WWE made the announcement this week that Triple H will be defending his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Dean Ambrose at Roadblock, the upcoming "March to WrestleMania: Live from Toronto" WWE Network special taking place on March 12 at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Canada.
Ambrose challenged The Game to a title match on this week's episode of Raw, to which he accepted after giving him a Pedigree. On the show, there will also be Roman Reigns vs Sheamus, The Highlight Reel hosted by Chris Jericho, AJ Styles, Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman, Luke Harper with Bray Wyatt, The New Day, The Miz, The Usos, Paige, and Brie Bella.
While it is still unclear how the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match will unfold, speculation has been released by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, according to Wrestling Inc, over what the original plan for the event was supposed to be.

The report states the: "Original plans for the March 12th WWE Roadblock special on the WWE Network called for Triple H to retain the WWE World Heavyweight Title over Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar in a Triple Threat. The plan was for Triple H to pin Ambrose.
"While Lesnar is facing Ambrose at WrestleMania 32, he will be facing Bray Wyatt at Roadblock, according to The Observer. Lesnar vs. Luke Harper had been planned before but The Observer is now reporting Lesnar vs. Wyatt.

"On a related note, there are currently no plans for Ambrose to turn heel."
Having Triple H take on Ambrose and Lesnar on the network special would have felt like a bit of overkill, so it's good to see the company hasn't gone through with this idea. There would have been no reason for The Beast to be there because he hasn't earned it.
That might be a bit contradictory, considering The Lunatic Fringe hasn't earned a title match either, but his reasoning is to defend the honor of Roman Reigns, who was beaten down by The Game last week on Raw and will, of course, face him at WrestleMania 32 for the WWE title as well.
The rumored Lesnar vs Wyatt match will make for more interesting viewing and will draw more fans to watch the event, as many months ago, this was speculated to be a match that would take place at this year's WrestleMania.
Expect both The Beast Incarnate and The Cerebral Assassin to win at Roadblock so that the WWE books them as strong heels entering WrestleMania. That way, when they lose to Ambrose and Reigns respectively on the show, the faces will hopefully both be cheered.
We know The Lunatic Fringe definitely will be cheered if he wins because he is over with the WWE Universe, but The Big Dog might not be considering the reaction he has been given to winning matches in the recent past thanks to the company forcing the fans to like him as their number one guy.
