The WWE announced yesterday that Dean Ambrose will have his WWE World Heavyweight Championship match against Triple H 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.

The arena's website have updated the name of the show to Roadblock, but they are yet to add the WWE title match to the match card currently advertised. At the moment, the card includes Roman Reigns vs Sheamus, The Highlight Reel hosted by Chris Jericho, AJ Styles WWE debut in Toronto, Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman, and Luke Harper with Bray Wyatt.

Also advertised for the show are The New Day, The Miz, The Usos, Paige and Brie Bella. The WWE are advertising on their website that Reigns, Triple H, Ambrose, Lesnar, Heyman, Sheamus, Jericho, Wyatt, Harper, Styles, Paige and Natalya will be on the show.

From the information we have been given by the two websites and the storylines currently taking place in the WWE, we can guess what other matches might be taking during Roadblock. 

Wrestling Inc has suggested that there is a sign Lesnar could be up against Harper at the event. This follows what was the rumored planned for The Beast at WrestleMania and that was a match against Bray Wyatt. This match has likely been booked to make Brock look strong (like he needs it) entering the final few weeks before WrestleMania 32 and his match against Ambrose.

Wrestling Inc also said The New Day were previously advertised to appear on The Highlight Reel, but this is no longer the case.

However, with the recent announcement that the Tag Team Champions would defend their titles against Jericho and Styles next week on Monday Night Raw, this could be an indication that they'll clash once again on the Network special. This could be either a rematch if The New Day lose their titles, or a non-title match so that Y2AJ can earn another title shot opportunity.

By the looks of things, Paige could be having a match against Natalya at the event as well, leaving The Miz, The Usos, and Brie Bella, who could just be appearing throughout the show. 

Ambrose was advertised for another WWE event taking place on the same night in Atlantic City, New Jersey, but this obviously will no longer be happening.

His title match at Roadblock could be the start of the WWE changing their plans for WrestleMania by making The Lunatic Fringe pull double duty if he wins against Triple H. He would, therefore, have his match against Lesnar, but also be included in the main event against The Game and Reigns, as he would be defending the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

For the time being, there are several superstars you can expect not to be at Roadblock because they will be at the Atlantic City show instead. These wrestlers include Kevin Owens, Kalisto, Big Show, Braun Strowman, Erick Rowan, Rusev, Alberto Del Rio, Kane, Ryback, Becky Lynch, and the Divas Champion Charlotte.

Roadblock is expected to run from 8pm until 10:30pm EST on the WWE Network.
