Does it count if you don’t tell them? We’re less than two days away from Fastlane and, in theory at least, the card is set for the show. That’s never stopped WWE from adding things at the last minute before and that’s what they’ve done with another Kickoff Show match. This time around though, there’s a detail that they seemed to leave out and it’s kind of an important one.
WWE.com has announced a new Kickoff Show match featuring the team of Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura facing Big E. and Xavier Woods of the New Day. While that doesn’t seem to be anything out of the ordinary, Woods took to Twitter to mention that WWE didn’t actually tell him he would be having a match on the show. According to Woods, he only found out about it by reading the news on Twitter.
Glad I opened twitter today or else I wouldn't have known that we have a match this Sunday https://t.co/VlqGQ8BxsI

They certainly did what they promised. Check out what New Day said on SmackDown Live:
Opinion: That’s kind of an important detail to forget and while I’m not sure how serious Woods is with what he said, it does make for a bit of an awkward moment. You would think that WWE would make this clear enough to someone as the match is in two days and will be airing on the WWE Network, but for some reason that’s not the case. Hopefully it’s a good one and something worth noting after, as apparently that wasn’t the case beforehand.
