WWE News: Several new Roadblock 2016 matches being added to the card

Recent incidents on RAW might lead to the addition of more matches to the event.

The Roadblock 2016 card is getting better

As Roadblock: End Of The Line draws closer, several rumours suggest that a couple of matches will be added to the original match card.

As of now, there are three matches scheduled for the event which will witness Kevin Owens defend his Universal Title against Roman Reigns, Rollins taking on Jericho and Charlotte facing Sasha Banks in a 30 minute “Iron Woman” match for the Women’s title to end their feud once and for all (hopefully).

According to ringsidenews.com, Sami Zayn will take on Braun Strowman at the event after weeks of build up involving the RAW GM Mick Foley. Another match which is rumoured to take place will most probably involve Enzo or Big Cass taking on “The Bulgarian Brute” Rusev.

The foundation of this match was laid with the “nude” Enzo angle which further led to the eyebrow-raising hotel room angle where Rusev got the better of Enzo. Cass was scheduled to face Rusev on RAW, but the match never started as a result of the angle.

This scenario would lead to a match between these two at the event.

The focus would also be on New Day as they near the elusive record of most number of days holding the tag team titles, New Day are scheduled to defend their titles on RAW in a triple threat match.

The prospect of Sheamus and Cesaro winning the titles has been widely discussed for the event as many believe that the time of New Day is over. The triple threat match on RAW will most likely lead to a match at Roadblock between the New Day and the pair of Sheamus and Cesaro.

Roadblock is the final PPV of the year, and the event will see some seeds sown for the much anticipated Royal Rumble 2017.

As reported earlier, the possibility of Reigns walking out with both the titles have soared higher as McMahon believes that Reigns is ready for another push. The possible title change will lead to several twists in the highly unpredictable Royal Rumble.

Roadblock: End Of The Line is scheduled to take place at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on December 18, 2016.
