|Raw's WWE Roadblock: End of the Line 2016 Spoilers|
WWE Universal Championship Match: Kevin Owens (c) vs. Roman Reigns
I would have rather preferred Seth Rollins against Kevin Owens one more time while Chris Jericho defeated Roman Reigns to win the United States Championship, but oh well. It's always a little weird when two champions face each other and both titles aren't on the line, but they couldn't get rid of the US title or merge champions in this scenario, so let's just suspend our disbelief and accept what it is.
Kevin Owens is going to retain somehow. The method in which this happens is still up in the air. Triple H won't be interfering as he has a grudge against Rollins, not Reigns. They've been teasing the split between Jericho and Owens, so I doubt that will be the case. Maybe Owens just cheats all by his lonesome?
PREDICTION: Kevin Owens retains.
Chris Jericho vs. Seth Rollins
This should be good, but I can't imagine anything particularly special happening at the same time.
PREDICTION: Seth Rollins wins.
Raw Women's Championship 30-Minute Iron Man Match: Sasha Banks (c) vs. Charlotte
There goes that idea that they're finally putting Charlotte vs. Sasha on the backburner, right? I really hope this isn't a scenario where Charlotte wins the title back to keep her pay-per-view record going.
PREDICTION: Sasha Banks retains.
Cruiserweight Championship Match: Rich Swann (c) vs. Brian Kendrick vs. TJ Perkins
I'm happy to see Perkins still in the mix, as he was entitled to another match and never received it. This keeps that storyline intact and gives us a different vibe. We've yet to see a triple threat match with the cruiserweight division this year, and these guys are all entertaining to watch, so I'm expecting this to be one of the better matches of the night.
PREDICTION: Rich Swann retains.
Braun Strowman vs. Sami Zayn
There's a stipulation attached to this where Sami Zayn has 10 minutes to last, not that it's just a standard match. That 10-minute time limit will definitely come into play here, I think. That's a means for Strowman to not lose, but also to avoid having Zayn get his ass whooped and pinned in the 2 minutes Strowman said he could do it. Basically, this will end with Zayn not getting a victory, but not losing, either. The match will end at the time limit and Braun will be pissed as all hell.
PREDICTION: Strowman wins in theory although Zayn outlasts the time limit.
Kickoff Match: Rusev vs. Big Cass
Anybody else feel like this was a weird feud to go with at this time? Poor Enzo, too, as he's just been the punching bag to set up Big Cass. It amazes me how Enzo and Cass continually both in NXT and WWE are ignored from the Tag Team Championship picture. Hopefully, everybody comes out of this feud looking better, but so far, I'm not loving it.
PREDICTION: Big Cass wins with some help from Enzo.
Raw Tag Team Championship Match: The New Day (c) vs. Cesaro & Sheamus
Cesaro and Sheamus earned this title shot by winning the #1 contender's match at Tribute to the Troops, and right now, I'm not sure which team will walk away with the titles. Now that The New Day have surpassed Demolition's record, all bets are off. They seem to want to have Cesaro and Sheamus to get on the same page and a title reign would do that, but isn't that a little obvious?
PREDICTION: The New Day lose.
