Edge Vs. Jey Uso, Sasha Banks Vs. Nia Jax Set For Next Week's WWE SmackDown

A loaded pre-Fastlane card

The Fastlane go-home edition of WWE SmackDown will include a Women's title bout, and Edge's first SmackDown match in nearly a decade.

Edge's match will come against Jey Uso, and the winner will serve as guest enforcer for Roman Reigns' Universal title defense against Daniel Bryan at the March 21 pay-per-view.

The match was set up during Reigns and Bryan's contract signing Friday night. Uso was on hand, and suggested that he be the guest enforcer for the match. This prompted Edge to come out and challenge him to a one on one match for next week, in which the winner would earn that role.

The match marks the first time Edge has wrestled on SmackDown since the weekend of WrestleMania 27 in 2011. It was on the April 1, 2011 edition of SmackDown that Edge teamed with John Cena, Randy Orton, and Rey Mysterio to defeat their respective WrestleMania opponents in Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, CM Punk, and Cody Rhodes.

Additionally, Sasha Banks will defend her SmackDown Women's title against Nia Jax on next week's card. The match came to be when Reginald suggested to Nia that she make the challenge, so that she could become a double champion.

Jax and Shayna Baszler will defend the Women's Tag Team titles against Banks and Bianca Belair at Fastlane next Sunday.
