The WWE have been promoting their Fastlane PPV as the show before the big show Which is Wrestlemania 33. The Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber was great so I understand that Fastlane had some tough acts to follow. I looked at Fastlane as an over-hyped episode of Raw. I am over Goldberg defeating opponents so quickly. 22 Seconds? Really?
I thought the matches they added to the show really slowed downed the pace of the show. We could have seen those matches on Raw the next day instead of watering down the PPV. I think the best wrestling match was Neville vs Jack Gallagher. I gained some respect for the cruiserweight division after watching this match. Those Headbutts from Jack Gallagher were vicious. I might even tune into 205 Live a little more often.
If Fastlane was just a taste of what will happen at Wrestlemania 33, I may be reluctant to tune in next month. I think the WWE has work to do as far as building up the “The Greatest Spectacle in Sports Entertainment”.
What do you think?
