After a few days of online speculation as to what role Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler will be playing at this Sunday's Fastlane, WWE have finally announced a six-man tag match featuring both.
It was confirmed on last night's Smackdown that Rollins, Big Show and Kane will take on Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback in a six-man tag match at the final PPV before Wrestlemania.
It was always going to be the most likely scenario after weeks of the two teams saving each other from handicap situations, but fans will still feel short changed going into this a show that is supposed to create meaningful storylines for the biggest event of the year.
Why not just put Ziggler against Rollins?
Dolph Ziggler and Seth Rollins one-on-one would be enough to main event any pay-per-view, yet WWE have once again gone for the easiest option instead of allowing the two athletic superstars to steal the show.
A tag team match would be a great mid-card filler leading up to the main event of Daniel Bryan up against Roman Reigns and it seems WWE are aware that if Rollins and Ziggler were given free reign, they would upstage Bryan and Roman.

Rollins moved down the pecking order
Given the controversy that Rollins has been embroiled in over the past week or so, it seems accurate that he isn't being properly built up for this weekend's event. Especially since speculation still suggests that he will be cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase at next month's event.
So, once again the WWE Universe are forced to endure the same six man tag match we have seen week after week on Raw and Smackdown. What makes this one any different? There isn't even any added stipulations for the Universe to anticipate.
That being said this is only one of two matches on the card that has no added stipulation, with the four main titles on the line and a main event shot at Wrestlemania also hanging in the balance in the main event.
Triple H will also finally stand face to face with Sting and this will somehow lead to a fantasy clash at next month's Wrestlemania event.
Fastlane was always going have to be set up to deliver after the disappointment of last month's Royal Rumble pay-per-view and WWE have managed to put together a decent card, despite the fact that WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is disappointingly nowhere to be seen.
