411’s WWE Roadblock Report 03.12.16

March 12, 2016 | Posted by Scott Slimmer

Welcome to 411’s WWE Roadblock 2016 Report. We are LIVE in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

We start the show with the New Day making their way to the ring for their match against the League of Nations. Xavier asks the WWE Universe what they see when they look at the New Day. They see positivity. They see hips that just don’t lie. They see his girl, Francesca II. And most of all, they see the WWE Tag Team Champions. And it’s all because they eat their Booty-O’s. Because if you don’t eat your Booty-O’s, you’ll be a king without a kingdom like King Barrett. If you don’t eat your Booty-O’s, you’ll look stupid like Sheamus. So eat your Booty-O’s… because New Day Rocks.

BREAK THE WALLS DOWN! Y2J is in Toronto, and he’s making his way down to the ring. Jericho grabs a mic and tells the fans in Toronto to shut their dirty mouths. They’ve had the chance to cheer for Jericho for months, but instead they decided to chant for AJ Styles. Typical Canadians – just a little bit behind, just a little bit slower than the rest of the world. Jericho says that the irony is that he’s the greatest icon in the history of this country, but he’s ashamed of that. He’s ashamed of that, because he’s ashamed to be Canadian. He’s so ashamed that he moved out of Canada a long time ago, and it’s the smartest move he’s ever made. And you want to know why he moved? He moved because Canada stinks. Literally. Canada stinks, and Toronto is the anus. So cheer for whatever flavors of the month you want. AJ Styles, Jack Swagger, whoever. But Jericho isn’t the flavor of the month or the next big thing… he’s the only thing. He’s the only thing that matters, because he’s the best in the world at what he does.
