WWE RAW is under the reign of All-Mighty Bobby Lashley who would move toward his next opponent for Fastlane 2021 on this week’s episode. Two titles will also be defended on the same night. Riddle defends his US Title against Ali while the Hurt Business puts their tag titles on the line against New Day when tonight’s show airs from the Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay, Florida.
One week after his historic title win, Bobby Lashley put his WWE Title on the line against The Miz during the opening segment of last week’s WWE Raw. He said that he would make an example of The A-Lister and stayed true to those words by tapping him out with The Hurt Lock.
With an absolutely dominant win, it was considered to be a warning to the locker room so that nobody dares to step between him and his title as The All-Mighty Era progresses. The question remains whether he will put his title on the line at Fastlane 2021 or he will straight enter WrestleMania 37 as the reigning champion where Drew McIntyre should be his opponent.
WWE Raw Preview (15/03/21): Fastlane 2021 main event in progress
Speaking of the Scottish Warrior, he was engaged in a No Disqualification contest against Sheamus that should’ve ended the feud on WWE Raw. But the match ended in a No Contest after a vicious fight between the two participants. Now a rubber match is waiting between the two of them, perhaps at Fastlane 2021.
Reports from Wrestling Observer suggest that Drew McIntyre vs Sheamus will once again go down at the upcoming PPV with the Last Man Standing gimmick attached to it. Plus, there should be one more stipulation added to it via which the winner will go on to WrestleMania 37 by challenging Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title.
Since after winning the United States Title, Riddle is trying to prove himself to be an established mid-card champion and Ali has a problem with that. The RETRIBUTION leader was targeting the Original Bro for weeks complaining about how he should receive a title shot. Now, he officially gets that title match on WWE Raw as he faces Riddle in a one-on-one contest.
The other title match would witness WWE Raw tag team titles be on the line when The New Day – Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods challenges the Hurt Business – Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin. The Hurt Business is clad with all gold and the former champions get a huge opportunity to derail their momentums just weeks ahead of WrestleMania 37. Could this be happening? We’ll find out answers on the Fastlane go-home episode.
