NEOSI’s WWE Fastlane Predictions

Tonight is WWE Fastlane, the last RAW Pay-Per-View before WrestleMania. All of the Superstars will be trying to get some momentum before the “Show of Shows” and it can start Sunday. Some of the big matches on this card include Kevin Owens defending his Universal Title against Goldberg, Roman Reigns going one-on-one with Braun Strowman and Bayley defending her RAW Women’s Championship against Charlotte.

NEOSI’s Matt Loede, Vince McKee, Payton Vince and I are here to predict who we think will get victories tonight. Check out our picks below:

Universal Championship- Kevin Owens (c) vs. Goldberg

VM: Everyone believes it is a forgone conclusion that Goldberg wins, then drops the belt to Lesnar at Mania.  Those people would be wrong.  I see Owens retaining in a shocker as Lesnar interferes to cost Goldberg the match.  Owens will defend against and beat Jericho at Mania as well.  It won’t be until the summer that Balor returns to take the strap off of KO. Winner: Kevin Owens

PV: Winner: Goldberg

ML: Winner: Goldberg

EM: As much as I hope KO defends his title and takes on Jericho at ‘Mania, it’s super unlikely because McMahon wants his big matchup of Goldberg and Lesnar to be for the top prize on RAW. Goldberg wins this match in what could be less than five minutes. Winner: Goldberg

Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman

VM: Should be interesting to see where they go with Strowman’s character after Reigns beats him cleanly and quickly. Winner: Roman Reigns

PV: Winner: Braun Strowman

ML: Winner: Braun Strowman

EM: I’m going to go for a Strowman victory here, as Undertaker gets involved to cost Reigns the match and set up their ‘Mania match. Winner: Braun Strowman

RAW Women’s Championship- Bayley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

VM: The Queen of the Women’s Division Charlotte, reclaims her title and stays unbeaten in single action heading into Wrestlemania as Banks turns on Bayley to cost her the title. Winner: Charlotte

PV: Winner: Bayley (DQ)

ML: Winner: Bayley

EM: Charlotte does not lose on PPV and will not lose tonight. I think that time will come at WrestleMania, but she needs to win the belt here for that to come to fruition. Winner: Charlotte Flair

Samoa Joe vs. Sami Zayn

VM: I see Zayn taking this one in an upset, but much like he did last year with Owens at times, allow himself to obtain a gigantic post-match beat down.  This will further help Zayn get over as an underdog and Joe as a hit man type character. Winner: Sami Zayn

PV: Winner: Samoa Joe

ML: Winner: Samoa Joe

EM: Samoa Joe is receiving almost the same push as Balor did when he made the jump to the red brand. As talented as Zayn is, he is just here for fodder for Samoa Joe. Winner: Samoa Joe

WWE Cruiserweight Championship- Neville (c) vs. Jack Gallagher

VM: The WWE would be insane to take the title off of Neville heading into Mania, they won’t.  This one is a gimme pick! Winner: Neville

PV: Winner: Neville

ML: Winner: Neville

EM: Neville is a great heel and even better staple for this division. The guy to take the belt off him is Austin Aries, who should be returning sooner rather than later. Winner: Neville

RAW Tag Team Championship- Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (c) vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass

VM: The WWE creative team is so convinced that when a guy or team is this incredibly over, then they need to lose because it won’t crush their popularity and their opponents can use the rub.  That’s why Ziggler barely ever won as a face and why Gallows & Anderson will not be dropping the titles. Winners: Gallows and Anderson

PV: Winner: Gallows and Anderson

ML: Winner: Enzo Amore and Big Cass

EM: Gallows and Anderson are finally getting the respect they deserve. I think Enzo and Cass will split up before The Club loses the belts. Winners: Gallows and Anderson

Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax

VM: How many times does Jax need to crush Banks before it gets old?  Perhaps one more time as it will once again go the way of Jax easily Sunday night. Winner: Nia Jax

PV: Winner: Sasha Banks

ML: Winner: Sasha Banks

EM: Basic WWE logic says because Banks has been getting destroyed, she’ll get the victory here. That is all. Winner: Sasha Banks

Rich Swann & Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick & Noam Dar

VM: Winners: Swann/Tozawa

PV: Winners: The Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar

ML: Winners: The Brian Kendrick and Noam Dar

EM: Tozawa can get a PPV win here and will, considering he is one of the only Cruiserweights who still has credibility. Babyfaces for the win. Winners: Rich Swann and Akira Tozawa
