Dwayne Johnson is a hard guy to dislike (not that im trying to), he has so much damn charisma.

"In G.I. Joe mythology, [Roadblock] is the glue that kept all the Joes together but [he] was never interested in being in the spotlight and was very comfortable with Duke being in the spotlight"

Or it was the 80's and the Blonde White Soldier was an easier sell in the toy market.

"The best GI Joe movie ever." Not exactly a tough target to hit.

The best Roadblock moments are in the first cartoon movie, when Cobra Commander is turned into a talking snake, and keeps spiting rhymes at him.
