In the run-up to WWE’s Fastlane 2023, the upcoming edition of Monday Night RAW promises to be a pivotal chapter in the build-up of compelling storylines and feuds. With Fastlane just around the corner, WWE has already teased significant segments and matches for this week’s RAW, potentially setting the stage for some major bouts at the premium live event on October 7th at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Let’s delve into three potential matchups that WWE could officially confirm for Fastlane.
#3 Gunther vs. Chad Gable: A Rematch with a Twist
Following Gunther’s historic Intercontinental Championship defense last week against Chad Gable, the Ring General secured his spot as the longest-reigning IC Champion in WWE history. WWE plans to celebrate this remarkable achievement on RAW with a special segment featuring Imperium. However, it’s unlikely that the celebration will go off without a hitch.
Chad Gable, who felt the sting of defeat last Monday, has a bone to pick with Gunther. Gable even mentioned how Gunther’s actions made his daughter cry at ringside. This lingering animosity could boil over tonight when Gable crashes Gunther’s celebration, potentially leading to a heated confrontation and the announcement of a Fastlane rematch. Will this time include a stipulation to make things even more interesting?

#2 Seth Rollins vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Ricochet: A World Heavyweight Championship Showdown
The recent showdown between Shinsuke Nakamura and Ricochet ended in controversy with Ricochet securing victory via disqualification. This outcome hints at a possible development in the ongoing storyline involving Seth Rollins, Nakamura, and Ricochet.
WWE might be gearing up for a blockbuster triple threat match for the World Heavyweight Championship at Fastlane. By adding Ricochet to the mix, the dynamic of the rivalry between Nakamura and Rollins would undergo a dramatic shift. With Rollins potentially at risk of losing his title without even being pinned, this matchup would surely create significant anticipation among fans.
#1 Jey Uso vs. Dominik Mysterio: The Clash of Titans Beckons
Another enticing match that could be added to the Fastlane 2023 card is one pitting Jey Uso against Dominik Mysterio. The genesis of this potential feud can be traced back to Dominik’s recent interaction with Jey, where he offered the latter a chance to join The Judgment Day faction.
However, Jey Uso’s response remains elusive, and if he rejects the offer, it could set the stage for a fierce confrontation with the villainous faction. Dominik, the current NXT North American Champion, may find himself defending his title against Jey Uso at Fastlane 2023, offering an opportunity to elevate Jey’s position upon his RAW return.
As the WWE Universe eagerly anticipates Fastlane, these potential matchups add intrigue and excitement to what is shaping up to be a blockbuster event.
