I’m all for giving credit for where credit is due and Roadblock wasn’t that bad of an event, even though we all knew what would happen in the more important matches. I thought this would be a short event like Beast in the East, but there were a lot more matches so let’s take a look at them
The New Day vs. The League of Nations – I was right. The first match of the night went as I thought it would and now we all have to look for Booty-O’s cereal in the WWE shop. The New Day are still the champions and probably will until a worthy tag team takes it from them.
Chris Jericho vs. Jack Swagger: This match wasn’t on the card when I did my predictions and to be honest Jericho is starting to be an unnecessary nuisance. He struts around like he’s something special, but he’s not. I enjoy his podcast, but only when he lets the guests talk. Once Jericho opens his mouth his cocky attitude comes out and he becomes annoying. I see that same attitude in the ring and he doesn’t have the same body as he did when he started and it doesn’t fit him. In my opinion I feel that he never drops the heel attitude and now believe it to be true in and out of the ring. Jericho won this match and even though I’m not a big fan of Jack Swagger, I believe Swagger would have been more believable.
The Revival vs. Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady – I was wrong. I have to go back to what I said in the beginning and say that I’m all for giving credit where it’s due, and Enzo and Colin really blew me away. Even though I could do without their pre-match speeches, I really enjoyed the team work between the two. The one thing I saw in the match was the great use of Colins height and strength along with Enzo’s quickness to perform some pretty amazing moves. The Revival didn’t do anything worth spot lighting and if I were to pick one team to represent the WWE Universe I would have to say it would be Enzo and Colin, because it’s their attitude that best fits.
Charlotte vs Natalya: This match was pretty good, even thought when it was announced I knew Charlotte would win. Creepy Ric Flair didn’t interfere, but I’m pretty sure they cut away right when he yelled the F Word at Natalya. I know Natalya has just recently returned to wrestling, and she looked good for the most part. She was able to lock in the figure four, but it was Charlotte cheating for the win in the end.
Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt – I was right. This wasn’t really a match with Brock and Bray, but between Brock and Luke Harper. This was a match that really meant nothing and for the most part was a pay day for Brock. Luke is tall, but not strong enough to really be a match for Brock. Bray watched as Brock defeated Luke.
Sami Zayn vs Stardust: This was another match that I didn’t know about until it was announced and it wasn’t that bad. I’m not that familiar with Sami’s history, but I am familiar with Stardust. Stardust may not be booked on the shows I watch, but his backstage interviews and appearance on UpUpDwnDwn has been pretty entertaining. Sami defeated Stardust, but I think it was more to help Sami get over so he could gain a bigger following and get scheduled more.
Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose – I was right. This match was the longest of the night and it was non stop action, and if anything it proves that Dean Ambrose can hang and perform just as well as Triple H. Each of them hit their finisher and if it wasn’t for the ropes, Dean Ambrose would have won. It seems like putting you feet on the ropes was the theme of the night, because that’s house Triple H beat Dean Ambrose.
