Welcome to PWInsider.com’s coverage of WWE’s Roadblock special from the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

In addition to the live coverage, check out Dave Scherer’s live blog for the event.

We begin with a video package 

Your announcers are Michael Cole, John Layfield, and Byron Saxton.

The New Day make their way to the ring, but first they tell Toronto not to feel SOUR as they feel the POWER of the New Day.

There is a table in the center of the ring for the New Day and they have something to say.

Xavier has a question for Toronto.  He asks what do you see when you look at the New Day.  He says you see the Power of Positivity.  You see hips that do not lie.  You see his girl Francesca 2.  Most importantly you see the WWE World Tag Team Champions.

Kofi says this is due to the fact that they eat their BOOTY-Os Cereal.  They unveil the package for BOOTY-Os as the crowd chants for it. 

Big E acts like a child who does not want to eat his Booty-Os.  Xavier plays the father and he asks him to say what .  Big E says that if he does not eat it, he will be like Del Rio or a king without a kingdom like Wade Barrett, or he will look stupid like Sheamus.

Xavier asks what else.  Kofi and Big E say they could not think of anything for Rusev.  Big E says he will be like the New Day and eat his BOOTY-Os Cereal.
