WWE put out a press release advertising the March 12thWWE Network special as WWE “Roadblock.” The special, which was previously WWE “March to WrestleMania”, will take place in Toronto and will air live at 8pm EST on the WWE Network.
The email has also announced that Triple H vs Dean Ambrose for the WWE World Title will take place at Roadblock, and the following is from the advertisement:
The Road to WrestleMania has, quite literally, hit a roadblock. On March 12, a special event will take place on WWE Network that could completely alter the landscape of The Show of Shows. That is because at WWE Roadblock, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H will put his title on the line against The Lunatic Fringe, LIVE at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
Roman Reigns captured his WrestleMania World Title opportunity at WWE Fastlane, but the following night on Raw, Triple H systematically dismantled his No. 1 contender and sent him into surgery. While he recouped from the assault, his brother-in-arms Ambrose decided to keep the 14-time World Champion busy — a challenge that The Cerebral Assassin accepted in painful fashion.
The Roadblock title match is already raising many questions. Will The Game even hold the esteemed gold when Reigns finally comes calling on April 3? After all, though Triple H is The Authority, authority is something Ambrose simply does not recognize. For The King of Kings, is conquering the completely unpredictable adversary easier said than done?
Moreover, if Ambrose does manage to defeat The Game, isn’t Triple H entitled to a rematch of his own? Plus, what will come of The Lunatic Fringe’s already established showdown against Brock Lesnar at The Showcase of the Immortals?
Find out what will happen at WWE Roadblock, live on WWE Network Saturday, March 12 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
