John Cena is set to team up with LA Knight in Fastlane to take on the Bloodline duo of Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso in Fastlane. The 16-time world champion has been in the feud with the Bloodline since he returned to the Friday Night Smackdown. Cena triggered Jimmy saying that the wrong Uso quit. It did not go well with Jimmy, who attacked him later.
Cena was aided by AJ Styles, who had a feud with Jimmy in Smackdown. As Jimmy joined Sikoa to take on Cena, the Phenomenal assisted Cena in clearing the Bloodline duo in the Smackdown. The feud looked to be catching pace before the duo of Sikoa and Jimmy brutally injured Styles in the backstage in Smackdown.
Cena was to sign a contract to face Sikoa and Jimmy in Fastlane. But without his partner Styles, there was a dilemma around the participation of Cena in the event. Nevertheless, Cena signed the contract to take on Jimmy and Sikoa himself in Fastlane, all by himself. As Cena signed the contract, the duo of Sikoa and Jimmy attacked Cena in the Smackdown.
L A Knight came out of nowhere and assisted Cena against the Bloodline duo. Knight had a little faceoff with Cena during the Payback. In the event, Cena was the host and turned out to be the guest referee for the match between Knight and The Miz. Knight won the match and Cena endorsed him by acknowledging him for beating The Miz fair and square.
As Knight assisted Cena on Friday Night Smackdown, he signed the contract to team up with Cena to take on Sikoa and Jimmy in Fastlane on the 7th of October. The Fastlane will be having some other exciting matches along with the Bloodline vs Cena and Knight. In the Last Man Standing match, Shinsuke Nakamura will take on Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Bobby Lashley and the Street Profits will take on The LWO and Rey Mysterio.
