Raw WWE Fastlane 2017 Spoilers

WWE Universal Championship Match: Kevin Owens (c) vs. Goldberg

Goldberg is winning the championship, and I'm not a fan of it. I don't understand why WWE feels the need to put the title on the line with Goldberg/Lesnar as that means our Universal Championship will be tied up with one of those two and not defended on a regular basis. It also means Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho get screwed out of their rightful world title match and downgraded to the United States Championship level. This is exactly the type of booking that annoys people that follow the product all year long. It all goes to waste come February. I'm holding out hope that instead of Jericho costing Owens the match, Lesnar shows up and interferes, screwing Goldberg out of the title so he can't win the championship.

PREDICTION: Goldberg will squash Owens.

Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns

Damn it, Roman is going to win here so he can look strong heading into his match against The Undertaker, isn't he? It's completely unnecessary, as this is Roman Reigns we're talking about, and he's a multi-time world champion who has been booked strong for a long while. All this will do is hurt Strowman.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns is victorious.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match: Neville (c) vs. Jack Gallagher

I'm pretty surprised they went with Jack Gallagher here instead of a generic rematch with Rich Swann, as that's the direction they seemed to be heading—not that I'm complaining, that is, as I prefer Gallagher to Swann. It's too early for Neville to drop the title right now, so I'll have to assume he's going to retain here and at the very earliest would lose at WrestleMania, but I don't think that's going to happen, either. Gallagher could very well be the next champion, although my gut reaction is saying Cedric Alexander will win it beforehand somewhere around May or June.

PREDICTION: Neville wins.

WWE Raw Tag Team Championship Match: Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows (c) vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass

I assume it's too early to take the titles away from Anderson and Gallows, so I expect to see the champs retain by hook or by crook. Perhaps Sheamus and Cesaro get in the way?

PREDICTION: I don't think WWE even knows for sure what they're going to do with these belts for WrestleMania, but I do think they will still be on Anderson and Gallows no matter how they get to that conclusion.

WWE Raw Women's Championship Match: Bayley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

PLEASE don't book Charlotte to win the title back. That story doesn't need to be done four times in a row. If you're so concerned with having her retain her pay-per-view record (which you really shouldn't be) then have her win by disqualification or count out, not by pinfall or submission. I'll be so pissed if Charlotte becomes champion again, but at this point, I can definitely see WWE doing that.

PREDICTION: I'd be foolish not to think Charlotte doesn't just win the belt back, right? *eye roll*

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 2/20/2017)

Let's take a look at some of the potential matches that seem as though WWE will be adding...

WWE United States Championship Match

At this point, I don't expect Chris Jericho to defend the United States Championship as I think Sami Zayn was being set up as the next in line, but he'll be facing Samoa Joe instead. My guess is Jericho stays away and interferes in the Goldberg match instead.

PREDICTION: I think there's no United States title match at Fastlane.

Sami Zayn vs. Samoa Joe

If they don't have Sami Zayn facing Chris Jericho for the United States Championship, they'll have him lose to Samoa Joe. This could actually also be a United States Championship match, or they might be setting this up for WrestleMania. I'm sure their plan was to have Seth Rollins face Samoa Joe, but that is out the window now, so either Joe gets a different opponent (Zayn) or he sits Fastlane out.

PREDICTION: Joe beats Zayn if the match even happens.
