(2017, 2019, 2021–present)
WWE Fastlane is a professional wrestling pay-per-view and WWE Network event produced by WWE, a Connecticut-based promotion, and broadcast live and available through pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network. The event was established in 2015; it replaced Elimination Chamber in the February slot of WWE's pay-per-view calendar. The name of the event is a reference to its position on the "Road to WrestleMania". In 2015 and 2016, Fastlane was held in February until after WWE reinstated the brand split in July 2016, which moved it to March in the successive years. In 2017, Fastlane was a Raw-exclusive pay-per-view and in 2018, it switched to being SmackDown-exclusive; following WrestleMania 34 that year, all PPVs ceased being brand exclusive. The event was produced annually until 2020 when Fastlane was replaced by Super ShowDown on the pay-per-view calendar; however, Fastlane was reinstated in 2021.
