It’s the end of the line and quite possibly the end of WWE’s fan patience when it comes to 2016’s PPVs. There are a lot of pointless WWE events, but Roadblock is battling out for that top spot and has seen 2016 flutter out like a deflating balloon. So, with that in mind, today’s review is going to be split into two sections. PPV Worthy and Raw Worthy. Let’s see how much of this show needed to be filmed on a Sunday night.
I’m a few days behind the rest of the world, but last weekend WWE put together a glorified house show and streamed it out to the rest of the world via the Network. With only a handful of matches announced beforehand, they bulked up the three-hour-long show on the night and delivered a show that while low on storyline worthy moments, was full of some cracking wresting.
In an unusual move, WWE has decided to hold a live Network special during the build-up to WrestleMania. It means that this Saturday, we have Roadblock, an almost mini-PPV that has thrown up a few interesting matches. While there is a case to be made that having to promote another event during the Road to WrestleMania is a mistake, it is happening now, and as I always do, I feel like I have to give my thoughts on what will be occurring.
