As the curtain call was happening and throughout the remainder of No Mercy, fans began speculating on whether this was it for Cena, and whether he might actually be retiring (or whether this recent run of historic first-ever matches that AREN'T happening at WrestleMania or a similar big show might be part of a retirement tour of sorts). Elias stomped on Crews after the match and then bailed with O'Neil ran into the ring.
Even with a distraction from Titus O'Neil, Apollo Crews couldn't put Elias Samson away.
At the TLC Pay-Per-View (Raw's next event, taking place on October 22), Asuka will make her long-awaited main roster debut.
The Miz pins Jordan at 10:12 after some help from Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel.
Will Jason Jordan get another opportunity at the Intercontinental Champion? Despite being overmatched in many ways and being beaten from pillar to post at times she picked the flawless time to inject herself at the end of the match and pick up the win.
I'm one of the few people who is a fan of Reigns, but the WWE's attempts at getting him over make him hard to defend at times.
But over to you Roarers/Lord of Pain: who do you think were the biggest winners and biggest losers at WWE No Mercy?
Results: Wyatt ambushed Balor prior to the match and seemingly injured him, but Wyatt insulted him on the mic enough that Balor stormed back into the ring to complete the match. Wyatt helped eliminate Balor from the match and on the following episode, he addressed his interference.
RAW Tag Team champions and former Shield comrades Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will go toe-to-toe with former champions Cesaro and Sheamus. Cesaro and Sheamus asked for their rematch shortly after. He ended up losing two of his teeth, which created a great visual during the match.
So, now that Ambrose and Rollins have basically cemented themselves at the top of the Tag Team Division, who are their next contenders? Then after the match Cena raised his hand.
Despite Reigns starting things off in a dominate fashion, Cena was able to regain his composure and bounce back into the bout that featured the 16-time world champion delivering four Attitude Adjustments to The Big Dog including a one from the top-rope and two AAs delivered in a row.
Moments later, Reigns caught Cena with a quick punch and spear to win. The Miss is for the Eddie Guerrero style finish with Enzo kicking Neville in the balls and pinning him to win the championship. Jordan is one of the most naturally gifted athletes in the WWE right now, but this storyline is doing him more harm than good. Jordan's post-match promo was a fine example of why he is struggling to get over though, it was terribly scripted and went down like a lead balloon. A few minutes later, Enzo nearly got counted out and while he was outside of the ring, he held up the Cruiserweight title and that caused Neville to get upset and break up the count.
Neville toys with Amore throughout the whole match and while Amore is outside the ring, he grabs the Cruiserweight Title. She also went full heel - the pro-wrestling term for a bad guy - embracing a chaotic, entitled character who felt very much like what Harley might be in the ring. Whoever was involved in laying out this match did a tremendous job of showcasing Jax's power moves while also coming up with key spots to take her out of the action for stretches of time. He briefly mentioned his April victory in the main event of WrestleMania 33, which sent the iconic Undertaker into expected retirement.
Brock Lesnar has retained the WWE Universal Championship after a hard-fought victory over Braun Strowman at No Mercy. No antics, nothing to make Strowman look like a god before falling to Lesnar, just an F5, leaving some fans disappointed that they didn't really see an epic clash of the titans. "We could kind of understand it for the first time and we knew that we were a little further along".
