Fastlane 2018 – Six Booking Decisions We Would Love To See

Eat, sleep, write about wrestling, daydream about wrestling, repeat. This is all we do here at WrestlingWorld. And we have decided that from now on, we will publicize the booking decisions that we would love to see. We ask ourselves the question: What if a PPV, an important TV episode of RAW or Smackdown, or a storyline went so perfectly that it gave us goosebumps in ways we had never thought possible? How would it be?

And why not start with a PPV that, conveniently, is tonight? Let us know what would you like to see, in the comment section below!


Carmella Carries.


Hardly anyone cares about The Princess of Staten Island anymore, even with her teases of cashing in her Money in the Bank briefcase, and this is partly because of how poorly she has been booked since winning the historic (?) second-ever Money in the Bank Ladder Match. She returned to Smackdown last week after months off television, only to quickly fall under Becky Lynch’s Dis-Arm-Her.

The briefcase should signify WWE’s intention of elevating Carmella, but right now, her briefcase seems to be dragging her down. We believe Carmella’s legitimacy can still be restored, and the rebuilding process could start as early as this Sunday. Having Natalya play around with cats for the entire match and Carmella single-handedly defeat the team of Fire & Glow would surely be a step in the right direction for Carmella to regain her position on Smackdown’s women roster.




At least WWE is giving Rusev a match on a PPV with the winner of the 2018 Royal Rumble. As much as we like to support RUSEV DAYYYYYY, we prefer Nakamura to overcome The Bulgarian Brute with relative ease. Ever since Nakamura won the Royal Rumble, he has not done much of worth. Proving himself a valuable asset on the Smackdown roster? No. Defeating first-rate opponent? Yes, if only The Maestro of Madness counted as one.

Simply put, Fastlane is one of Nakamura’s last chances to establish himself among the audience, as well as to AJ Styles himself that The Rockstar is a legitimate contender for the WWE Championship come ‘Mania. So, our perfect scenario would be to have Nakamura beat Rusev under 30 seconds. Rusev charges, Nakamura dodges, NAKAMURA CONNECTS WITH THE FINISHER!!! ONE! TWO! THREE! Done deal. Hard to believe? Randy Orton actually did that.



bobby roode

We really like seeing Bobby Roode head into WrestleMania as the United States Champion. Imagine his epic entrance, yo. Elevating platforms that take a minute to raise, and another minute to lower, a robe that would make Ric Flair jealous, and a championship being covered with glitter all over.

Speaking of glitter, we think that it is Bobby Roode’s best “weapon” of choice come Sunday. With his heelish actions in recent weeks, it would be logical for Roode to further propel his turn by pulling out a bunch of glitter from his crotch and throw it at Randy’s face when The Viper is about to strike with an RKO. Goldust would be really proud of the TNA veteran if Bobby actually did that.

And no, we do not want Jinder Mahal there. Not at least for the time being.
