Despite a lot of turmoil during the build up, WWE has reportedly finalized their plans for next Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view, and the word is that whatever they have planned will result in a big match at the Fastlane pay-per-view in February.
F4WOnline.com is reporting that because of the unique stipulation in this year’s 30-man over-the-top Royal Rumble match, which calls for the winner to immediately become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, there won’t be the usual WrestleMania main event on the line. As a result, the WWE Fastlane pay-per-view main event will likely determine who gets to challenge for the title at WrestleMania 32.
As noted, WWE is focused on positioning Fastlane as a must-see event on their annual pay-per-view calendar. With WWE using a rare Brock Lesnar pay-per-view booking for Fastlane, combined with the possibility of the WrestleMania 32 main event spot being on the line, it appears that the transition from B-level show to A-level show is beginning this year.
WWE Fastlane is scheduled to take place at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on Sunday, February 21st.
