he's on he's one of the best wrestlers in the company, making him a stern test for Nakamura leading up to his match against the WWE Champion at WrestleMania 34. If there's a title change on this show then this would seem to be the most likely place to do it with either Orton or late addition Mahal taking the title.

AJ Styles retains the WWE Championship.

The Usos recently renewed their rivalry against The New Day.

In the other matches on the card, Becky Lynch teams with Naomi to face the team of Natalya and Ms. Money in the Bank victor, Carmella, in a tag team match.

Women's Championship: Charlotte Flair (c) vs. The match was already a big one before John Cena faced AJ Styles for the opportunity to be part of it.

The card also brings us action from Royal Rumble victor Shinsuke Nakamura, who has mostly been quiet since that monumental victory.

John Cena is determined to seal a WrestleMania main-event spot by winning the WWE Championship in a Six-Pack Challenge at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Don't expect Charlotte to lose her title, either.

Styles is looking towards possibly headlining WrestleMania with Nakamura, in a match that many fans are stoked to see in WWE.

WWE Fastlane will take place on Sunday, March 11. Free advice: Book a competitive Nakamura vs. Zayn on Smackdown before WrestleMania to show the television viewers who didn't see their classic NXT Takeover match just how good a Nakamura match can be.

Live beginning at approximately 7:30 p.m. if a kickoff show match is held. I literally said, 'Jinder, what do you think?' I wanted to know what he thought, if he was okay with it, because that's important to me that, 'I'm not better than you.
