WWE Fastlane 2017 Match Card, Prediction Fights
While SmackDown LIVE prepares for their Elimination Chamber PPV on Sunday, the focus of this week’s Monday Night Raw will be Goldberg’s response to Brock Lesnar and an update on the condition of Seth Rollins and his knee injury. While it’s possible that Rollins will have to miss his second consecutive WrestleMania thanks to the sneak attack from Samoa Joe that resulted in a legitimate injury.
The rest of the Monday Night Raw roster will be making a stop at WWE Fastlane 2017 before ending up in Orlando for WrestleMania 33. Many members of the WWE Universe suspect that Goldberg will show up on WWE Raw tonight not only to accept Lesnar’s WrestleMania challenge, but also to issue a challenge of his own to WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens for WWE Fastlane in March.
In the opening segment of this week’s Monday Night Raw, General Manager Mick Foley gave a half-hearted introduction for the newest Raw roster member, Samoa Joe. After cutting an in-ring promo and signing his contract in front of Foley and Commissioner Stephanie McMahon, they were interrupted by Roman Reigns. Moments later, Foley booked Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Raw main event.
Returning to his pre-Sami Zayn feud gimmick, Braun Strowman wrestled in a Handicap Match that he easily won before getting on the mic and complaining about his competition. As noted above, Foley found Strowman backstage and told him that he would be facing Roman Reigns at WWE Fastlane 2017.
