The WWE Network hosts this PPV special, one final hurdle before Wrestlemania, with the added addition of an NXT Match to draw some viewers over from NXT and vice versa this could bring some extra attention to the biggest PPV of the year.

The card is solid with thought and depth to all the matches; finally Bray Wyatt gets some legitimate competition and Dean Ambrose gets to bask in the spotlight in what could be a brutal yet predictable bout.

Without further ado lets smash through this final Roadblock  on the route to Wrestlemania and head onto the predictions.

NXT Tag Team Championship Match: The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder) (c) vs. Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady

The prospect of an NXT match on this PPV is fantastic and could be a gauge for WWE to decide if an NXT match will be included at ‘Mania. Enzo Amore and Big Cass are rumoured to be prepped for the big leagues and this could be seen as a last send off- much like they did with the Ascension–  this will be a rough-shot affair if the Revival’s previous bouts are to be factored.

The NXT champs wrestle like an old school territory tag team and are a delight to watch, it’s hard to see past them dropping the titles,but what is clear, this will be a showcase of the stacked NXT tag division offering a perfect introduction for WWE fans to get a look at Enzo and Cass before they take over the main roster and you can’t teach that!!

Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt

On paper this is a show stealer, Brock Lesnar and Bray Wyatt both have a chaotic and hard hitting style and the chemistry between the two will elevate this to the upper echelon.

Although this match should be on the ‘Mania card, this could be the start of a push for Wyatt, which is much needed for the talented wrestler who has great things to offer.

Expect a brutal, bloody affair with both men throwing everything at each other and regardless of the outcome fans win this one and this could be the highlight of the evening.

Its hard to see past the WWE not putting Lesnar over but hopefully the loss won’t be detrimental to Bray Wyatt, giving him a chance to shine.

Brock Lesnar to win.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston and/or Xavier Woods) (c) vs. The League of Nations (Sheamus and King Barrett)

With the New Day teasing big things for Wrestlemania this will be the comedy relief of the night and is the most cobbled together match of the night. Any excuse to have the antics of Xavier Woods and Co is a welcome one from this fan.

Once again its hard to look past the obvious choice in this one and the New Day will retain and move full steam onto Wrestlemania.

World Heavyweight Championship Match: Triple H (c) vs. Dean Ambrose

One final push for this current Triple H championship reign before he drops the title to the wrong man Roman Reigns.

 Dean Ambrose is outclassing the WWE golden boy by leaps and bounds on a weekly basis and its a crying shame that the office don’t see what the majority of fans do. The prospect of an Ambrose title reign would be great fun.

What we can be thankful for is that Triple H thrives on competition and the Lunatic Fringe is the perfect appetiser for ‘Mania, with both men giving it all in the perfect way to close the event.

Expect the ruthlessness of the Game to unravel the almost unstoppable Ambrose and once again this is smart booking from the WWE up until the finish which we all see a mile coming.

The other thing that is worth noting is that this could also cement an opponent for Ambrose with a run-in or post match altercation.

It would make my year to see a curve-ball thrown and Dean Ambrose to actually win the title and face his buddy Reigns next month, its what he truly deserves but for now I’ll have to settle for one hell of a fight with the Game showcasing how dominant he still is in the WWE landscape.

Triple H to retain.
