Daniel Bryan and Kevin Owens Segment: I’m glad WWE went ahead and put these two together just six days ahead of Fastlane, because the entire PPV doesn’t have momentum, especially since we’re 5 weeks from WrestleMania. Good exchange between the two that gives the fans something to look forward to come Sunday. -C+

The Miz vs Jey Uso: Just last week, neither tag team was seen on television so here’s a match before we see the Tag Team Titles get defended on Sunday. Okay match, but WWE should be consistent with the story. -C+

R-Truth’s US Open Challenge: The show picked up from here as we saw a Fatal Four Way Match as R-Truth defended the United States Championship against Andrade, Rey Mysterio and Samoa Joe. This was a brawl from start to finish and Joe captured his first championship on the main roster and I cannot wait to see what this will bring to the table in the upcomg months. -A

Ricochet and Aleister Black vs The Bar: What is odd about this that one team is challenging for the Raw Tag Team Championships, but still competing on Smackdown. Nonetheless, glad that Ricochet and Black are together and not floating around, and I cannot get enough of the Bar. Good work from all men and seeing the Hardyz make the save after the match was nice. -B 

Mandy Rose vs Naomi: Well it’s good to finally see the women showcased on Smackdown, as the women’s division was vacant last week besides Charlotte. Mandy being the next challenger against Asuka baffles me, as Sonya Deville would be my pick to give her a competitive match. -C

Kevin Owens vs Rowen: Not much of a match here as Bryan joined in to beat down Owens until Mustafa Ali returned and made the save. Something tells me that we might see a multi-man match at WrestleMania involving Bryan, Owens, Kofi and Mustafa for the WWE Championship. I wish it would be Kofi vs Bryan, but as long as it pays off, I will enjoy the ride. -B+

Charlotte and Becky Segment: A good brawl between the two but Becky was obliterated by Rousey on Monday, so it was odd to see her get the upper hand on Charlotte leading to Fastlane. Oh well. The story has been good thus far and I’m glad to see them getting all the attention. -B+
