And now, it’s over. With “Fastlane 2018” out of the way, there’s nothing left for WWE to cover but the biggest show of the year with “Wrestlemania XXXIV”. Before we get there though, there was a pay per view that needed to be covered. The show did have at least one title change and that’s always important.

Here’s a quick look at the match:

Tonight at “Fastlane 2018”, Bobby Roode lost the United States Title to Randy Orton. After nearly twenty minutes, Orton caught Roode coming off the top with an RKO for the clean pin and the title. After the match, Jinder Mahal attacked both men but Roode took out both he and Orton. This is Orton’s first reign as US Champion.

You can see the full results right here.

Opinion: While this seems to be leading to a triple threat match at “Wrestlemania”, the match itself was pretty fun with Orton and Roode showing good chemistry. Adding Mahal to the mix isn’t the most thrilling thing in the world but you knew it was coming based on any of the past few weeks. At least we got one good match out of it and maybe the next one will be a surprise.

Here’s what Roode had to say after the loss.
