That was seemingly confirmed by Asuka herself after the show, when she admitted she had picked Flair as her opponent for Mania. This is Orton's first reign as US Champion.
Orton took the long route to nab this shiny accolade as he's been a WWE Superstar for almost twenty years-compared to Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns who became Grand Slammers in 2017. The only match that could count for something it the main event six-pack challenge. Cena and Styles then started hammering each other before the 16-time champion was surrounded by the other competitors in the ring. With "Fastlane 2018" out of the way, there's nothing left for WWE to cover but the biggest show of the year with "Wrestlemania XXXIV". It should be Rusev getting an honest to goodness push as a babyface, and not be the victim of WWE going "welp, he's a foreign guy but the crowd loves him..."
Who will win and get one step closer to WrestleMania 34? Rusev - specifically Rusev Day - is incredibly over, in one of those weird, WWE-fans-will-cheer-for-anything gimmicks. Bobby Roode is wasted in his current role on SmackDown and Randy is doing a "the USA title is the only belt I've never won" storyline, which means, ugh, we're dragging this thing out to WrestleMania, where those sorts of storylines are more appropriate aren't we?
Everyone from Rey Mysterio to Daniel Bryan, Elias to Braun Strowman should be up for speculation, which makes it fun.
Leicester put four past West Brom at The Hawthorns
West Brom stayed rooted to the bottom, eight points from safety , while Leicester are eighth on 40 points. The game against Alan Pardew's side was his 12th Premier League contest of the season as a substitute.
Not knowing what's to come is always more intriguing than having guarantees, so Cena's struggle to achieve his goal is a better storyline to track than just waiting several weeks for an inevitable encounter.
What may be more interesting, however, is what happened behind the scenes earlier this year, as Ziggler reportedly extended his contract with the WWE, making him one of the highest paid Superstars in the company with his new deal.
By taking the pin, no general manager would look at him and say he deserves a shot over the other people involved.
Oh, Carmella and Natalya won.
Trump backs off call for raising minimum age to buy assault weapons
Shah said the proposals will be legislative and administrative and also will include recommendations for states. The National Rifle Association (NRA) last week sued to block a new Florida law , signed by Gov.
Owens hit Ziggler with a Pop-up Powerbomb and The Underdog from the Underground took out KO with a Helluva Kick but both pin attempts were broken by McMahon. Spoiler alert: AJ Styles is going to win. It would showcase he's vulnerable and may not succeed in his quest.
Even if Orton drops this title on the very next episode of SmackDown, he still made history at Fastlane, which is a massive accomplishment. The audience could sympathize with his struggle and want to see him turn things around.
Be it Ric Flair who did the hours to Shawn Michaels then Michaels did it to The Undertaker and now Cena seems to be doing just that.
#1 Virginia Ready to Face #12 North Carolina in ACC Championship Game

WWE Fastlane was, ironically, a speed bump on the road to WrestleMania 34.
