WWE Roadblock: Predictions and Analysis of all the matches

Published 3 Comments

Football News

The final Roadblock on the Fastlane to WrestleMania is live on Saturday night and it boasts one of the most anticipated WWE World Heavyweight Championship matches in recent history, as Dean Ambrose fights Triple H for WWE's most prestigious title. 

This also marks the first time that NXT's Tag Team Championships have been defended on a WWE Network show and it could hopefully be a big sign of things to come. 


Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson have already faced Enzo and Cass for the titles and it was one of the greatest title defenses in NXT history then both teams fought it out at last year's NXT Takeover London event.

Since then Enzo and Cass have been edging closer to the main roster and look the most likely candidates to make the transition next, this could be a way for the group to test the way the WWE Universe react to them being part of a bigger show. It is unlikely that Dash and Dawson will lose their titles here as they await the task of Jason Jordan and Clarke Gable at NXT Takeover Dallas in two weeks time. 

WWE Writer Raza Kazi: As an NXT fan from day one, I am very pleased with the decision to have some of the NXT guys play a part in this Network special. It's a fantastic way to show them off to the crowd who many not be avid watchers of NXT but gives them a glimpse of who they could be seeing on the main roster anytime soon. We're seeing the most charismatic duo on NXT going up against the champions who are the best wrestling duo, and it's not the first time they've met either.

They act and compete like natural rivals which is fantastic, and the fans will be in for a treat with this one. I do think Enzo and Big Cass will be on the main roster relatively soon, so I see no reason to see them become the new champions. I see Enzo and Big Cass coming close, but another inconclusive finish will be a good way to ease them out of NXT and into the main roster while continuing to build Dash and Dawson as heels. The Revival will retain.


This is not a completely random match, as seen at FastLane last month, The New Day and The League of Nations are slowly beginning to build a small rivalry. Since The New Day were victorious against Y2AJ this week it means that they will take the Tag Team Championships into this rivalry and this could be their biggest test to date. 

It's fantastic to see Barrett coming back into the fold but with rumors of his impending departure and the fact that The New Day are currently more over as a heel tag team than any of the face teams in WWE right now, it would be foolish to take the gold away from them to give it to a team that still needs to establish themselves. The New Day should retain. 

Raza: Personally, I would have liked to see this as a six man tag team match where the Freebird rule would have come into play really well. The WWE have done very little on television to build this feud and have done most of the build-up on their YouTube channel.

They've made videos of The New Day mocking the League of Nations, and they're still ridiculously over with the crowd. With WrestleMania looming the WWE will be looking to have the talented trio play a big part of it so I can't see them lose at Roadblock. The New Day win this one.


Perhaps the hardest match of the night to predict, can Bray stand to lose another rivalry? Can Brock stand to be pinned by The new face of fear when he was the one who actually destroyed the old face of fear?

It's a confusing prospect, but with Dean Ambrose awaiting Brock at WrestleMania in a few weeks time there is no way The Beast can show any weakness against Bray Wyatt. He will have his family with him again as he hopes be the first man to overcome Brock in more than two years, but it seems unlikely, the best outcome here would be for The Wyatt Family to attack and Brock to win by DQ, that way both men head into Mania looking strong and it sets up a feud finishing match in the future. 

Raza: I think it will take something really special and some terrible booking to have Bray Wyatt defeat Brock Lesnar right now. Lesnar is due to face Dean Ambrose in a street fight at WrestleMania so losing to Wyatt makes no sense, which is a shame for Wyatt considering he's criminally underutilized.

I can see The Wyatt Family playing a part in this, but we'll just see how dominant The Beast can be which will set the tone for WrestleMania. Brock Lesnar will win.


This seems to be the match that the WWE Universe is most looking forward to, finally Triple H will step back in the ring for the first time as World Champion, and does Dean stand a chance?

This could just be WWE's way of having Ambrose attacked once again so that Roman Reigns can return and save his brother, but it could also finally be the shot at the World Title that Ambrose has been waiting for. All last year Seth Rollins stood in his way, this could finally be his ticket to the main event of WrestleMania and I believe that Ambrose will finally lift his first World title. 

Raza: Part of me believes Dean Ambrose can actually pull this off; it wouldn't be the first time the WWE threw us off and based on the way Ambrose is being booked, you can't rule it out. However, will the WWE really make a drastic late change with the championship considering WrestleMania is so close.

The WWE can change matches around but I think this will be a great way to make Ambrose the big face on the roster right now heading into his match with Lesnar. I won't be surprised to see Ambrose win but I feel the safer option to go with is Triple H and I feel it will be another brutal encounter between the two.
