AJ Styles keeps dream match intact at WWE Fastlane

Look, WWE has been telling us stories subliminally for years.

Dolph Ziggler came back, wanting to main event WrestleMania and it was decided that he and Baron Corbin would have a match to decide who would be added to Fastlane's title match. I can imagine this match being in the running to steal the show, as Rusev should inspire Nakamura to pull out a solid one. However, Rusev wanted revenge and with room on the Fastlane card, they fight tonight.

The show opened with a gruelling match between Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura. Consider it one of the most hyped-up matches in WWE history, and there's already one Hall of Famer who thinks it could be the best match in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Usos (C) vs. Jinder Mahal did not run in until after the match was over. McMahon overrules Bryan's decisions, so Orton challenges the former NXT Champ.

Randy Orton defeats Bobby Roode: Both men went for back and forth action in the start.

The United States and SmackDown Tag Team Championship pictures aren't as clear. Tye hits Rawley with a one-kneed codebreaker variant.

Oh, Carmella and Natalya won. The crowd weren't into this at all, and it basically just existed to remind us that Carmella is still holding the briefcase. The countdown ended the match and Styles emerged with his Championship belt. Can a rivalry like this one set a new standard in this company? However, the match is interrupted by "The Bludgeon Brothers (Eric Rowan and Luke Harper)' and it results in a 'No Contest".

What's next: Charlotte vs. Asuka.

Ruby Riott and her Riott Squad have been able to hold their own as an invading force on SmackDown and it's time for the next step. A win for Riott here would be the first meaningful thing the trio does since they debuted. This has at times been extremely grating because the first half of his career consisted at times of Super Cena using sheer brute strength to overcome his opponents and very predictable matches. Flair then locks in the Figure Eight Leg Lock, scoring the win and retaining the title.

The night's co-main event featured Charlotte Flair's defense of her Smackdown women's championship against Ruby Riott.

AJ Styles retained his WWE championship against John Cena, Dolph Ziggler, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin and Kevin Owens in a six-pack challenge. Owens tried to superkick Sami, but he moves out of his way and eventually, Owens kicked Shane McMahon. He's going to have to go through Styles, Ziggler, Owens, Zayn, and Corbin in a (assumedly No DQ) Six-Pack Challenge. Shane O'Mac does the same to Zayn a few minutes later, costing them both wins.
