WWE No Mercy 2017

Posted September 25, 2017

It might not be included among the "Big Four", but WWE No Mercy 2017 was no ordinary September pay-per-view. This one wasn't. Both Elias and Apollo are talented guys but the company clearly has no idea what to do with them, so chucking them in a random pre-show match is as good as it's going to get for both men at the moment.

The opening match of the night saw The Miz, along with his "Miztourage", defend his Intercontinental Championship against Kurt Angle's baby boy, Jason Jordan.

Who should win: The Miz.

Another hotly anticipated match in the pay-per-view event involves John Cena and Roman Reigns. This rivalry has been lackluster and a win by Balor would give it a much-needed end.

Cena argued, giving Reigns enough time to recover, and just like that, the finishing sequence.

There is only a 20% chance that Alexa Bliss is walking out of No Mercy still the champion, so there will probably be a new titleholder by the end of this match.

Cesaro's tag partner Sheamus kicked rival Jeff Hardy so hard a tooth came flying out of his mouth, something his brother Matt was quick to point out on Twitter. Rollins hit the V-Trigger and Ambrose followed up with the Dirty Deeds to retain.

If you ever needed proof that being a professional wrestler is a risky business then just ask Cesaro. Reigns got in most of the offense during the first few minutes of the match. After everyone was knocked out of the ring, Bliss took advantage and hit Bayley with the DDT to get the win. Emma and Nia Jax were later added after defeating Sasha and Alexa in a tag team match. He was proud of what Roman did and he says there is no shame in failing as he will learn from it. Renee wants to know what Cena told Roman after the match and Cena won't share. Having pinned both The Undertaker and Cena in 2017, it seems pretty clear that Reigns will face Lesnar in the main event of WrestleMania 34. They went back-and-forth in the ring, which led to a Cena Attitude Adjustment.

What about the other matches?

The Leader of the Cenation then tried to put Reigns through the announce table, but that didn't work, either, as the Big Dog hit a monstrous spear. Reigns left and Cena was still in the ring soaking up the cheers and applause. Enzo brought the title in the ring but the ref took it away. The whole story of this match (and feud) was that Neville was not taking Enzo seriously.

The match had a lot to live up to and it did in a short but eventful match.

Brock Lesnar is facing off against Braun Strowman for this year's WWE No Mercy.

Here is a guy who just can not get a win to save himself, unable to gain victory even after injuring Balor before the bell and goading him into the fight anyway. Strowman hit his finisher three times but was unable to cover Lesnar on the latter two attempts. While Braun was able to grab the bottom rope to break it, but the arm seemed to have taken some damage.

It is the year of Braun Strowman, and this is the flawless way to continue his incredible journey. A surprise F5 came out of nowhere and finally subdued Braun for good as Lesnar collected the pinfall.

Widro: I think it will be a huge match but I expect Brock to walk away as champ. Brock shook his head in amazement at what he just managed to go through.
