WWE on Xavier Woods suffering a spinal injury during Fastlane match

Man, it sure seems like most of the main WrestleMania title matches are going to wind up as triple threats.

After beating Rusev at WWE Fastlane on Sunday, Shinsuke Nakamura should be among the featured parts of SmackDown programming every week until WrestleMania 34 on April 8.

Royal Rumble 2018 victor Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev kickstarted the pay-per-view event on Sunday, following which fans witnessed a title change in the United States Championship match between Bobby Roode and Randy Orton.

Overall, this was a very good pay-per-view from start to finish. With Woods and Kingston in the match, I thought the pacing would have been better, especially in the middle, but something was off. AJ Styles, the current defending champion, will clash against Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Dolph Ziggler and John Cena. Perhaps this is the biggest women's match they could do (outside of something involving Ronda Rousey), so it makes flawless sense.

What's next: Orton vs. Mahal vs. Roode, which was set up with Roode planting both dudes with Glorious DDTs after the match. What does this mean for Raw's women's division?

Ideally, what we want to see is what already seems to be in the works: Styles vs. Nakamura for the WWE Heavyweight Championship, and Undertaker vs. Cena.

For the Women's Championship, Ruby Riott has challenged Charlotte, and I think we all know how that will go down. There was nothing bad to be found in this entire show and many key WrestleMania developments took place. This makes for a high-profile match with Asuka's undefeated streak on the line against arguably the best female wrestler in recent times- Charlotte.

Intel reportedly eyeing Broadcom to thwart Qualcomm buyout
The result of the attention was a delay to a Qualcomm stockholder meeting where Broadcom hoped the deal would be approved. Broadcom's CEO, Hock Tan, is a US citizen, and the company said that it is "in all important respects a USA company".

Carmella and Natalya battled Becky Lynch and Naomi and Rusev sought to celebrate Rusev Day at the expense of Shinsuke Nakamura.

While it may have only been booked five days before the show, Shinsuke Nakamura vs Rusev was a great way to open the night. In terms of storytelling, is it more compelling a story for Cena's journey to end with a record 17th title run attempt?

Just as it looked like we were settling in for another New Day/Usos classic, the Bludgeon Brothers interrupted with oversize mallets and an ax to grind.

Following her victory, Flair was confronted by the victor of the first Women's "Royal Rumble," Asuka.

Shane McMahon was at ringside and practically ruined the chances of Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens from winning the match.

The match was a bit spotty at times, with finishers running rampant, a table spot and the use of the steel steps, but otherwise it was a fun to watch unfold.
