Not many WWE fans enjoyed this week's edition of SmackDown Live on Tuesday night, and that's clear to see in the reaction by the WWE Universe to the announcement of the new main event match to take place at Fastlane next month.
Before SmackDown took place, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were already facing AJ Styles in the main event of Fastlane for the WWE Championship, but on this week's show, it was supposed to be turned into a fatal four-way, with the winner of Baron Corbin vs Dolph Ziggler being added to the match.
At the start of the show, however, both Owens and Zayn attacked Corbin and Ziggler in order to stop them from having their match. SmackDown commissioner reacted to this by giving Baron and Dolph a shot at getting into the Fastlane main event.
Shane booked Corbin to face Owens, while Ziggler would face Zayn, and if Dolph or Baron win, they are in the title match at Fastlane. Shane also said if Kevin or Sami get involved in the other's match, they are out of the Fastlane match.
The Lone Wolf managed to hit The Prizefighter with the End of Days for the three count to book his spot at Fastlane, while The Showoff dodged The Underdog from the Underground's Helluva Kick to set up his own super kick for the three count and book his spot for the pay-per-view too.
This means the main event of Fastlane on March 11 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio will be AJ Styles defending the WWE title in a fatal five-way against Dolph Ziggler, Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn.
It comes as no surprise that considering the amount of multi-man matches WWE is booking at the moment that the WWE Universe is absolutely hating on having another one at Fastlane next month.
It pretty much looks like WWE is going through the motions and keeping each superstar they have occupied until WrestleMania 34 in April without going too in-depth into a storyline. As a result, the WWE Championship picture now looks rather messy.
This, in turn, is making the product slightly boring to watch for some fans, as now everyone is getting a shot at the title, rather than upholding the value of winning the Royal Rumble.
