Asuka vs. Charlotte is a match that fans have never seen and pits the two most dominant women in the business right now against one another. In the midst of a great beatdown following an incredible match, WWE Creative Humor was one of many to joke about the silliness of the similar booking with Randy Orton and Bobby Roode already having this situation play out after their match: Orton Completes the Set by Winning His First United States Championship The Viper has now officially held every major men's championship in WWE with his latest victory, taking the WWE United States Championship from Roode. That made it a surprise when Nakamura's battle with Rusev was such a great opener, the best one-on-one pay-per-view match from the Japanese Superstar since debuting on the main roster. While the night was never going to be an overwhelming attraction, the work of the talent involved made this a surprisingly strong event.

With WrestleMania 34 looming, the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, hosted the last stop for SmackDown Live, WWE Fastlane 2018. Every Superstar on the roster was vying for a spot at The Show of Shows, and a win, especially in championship matches, promised a huge opportunity.

Most came in expecting this show to go one way. AJ Styles was up against everyone SmackDown could throw at him from John Cena to Kevin Owens, but few thought he could lose. The same could be said for Charlotte Flair in her match against Ruby Riott.

Luckily, there was excitement for the quality of matches and for potential clarity in SmackDown’s direction by the time the night ended. This was exactly what we got. The matches over-delivered, and The Road to WrestleMania grew far clearer with just weeks remaining.

Styles Dashes Cena’s Final(?) WrestleMania Plan

Six men were battling for the WWE Championship at Fastlane, but two were at the epicenter. Styles came in as champion with everyone hopeful he would emerge with the win, while Cena was ready to do anything to take the title so that his spot at The Showcase of the Immortals was guaranteed.

The Phenomenal One put on a show once again with an incredible match where he was the focus, and his victory helped solidify just how much he deserves this ‘Mania spotlight. As one fan put it, Styles may just be the best in the world right now:

AJ Styles is one of the best ever to lace up a pair of wrestling boots. It’s truly a gift to see him perform in WWE. What a talent. #WWEFastlane

He is set to face Shinsuke Nakamura, a dream match that seemed impossible in WWE only a few years back. With consistent fan excitement for this inevitable show-stealer, it was easy to find responses hyping the bout:

On the other side, the story with Cena continues to grow as The Champ once again failed to capture gold. The camera caught a perfect shot of the emotions Cena was feeling as he pushed away the camera operator who tried to get a close up:

What is left for the leader of the Cenation? The obvious answer is one Cena had dismissed a few weeks prior with many still expecting it’s inevitable. If WWE could book Cena vs. The Undertaker, why wouldn’t it? One fan, the famous Brock Lesnar Guy, made a pretty clear point:

Others had more creative solutions. In fact, independent wrestler Chuck Taylor even offered to work with Cena, giving him a nice spot at the WrestleCon show if he’s truly growing desperate:

Whatever happens next, these are the best outcomes for everyone involved. The match everyone wants to see is set, while anything Cena does next should be electric television.

Asuka Declares Her Intentions by Challenging Charlotte Flair

For over a month, WWE made clear that Asuka was not certain of her opponent for WrestleMania after winning the first-ever women’s Royal Rumble. It looks like the reason for that was The Empress waiting to see if Charlotte would still be champion.

Now the match is set, and how could anyone not be excited? Asuka vs. Charlotte is a match that fans have never…
