Fans can watch Fastlane on pay-per-view for $54.99 or through a live stream with WWE Network, for which a monthly subscription costs $9.99.

WWE Fastlane 2018 marked the last PPV event before WrestleMania 34.

The first-ever women's Royal Rumble match victor Asuka made it official on Sunday that she wants a fight with Miss Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania in the WWEFastlane.

The tag-team of "The New Day" was out next to compete against the Tag-team Champions "The Usos" in the title match. Charlotte will now defend her Smackdown women's championship against the Empress of Tomorrow at the "Showcase of Immortals".

BOB KAPUR: The danger here is that the potentially butt-kicking Mania match between AJ Styles and Nakamura will get diluted by adding a third person. However, the entertaining contest was interrupted when The Bludgeon Brothers came out of nowhere and attacked both teams, forcing a no-contest. Jinder Mahal then tried to jump Orton and Roode but it was Roode who stood tall as he hit his patented DDT on both Mahal and Orton.

Shane McMahon was at ringside and practically ruined the chances of Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens from winning the match. Ruby Riott was the best Fastlane match so far.

Cena entered as a free-agent in the last moment of six-pack challenge for the WWE Championship at Fastlane before making his way to WrestleMania 34 and fans went insane seeing him. The New Day vs The Usos has always been an incredible match and the chemistry they share in the ring proves that.

Drew Brees is now officially available
Brees' contract will void Wednesday afternoon, and he'll count for $18 million in dead space for the upcoming season. As of noon on Monday, anyone can legally call Brees' agent Tom Condon and offer him $30 million a year to leave.

Russian Aerospace Forces test launch Kinzhal hypersonic missile
At the time of the unveiling, Putin described the Kinzhal missile - named after a type of dagger - as an "ideal weapon" to thwart US defenses.

Jimmy Graham expected to sign with Saints or Packers?
The trade seemed to make little sense for both teams, and you could argue that both were worse off after it went down. Graham has two great teams to choose from, while other teams will likely try to work their way into consideration.

But, if I get the opportunity to wrestle Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania, a match that no one has seen on USA soil, and only happened once in Japan, this could be huge.

John Cena, also known as "The Champ" was seen on WWE Fastlane 2018 on Sunday.

If WWE plans to keep running these PPVs between Royal Rumble and WrestleMania, it's going to have to find a way to get creative. This makes for a high-profile match with Asuka's undefeated streak on the line against arguably the best female wrestler in recent times- Charlotte.

I also laughed at how many times John Cena did the Attitude Adjustment in this match.

Styles, who was driven into a table in the initial stages of the match, recovered and went on to win the title with a Phenomenal Forearm on Owens. I'm sure he will get around to it eventually but at this rate, he's kept coming back every WrestleMania for years and he might not be done yet. And, of course, the saga of Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Shane McMahon continued.
