Tonight, WWE Raw presents Fastlane 2017, the final Pay-Per-View event before WrestleMania 33. The show is appropriately named, as it reflects the winding but always frenetic "Road to WrestleMania" that has enveloped both brands of the company.

Fastlane is more than just another stop on the road, though - it's also the company's last major chance to set up or topple over the card castle that represents the state of affairs leading into the show of shows (apologies for the mixed metaphors). And while the card, short of a few matches, may not be the most newsworthy one WWE's put on in recent memory, there's certainly plenty of room to upset the apple cart (wow, another) before April 2.

In the main event, Universal Champion Kevin Owens - who's held the title since August - will defend against the former and current most dominant man in pro wrestling, Goldberg. With Goldberg already confirmed to be taking on Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, the results of this title match will make a major difference for the show of shows. Fans will also see the undefeated Braun Strowman go toe-to-toe with Roman Reigns in a heated grudge match.

As for what viewers can expect beyond that? Here are 10 last-minute rumors you need to know for Fastlane, ranked from least probable to most likely...
