Initial advertisements, not to mention various reports, suggested Brock Lesnar would wrestle Luke Harper of The Wyatt Family at the recently renamed WWE Roadblock event scheduled for Sat., Mar. 12, 2016, at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This made sense at the time, considering various rumors suggested The Beast would be wrestling Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 32. That plan changed, however, and Lesnar was paired up with Dean Ambrose to continue the feud they started heading into Fastlane in the form of a Street Fight at the "Showcase of the Immortals."
That doesn't mean a match with Wyatt doesn't still make sense, considering it was The Wyatt Family who eliminated Brock from the Royal Rumble. They might as well tie up that loose end and this special gives them just the right place to do it.
Sure enough, it was announced at this week's SmackDown taping in Atlanta (full spoilers here) that Lesnar vs. Wyatt is official for Roadblock.
Here's the updated card:
- Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose (WWE world heavyweight championship)
- Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt
- The Revival vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass (NXT tag team championships)
