2017 No Mercy Recap

WWE No Mercy (2017) took place on Sunday, September 24th and was a Raw branded pay-per-view event. The event took place in the famous Staples Center arena of Los Angeles, California.

The event featured eight matches, including five championship matches. However, we saw only one new champion leaving the event. No Mercy hosted over sixteen-hundred attendees. All match outcomes ended by way of pinfall.

No Mercy Preliminary Results

The pre-show and first match of the night featured Elias defeating Apollo Crews (with Titus O’Neil), following Elias’ Drift Away finishing move.

The second overall bout and first match of the show’s main card showcased The Miz defeating the son of Raw‘s General Manager, Kurt Angle. Jason Jordan lost due to Miz executing the Skull-Crushing Finale.

The Miz’s Miztourage, consisting of Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas, would heavily interfere in this match. That set up Miz to capitalize on retaining his WWE Intercontinental Championship.

Finn Balor versus Bray Wyatt was a tie-breaker or “rubber” match. This is due to how Wyatt defeated Balor on the August 14th episode of Raw and then Balor redeeming the loss against his rival at SummerSlam.

At No Mercy, Bray Wyatt attacked Balor in a pre-match assault. Nonetheless, this didn’t stop Finn Balor from competing and winning once he executed his aerial Coup de Grace.

The only tag team match saw Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose versus Cesaro and Sheamus. This was logically the most fast-paced match. Two-thirds of The Shield retained their WWE Raw Tag Team Championship.

Sheamus suffered Rollins’ Ripcord Knee, followed by Ambrose’s Dirty Deeds; leading to Sheamus being pinned. During the match, Cesaro received a slingshot by Ambrose into a ring post. This incident busted Cesaro’s mouth open, breaking a portion of his front teeth.

The only women’s bout was a fatal 5-way match. Alexa Bliss retained her championship against Bayley, Emma, Nia Jax, and Sasha Banks. Bliss performed her Snap DDT on Bayley to successfully pin her afterwards.

The cruiserweight match featured Neville losing the WWE Cruiserweight Championship to Enzo Amore. Enzo utilized the material championship as a distraction to the referee. Enzo’s diversion lead to him illegally getting away with low-blowing Neville for the roll-up victory.

No Mercy Main Event Results

The sixth match of the night featured Roman Reigns defeating John Cena in what was the longest match, being over twenty-two minutes long. Throughout the match, Reigns’ resiliency led him to kick out of four Attitude Adjustments by Cena.

Reigns’ two Spears led to his victory over the sixteen-time world champion. Sportsmanship was then shown between the two superstars after the match and Cena received a standing ovation by the audience.

John Cena was then interviewed on Raw Talk concerning his career. He stated that he doesn’t know how long he can perform at age forty and doesn’t think he can be a consistent wrestler. Nonetheless, he made sure to say he will appear when “necessary.”

The last match showcased Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman) retaining the WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman. Lesnar’s four German Suplexes and Strowman’s three Running Powerslams were highlighted.

“The Beast Incarnate” executed the only F-5 in the match to defeat “The Monster Among Men.” This was the shortest match on the main card; forty seconds shorter than the women’s match.

 Writer’s Thoughts

No Mercy was an unpredictable event for me that I rate as decent.

Most matches, especially the last, could’ve had a better finish. Nevertheless, the tag team match and Reigns versus Cena were the best matches of the night.
