My thoughts on WWE FastLane

Last night's show was the set-up for Wrestlemania Next month. Feuds were solidified, matches confirmed, and the table set for the biggest show of the year. In some ways, WWE succeeded; in others they disappointed.

Ziggler, Ryback, and Rowan vs. Rollins, Kane, and Big Show
The big news was Randy Orton running in to make the save during the post-match heel mayhem. Ziggler & co. really deserve better than to be the setup men for the Orton-Rollins feud, as promising as that may be. Ziggler again looked strong in defeat, but those defeats have been coming way to often for such a talented—and over—performer. Rowan is just floundering. He has a new, personalized outfit. Sort of. It's a black jumpsuit with a logo. I can't imagine WWE merchandising will be selling jumpsuits, but you can only sell so many sheep masks, so the Rowan shirts are necessary. Rybacks latest singlet looked awful, like an airbrush experiment gone wrong. The match itself was OK, although the end was predictable. Still, seeing all those RKOs at the end was fun.

Paige vs. Nikki Bella
Why do they even bother?

Usos vs. Cesaro & Kidd
It was about time for the flying Samoans to drop the straps, and it's a pleasant change to see Cesaro and Kidd wearing championship belts. The problem with this match is a by-product of the "Reality Era." Nattie is a face, but she's coming out with the heel team because she's married to Tyson Kidd. Naomi is (sort of) a heel, but she's coming out with the face team because she's married to an Uso. My suspension of disbelieve turns into a headache trying to figure this one out.

Cena vs. Rusev
Now this was an entertaining match, dusty finish and all. I knew that Mr. Never-Give-Up was not going to tap out to the Camel Clutch Accolade. Being the first guy to resist the submission hold and stand up was a great move, and the distraction by Lana was well used by Rusev. The thing is, I've seen Cena take nut-shots in house shows more than once. I'm starting to wonder if he likes them. Cheap stunts aside, the monster kick to the head insured that he wasn't going to tap out in the Accolade even though he lost by submission. The finish ensures that this feud will continue to WrestleMania.

Ambrose vs. Bad News Barrett
Only the Lunatic Fringe could get himself disqualified and still leave the ring with the belt. BNB's cowardly heel tactics might serve to set up a steel cage or lumberjack match for WrestleMania.

Daniel Bryan needs a role and a rival for WrestleMania. The rumored match with Ziggler would be excellent if WWE can set up a face vs. face feud. With RKO back on the scene, it may be time for Bryan or Ziggler to have a heel turn. The only question mark is Seamus. Does he return a hero or join with the Authority? I think we'll be finding out tonight RAW.
