Another WWE PPV event done before WrestleMania 33. This time it was the Fastlane with Goldberg, Roman Reigns and Big Show in action. Also, Samao Joe took to the ring. The superstars put a brilliant show in the event and some of the matches were epic the fans. Goldberg was pitted against Kevin Owens for the Universal Championship, Big Show was up against Rusev and the big one was Roman Reigns against Braun Strowman.
Much of the hype was around Goldberg’s match if he can win his first title after return. He was in a title match after 14 long years. But he proved why he is legendary. Owens was not even ready to fight and before the bell rang, he refused to step into the ring. Once his good friend, Goldberg was eagerly waiting. Just then, the entry music of Chris Jericho was played and this left Owens perplexed. He even asked the referee to hold the ring but that did not happen.
Listening to Jericho music in the background, Owens stepped inside the ring but did not show interest in the fight. But Goldberg wasted no time and went on with his spear, Jackhammer and 1-2-3. End of the fight. He is now the Universal Champion and will go on to WrestleMania with that belt. Hopefully.
In the other big fight, Roman Reigns proved his worth against Braun Strowman. It was a fight that was more about Reigns proving that he belonged to this stage. Strowman gave him no opportunity to attack and made sure his defence was spot on. Reigns had no clue how to break the defence. But he managed a spear. And when Strowman realised the Reigns could actually make a comeback, went to the top and attempted a splash but missed. By the time he was on his feet, Strowman did not know what Reigns was planning. Reigns pulled off another spear and ended Strowman’s dream-run and also became the first to get a pinfall over Strowman.
