WWE Roadblock: 10 Awesome Moments

The simple things can often be the most effective...

For a company that seemingly can't wait to get to WrestleMania, it was perhaps confusing to literally put up their own 'Roadblock' on the road to that particular show.

Held at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Canada, WWE Roadblock was yet another diversionary stop on the way to the AT&T Stadium on April 3.

Before the event had even started, the company promised a WWE World Heavyweight Title bout between Triple H and Dean Ambrose, as well as a one-on-one encounter pitting Bray Wyatt against the menacing Brock Lesnar. The latter had once been tentatively scheduled for WrestleMania, so it was likely a bit of a comedown for Wyatt to learn that his marquee scrap would instead take place on a glorified house show.

Thankfully for what it was, Roadblock was enjoyable. Those courting controversy by claiming it would top 'Mania were proven wrong - even before the supershow in Texas, it's easy to imagine it will blow Roadblock out of the water. That said, the WWE Network special was a fun jaunt, and did feature some excellent matches.

This article looks at 10 distinct 'awesome' moments from the show overall, more so from the perspective of treating it like a one off snapshot of WWE road life than anything else.
