Universal Title Match Added To WWE Fastlane

It looks to be a good one

The WWE Universal title will be on the line at Fastlane on March 21, due to the result of Friday night's SmackDown main event.

Champion Roman Reigns will defend his gold against Daniel Bryan at the pay-per-view. Bryan earned the match after defeating Jey Uso in a steel cage match on Friday, forcing Reigns' cousin to submit to the Yes Lock.

Bryan lost to Reigns in a title match at last month's Elimination Chamber. After winning a Chamber bout to earn the shot, Bryan had to face Reigns immediately after, and was pulverized in 90 seconds.

Bryan faced Uso on last Friday's SmackDown in an attempt to earn another shot at Reigns. However, the two men went to an indecisive finish.

For Friday's cage match, Bryan vowed that if he failed to beat Uso, he would hail Reigns as the Tribal Chief.

The updated card for WWE Fastlane, taking place Sunday, March 21 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, is as follows:

* WWE Universal: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Daniel Bryan

* Women's Tag Team: Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler (c) vs. Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair
