Tonight’s Fastlane event is the second pay-per-view in a row where the women’s roster has been put on the back burner with poor booking. Regardless, it is the last stop on the road to WrestleMania that takes place next month.
The show will include a rematch from Elimination Chamber where the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships are on the line. Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler will defend against Bianca Belair and SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks. This tag team title match will start the show. Belair faces Banks for her title at WrestleMania so some sort of rift between the two tonight is likely to happen.
Banks retained her title against Jax on Friday’s SmackDown. This was thanks to Baszler who inadvertently hit her own tag team partner instead of Banks. Later in the night, Baszler faced Belair but the match was cut short with an attack from Natalya and Tamina.
Other than this one match on the card there will be an intergender match between Alexa Bliss and Randy Orton. This match could go many different ways with The Fiend expected to return in some capacity. For the past few months, Bliss and Orton have had a crazy feud and tonight may end it once and for all.
