SmackDown Match Cards & Predictions
Bobby Lashley vs Rey Mysterio
Bobby Lashley & Street Profits had developed a feud with LWO three weeks ago, where they interrupted LWO’s segment and tried to prove their dominance. They defeated Wilde and Del Toro the same night and attacked Rey Mysterio & Santos Escobar. Two weeks later, Rey Mysterio & Escobar defeated the Street Profits, which made Lashley lose hope on Profits.
Last week the Street Profits once again attacked them to regain the hope, which made LWO challenge Lashley & Profits for a Six-Man Tag Team match at Fastlane. Ahead of Fastlane, the veterans of both the factions will go one-on-one this week.
As per speculations, the match could end in a disqualification by the interruption of Street Profits and LWO. Post-match could witness the third member of Team LWO.
