Fastlane will be the final stop on the Road to WrestleMania and it will go a long way to shaping the big event in Dallas.

The main event has already been confirmed and for the second time in as many years, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will not be defended at February's event.

The two have been feuding over the title in recent weeks have have swapped possession of the belt numerous times.

Kalisto defeated Del Rio at the Royal Rumble to win the belt for a second time and now he is set to defend it at Fastlane.

The United States Championship is in a much different state than it was last year heading towards WrestleMania when Rusev was the champion.

After John Cena claimed it, his title reign would increase the value of the title culminating at Summer Slam where it was used in a Champion vs Champion match against then WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.

Now with the added prestige, Del Rio and Kalisto will battle for the right to be the defending champion at WrestleMania.

This is only the second match announced for the event but more title matches are expected to follow, most notably for the Diva's Championship.

Final stop

The main event in Cleveland will be a triple threat match between Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar for the right to face WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H at WrestleMania.

More title matches are expected for the night, but with the Intercontinental Champion in the main event, that title certainly won't be defended.

A lot of interest will surround the decision for the Diva's title with three of NXT's brightest prospects set to clash for the belt in the coming weeks.
