Charlotte Flair, The Riott Squad and Bobby Roode In-Ring Segment:
The beautiful Dasha Fuentes was about to interview Charlotte and Ruby Riott. Ruby tells Dasha to get out of the ring. Ruby’s issues with Charlotte started on November 14, 2017 when Charlotte became the SmackDown Live Women’s Champion. All her life, Charlotte has been set up for success. Charlotte was the perfect woman. She’s tall, blonde, athletic, cunning, and the daughter of a Two tTme WWE Hall of Famer. Ruby goes over Charlotte’s accomplishments.
There was a myth that started to form. Charlotte Flair being the personification of the Women’s Revolution. That’s why two weeks after Charlotte won the title, Ruby formed The Riott Squad, with one sole purpose. To destroy the myth. Charlotte says the only myth that exists about her is that anything has been handed to her. Charlotte had to work harder because of her last name. She has an immense amount of weight and expectations on her shoulders. Charlotte has to be transcendent.
Her accomplishments transcended any myths about her. Whether Charlotte was placed there or not, she’s on a pedestal. That is all on the line on Sunday at Fastlane. When Rub takes her crown, Charlotte will no longer be the Queen. Her reality is going to crumble and Charlotte will just be another beach blonde failure with a famous last name. Charlotte was about to brawl with The Riott Squad, but her mixed match challenged partner, Bobby Roode arrives to The Resch Center.

AJ Styles & Dolph Ziggler In-Ring Segment:
It wasn’t long ago when AJ Styles only cared about himself. After winning the WWE Championship for the second time, he sees the world a little differently. It’s a grind to get here. The grind continues two years later. Styles doesn’t have to get pinned to lose this title at Fastlane. What a surprise, the odds are stacked against him. Styles won’t be complaining because life is not fair. Styles is going to fight. This is Smackdown, The House That, AJ Styles built. No matter how much we train or how hard we try, life gets the best of us. Sometimes we don’t win. Last week, John Cena pinned him clean in the middle of the ring.
Styles didn’t need more motivation. We see a clip of John Cena’s promo from last nights RAW. Styles understands where Cena is coming from. However, Styles wants his WrestleMania moment. Taking the most prestigious title in the business to WrestleMania. He wants to fight Shinsuke Nakamura by himself. Who would’ve dreamed of this match ever happening in the WWE? Styles is not just fighting for himself, he’s fighting for The WWE Universe. It will be nothing short of phenomenal.
Dolph Ziggler comes out to interrupt Styles. Ziggler calls Styles desperate. This is coming from a man who’s been in the company for 12 years and has never truly reached his potential. Ziggler says that it took Styles a decade to get into the company he help built. Styles will lose at Fastlane. It’s not the numbers, it’s because Styles head is in the wrong place. Ziggler calls the WWE Universe backstabbers. Ziggler was told to his face that he would never be champion.
Every time the mat was pulled from him, he kept fighting and then he became the World Heavyweight Champion. Ziggler celebrated that moment with the WWE Universe, but they didn’t deserve it. These people did what they have always done. They sat on the sidelines and did nothing. Ziggler proved every night that he’s the best whether the people in the back like it or not. The fact that he’s never had one singles match at WrestleMania is criminal. Styles can take his WrestleMania dream match and shove it. Styles will be facing Ziggler on the other side of the break.
