WWE Fastlane 2021: Live Stream, WWE Network Start Time and Match Card
Before we get to WrestleMania 37 on April 10 and 11, the men and women of WWE will compete at Fastlane on Sunday.
This will be the first pay-per-view presented under WWE's new deal with Peacock TV. Fans with Xfinity cable service get the card for free, while others will need to subscribe for $4.99 per month, which is half the price of a WWE Network subscription.
The Universal, Intercontinental, United States and Women's Tag Team Championships will all be on the line in addition to three non-title bouts.
The fate of one big WrestleMania bout hangs in the balance. Edge will battle the winner of Daniel Bryan vs. Roman Reigns for the universal title, but in order to make sure the result is fair, The Rated-R Superstar will serve as a special guest enforcer on Sunday.
Let's take a look at everything you need to know about this year's Fastlane PPV.

- Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler vs. Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair (Women's Tag Team Championship)

- Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus (No Holds Barred match)

- Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Seth Rollins
- Riddle vs. Mustafa Ali (United States Championship)
Here is a rundown of the card as of Sunday morning, according to WWE.com:
The Fastlane PPV is in a tough spot. It's the last big event before WrestleMania, so WWE tends to save most of the best stuff for the biggest show of the year.
However, the card WWE has put together for Sunday has some potential show-stealers in the lineup. Bryan vs. Reigns, McIntyre vs. Sheamus and Big E vs. Crews should all be fun, physical contests.
The women's division will be represented in two bouts. The women's tag title will be on the line in one and Alexa Bliss is set to face Randy Orton in an intergender match, but the odds of them having a traditional bout are slim. This feels like a way to bring Bray Wyatt back into the fold.
The Fiend has been out of action since he was set on fire by The Viper, but with WrestleMania right around the corner, this is the perfect time to bring him back.
This show could end up being great with the right booking decisions, but in the end, it's the action between the bells that makes an event worth watching. WWE's roster Sunday is more than capable of tearing down the house.
