What's going on with the rest of the Roadblock card?

WWE.com

We're a little more than 24 hours away from WWE Roadblock in Toronto, and yet we only have four matches announced for the card.

In the tradition begun with last Fourth of July's Beast in the East, the Mar. 12 WWE Network special is a hybrid show. Part pay-per-view (PPV), part house show, with a NXT showcase match thrown in for good measure, tomorrow night's event actually features one of the biggest in-story matches in the brief history of these Saturday streaming affairs in the WWE title match between Triple H and Dean Ambrose.

But only having three other bouts locked in is odd, especially given that the show is slotted for three hours on the Network AND there are persistent rumors that not everything which happens in Ricoh Colesium will be broadcast.

We can make some educated guesses about what might happen by who's listed for Toronto, and who's not.

Chris Jericho and Sami Zayn are both "scheduled to appear" North of the border, and at one point, a Highlight Reel segment was advertised. Maybe that re-emerges, possibly even with the Likeable One?

What won't happen is anything involving either man's most prominent rival. WWE has another event in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday night, and Kevin Owens and AJ Styles will be fighting for the former's Intercontinental title in a 30 minute Iron Man match on that card.

Also appearing in Jersey at Boardwalk Hall, per the venue's website, will be United States champ Kalisto and his frequent foe Alberto Del Rio, Kane, Big Show (if he's healthy), Dolph Ziggler, the Dudleyz, the Usos, Miz, Ryback, Sin Cara and Neville.

When you throw in "the WWE Divas", that doesn't leave a lot for our Canadian friends. Some of these names could move around, and Natalya & Charlotte are specifically listed on WWE's event page for Toronto, so that's a perfectly acceptable women's house show bout (and callback to a widely celebrated contest from the early days of NXT's women's scene).

Still seems like a lot of hype to live up to, and time to fill, on short notice.

What are you expected or hoping to see at Roadblock other than Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose, The Revival vs. Enzo & Cass, New Day vs. Sheamus & Barrett and Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt?
