NO way man! I want to see a headlining wrestlemania match play out the way they do in NXT just once, where the crowd is battling with chants of "AJ Styles!" & "Nakamura!" and neither side willing to back down and trying all the more to drown out the other. The best way to see that happen is if they're both ridiculously over babyfaces. Nakamura needs a bit more building on his way to wrestlemania to see that happen though.

That said, I seriously doubt that'll happen and I'm sure Nakamura will turn heel and everything will go to shit.

Having a fatal 5 way is interesting however I think it should've been just a four way Corbin has no business being in this match even if he is the guy to take the fall. 

Ziggler being in the match is fine he'll make everyone in that ring look even better then what they are already are which is good for all parties involved. 

I expect to see some kind of interference from Shane and Daniel in this match to ensure that Owens and Zayn don't get the win even something as simple as just pulling the referee out of the ring just as they are about to count the three. 

I feel like the match itself is going to end up being a clusterfuck with a lot of interference and lots of other stuff happening but ultimately AJ Styles getting the win.

i would also love that to happen, however mainstream WWE crowds are not the same as NXT crowds and always seem too quiet when its face v face because of not knowing who to cheer for

But WrestleMania crowds ARE that smarky, in fact it's completely dominated by the same people that go to NXT Takeover the night before. There's no reason whatsoever that it couldn't happen there, too. Any other PPV, I'd agree with you, but WrestleMania crowds are notorious for having people travel all over the world to attend, and it's only the smarks that do that.

Fans cheer for who they want to cheer for. Being face/heel is barely a factor any more, particular at big events as has been mentioned before.

Quote WWE's next PPV, Fastlane, takes place this Sunday live from Columbus, OH. Here is the current lineup for the show:

WWE Title Six Pack Challenge Match
AJ Styles vs. Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. John Cena vs. Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn

WWE United States Title Match
Bobby Roode vs. Randy Orton

WWE Smackdown Tag Team Title Match
The Usos vs. The New Day

WWE Smackdown Women's Title Match
Charlotte Flair vs. Ruby Riott

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev

Carmella & Natalya vs. Becky Lynch & Naomi


 
Good card. Fairplay to the women for being given a third of the card.
 
Rusev and Nakamura will put on a decent contest, which the fans will be fully into.
 
All three male title matches will be exciting contests. Looking forward to the show.

You know,for the stick Smackdown has been getting recently, that's a decent card.

From a pure wrestling POV, the tag match will be sensational and the women's title match should be a good contest.

The 6 pack - WWE do good multi-man matches and a high number of them in this one have exciting offense, so that should be good.

Naka vs Rusev will be a crowd pleaser.

Women's tag match isn't the most anticipated, but it's something.

Smackdown's biggest problem has been booking. As long as they don't do some stupid booking on Sunday, it could be decent.

Really dont know why they made the main event a 6 pack challenge like but other than that this should be a fairly decent card

Nakamura will get his pre mania win to get him some momentum as hes been missing for weeks

Was a solid card which tied up some Wrestlemania loose ends.

Nakamura vs Rusev was one of the best main roster Nakamura matches I've watched to date, very entertaining match where Rusev looked pretty strong in defeat, of course SN picked up the win as this was very much a Mania tune up match for him.

Bobby Roode vs Orton was also a very solid effort which sets the triple threat match for WM with the appearance of Jinder at the end, wonder if this is the beginning of a Roode heel turn? I hope so.

The ladies tag was ok, didn't really watch it as it was total filler.

Tag title match was decent but short lived due to the ending. The beatdown inflicted by the Bludgeon Brothers looked really brutal and I'm guessing this will set a three team match for Wrestlemania, maybe a gimmick match of some sort?

The Womens title match again didn't really care for it as it was stop gap match for Charlotte that she was obviously winning. Seemed reasonable enough. Asuka appearing at the end to set the Mania match, I wonder if this now means Asuka is on Smackdown?

The six pack was too much of a clusterfuck for me, matches like this are fine in the mid-card but not so much to headline a PPV. Anything more than three to four guys involved and it gets all too chaotic and talent have to oversell and it just becomes a collection of big spots. The interaction between Zayn, Owens and Shane was interesting and I wonder where this will lead? AJ as expected gets the win to head into WM as champion.

Nakamura/Rusev: Solid opener, with the heel having his lackey there to get involved when the match doesn't involve him. Decent enough match.
 
Roode/Orton: Decent enough match, with a title change I don't agree with. Jinder comes out to make it two matches in a row with an heel involved in something they weren't scheduled to be.
 
Naomi/Becky/Natayla/Carmella: Filler match, nothing to see here. Carmella gets the win so creative can remind us about the briefcase.
 
Usos/New Day: Ruined by match 3 out of 4 with heels getting involved in something they aren't scheduled for.
 
Charlotte/Ruby: Match 4 out of 5, this time with the challenger having her heel lackeys shifted. So so match, nothing special but not a pointless watch.
 
Six Man Main Event: Really enjoyable main event. Bits of stupidity in it, but that's what happens in these kind of matches.
 
Overall I would give the card a six out of ten. Too many matches with outside interference.
