WWE Fastlane

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev

The Bulgarian Brute will look to wipe the canvas with The Artist, as Rusev battles Shinsuke Nakamura at WWE Fastlane.

The fuse to this explosive matchup was lit during a SmackDown LIVE clash between Nakamura and Aiden English when The King of Strong Style kneed the singing Superstar’s throat and apparently left him unable to perform his famous rendition of “Rusev Day!”

Though it is unclear whether his strike will leave English with permanent damage, The Bulgarian Brute is out for retribution, and he plans to use his WWE Fastlane showdown to derail the Royal Rumble Winner’s Road to WrestleMania, which is slated to lead to a WWE Championship Match on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

Will he succeed? Or will The Artist be celebrating Nakamura Day at the end of the knockdown, drag-out fight? Find out at WWE Fastlane, tonight at 8 ET/5 PT, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network.
