John Cena defeated WWE Champion AJ Styles in a non-title match on this week’s SmackDown and per the stipulation, Cena has earned a spot in the main event of the WWE Fastlane pay-per-view to make it a Six-Pack Challenge.
Cena won his way into the match after he showed up on Smackdown tonight and said he wanted to earn a spot in the Fastlane title match, since he was still looking for a way to Wrestlemania. Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan both heard his case, and Bryan ended up saying Cena would get a spot in the Fastlane match if he beat Styles in tonight’s main event.
After Cena’s victory, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn came to the ring and started fighting with Styles and Cena, then Baron Corbin ran in and attacked from behind. Dolph Ziggler ran out for the save, but Cena ended up hitting him with an Attitude Adjustment for his troubles.
Fastlane takes place on March 11th from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, OH and will be the final WWE pay-per-view before WrestleMania 34.
