WWE Fastlane 2023 Pay-Per-View Online Results Predictions Spoilers Review
WWE Fastlane 2023 Spoilers


Last Man Standing Match for World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

Well, that's one way to milk a rushed feud for an extra full month and come back around to a rematch despite how the champion is the one wanting to fight his challenger again instead of the other way around. Hey, at least it's a Last Man Standing match instead of just a regular singles match.

More interesting to me than the actual Rollins versus Nakamura situation is how this potentially sets up Damian Priest to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase. In theory, that can happen at any time. It doesn't need to be a brutal match like this. Buuuuuut, they've done enough of an emphasis on Rollins having a bad back that if they want to pull the trigger on this, it would make sense. Granted, it wouldn't make sense in my mind for Priest to win the title right now after just winning the tag titles, and I don't know where the title scene would go from there, AND they just introduced this special briefcase, so it doesn't make sense to already get rid of it. But the possibility of that happening is one of the biggest question marks here.

Otherwise, it's just a matter of Rollins retaining and that's it. He moves on after to a new opponent for Crown Jewel.

PREDICTION: Seth Rollins retains. SLIGHT chance Damian Priest cashes in Money in the Bank after that.

Triple Threat Match for WWE Women's Championship: Iyo Sky (c) vs. Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair

Outside of not including Bianca Belair, this is just the same group that has been feuding for a while. Iyo keeps her title unless they're already done with the experiment and want to go straight to breaking her up with Bayley. And if that's the case, Flair wins the belt. But I'll go with Sky retaining by pinning Asuka.

PREDICTION: Iyo Sky wins.

Tag Team Match: John Cena and LA Knight vs. Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa

Welcome to In Your House: Fastlane! These are the types of matches that used to happen back in the day. It's not an important match in the sense that nothing is on the line and it's mostly there just because John Cena's available, LA Knight is over with the crowd and The Bloodline remains WWE's crutch. I don't have high hopes that it'll be amazing, but what matters to 90% of the viewing audience is that they just saw these guys do their entrances, and whatever happens after. Now that is interesting, as I would think AJ Styles needs to get into the mix somewhere. This all started with him and not LA Knight. It'd be strange to just push The O.C. to the side. How's this going to play into Crown Jewel? Hm..

PREDICTION: John Cena and LA Knight win.

LWO vs. Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits

The three people competing in this match for LWO haven't been confirmed. I'd assume it will be Santos Escobar, Cruz Del Toro and Joaquin Wilde as it would be strange to have just one of Wilde/Del Toro and Rey Mysterio in there, right?

In any fashion, Latino World Order is losing. Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits are the fresh team.

PREDICTION: Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits win.

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The Judgment Day (Finn Balor and Damian Priest) (c) vs. Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso

Well, at least it isn't another six-man tag, I guess. I'm sure there will be plenty people thinking Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso are going to win those tag titles and that will propel the next part of The Bloodline's story forward. I'm not one of them. I'm assuming they'll put up a good fight and something will happen where there will be interference, likely by JD McDonagh, Dominik Mysterio, Rhea Ripley and/or Drew McIntyre pulling the trigger on his heel turn, and The Judgment Day will retain.

PREDICTION: The Judgment Day retains.
