As we approach the next stop on the fast lane (see what I did there, haha) to Wrestlemania 32 in Dallas, we head into Cleveland for WWE Fastlane 2016, which airs tonight at 8pm EST, live on the WWE Network.
Last year’s event was highlighted by a #1 Contender’s matchup between Roman Reigns and the now-retired Daniel Bryan, and this year, we’re in for a different twist of the same Pepsi, with Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar and Dean Ambrose vying for that #1 spot, for the opportunity to face WWE World Heavyweight Champion, COO, and all around “good-guy,” Triple H at the 32nd Showcase of the Immortals, but before that, here’s the updated card for the show:

With the sheer amount of stories mired around these matches at WWE Fastlane, there’s lots of ways that these tales can be spun, but to heck with all of that mythic shit. Let’s talk some pro wrestling.
