WWE: Three talking points from WWE Roadblock

Published 5 Comments

Football News

One stop before Wrestlemania, WWE hosted Roadblock on the Network as a special pay-per-view last night as Triple H defended his title against Dean Ambrose.

Toronto, Canada was treated to a fairly eventful match-card, as three titles were defended, including the Tag-Team titles, the Divas championship and the WWE World Heavyweight championship.

However, it's time to look into the talking points of the evening and what stood out from the network special. With just three weeks to go until the big one, here are my three talking points from WWE Roadblock.

3) Chris Jericho Still Has It

The man is a genius on the mic. Especially when it's as a heel.

Y2J turned on his tag-team partner AJ Styles on Monday Night RAW and then cut a rather bizarre promo on Smackdown, burning the Y2AJ shirt and slowly chanting for AJ Styles. He then appeared at WWE Roadblock in his home country of Canada. 

Despite this, he instantly turned the crowd against him and made them boo him throughout his rather brutal promo.

Jericho mocked Canada and revealed why he had to leave the country and stated Toronto was the anus of Canada.

Although Jericho is usually used now to get over the younger talent, you cannot criticise his mic skills, and when he's a heel, it's that much better.

2) Bray Wyatt and Brock Lesnar Not Finished Yet

When on earth will these two go head-to-head?

We thought it was going to happen last night, but it somehow turned into a two-on-one handicap match, which in the end was just a one-on-one match between Brock and Luke Harper.

The beast took Harper to Suplex City before hitting him with an F-5 and getting the win, but throughout the match, they were teasing a run-in between Bray and Lesnar.

With Brock scheduled to fight Dean Ambrose at WrestleMania, when will these two finally get in the ring together?

Summerslam maybe? Whenever it is, the promos and the actual match will surely not disappoint.

1) Triple H Retains Despite Ambrose Pin

Sounds like a confusing heading, so let me elaborate.

The two put on a great match with some rather impressive spots, but the WWE Universe thought they were crowning a new champion when Dean Ambrose picked up a three-count after hitting Triple H with a Dirty Deeds.

The ref counted three, but immediately overruled his decision by saying Ambrose had his foot under the bottom rope.

Whether he did or not is yet to be revealed, but it was a let-off for the champ, who eventually won after hitting a Pedigree in the middle of the ring.

Does this mean it will just be Triple H vs Roman Reigns at WrestleMania? Brock Lesnar vs Dean Ambrose? Or will there be yet more twists in the next few weeks.
