The arena hosting WWE Fastlane 2018 may have unintentionally leaked the main event for the show along with most of the card.
Typically fans in the WWE Universe learn about matches for an upcoming pay-per-view by watching the action unfold on episodes of Raw or SmackDown Live. The SmackDown Live exclusive event WWE Fastlane should have been no different.
But, thanks to the official website of the Nationwide Arena, where the Fastlane event is being held, the full-card (or at least near to full card) of the event has already been revealed.
The show isn’t scheduled to take place until March 11, 2018, but thanks to the website, the WWE Universe now knows that AJ Styles will defend the WWE Championship in a five-way match against Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn. Fans will also get to see Dolph Ziggler, Charlotte, Bobby Roode, Jinder Mahal, The New Day, The Usos, and Baron Corbin all in action.
Big Main Event For #WWEFastlane Revealed

One thing to keep in mind is that the card is subject to change. It wasn’t long ago the WWE was heavily promoting a Jinder Mahal vs Brock Lesnar match for Survivor Series only to switch things at the last moment and give Styles the WWE Heavyweight Championship. Styles then went on to face Lesnar after the WWE, broadcast companies and likely the arena promoted the match as the “Modern Day Maharaja” versus “The Beast Incarnate.”
WWE Fastlane will be the final WWE pay-per-view before WrestleMania 34 so expect the card, whatever it is, to be top-notch and full of storylines that lead to big feuds coming to a close at the Show of Shows.
We may also see new faces on the blue brand as the Royal Rumble is right around the corner and that typically means new stars debuting and working themselves into WrestleMania weekend.
One thing is for certain, the fact that Styles will still be the WWE Champion come to Fastlane means a marquee matchup for the very talented in-ring performer and that’s great news for wrestling fans who wanted to see Styles get a big-name opponent. Hopefully, he doesn’t lose the title in a five-way match that is typically not friendly to the current champion.
