WWE is hyping that Daniel Bryan’s opponent for Fastlane will be confirmed on this week’s episode of SmackDown.
An advertisement that aired during Raw on Monday announced that the challenger for Bryan’s WWE Championship at Fastlane will be revealed on SmackDown. It also announced a segment for SmackDown where The Miz will issue a public apology to Shane McMahon after they lost the Tag Team titles to The Usos at Elimination Chamber.
Bryan retained the WWE title against Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton, AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, and Samoa Joe in an Elimination Chamber match at Sunday’s pay-per-view. Bryan and Kingston were the final two left in the match, with Kingston missing a splash off of one of the pods and Bryan following up by hitting the running knee to retain.
Kingston was a replacement for Mustafa Ali in the Elimination Chamber match. The PPV ended with the crowd giving Kingston an ovation as he stood on the stage with Big E and Xavier Woods.
The Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio is hosting Fastlane on Sunday, March 10. It’s WWE’s last PPV before WrestleMania 35.
