-WWE champion Daniel Bryan and Rowan come out to the ring to start the show before we get a recap of last week's show and how Kevin Owens is Daniel Bryan's opponent for Fastlane. Daniel says that he doesn't care who he faces at Fastlane and that it's his time to speak. Daniel mocks Kevin and says he has everything to lose as the planet's champion and that he has the pressure of knowing that if he loses the planet will lose. Kevin Owens comes out onto the stage and says that he and his family watched every show for five months as Daniel intersects that it's where he belongs. Kevin says that Daniel throwing away the old WWE Championship was the straw that broke the camel's back and that he's going to shut his mouth. Daniel says that Kevin should worry about his own mouth and says that he and the WWE Universe are lowbrow. Daniel says that Kevin has no friends left and Kevin says that he doesn't need any help to beat Daniel this Sunday at Fastlane. Kevin sends Rowan out of the ring before Daniel counters a stunner and Rowan slams him to the mat before they leave as we go to commercial.
