Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman) vs. Bray Wyatt (with Luke Harper, Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman)
Reactions: This changed into a handicap match out of nowhere. But in reality, it was more like a Luke Harper squash match. Lesnar beat the holy hell out of Luke for a good while. But we have give Luke props for actually getting in some offense on Lesnar. That didn’t last too long and Lesnar just had his way with Luke the majority of the match. Bray didn’t do anything but look on as his family member got destroyed. Lesnar quickly laid waste to Luke with several suplexes and an F5. This was what it was – a Brock Lesnar massacre.

Sami Zayn vs. Stardust
Reactions: This was something of a RAW match with a few minutes of extra offense from the controlling heel. Stardust looked better than he’s ever been with Sami Zayn as his dancing partner. He was in control for most of the bout and even got the crowd on his side with a nicely executed Superplex. When Sami finally gained the upper hand, the match then got a bit better and the crowd responded with a bit more energy. Sami’s high-energy offense made the match more fun to watch on the big stage apart from NXT. The closing moments of this match we fun and resulted in Sami getting the win. The crowd didn’t seem to care too much, but we had a fun time viewing this nonetheless.

Triple H (c) vs. Dean Ambrose (WWE World Heavyweight Championship)
Reactions: Our expectations ran high for this championship encounter. It’s safe to say that they were certainly met. “The Game” and “The Lunatic Fringe” put on a great main event during the very first Roadblock. This match started out slow as both men started to get the crowd within the palm of their hands. Ambrose smartly targeted Ambrose’s leg and got in a ton of offense on HHH. HHH used his immense power to slam Ambrose and cause him further punishment as their bout wore on. Ambrose was in fine form here as the match reached its crescendo. Imagine out shock when we though Ambrose finished HHH with his Dirty Deeds and won the championship! It was all for naught, though. After that big moment, the match continued on and got even better. Ambrose cost himself the match after missing a big elbow drop through the announce table, which led to him getting finished with a Pedigree. This was a great match filled with near falls, Ambrose’s infectious personality, HHH’s domineering presence and smartly paced sequences. HHH retained and now Ambrose is off to face Brock Lesnar at ‘Mania 32.
