WWE Roadblock 2016: 5 Rumours you need to know
Is it finally time for Seth Rollins to play 'The Game'?
Another week and yet another WWE PPV is around the corner. If the brand split has achieved anything, one of them is definitely having multiple PPV’s every month. Is that a good thing? Probably not but only time will tell.
Roadblock has a strong card on paper but rumours of poor ticket sales have dogged WWE’s last PPV of 2016. A last-minute flurry of new additions to the card may help address the situation.
Roadblock will be headlined by either Kevin Owens vs Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship or by the 30-minute Iron-(Wo)man match between Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship. Also on the card a tag-team title match between record-setting champions The New Day and the team of Sheamus and Cesaro.
As of last week, we have also known that Sami Zayn will finally get his shot at the monster Braun Strowman in a match that bizarrely has a 10-minute time limit. Seth Rollins will also finally get his hands on Chris Jericho while we’ll see a triple threat match for the WWChE Cruiserweight Championship with Rich Swann defending his newly won championship against former champions Brian Kendrick and TJ Perkins.
With Roadblock, less than half a week away, let’s take a look at the last-minute rumours. So, without further ado, let’s dive in.
5: Charlotte beats Sasha Banks on PPV again
Charlotte and Sasha Banks are well and truly on the path to establishing themselves as this generation's Flair-Steamboat. Their rivalry has only intensified as the year has gone on with the Raw Women’s Championship going back and forth between the two women a number of times.
So far this year, Charlotte has beaten Banks in every PPV singles encounter between the two while Sasha Banks has bested Charlotte in the meeting on Raw. Going into Sunday, Sasha remains the favourite to walk out as champion but there is some chance that Charlotte will continue her streak over Banks in PPV’s and once again retain the Raw Women’s Championship.
After the events on Raw two weeks ago, there is also a chance that Ric Flair will show up and turn on Sasha to side with his daughter to help her regain the championship.
