WWE Fastlane was nothing short of a blockbuster event for the wrestling fans. The Smackdown exclusive pay per view which beamed from Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio featured high octane action in the title matches.
All the four titles on Smackdown were defended in the final pay per view before Wrestlemania 34.
AJ Styles defeated John Cena, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, Baron Corbin and Kevin Owens in the six-pack challenge to retain his WWE title. The ‘Phenomenal One’ pinned Kevin Owens to win the face and go to Wrestlemania 34 as the WWE champion.
With this, AJ Styles versus Shinsuke Nakamura has been CONFIRMED for the grandest stage of them all. Earlier in the event, ‘The King of Strong Style’ defeated former United States Champion Rusev.
Talking about the United States championship, Randy Orton beat Bobby Roode to win his first ever US title. The ‘Viper’ became the 10th WWE grand slam champion after winning the match.
