Down the street half a block away, in a familiar place, regular people agree with each other in smoke signals. Each in turn interprets the law as aging with its eyesight failing, but me, I'm just here to liveblog a pro wrestling show, folks.

Pre-show begins with Renee Young welcoming us to the show and introducing her panel, consisting of Booker T and Peter Rosenberg right now. She tosses to Charly Caruso in the social media lounge and Booker wonders where his "dirty bird" Tom Phillips is. He has, apparently, graciously passed the social media lounge seat to Charly. Samoa Joe will be joining her later for a Q&A.

Back to the main panel, they shill for the Network a bit, and then on to video for and discussion of Reigns/Strowman to kick things off. We cut backstage with Noam Dar and Alicia Fox when Brian Kendrick rolls up. He says this is a golden opportunity and he hopes Dar won't make the same mistake Tozawa did.

Noam promises that they'll be a quality team and he'll do anything to win for Fox. Kendrick hopes no one melts down and Alicia objects. Noam says tonight's gonna be great because they're gonna win and celebrate together, but Kendrick "doesn't do crazy" and leaves.

Panel discussion then shifts to the Raw Tag Team Championship and Cesaro and Sheamus join the panel, fired up and upset about not being in the match. Cesaro goes off, saying people would rather see him wrestle than talk, and the people oblige him by making a lot of noise.

Mick Foley is backstage on the phone with Stephanie McMahon and she berates him about making sure the show goes smoothly. Jinder Mahal interrupts to inform them that he and Rusev are no longer a tag team because of Rusev's attitude. Rusev rolls up and Jinder says he wants a chance to prove himself. Mick offers a Best of Seven series and they turn it down, so Mick says he'll make sure he finds suitable competition for them both tonight.

Mick wanders off and Steph is still on the phone. Uh-oh...


The panel moves on to Zayn/Joe next, and soon enough we're in the lounge for Joe's Q&A. He's asked why he sided with HHH and he says it's simple. HHH gave him an on opportunity to make an impact and he took it, just like anybody else in the world would have. He's asked how he's going to destroy Sami Zayn and he says he's done it once and he'll do it again, punishing Sami over and over until he's broken.

Joe will slap a man in front of his family and make his children watch. Last question is what his plan for WrestleMania is, and that's real simple. Whatever he does, he will make his presence known full-force and without reproach. But he leaves us in suspense as to what might constitute that and we go back to the panel.

We get a recap of Seth's segment from Raw and are then promised an exclusive look at his rehab tomorrow night before moving onto the Women's Championship. Another Austin Aries comeback vignette plays and we have our first match!

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

Tozawa and Kendrick to start, but Brian tags Dar right in. Circling, collar and elbow, Akira gets Noam in the ropes and breaks with a shout. Dar runs into a forearm, Tozawa gives him a bunch more, whip, blind tag but Akira doesn't notice and Brian blindsides him. Double suplex but Swann comes in for the save and they fend them off with dropkicks.

Going for stereo dives but Fox puts herself in front of her man to block them and we take a little break.

Back from our break and Kendrick goes for a cover on Tozawa to no avail. Stomps to the midsection and a clubbing blow to the back, straight suplex and a cover can't do it so he grabs a reverse chinlock. Akira off the ropes, he runs into a big boot but recovers and snaps off a Frankensteiner! Rich in, cleaning house, rolling solebutt, leaping stomp to the back, big splash... NO GOOD!

Setting up the Tiger Driver but Brian interferes and gives Dar room for a back body drop. Swann heads out to take care of Kendrick but Noam is on him and throws him into the ringpost with a sickening thud. Back in the ring, shoulder armbreaker, working it over in a wristlock, and Kendrick tags in to choke Swann in the corner. Trying for the Captain's Hook, Rich fights out and Brian suplexes him in his corner before making a tag.

Dar with stomps, going after the leg now, suplex takes him over and he goes back to the arm with a shoulder armbar. Swann out with body blows, Dar fires uppercuts back, Rich rolls a backslide over and connects with a roundhouse kick! Tozawa in, kick, lands on his feet on a sunset flip, kick, senton... not enough! Going for the Everest German suplex but Dar tags in.

Tozawa dumps him and tags Swann in, they dump Kendrick over and get fired up, off the ropes... suicide dive and a tope con giro! Back in the ring Tozawa hits Kendrick with a sliding knee, Dar kicks his leg out but Swann kicks Noam's head off! Rich up top, dive dodged, Dar tries to steal it with a sit-down pin but Swann gets the knockout kick. One for Kendrick as well, Akira in to hit the snap German suplex on Kendrick, Swann goes up top...

Akira Tozawa & Rich Swann win by pinfall with a Phoenix Splash from Swann on Noam Dar.

Back to the panel, they shill the Network a bit before moving on to the Universal Championship to close out the pre-show.


Main show begins with a video package about the importance of momentum and how bad stopping is, because we're all about going fast at Fastlane.

Sami Zayn vs. Samoa Joe

Circling, tentative, Sami clearly doesn't want to get mauled right out the gate. Joe gets a leg kick in and nearly hobbles Zayn with his first blow! Knucklelock fakeout into a wristlock, Sami grabs a side headlock, gets shot off, and Joe kicks him to the mat. Kick on kick, roll-through to the kneebar but Zayn gets the ropes! Whip off the ropes, Sami up and over, trying for an arm drag but Joe blocks.

Sami gets a tilt-a-whirl headscissors and takes it to Samoa, pushing him in the corner with strikes. On the break, Joe fires off a jab that absolutely levels the underdog! More strikes, Zayn trying to get back in it but Samoa sends him in the corner for the enzuigiri and lays him out again. A heavy right hand, Joe draws him up and Sami fires back, so Samoa does a waistlock takedown to set up a deathlock bow-and-arrow.

Zayn reverses to a pin for one and Joe once again lays waste to him, this time with a single chop. Forearm, jab, jab, chop, Sami falls against the ropes but fires up and starts throwing forearms, only for Joe to roll through his legs and take him down! Standing surfboard applied before Joe takes a knee. Zayn's fired up and trying to escape, he flips through, up-kick, falling lariat takes the big man to the mat!

Behind him for the Blue Thunder Driver, Joe out with elbows but Sami holds on and hits it for a nearfall! Zayn heads to the apron and up to the top but Samoa is up and at 'em and runs over to meet him. Sami knocks him down after a struggle, leaps over, Joe catches him with the Manhattan Drop, Mafia kick, running senton... NO GOOD! Drawing him to his feet, whip in the corner, Sami rushes out into a snap scoop powerslam.

Zayn crawling desperately to the ropes as Joe looks on like a hungry predator. Firing off jab after jab, Sami tries to cover up and ends up collapsing when Samoa goes off the ropes. Small package attempt fails, Zayn gets boots up in the corner and climbs once more, but Joe is ready for him. He's thinking Muscle Buster but Sami fights him off, so Samoa settles for the enzuigiri once more.

Joe climbs after him, thinking superplex, Sami blocking, he tries a sunset flip but Samoa blocks him. Zayn yanks him down into the turnbuckle and goes for the Helluva Kick but the corner Rock Bottom counters! The Coquina Clutch is on! It's only a matter of seconds...

Samoa Joe wins by submission with the Coquina Clutch.


Backstage, Charly interviews Bayley. She asks if there are any extra nerves, and Bayley says there's tons of 'em. Charlotte has the advantage here because of her streak and Dana Brooke, but she's up for the challenge. And come to think of it, if Charlotte is the champions she brags she is, how about she leaves Dana Brooke in the locker room and they find out who the badder woman is.

Nia Jax rolls up and tells Bayley she has so much to worry about. She's gonna go out there and rip her best friends to shreds and then, if Bayley still has the title, she's gonna come take it from her.

Enzo & Big Cass make their entrance, they do the deal. They say the Club say they're all about being mean and making green, but Enzo & Cass are all about [Local Milwaukee Reference]. Enzo says the Club looks like two thumbs up and they don't need to pick them up to drop them where they stand. They wanna claim that they're Too Sweet, but they're gonna take the titles, SAWFT, etc.

Enzo & Big Cass vs. the Club (Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows) (c) (WWE Raw Tag Team Championship)

Anderson catches him with a Sick Kick to block the tag!

Stomps to the head, uppercuts in the corner, tag to Gallows. Sex Ferguson in with punches in the corner and he knocks Amore down with a slicing right that nearly ends it. Big right connects, whip to the corner, Enzo dodges a corner avalanche and an elbow drop but he's reaching for the wrong corner. Anderson tags back in, corner dropkick is dodged and Machine Gun gets crotched!

A boot for Gallows but Anderson is right up with a schoolboy nearfall. He runs into a boot, Enzo makes the tag, the Rocket Launcher connects... GALLOWS YANKS ENZO OUT OF THE RING! He shoves Cass into the barricade when he comes over to fight!

Enzo dives on Gallows, but when he tries to come back in the ring...

The Club win by pinfall with a Sick Kick from Karl Anderson on Enzo Amore, retaining the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship.

Enzo, it must be noted, had a foot on the ropes but Gallows shoved it off without the referee noticing.


Mick is backstage telling Steph that Fastlane is off to an amazing start, but she's upset that she has to watch on her phone, because her plane is stuck. She doesn't think she's gonna make it before the show's over, so he needs her to make sure to the top title matches go off without a hitch. He tries to tell her to relax but she says that does the opposite and she wants to stay on the phone with him for the rest of the show. She wants to talk about Joe but asks if she's on speakerphone.

Mick picks up the handset and says absolutely not before agreeing when the line cuts and he looks at the handset, bemused.

Commentary recaps the Jinder/Rusev stuff from the pre-show, so those matches are up now. Jinder and Rusev enter and bicker about whose match is first and get into it, brawling punch-for-punch! Rusev throws Jinder out of the ring and Mahal returns the favor by throwing him into the ringpost and clobbering him with a jumping knee strike! Cesaro and Sheamus come out, so presumably they'll be their opponents tonight!

Cesaro vs. Jinder Mahal

Collar and elbow, Cesaro grabs a waistlock, Jinder reverses to a hammerlock and Cesaro gets out with a flying mare.

Shush the crowd before a second, Rusev bails and Show follows, shoving him into the barricade. Back in the ring, Big blocks a punch and hammers Rusev to the mat before standing on his Bulgarian back and using the ropes for leverage.

Big Show wins by pinfall with the WMD.


Enzo & Big Cass sell chicken by suggesting that Enzo may have known it biblically, once again.

Backstage, Charly interviews Kevin Owens, but he cuts off the question, asking why this is the biggest match. Is it because Goldberg beat Brock Lesnar? Who has he beat in the ten years before that? Nobody. He's beaten one man, and that's not impressive. Whereas KO has beaten everybody from Dean Ambrose to John Cena, and you really think he's gonna let somebody he doesn't respect take the title from him?

No way, he's gonna outwrestle Bill and beat him and whoever else they want to put in front of him, whether it's Sami Zayn, Brock Lesnar, or the Rock. Because there's a reason he's Universal Champion, and it's that he's the best, and not even the mighty Goldberg can change that. This is the Kevin Owens Show, and it will continue to be for as long as he likes.

Austin Aries is at the announce desk and he wants everybody to take another look at his beautiful package, so that's what we're gonna do.

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

Circling, Neville with a waistlock but he shoves Jack off right away. Circling again, collar and elbow, the King grabs a waistlock but the Gentleman slips out and grabs his leg.

Break made, he's right on the arm again, shot off, headstand in the corner, faking him out every time he runs in and getting back up when Neville yanks him down.

Kick into uppercuts, Neville with a headlock, gets shot off, dropdown, leapfrog caught but Jack throws a dropkick and the King bails. He yanks Gallagher out of the ring but eats a pair of forearms before he can throw Gallagher into the barricade hard. He rolls the Gentleman back in, clutching his neck, and the King heads up top to prowl before firing a missile dropkick off that gets two.

Running stomp, using the ropes to grind Jack's head down, smash into the turnbuckles, kick to the gut and he stomps the proverbial mudhole. Double thrust to the gut gets Gallagher back in it, uppercuts, King cuts him off with a knee and throws a snap suplex. In the corner with a forearm, that gets two, and then more grinding the face into the mat before seeing up a rear chinlock.

Jack fights to his feet and out with forearms, hammering away. Ducks a lariat, dropkick, a second and Neville bails again... GALLAGHER FLIES, SUICIDE DIVE!

Bicycle kick from the King earns another headbutt... NOT ENOUGH! Neville crawls in the corner, Gallagher has it set up... the King dodges the dropkick and kicks Jack to the apron! Struggling in the corner, Gallagher knocks him down! He sets the champ up in the corner and snaps off a headbutt that leaves Neville out cold! Jack pulls him in but the King is alive and drops him with an avalanche Gourdbuster! Up top, Neville's done playing...

Neville wins by pinfall with Red Arrow, retaining the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.


Charly interviews Paul Heyman, asking if Brock's here. He realizes they've never met and introduces himself, saying yes, his client has the right to be here tonight. Whether his client decides to exercise that option is privileged information, but whoever wins tonight, Brock wins. If it's Goldberg, Brock gets to win the title, and if Owens wins, he'll do so by exposing a weakness in Goldberg that Brock can take advantage of.

Big E does the thing, so it's time for New Day to be on the show. They come out with an umbrella and move it to reveal they have a cart full of New Day Pops! Big E has a real carnal desire for this cart, I tell you what. Xavier Woods says they started with a t-shirt and a dream, but the crowd's voices were heard. This prompts E to sing a bit of Randy Orton's theme.

The dream of Booty-Os turned into a reality, and now... Big breaks into song again, and they accuse him of sipping on something. Kofi Kingston says somebody has an opportunity, which gives them a chance to do the owl gimmick, and he says we have an opportunity to make our voices heard. So that's why they brought this New Day bike that they skeeted stickers all over, and they're gonna ride it long, they're gonna ride it hard and put it away wet, all the way to WrestleMania.

Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns

Circling, collar and elbow but Braun forces Roman right into the corner and chucks him across the ring, roaring at him!

Dragging him up the vest and throwing him in the corner, body avalanche and a biel give way to a kick in the corner and another biel before Braun goes to work with a trapezius claw.

The Big Dog powers out, wristlock, going for the Samoan drop but Braun blocks, fireman's carry... Samoan drop of his own! Strowman walks around the body before settling on a big splash for two. Rear chinlock applied, Roman struggling, but Braun adds crossface blows to stop him cold before switching to a reverse chinlock. Reigns claws at Strowman's beard and draws himself to his feet and out with body blows.

He throws Roman back in the ring but his knee is bugging him from the missed kick and he's hobbling a bit. Roman hits the spear clean in the middle of the ring... BRAUN KICKED OUT!

The Big Dog to his feet first, he calls for the spear again but Braun goozles him and throws him in the corner. Charging in, Roman ducks and the ring shakes! Superman Punch! Braun on his feet.. a second one staggers him and knocks him into the second rope! Criss-cross, Roman ducks a lariat but gets run over by the monster! Braun heads to the apron... he's climbing up top!


Roman Reigns wins by pinfall with the spear.


Mick Foley is walking backstage looking for Samoa Joe, and he finds him. He says that Stephanie isn't here but he knows she'd want KO to win by himself, and the Owens he knows wouldn't want him getting involved either, so he tells Joe he'd like for this to be the last time he sees his face tonight, and if not there'll be hell to pay. Joe walks off without a word.

Bayley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair (WWE Raw Women's Championship)

It must be noted that Charlotte made a show of sending Dana Brooke to the back during her entrance.

Commentary pushes some WrestleMania hype and pumps up Raw Talk before doing the Rollins recap again.

Goldberg vs. Kevin Owens (c) (WWE Universal Championship)

Owens bails before the bell even rings! He takes his sweet time, hoping to get inside Goldberg's head, but eventually gets back on the apron... and leaves again. Back to the apron, a foot over the middle rope... and back out. Chilling on the apron like it's a tag match, he hops in... and slides back out. Taking a nice tour of the aisle now, with Goldberg pacing like a captive lion as referee Chad Patton tries to keep everybody on an even keel.

KO in, he wants the bell rung... Here comes Chris Jericho! The bell rings! SPEAR! Bill has him hooked...
