WWE Might Have To Find A Rollins Replacement For WrestleMania

He got a warm reception to the crowd as Foley made the main event of the night between the two of them. After the match, he went straight to Foley asking for real competition.

- The reason Samoa Joe wore a suit on RAW, according to Dave Meltzer (via Wrestling Observer Radio) is that the idea was to have him look like a hitman for the mob. However, the latest WWE rumors have revealed that Rollins is expected to be healthy at WrestleMania 33 and he will face Triple H.

- Roman Reigns will appear at the World of Wheels event at Bartle Hall in Kansas City, Missouri on Friday from 6 to 9 PM. The Club's title rematch with a flatlining Sheamus and Cesaro ended in disqualification thanks to a scuffle with Enzo and Cass that fell woefully flat, whilst The New Day's clean win over The Shining Stars was so devoid of effect that it nearly returned the entire product back to the days of squash-match tapings.

Nia Jax faced Bayley in a singles match.

The match between the two was a typically short but entertaining TV brawl that left plenty behind for another day, and also served to confirm the "Fastlane" contest between Reigns and Braun Strowman, who had threatened General Manager Mick earlier in the night after a return to squash match duties fell well below his expectations. It should be noted that WWE is still planning on having Rollins have his match at Wrestlemania as they feel he will be fine and ready to go. Tonight could very well bring about the start of that card being built, and Kevin Owens needs something to do, so, why not put the title on the line against Goldberg? As recently reported by Inquisitr, a major stipulation is rumored to be added to Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg bout at WrestleMania 33, and it will be for the Universal Championship.

But, first, he wanted Owens for the title at Fastlane.

He hit Zayn with a super-kick when the referee was not seeing allowing Jericho to connect with the code-breaker to retain the title.

Gallows & Anderson defended their title via disqualification against Sheamus and Cesaro after Enzo and Cass involved into the action.

There were a couple of matches from the Cruiserweight division with zero reaction from the crowd. Sure, it's a decision that moves the story of Strowman vs. Reigns forward, but the implication of the booking is that Samoa Joe was moments away from losing. Having Joe cost Reigns the match against Strowman would give Rollins time to heal and set up a tag feud of Strowman and Joe vs Rollins and Reigns. The mountain among men then delivered a brutal assault to Reigns to close the show.
