Last night at WWE Roadblock, wrestling fans were teased once again that happiness would once again come to the WWE World Heavyweight championship. In the main event, Triple H defended his belt against Dean Ambrose. Near the end of the night, Ambrose hit HHH with the Dirty Deeds, but his foot was caught under the bottom rope, which caused the referee to not count the pin. As soon as he hit the count of three, the arena in Toronto exploded, as well as the entire WWE Universe.
However, they continued to tease the fact that Ambrose will get the WWE championship. It was a great match, even though the result wasn’t what WWE fans truly wanted. A good picture has surfaced showing Ambrose’s foot wasn’t even under the bottom rope. If WWE officials want to change the main event, Ambrose has a caveat, in which he could challenge for the WWE championship at WrestleMania.
Most-likely, Ambrose’s match with Brock Lesnar is still on, even though last night’s festivities involving the Beast Incarnate had a lot of WWE fans scratching their heads. Bray Wyatt was intended to face Lesnar in a one-on-one match. So, when Wyatt came out, he cut a promo saying that he and Harper will decimate Lesnar at WWE Roadblock. As soon as the match began, Harper was in the ring and Wyatt didn’t lift a finger.
That surely made the WWE Universe ponder on Wyatt’s involvement at WrestleMania. Even though it seemed like they were protecting a future Wyatt and Lesnar match, Ringside News and Dave Meltzer are saying that WWE officials are saving that for a post-WrestleMania match.
“Dave Meltzer mentioned on the today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio that the company is saving Bray Wyatt vs. Brock Lesnar for post-WrestleMania.
“Bryan Alvarez pointed out that originally the plan was for Luke Harper to face Brock Lesnar one-on-one in the match, but those plans changed to Bray Wyatt, and we still didn’t get either one of the matches advertised, which is very weird.”
Remember, this wasn’t supposed to happen at WWE Roadblock. Bray Wyatt and Brock Lesnar were planning on wrestling at WrestleMania, but WWE officials transitioned to another idea. WrestleZone.com had the latest update near the end of February, when Ambrose’s fight with the Beast Incarnate was mentioned.
“Originally, Wyatt was supposed to interfere in the main event Triple Threat match at Fastlane, setting up Lesnar vs Wyatt at WrestleMania, but that of course did not happen.
“Instead, WWE planted the seeds last night for a Brock Lesnar vs Dean Ambrose match at WrestleMania, and Ambrose will indeed be Lesnar’s opponent at the PPV in April.”
Since that update, Ambrose’s match with Lesnar became official, and now it’s a Street Fight. Despite how good this bout will be at the beginning of April, it’s not the match fans truly want to see. Roman Reigns shouldn’t be in the main event of WrestleMania. He shouldn’t be fighting for the WWE championship and there’s no logical reason why he is in the position he’s in.
There are better talents continuously pushed down, not buried, but kept in the mid-card, or upper mid-card. Ambrose is the perfect example. The consistent pops he gets from every WWE audience out-raises Reigns each and every night.
Just because Ambrose isn’t above 6-foot-five and doesn’t have model-like looks is the reason he’s not the No. 1 man in the company? Like it’s mentioned above, there’s no logic to Ambrose not being the top guy in the WWE.
