Due to a leaked advertisement for Fastlane, it was believed that AJ Styles will be defending his WWE Championship in a fatal five-way match at the main event of the PPV.
The match was expected to involve AJ, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton, however, WWE revealed a different main event for the show during the latest episode of SmackDown Live.
We noted before how Daniel Bryan had announced last week that best friends Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens will fight each other in a #1 contenders match.
The match took place during this week’s episode of the Blue Branded Show but it ended in a disqualification after Styles who was sitting at the ringside got involved.
After this, Bryan came out and announced that the WWE Champion will be defending his title against both KO and Zayn during the upcoming SmackDown exclusive PPV.
