WWE Fastlane Kickoff Show Stream (Watch Inside), Time to Make a Switch?

WWE Fastlane Kickoff Show Stream (Watch Inside), Time to Make a Switch?

Below is the kickoff show stream for WWE Fastlane.

Time to Make a Switch?

The brand split is nothing new in WWE but it certainly changes the whole look of the

company. Suddenly match-ups between certain wrestlers can't happen because they are on

different brands. With talk of a new draft after WrestleMania, just what changes need to be

made to freshen up the product?

Styles to Raw

AJ Styles has been a revelation since joining WWE last year. Fans around the world who

didn't mind watching “indie wrestling” were well versed in his outstanding talent. Finally,

after Styles had great success in Japan, Vince McMahon stood up and took notice and finally

signed him. A World title reign and victories over John Cena gave Styles a brilliant first year

but he seems to be slipping down the ladder on SmackDown now, losing his title to John

Cena recently.

The same could be said for WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens who could perhaps

head to SmackDown. He's currently 9/2 to still hold that title after WrestleMania - several

online bookmakers will have odds and you’ll see in this bet365 review that even an online

casino can offer a sportsbook with regular and in-play betting to have a punt as you’re

watching the action unfold.

Owens to SmackDown and Styles to Raw looks the right move to make. There are dream

feuds waiting for Styles with Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, perhaps

even Kurt Angle, Brock Lesnar or Goldberg. Meanwhile, Owens can get back into title

contention on a Tuesday night, though hopefully not against John Cena.

Zayn to Smackdown

We may all still have fond memories of Sami Zayn in his days as El Generico, but he’s been

a big hit since joining WWE. He fits in well with the typical WWE underdog role and that’s

been put to good use in his feuds with Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe. Zayn is much better

than that though and a move to SmackDown could see him challenging for the IC title. Put

him in feuds where he can come out on top for a change and watch him sparkle. 

Let’s See Becky on a Monday

Female wrestlers are producing some great matches in WWE and even headlining PPVs,

something I thought would never happen. For once at WrestleMania, fans won't be using the

arrival of the likes of Charlotte, Bayley, Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss as a chance to pop to

the toilet or make some more sandwiches.

There needs to be some changes to freshen up the division and that might even happen at

WrestleMania. Ronda Rousey is no stranger to the biggest show of the year and as her UFC

career crumbles, she's only 6/4 to make an appearance this year and could join full-time

sometime in the future. If you’re planning to take a punt you should check out this Betway

review as the online bookmaker both has a regular site and a mobile app so that you can place

a bet on the go.

Becky Lynch could definitely benefit by a return to Raw once her feuds with Alexa Bliss and

Mickie James come to an end. Perhaps even consider a heel turn, which is something that's

she would relish and breathe new life into this talented performer. 

A New Day for The New Day

How WWE keep squeezing laughs out of the New Day is beyond me. It gets more juvenile

every week and they have been totally eased out of the tag team title picture. Hours of seeing

them host WrestleMania isn’t going to be the greatest of joys to behold. Switch them to

Tuesday nights for some new opponents to take the rise out of. Then, just get ready for the

inevitable split and launch Big E. as a singles star and promote No Way Jose from NXT as

his replacement.

The months after any WrestleMania are vital for WWE. New feuds to begin in the lead up to

SummerSlam and the brand extension can be used to achieve that. It’s a gamble and there are

others such as Paige, Rusev, The Miz and Big Show who could prosper from new

surroundings. WWE have had success with the brand extension and live TV on a Tuesday has

done well, some big decisions have to be made this summer and they have to be the right
