With tonight being the Fast Lane PPV on the WWE Network, which matches are you most looking forward to, and are you going to watch the show?

Personally, I can't wait to see how badly Roman Reigns does in his match with Daniel Bryan. I know for a certain Bryan can carry anyone to a fantastic encounter but I watch for little things beyond the moves. That's what I'm looking for in this match (because I'm a jaded IWC fan) is to see how NOT ready Roman Reigns is.

I also hope Rusev goes over clean on John Cena.

And Sting / HHH segment should be good.

I'm actually more excited on this show for Ambrose/BNB for the IC Championship. Sting/HHH will be good as well, but I actually think the IC Championship match should be the main event of the evening. Nothing else really grabs my fancy on this show at all.

Am I the only one who sees a pattern developing with John Cena, younger talent like Bray Wyatt and Rusev, and the first half of the year?

It was kind of like this last year with Cena/Wyatt, what with the younger talent calling out John about being the slightly-too-old face of the company, then the two have a match that's destined for a WrestleMania rematch, and after three months, Cena's largely unaffected while the younger talent gets buried.

I'd book John Cena to win the US Title tonight, but Rusev wins it back at WrestleMania and defends at Extreme Rules in a Tables Match (since that's John Cena's weakness, meaning the Dudleys have a chance against him) meaning Rusev wins the program, and Cena becomes the gatekeeper for the rest of the young talent looking to make an impact.

But what do the fans know according to Vince McMahon?

I'd like to know why Cena is being booked as "the old man". He's 37. The ironic part is WWE has old men on the roster, so this makes even less sense.

And Jorden, Reigns didn't do all that bad. Bryan, of course, pulled a good match out of him but Reigns wasn't his normal "I'm clearly thinking about where I should be for the next spot" self. Is that all Bryan? It might be That's definitely a possibility and Bryan might have just played up Reigns' strengths better than anyone he's been in the ring with yet. I guess Wrestlemania will tell us for sure.

I'm actually with you on both things Dan. The idea that Cena is an "old man" because he's been wrestling now for 10 years makes absolute zero sense. I'd almost think it better if they did what Megastory4 said, and just called him the "gate keeper" or something. He's clearly not old. 10 years in the business isn't that long either.

As far as Roman, yeah he did have a really good match. Time will tell if it was him or Bryan because you're right, he was in the right spot for his stuff. His selling looked really believable. His offense was good. He did some of the "little things," that guys don't notice. Such as, selling his OWN offense, like it hurts him just to do it. Overall, fantastic match and more than I'd expected.

I don't think Reigns vs. Lesnar will be nearly as good as what Bryan vs. Lesnar could have been, but we'll see soon enough I guess.

Last night was an interesting one to say the least. I kinda liked how they did with the IC title being stolen by Ambrose. It makes sense from a character level to me. Like if someone were to screw me out of a title, I would take that belt with me and when the champion wants to get it back, he'd have to come get it. Automatic title match. I didn't feel cheated over the outcome. It means Ambrose gets a real match at Mania to win the title. I like that.

I thought Bray's segment was awesome. I see him being the next big thing to watch out for in single championship matches. What better way than have him face off the Undertaker to launch off of. Sting facing Triple H will be good I would like to think. Not in their prime, but the pairing is good. If it were Sting/Taker I would question, not as fan but just looking at it being messy action like on the level of Brock/Goldberg stuff. Bray works. Undertaker can be a general, Bray follows, either way win or loss a new star is born out of that match.

The Cena/Rosev match was alright. I thought it was used to humanize Cena now that WWE has Roman to hype over. Nothing really special. I didn't like the way they called him old. He's not. I agree with you guys. What was really a good match was Roman verses Bryan. Those two worked well enough together, I thought. Sure it would have been nice if Bryan won but I'm willing to give Roman Reins a chance to prove others wrong. All he needs is work on his trouble areas between now and Mania and I think he could live up to what WWE is making out to be. A main eventer who can sell tickets.

If they have Heyman turn on Lesnar. That would be very helpful for Roman in a few of those areas. We almost saw a nasty side of his character when he pinned Bryan and started beating the shit out of him. That made me really want to see a heel turn at Wrestlemania, make those same fans hate your character. Embrace that hatred.

I think the sentiment is that he's had ten years on top. Nobody in recent memory has had ten years on top but Flair and Hogan, and Hogan's came in two separated runs. Not Rock, not Austin, not even Triple H. I think Cena needs to be in this role for a while, maybe let him get some new guys over and then have him do another run with a title or something, but for everything I hold holy, please keep him out of the Main Event for at least the next year.

I'm interested in the Golddust VS Stardust feud. This is one I hope is done right, as rumor is Golddust is retiring soon. Cody Rhodes needs to be brought back, as Stardust has no future in a World Title scene - even though that may be a stretch for him currently. Golddust has always been the middle-card, drawing big matches like the Roddy Piper Wrestle Mania match, or his feud with Jeff Jarrett back in the day. He has a distinctive persona in the ring that is unmatched by any talent. Stardust was the imitation of that persona from a family member. Now it's time for Dustin Rhodes to break the Golddust character to make Cody Rhodes understand he can't continue to be lost in this mindset of Stardust.

I enjoyed the Usos losing the tag titles, that was a good step to build them up for a win at Wrestle Mania, to honor the Samoans being inducted at the Hall of Fame (my prediction). I think Cesaro and Kidd have a great chemistry but the tag team division needs some more teams. The Ascension kinda fell on it's face with the disrespectful comments and the fans reactions to it. While they are heel in form, they were very hot in NXT - and now the WWE Universe is hating them because of the dialogue that someone is writing for them.

Ambrose and Bad News Barrett have the potential to steal the show at Wrestle Mania. I hardly feel Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will do that, nor Sting VS Triple H.

Bray Wyatt and Taker has been a well built machine for this years big daddy show, so I expect some craziness to unfold in that match. However, if Taker loses, will it really matter now? Was this the reason he lost to Lesnar last year, so his loss at Wrestle Mania this year could put over the newer guys he wants to build? And if he wins, that's two years that Bray Wyatt has lost at Wrestle Mania. The push he gets seems to fall flat here, unless the story becomes more captivating than the win/loss at the show.

My biggest issue with the WWE atm is the miss use of the "Divas" Lest push those talented and get rid of the Eye Candy. I want to see womens wrestling like it was with Lita, Victoria etc the talents there!
