Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar Signed the Contract for Their WWE Fastlane Triple Threat Match
At first, I questioned the decision to open the show with Stephanie McMahon and not giving the fans what they want (Daniel Bryan), but they were smart to save the hometown hero for later in the show as well as switch up the tired formula of the overdone contract signing concept. Having Ambrose come out and immediately cut to the chase was a nice change of pace, and I'm glad Reigns' mic time was kept short, sweet and to the point. Lesnar demolishing both Ambrose and Reigns should put the talk of him not feeling special as of late to rest. This segment made me more excited for the Fastlane main event than I ever was going into it.
Dolph Ziggler def. Kevin Owens
It was made apparent on last week's SmackDown that Ziggler and Owens are feuding. That's fine and dandy, but why should we continue to care about them having matches every singe week? A set-up through a backstage segment or something would have been appreciated. This was another excellent matchup between them that the crowd was hot for, but I'd be more open to them trading wins if it was a Best of Five Series or if there was a title opportunity at stake. This was Owens' third loss in the last week, and while that's not ideal, he can always get his heat back with a good promo.
