8 Last-Minute WWE Fastlane 2018 Rumours You Need To Know

Last chance for The Deadman?


As of today, we're officially just four weeks away from WrestleMania 34. If you've got a special wrestling-themed advent calendar, then it's time to get out (and perhaps also find a new hobby).

But, before we head off to New Orleans for the Showcase of the Immortals, we've got to sit through Fastlane, a show WWE decided to add to its pay-per-view schedule a couple of years ago for reasons that we are still no closer to knowing.

The main problem with Fastlane - both this year and for the previous three - is that it tends to feel less like an event in its own right than it does a prelude to 'Mania. Any big matches the company has planned are naturally going to be saved for the biggest show of the year, meaning this one is filled mostly with throwaway encounters.

But that doesn't mean the rumour-mill stops turning. In fact, with so much mystery still surrounding, for example, the fates of John Cena and Asuka going into the Grandest Stage of Them All, there's plenty for us to foolishly get our hopes about for tonight.
