WrestleMania 33 is less than a month away, but there is still one more pay-per-view before WWE’s biggest event of 2017. WWE Fastlane will feature the top wrestlers from “Monday Night Raw” at Milwaukee’s Bradley Center Sunday night.
The final PPV before WrestleMania is often uneventful, but that likely won’t be the case this year. Not only are a few titles expected to change hands, but a couple of WWE superstars could make surprise returns.
Goldberg will challenge Kevin Owens for the WWE Universal Championship, which Owens has held for more than six months. Owens has successfully defended his title against the likes of Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, but his championship run could come to an end against Goldberg.
The former WCW star is expected to win his first WWE title in more than 13 years and defend the belt against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33. Goldberg probably won’t need any help in defeating Owens, but it’s possible that Chris Jericho could interfere in the match. Jericho hasn’t appeared on WWE TV since he was attacked by Owens on the Feb. 13 edition of “Monday Night Raw.”
The Raw Women’s Champion is also expected to lose her belt. Bayley is a heavy underdog in her title match against Charlotte Flair, who is undefeated on PPV. Flair has started her WWE career with 16 straight victories on PPV, and she is trying to win the championship for the fifth time.
The match between Reigns and Braun Strowman won’t involve a championship, but it might include the biggest moment of the night. With Reigns likely to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33, the Deadman is expected to appear during the match. The Undertaker hasn’t been seen since he was eliminated by Reigns at the Royal Rumble on Jan. 29.
Fastlane also includes matches for the Raw Tag Team Championships and the Cruiserweight Championship. The event can be purchased for $54.99 on PPV.
WWE Network will broadcast a live stream of Fastlane. A subscription to the network costs $9.99 per month, but new subscribers get the first month for free. The kickoff show begins at 7 p.m. EST, and the actual PPV begins at 8 p.m. EST.
