Nothing stands in the way of WrestleMania 32 now that WWE Roadblock 2016 has come and gone. The WWE Network special went as expected, and no matches affected the card for the big show at AT&T Stadium on April 3.
The Toronto crowd was lively for much of the event, which was a little bit shorter than an average pay-per-view. Four matches had been advertised for the show, but three more were added to the Roadblock card. The event culminated with Triple H’s first title defense since winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the Royal Rumble.
No titles changed hands at Roadblock, and the show was largely dominated by heels. The likes of AJ Styles, Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns were not on the WWE Network special.
Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose (WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match)
Just like they’ve done before, WWE teased a WWE World Heavyweight Championship win for Ambrose. He pinned Triple H after hitting DIrty Deeds, but the ref ruled that Ambrose’s legs were under the ropes and the match continued. Ambrose dominated much of the match, even putting Triple H in a Figure-Four Leglock and a Sharpshooter. But the tide turned when Ambrose jumped off the barricade and tried to hit an elbow drop on Triple H, who was lying on the announce table. The champ rolled off the table just in time and Ambrose went through the table by himself, and he was hit with a Pedigree when he made his way back into the ring.
Winner: Triple H
Brock Lesnar vs Bray Wyatt & Luke Harper (2-on-1 Handicap Match)
The match had been originally billed as Lesnar vs. Bray in a singles match, but the leader of The Wyatt Family didn’t even touch the former UFC champion. It essentially turned into a singles match between Lesnar and Harper, and Lesnar used seven German supplexes and an F5 to get the win.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
The New Day vs. Sheamus & King Barrett (WWE Tag Team Championship Match)
In a match that featured two heel teams, The New Day were treated like babyfaces and cheered loudly. Barrett had Big E pinned at one point, but the ref was distracted by Xavier Woods and didn’t notice. After Kofi Kingston took out Sheamus at ringside, Big E hit Barrett with the Big Ending for the win.
Winner: The New Day
Chris Jericho vs. Jack Swagger
Jericho cut a promo before his match, dissing Canada and explaining why he turned on AJ Styles after they lost their tag team championship match. In his match with Swagger, it looked like Jericho might be forced to tap out to the Patriot Lock, but he used the ref to escape the hold and put Swagger in the Walls of Jericho for the win.
Winner: Chris Jericho
The Revival vs. Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady (NXT Tag Team Championship Match)
It was Enzo and Big Cass’ first match on a WWE main roster show, but they were cheered like an established WWE tag team. They dominated much of the match with Cassady tossing Enzo into both Dash and Dawson on multiple occasions. When The Revival took out Cassady after distracting him by using Carmella as a shield, it allowed the champs to hit their finisher on Enzo. It shouldn’t be long before Enzo and Cass challenge The New Day for the WWE tag team titles since their time in NXT looks to be coming to an end.
Winner: The Revival
Charlotte vs. Natalya (Divas Championship Match)
Natalya goaded Charlotte into giving her a title match in a backstage promo, and the crowd erupted when she had the champ in the Sharpshooter and it looked like the belt might change hands. But Ric Flair forced Natalya to break the hold when he tried to pull his daughter towards the ropes, and Charlotte rolled up Natalya and used the ropes for leverage to get the pin.
Sami Zayn vs. Stardust
Zayn has established himself as a full-time member of the main roster, getting his first win in a singles match on WWE TV. He used the Helluva Kick to get the victory in his home country.
Winner: Sami Zayn
