Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt booked for WWE Roadblock

Bray vs. Brock

On this week's edition of Smackdown that aired in Canada Wednesday and in the U.S. Thursday, WWE announced that Brock Lesnar will wrestle Bray Wyatt at the Network exclusive special on March 12th, emanating from Toronto, ON.

This was discussed in recent Wrestling Observer Newsletters and on Wednesday's Wrestling Observer Radio.

This match was originally scheduled for this year's WrestleMania, but Dean Ambrose was moved into the Wyatt spot prior to the Fastlane PPV. Wyatt does not have a WrestleMania opponent as of yet, but it's expected that he and the rest of the Wyatt Family will compete in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

This follows an announcement Tuesday that Triple H will defend the WWE title in the main event of Roadblock. In addition, NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival (Dash Wilder/Scott Dawson) will defend those titles against Enzo Amore and Colin Cassidy in a match made official on Wednesday's NXT broadcast. 

Lesnar has been a fixture of these Network specials, competing against Kofi Kingston and Big Show on recent shows.
