At Fastlane this Sunday, Shane McMahon will have his first official match since 2019.
WWE has announced that Braun Strowman vs. Shane will take place at this Sunday's Fastlane pay-per-view. Strowman wasn't included in last month's WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match and has been feuding with Shane since then. Shane has mocked Strowman and called him stupid in recent weeks.
On Raw last week, Strowman demanded an apology from Shane. Strowman and WWE authority figure Adam Pearce had lost a Raw Tag Team title match the previous week after Shane urged Strowman to tag Pearce in. Shane initially apologized to Strowman but said nothing else. Later in the show, Strowman went looking for Shane after Shane mocked him. Strowman thought that Shane sped away in a car, but it was revealed that Shane never got into it.
Strowman then challenged Shane to a match on tonight's Raw. Shane continued to make fun of Strowman and accepted the challenge. But the match never got underway after Shane stalled and Strowman went after him. Strowman went to hit a charge on Shane, but Shane grabbed a cameraman's camera and used it to hit Strowman. Shane gave Strowman an elbow drop from the top rope through the announce table. Shane then poured buckets of green slime on Strowman.
WWE is also promoting that Alexa Bliss vs. Randy Orton will take place at Fastlane. Bliss said on Raw tonight that if Orton wants Bliss out of his life so badly, he's going to have to take her out of it. Bliss said Orton will have the chance at Fastlane. Bliss asked him if he's going to take it. Orton responded later on tonight's Raw and said kicking Bliss out of his life is exactly what he's going to do at Fastlane.
Bliss has been tormenting Orton since he defeated "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt in their Firefly Inferno match at December's TLC PPV.

- Universal Champion Roman Reigns defends against Daniel Bryan (Edge and Jey Uso are facing each other on SmackDown this Friday to determine the special guest enforcer for the match)

- Women's Tag Team Champions Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler defend against SmackDown Women's Champion Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair
