If HHH is still the champ by Wrestlemania, I think the most predictable choice for Fastlaneās main event winner is Roman Reigns. At the end of the day, anything could happen, but I see the Wyatts getting involved in the match, eliminating Lesnar (which sets up a match for them at Wrestlemania); then Reigns pins Ambrose. Iād be fine with that outcome, and Wrestlemania match to be honest. Now if we want to look at another scenario, seeing Lesnar versus Triple H does not seem viable; simply because we has seen it so many times before. There is also no real ābad bloodā between these two currently. However, if the powers that be had a change of heart, and potentially looked at Ambrose to main event with Triple H; that would make an interesting match up. However, I simply do not see that happening. Itās clear that Reigns and HHH need closure with their feud, and it seems like all the arrows point to Wrestlemania.
I kind of want “other” here, but the only way that happens is if we have someone drop out due to injury (sadly, that’s been happening a lot), but if one of the trio was to drop out due to an injury, I have a hunch WWE would make it a one on one match. We know there won’t be Money In The Bank coming into play, unless WWE brings that back to ‘Mania again-which I doubt, but anything is possible.
So, the easiest choice is Roman. He has the beef with Hunter, and The Authority. So, to me, this feels like WrestleMania 30 andĀ Daniel Bryan all over again, where WWE screwed him over constantly leading up to the big day, and finally he was able to climb the mountain and get his WrestleMania moment.
Except that the fans aren’t going as crazy for Roman as they did for Bryan. Not even close.
Brock and Hunter have a history, so setting them up for another match would be fairly easy. But I do expect Brock to wind up chasing the Wyatts.
Which leaves Ambrose. Dean would be somewhat new, and if his matches turned out like his program did with Seth in 2015, then we, as fans. would be getting a nice match to watch. But of the three, I see WWE least likely to go with Ambrose in the main event of the biggest show of the year.
The problem here-and there is absolutely a problem here-is that a great number of fans don’t want to see Roman win. Or, if they don’t mind him winning, they are also tired of the shoving of Reigns. To the point where, in a Regins-HHH match, you could arguably risk unwillingly turning Reigns heel, because he’s not who the fans want to see winning. Not saying it will go that route, but Reigns does not have the traction with the fans that Bryan did in 2014.
Since Triple H is champion, he has a longer relationship with Brock Lesnar and a more recent one with Roman Reigns. Yet, Dean Ambrose should be given the nod to win at Fastlane and secure his ticket to WrestleMania 32ās main event. For the past year, Ambrose has been in the title picture and always misses out. People donāt notice because he doesnāt complain the next night on RAW in a 20 minute opening segment.
He was unable to defeat Seth Rollins in their brutal Money in the Bank and Hell in a Cell matches. Then, when Rollins fell to injury, Reigns was made the guy while Ambrose again held the spot of number two. He didnāt win the Survivor Series tournament and after taking a beating in the Last Man Standing match, Ambrose made the final two of the Royal Rumble. He almost made Triple Hās two feet hit the ground and he nearly won the title. Ambroseās story is about coming so close every single time, only for the likes of his (ex) brothers Reigns and Rollins to get in the way. The āLunatic Fringeā winning is not farfetched.
I donāt think āotherā is an option. The WWE is lacking names that can sell the WrestleMania event.
