WWE ROADBLOCK LIVE BLOG & MATCH COVERAGE
Let us do this.
New Day vs. League of Nations
HUGE pop for the Big E entrance.
New Day did their usual pre-match promo and actually unveiled a box of Booty-O's. "They're real," they all proclaimed. Then Big E played like a kid who forgot to eat his Booty-O's, using it to make fun of Alberto Del Rio, King Barrett, and Sheamus. They didn't go after Rusev because "we couldn't think of anything for Rusev, just skip to the next part."
Sheamus and Barrett came out to a few boos but general apathy.
New Day got some early offense in as the babyface team but LON squashed that fairly quick and took control. The first hint of a finish was Kingston missing Trouble in Paradise and Sheamus countering into a cloverleaf. Kofi countered out and hit SOS to set up a hot tag to Big E, who came in and immediately went for the Big Ending. Sheamus avoided that and knocked Kingston off the top rope, then tagged Barrett back in. He set Big E up for a pin with a superkick but Xavier Woods distracted the referee. This allowed Kofi to recover and take Sheamus out on the outside before Barrett left to check on it and ended up falling to Big E's finish.

Paul Heyman was interviewed backstage.
He said he was here to advocate for Brock Lesnar making Toronto "Suplex City." He hit all the buzzwords, namely saying "Brock Lesnar" a lot. Fans ate it up. He reminded us that Lesnar is getting revenge on Bray Wyatt for what happened at Royal Rumble.
He went for the cheap heat when he said Wyatt should just join the Miami Heat and try to beat the Toronto Raptors. "Bray, you are going down down down down down down down down down."
Chris Jericho was out. There were cheers and chanting, so he immediately said "Toronto, you can shut your filthy mouths. You want to chant for AJ Styles, you can go to hell."
He cut one hell of a promo, calling out all of Canada for being behind the times on everything, including saying it's sad that he's the biggest hero to come from Canada. Fans cheered for Bret Hart and he said "you're not getting him back." Then he straight up said "Canada stinks and Toronto is the anus."
This is the best thing he's done since he came back.
He started running down Jack Swagger out of nowhere, which was just a way to get to Swagger coming out for a match.
Chris Jericho vs. Jack Swagger
Fans weren't buying into Swagger's chances here, not falling for his comebacks nor popping for his attempted finish. They immediately recognized Jericho would win when he locked on Walls of Jericho, however, and sure enough, Swagger tapped.

Enzo & Big Cass vs. The Revival
The NXT tag team titles were on the line. Enzo and Cass were hugely over in Toronto. Fans knew all their catchphrases and went along with all of it. Carmella was there and she was over right with them.
In the match, they worked it like usual, with Dash and Dawson working over Enzo for much of the match before a hot tag to Cass. He wrecked shop to set up for Air Enzo but Dawson got to him in time to make the save, just like at NXT Takeover: London.
They did a spot on the outside where the Revival suckered Cass into a 3D, putting him away on the outside. Enzo was the legal man, however, so he went at it alone. Dash tagged in after a flurry from Enzo, they hit their finish, and that was that.

They showed a pre-tape of Natalya being interviewed backstage and Charlotte interrupting to set up their match. Nattie baited Charlotte into putting the Divas championship on the line by saying the Flair family is filled with cowards. She also dedicated this match to Bret Hart.
Keep fighting that cancer, Bret!
Charlotte vs. Natalya
They went long, getting plenty of time to work something close to what they've done in the past in NXT. They did a great spot late where Charlotte got the Figure Four but Natalya wouldn't let her bridge into the Figure Eight. Nattie even reversed, and it was there the crowd really got into what looked like the finish. Instead, they got to the ropes, where Charlotte used the leverage before breaking the hold. Upon returning to the ring, she hit Natural Selection for a two count.
Hell of a near fall.
Nattie wasn't going away, so Charlotte went up top like she was going to go for a moonsault. Instead, Natalya recovered and put her down with a powerbomb and that got two-and-a-half.
"This is awesome" chants came right after.
Nattie went for a Sharpshooter just after but Charlotte rolled her up for two. Charlotte then tried the Figure Four but Nattie battled out, got back up, and locked on the Sharpshooter. They started with little heat but the crowd was WAY into it. Ric helped Charlotte get near the ropes, at least enough for Nattie to break the hold and punch him off the apron. That's when Charlotte took advantage, rolled Nattie up, and used the ropes for leverage to score the pin to retain the title.
Charlotte def. Natalya
Brock Lesnar vs. Luke Harper
Bray had a mic on his way to the ring. He said Brock is every bit of the monster we think he is, a beast, a conqueror. Lesnar came out to a big pop and it was on.
And by "on," I mean he started suplexing people. The match started with Luke Harper instead of Bray, who went to the outside and let Luke do all the work. Harper was having some success too, actually, with multiple superkicks and a spinning clothesline for a two count.
Brock slipped out finally and hit a suplex but Harper got back after it. Hey, maybe Luke has a cha... oh, no, another suplex. And another.
Lesnar was looking out at Bray while beating up his disciple. Another suplex? Yeah, another one. How about another? Yeah, one more. Toronto wants more? Give 'em yet another. "Suplex City" chant? F-5. Then the pin.
Lesnar def. Harper
I thought that was supposed to be Brock vs. Bray?
Sami Zayn vs. Stardust
This is totally a house show at this point, not that that's a bad thing.
A decent match, about what you would expect from a house show setting. Stardust beat on Sami for most of it until it was time for the comeback, when Zayn hit the Helluva Kick and scored the pinfall.
Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose
The main event, for the WWE world heavyweight championship.
Entrances started with around 10 minutes to 10 p.m. ET, and they started working like they planned on going an hour, mixing holds with rest spots. They went into hitting secondary trademark spots at around 15 after. Ambrose countered a Pedigree attempt into a Figure Four that Triple H had to punch his way out of. Not long after, Dean locked in a Sharpshooter. Triple H got to the ropes to break the hold.
Not long after, Ambrose hit Dirty Deeds and GOT A THREE COUNT.
But wait, his leg was under the bottom rope so the referee immediately waved it off. Ambrose complained and while doing so, Trips tried a roll up with his feet on the ropes like Charlotte earlier, only Dean kicked out. Ambrose got up and tossed him out before hitting a suicide dive. Then he set Triple H up on the announcer's table and went for an elbow off the barricade.
But Triple H moved.
That got a "holy shit" chant.
They teased a count out finish, with Dean barely making it into the ring at 9 but as soon as he did, he was met by Triple H and a Pedigree that got the pin.
