Is Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar secretly the Wrestlemania main event?

Wrestlemania is still a week away, but WWE's narrative took a weird twist on Monday's Raw. Dean Ambrose, standing in for his injured friend Roman Reigns, challenged Triple H to a WWE World Heavyweight title match. The storyline weaved through the episode of Raw, leading to a main event match between Ambrose and Alberto Del Rio. Triple H and the League of Nations attacked Ambrose, but in the aftermath Hunter gave Dean his title match. 

This match is now set to main event the former March to Wrestlemania event, now called WWE Roadblock. (Can I just say how refreshing it is that WWE finally took the whole Road to Wrestlemania thing they've used for years and started to make car themed special event titles.) And with Reigns being off television for at least a couple weeks, one wonders if WWE might pull the uneven star out of the Wrestlemania main event. 

A title win by Dean Ambrose at Roadblock could easily set up his No Holds Barred match at Wrestlemania to be a huge main event, arguably a much more substantial one for fans as well. Lesnar is a proven WWE commodity, while Ambrose is the man that WWE fans want to get behind right now. Ambrose validating his ascendancy with a win over the nearly unstoppable Brock Lesnar at the biggest show of the year certainly could bring in viewers for a WWE desperately short on star power. 

Or this could all be wishful thinking. Roadblock could just be a short bump in the WWE schedule with little actual storyline setup for the thirty-second Wrestlemania. It seems we will have to wait until March 12th to find out.
