Triple H Not Rising To Tony Khan’s Tactics

by | Oct 7, 2023 | News, WWE News | 0 comments

WWE Fastlane is ready to roll out tonight (Sat., Oct. 7, 2023) at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The evening’s action will kick off at 7 pm ET with a preliminary show, then segue into the main event at 8 pm ET. Fans can catch the action on Peacock in the U.S., WWE Network internationally, or through local cable pay-per-view providers.

Triple H Stands Apart from Tony Khan’s Strategies Tonight, a modest five-match card has been announced, contrasting sharply with last week’s AEW WrestleDream PPV, where Tony Khan presented a whopping 14 matches.

Triple H, since taking the helm of WWE’s creative team over a year ago, has shown a preference for a more succinct card at WWE’s flagship live events. He aims to keep the shows concise, in contrast to Khan’s more expansive event formats. This divergence in event management between the two could be attributed to their respective business models. While AEW relies on traditional PPV purchases, WWE does not, giving Khan more reason to pack his events.

Even with Triple H’s streamlined approach, Fastlane might appear to be a match or two short. Nevertheless, each announced bout holds significant weight, be it due to title implications, marquee superstars, or an anticipated reveal. Speculation surrounds whether an additional match might be thrown into the mix last minute. Alternatively, Fastlane might truly be one of WWE’s briefest PPVs in a long while.

The Lineup at a Glance:

  1. World Heavyweight Championship: Last Man Standing – Seth Rollins (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura. The continuation of the heated rivalry from last month’s Payback. With Rollins’ current physical condition, Nakamura’s choice of match type adds an intriguing layer to their contest.
  2. Tag Team Battle – John Cena & LA Knight vs. Jimmy Uso & Solo Sikoa. With Roman Reigns out, Cena steps in to clash with The Bloodline, and LA Knight finds himself in the spotlight alongside the veteran.
  3. WWE Women’s Championship Triple Threat – IYO SKY (c) vs. Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair. With Bianca Belair’s absence, these three top talents vie for the title, with Bayley’s influence causing potential shifts in alliances.
  4. Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship – Judgment Day vs. Cody Rhodes & Jey Uso. With internal struggles plaguing The Judgment Day, Rhodes and Uso aim to capitalize. However, external influences like Drew McIntyre and The Bloodline might affect the outcome.
  5. 6-Man Tag Match – Rey Mysterio, Santos Escobar & Mystery Partner vs. Bobby Lashley & Street Profits. With a surprise partner slated to join Mysterio and Escobar, speculation is rife about a potential return for Carlito.

In Summary: Though Roman Reigns’ absence is notable, WWE’s Fastlane has plenty of draws, from the allure of Cena and LA Knight teaming up to three championship bouts and a potential surprise reveal.
