WWE Fastlane takes place next Sunday, March 10th at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. As we reported a few days ago, updated local advertising for the event lists Roman Reigns returning to action.
The ads promote Reigns team up with Seth Rollins in a 2-on-3 handicap match against Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley & Baron Corbin. The latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter provides more information regarding Roman Reigns’ role at Fastlane.
The Big Dog is in fact scheduled to be in action at Fastlane, but his match will be a variation of what’s being advertised locally. As seen on Raw, the returning Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins ran down to ringside and saved Dean Ambrose from an attack at the hands of Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, Elias and Baron Corbin.
According to the Observer report, the current plan is for a Shield reunion at Fastlane. Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will ride together once again. There are currently two scenarios being discussed for Fastlane. One scenario has The Shield squaring off against McIntyre, Lashley and Corbin.
There is also preliminary talk of Braun Strowman teaming up with The Shield and Elias joining the heel team.
Either way, it’s a safe bet that Reigns will wrestle his first WWE match since October next weekend. We hope to get an update on Raw this coming Monday.
