OSR: Fastlane 2015 Review

Fastlane 2015: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IXicC1j6No

In the next edition of the Old School Review, we go to the newest WWE tradition on The Road to WrestleMania. As we quickly approach the second annual event, it only seems fitting to revisit the first annual event. With a WWE World Heavyweight Champion on limited dates, the main event relied on the credibility of its stars. With four championships on the line, The Road to WrestleMania 31 truly goes on the Fastlane. So, here we go with the next edition of the OSR…the memory of this is good, so not a bumpy ride as usual!

Old School Review: Fastlane 2015

The opening promo is very akin to the Fast and Furious, but also reminds me of Gone in 60 Seconds (cracking film, highly recommended) highlighting the various feuds for the event tonight as we continue on The Fastlane to WrestleMania. We then go inside the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee for a red hot crowd and immediately go to our first match of the evening. Our commentators for the evening are JBL, Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler.

Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback vs. The Big Show, Kane and Seth Rollins (w/ J&J Security)

The teams make their way to the ring, with a video clip shown of how it came together on SmackDown. The match is very easily contested by both teams, and not a lot really happens throughout the match. Eventually Show, Kane and Rollins are able to pick up the win after a forgettable match. Afterwards, as they continue to attack the other team Randy Orton makes his way down to try and get his hands on Rollins, taking out Show and Kane in the process. Rollins then hightails it out of the arena, as Orton stands tall in the ring.

Match Rating: 1.0 out of 5.0 Stars

Stardust vs. Goldust

We are then shown a promo of the feud between Goldust and Stardust, which was heightened by the involvement of their father Dusty Rhodes. We then go backstage to Goldust talking to Dusty, who says he isn’t fighting his brother but in actual fact is fighting Stardust. Dusty seems quite sad by it all. Both men make their way to the ring, and the match is quite slow at getting started as Dusty is shown watching backstage. Eventually, Goldust is able to pick up the win to the dismay of Stardust. Stardust is seemingly distraught by this, as Dusty looks on backstage. In all honesty, I am very disappointed in this match because so much more was expected.

Match Rating: 1.0 out of 5.0 Stars

We then go to the commentators talking about Seth Rollins, and the events of this past week with Jon Stewart. Nice little feud built up between the two before we go backstage to Goldust and Dusty talking, before Stardust attacks Goldust. He then rants at Dusty, saying he is no longer living in his shadow. We then return to the arena for the next match of the evening.
