Unlike WWE Raw, Smackdown Live has started the storylines for Fastlane right after Elimination Chamber. We have already received two title matches for the pay-per-view event. It is likely that at least one more will find its way into the match card on tonight’s episode. WWE declared the headliner of the show in the form of a contract signing for the WWE Championship between the two opponents.
WWE.com also confirmed two big matches where the new NXT imports will continue showcasing their skills. Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa will continue teaming up with each other. Aleister Black will form a new team with the Ricochet that could steal the show on Smackdown. Also, the women’s title match might get official for Fastlane. This episode of Smackdown Live is coming live from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
An official contract signing for the WWE Championship will take place on Smackdown. The champion Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston will put their signatures to make the Fastlane match official,
“Kingston has pinned Bryan on the last two editions of SmackDown LIVE, while, in turn, Bryan pinned Kingston inside the Elimination Chamber to retain his eco-friendly WWE Championship. The Dreadlocked Dynamo’s momentum has been surging for the past several weeks and it is clear that Bryan is aware of it. What will happen when the two sign on the dotted line this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE?”
An official contract signing never goes down well between two superstars, as per the history of WWE. The same is likely to happen when Bryan and Kofi share the stage at the same time. Kofi is focused than ever to win the WWE Championship at the upcoming event. Bryan is in a bitter mood after suffering two back to back losses against him. He should involve Rowan to hurt Kofi badly so that the Dreadlocked Dynamo’s momentums get stopped prior to March 10th.
Two huge tag team matches will take place on Smackdown as confirmations received by WWE.com. Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa will continue to prove their dominance on the main roster after getting back together. Last week, they have defeated The Bar in their first Smackdown Live contest. This week, Sheamus and Cesaro will try their best to stop the momentums possessed by the two NXT superstars.
The other two NXT names that will team up are Aleister Black and Ricochet. It might be a new team on the main roster. But they have competed in a recent tag team match on a recently held NXT event names Halftime Heat. However, their opponent on the blue brand is far bigger and better than NXT. Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura will go toe-to-toe against them providing the biggest resistance possible. So this time around, a win will not be easy to pick up.
Last week, Mandy Rose interrupted a returning Asuka and challenged her in a match. To the shock of the WWE Universe, The Golden Goddess picked up a huge win against the Empress of Tomorrow. With Fastlane coming up, this was just a set up for another title match on the PPV match card. It is likely that McMahons will confirm Asuka vs. Mandy Rose for the Smackdown women’s championship at Fastlane.
