Rusev - Shinsuke Nakamura, Women's Match Added To WWE Fastlane; Updated Card

Two matches have been added to Sunday's pay-per-view. 

After last week when Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Aiden English, Rusev challenged the King of Strong Style to a match at WWE Fastlane. Backstage at Smackdown, Rusev accused Nakamura of damaging the throat and therefore the singing voice of English. Nakamura accepted the challenge and said when he wins it will be "Nakamura Day."

Even though the two wrestlers have not had a singles match against each other on WWE television, they have met in a couple tag team matches. Both were also participants in the 2018 Royal Rumble which Nakamura won. 

Also added to the show is a tag team women's match pitting Naomi & Becky Lynch against Natalya and "Ms. Money in the Bank" Carmella. Naomi challenged the duo after Becky Lynch defeated Carmella via submission on Tuesday's episode of Smackdown Live.
