Tag match added to WWE Fastlane pre-show


Another match has been added to Sunday's Fastlane pre-show.

WWE announced today that The New Day (Big E & Xavier Woods) will face Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev on the pre-show for Fastlane. This is the second match to be announced for the pre-show, with Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade also set to take place before the main card gets underway.

New Day's Kofi Kingston was originally scheduled to challenge for Daniel Bryan's WWE Championship at Fastlane, but Kevin Owens replaced Kingston as Bryan's challenger. The storyline was Vince McMahon taking Kingston out of the match and saying Kingston isn't as deserving of getting a title shot.

The Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio is hosting Fastlane on Sunday. The pre-show will begin at 6 p.m. Eastern time, with the main card starting at 7 p.m.

The card for Fastlane is now up to nine matches:

  • WWE Champion Daniel Bryan defending against Kevin Owens
  • Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair (if Lynch wins, she'll be added to the Raw Women's Championship match at WrestleMania)
  • The Shield (Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose) vs. Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre & Bobby Lashley
  • SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos defending against Shane McMahon & The Miz
  • WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Bayley defending against Nia Jax & Tamina
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Asuka defending against Mandy Rose
