TRIU: WWE Fast Lane Review (2/22/15)…

Memphis, TN


6 Man Tag Match: Seth Rollins, Big Show & Kane vs. Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowand & Ryback (Winners: Rollins, Kane and Show) – This was a great match that saw Ziggler and the boys put up one hell of a fight. The moment of the night came after the match as Seth and the boys were beating down Ziggler and the guys. Randy Orton returned to a great pop and made the save chasing Seth off thru the crowd…


Singles Match: Golddust vs. Stardust (Winner: Goldust via Pinfall) – This match was a great one that saw the Rhodes brothers go out there and put on a show. The match kind of had a clunky ending with Golddust winning on a suspicious 3 count and Cody being upset after the loss…

We get a video segment showing a feud between John Stewart and Seth Rollins that began on RAW and continued till this week. Now backstage Golddust is talking to Dusty Rhodes and Stardust comes up and attacks Golddust and puts him down. Up next we have the tag team championship match between the Uso’s and Cesaro and Kidd…


Tag Team Title Match: © Uso’s vs. Cesaro & Kidd(Winners: © Kidd &Cesaro via Pinfall) – This was a amazing match between two young and top teams in the WWE. The Uso’d seemed to have the upper hand but at the end of a fast paced spot Kidd was able to hit his finisher and get the pin to let him and Cesaro leave Fast Lane as champs…


We now get a video segment setting up the Sting and HHH feud from Survivor Series to the past Monday’s RAW. Up next the confrontation between HHH and Sting!! HHH is in ring first, he cuts a promo about being a WWE guy and this being his home. Next out we have Sting!!! HHH now begins to rundown WCW and tout his respect for Sting. He also takes responsibility for the demise of WCW, he also offers him a chance to walk away. HHH even goes as far as to offer Sting a spot in the WWE HOF to go away. HHH tries to cheap shot Sting but Sting block and drops HHH. HHH then hits Sting with a mike and the beat down begins, he goes under the ring and pulls out a sledgehammer. When he turns around to use it Sting has his bat and backs HHH into the corner and points to the Mainia sign. Sting gets HHH to agree to a match at WM31 then as he turns his back HHH attacks and Sting beats him down and hits him with the Scorpion death lock and walks away. We see a video package of the Paul Heyman on Miz TV. Up next is the Diva’s title match between Paige and Nikki Bella…



Diva’s Title Match: © Nikki Bella w/Brie vs. Paige (Winner: © Nikki Bella via Pinfall) – This match was anti climactic to say the least. I know that both of these girls can go so why this match was cut shot is beyond me. It also had a sloppy finish as Nikki had to hold the tights in order to get the win…

They show a video package about the Total Diva’s at the Oscars. We also get the official announcement that Sting and HHH will face off in a match at WM31!!! Up next we have the IC title match between Ambrose and BNB…


IC Title Match: © Wade Barrett vs. Dean Ambrose (Winner: © Barrett via DQ) – This match was a great match as both Ambrose and Barrett both had their moments. But in the end Ambrose snaps and gets disqualified for not pulling off when the ref said so. Ambrose knocks out Barrett and takes off with the IC title leaving Wade in the ring…


As we come back the lights go down and the druids come out, Takers music hits and out comes a coffin. The coffin is rolled out to the ring and out pops…Bray Wyatt. He cuts a promo about the Undertaker about how he is weak and broken and just a shell of what he once was. After calling him weak Bray then claims that at WM31 he will claim the soul of the Undertaker. He lays back down in the casket and is taken away. We now get analysis from the panel about Bray calling out Taker. Up next is the US Title match between Cena and Rusev…


US Title Match: © Rusev vs. John Cena (Winner: © Rusev via Submission) – This match was about as exciting as I thought it would be. It took everything Rusev had and some help from Lana. But at the end of the day the streak is not over and Cena was left unconscious as Rusev celebrated…

Before the main event we get the Pre Show panel who give us analysis about the Cena/Rusev match and the PPV overall. We then get a video package hyping the main event which is Bryan vs. Reigns to see who will face WHC Brock Lesnar at WM31…


#1 Contenders Match: Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan (Winner: Roman Reigns via Pinfall) – It was a brutal match that saw both men look really good. Reigns just couldn’t be beat and Bryan tried everything that he could to get the victory. Post match Bryan confronts Reigns and tells him to beat Lesnars butt, and shakes Reigns hand…

Overall Rating: A- Good but not great…
