The New Day vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev Added To WWE Fastlane; Xavier Finds Out On Twitter

A new match has been added to the WWE Fastlane Kickoff show.

WWE announced that New Day members Big E & Xavier Woods will face Rusev & Shinsuke Nakamura in tag team action this Sunday.

Qualifying Matches Announced For New Japan Cup USA, Tournament Starts 4/3

The unlikely alliance of The King of Strong Style & The Bulgarian Brute is a very interesting combination of brutality and cunning. They  forged their union in recent months out of the ashes of their respective United States Championship losses. Yet, despite all that they clearly bring to the table, do Nakamura & Rusev have the strength to overcome two-thirds of the longest-reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE history, especially considering that Big E & Woods are fueled by resentment over their cohort Kofi Kingston being replaced in Sunday’s WWE Title Match?
