Could this be the best way to end Fastlane?

Published Add your comment

This Sunday night, all eyes will be on WWE Fastlane as the newest PPV looks set to thrill the audience and set the stage for WrestleMania XXXI.

Daniel Bryan vs Roman Reigns to decide who faces Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, Sting and Triple H face to face and Rusev vs John Cena part I.

It should be a great night on Sunday but given the chorus of boos that met the conclusion of their last PPV the Royal Rumble, this may prove to be WWE's saving grace before WrestleMania.

However I have written several times in the past few weeks how the WWE have dug themselves into a hole by placing Reigns and Bryan in the main event.

Either they allow Reigns to win and go to WrestleMania as originally planned and face more boos and perhaps even boos at WrestleMania, or they let Bryan win and do an exact repeat of last years WrestleMania.


I have wondered for a long time how they were going to resolve the match and who would be going to WrestleMania.

But is it possible that they Reigns will win and the WWE will be able to use the boos that stem from the WWE Universe's golden boy losing?

A superstar costing Daniel Bryan the match would A) validate any boos from Reigns winning and B) set up a great feud for Bryan at WrestleMania.

So with all that a very big possibility for Sunday night, the question would become, who would cost Bryan the match?

The three contenders

There are three men who could be perfect for a WrestleMania clash with Daniel Bryan and would bring the crowd to their feet in San Francisco on March 29th.

Seth Rollins

It has long been expected that Seth Rollins would take on Randy Orton at WrestleMania following Rollins actions which put Orton out of commission back in November.

However Orton has now been pulled from all advertising for any televised shows up to and even past the big event next month.

That would free up Mr Money in the Bank for Mania and as the company's top heel right now, for him not to have a match for Fastlane is quite surprising.

Rollins vs Bryan at WrestleMania would be incredible as it would literally be the confrontation between Rollins and the entire WWE Universe that we have been waiting for.


Several times now we have seen videos promoting the return of the Celtic Warrior Sheamus.

It is entirely likely that he will return at Fastlane and there have been rumours for several months now that they may bring him back as a heel.

There is no better way to bring a former fan favourite in as a heel than to have him cost the biggest fan favourite a huge match.

Bryan and Sheamus have squared off at WrestleMania before with the two meeting at Mania XXVIII in what was a very short match.

Sheamus hit the Brogue kick within seconds and got the pinfall so we never really got to see what kind of a match the two could produce.

Dolph Ziggler

A bit of a long shot really but it has been rumoured for a while that Bryan wants a WrestleMania match with Dolph Ziggler.

Ziggler may be one of the most popular stars right now but he has been a heel before and just as with Sheamus he would need something big to turn his character.

Ziggler certainly deserves a big name match at WrestleMania after his performances in the last few months and one with Bryan would give him a feud that would grab the attention of the entire WWE Universe.
