No Mercy Kick-Off Show

Commentators:  Renee Young, Booker T, Lita, and Jerry “The King” Lawler

If you missed last week’s WWE Raw, check this out WWE RAW Live Results – 10/3/16

We kick off the show with Renee making the blockbuster announcement that the WWE World Title match will kick off the PPV tonight.

Tom Phillips welcomes us to the Social Media Lounge.

Video:  Randy Orton Vs Bray Wyatt

What happens tonight, when Randy faces Bray?  Who is the Predator?

Kick-Off Show Match:  American Alpha and Hype Bros Vs The Vaudevillains and The Ascension

Next:  The Miz Vs Dolph Ziggler Preview

Video:  Dolph Ziggler Vs The Miz.  Career Vs IC Title

If Ziggler loses tonight, he is gone from wrestling.  He has everything to gain, and everything to lose.

Promo:  Curt Hawkins

It’s a Curt Hawkins live appearance.  Curt did his own intro without talking.  And he calls this place San Francisco.  (It’s Sacramento).  Curt Hawkins did what he said he’d do, step foot in the ring, at No Mercy.  Thank you, and goodnight.  But wait a second, he is going to take another step forward.  He’s leaving us with a big Curt Hawkins announcement.  This Tuesday night, on Smackdown Live.  Curt will have his very first….match.

Next:  The Usos Vs Beauty and the Man-Beast WWE Smackdown Tag Title Preview.

Segment:  Alexa Bliss, Shane McMahon, and Daniel Bryan.

Shane and Daniel inform Alexa that due to an unfortunate injury, Becky Lynch will not be able to compete for the Smackdown’s Women’s Championship.  Alexa believes she should be rewarded the Smackdown Women’s Championship.  Daniel and Shane disagree, with Daniel telling her she will get a title match on November 8th, in Glasgow, Scotland.  But she will compete tonight.

Social Spotlight:  The Usos

The WWE audience was the reason behind their recent turn, booing them every time they get in the ring.  Are they jealous of American Alpha?  They get their Tag Team Title shot, and they don’t want to say anything about New Day on the brink of breaking the WWE Tag Team Title reign.  They are focused on tonight’s match.

WWE Smackdown Tag Title Match Preview

Tonight:  Jack Swagger Vs Baron Corbin

Video:  Last Tuesday with Swagger Vs Corbin

Preview:  Carmella Vs Nikki Bella

Nikki joins the panel.  Total Bellas talk, but Lita shifts to her match with Carmella.  Nikki is stronger now after recovering from neck surgery than ever before.  Tonight, Carmella will find out.

No Mercy Commentators:  Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga

No Mercy Kick-Off match:  American Alpha and Hype Bros Vs The Vaudevillains and The Ascension

Winners:  American Alpha and The Hype Bros.

Video:  Triple Threat for WWE World Title, AJ Styles Vs Dean Ambrose Vs John Cena.

WWE World Title match kicks off the PPV tonight.  Who wins?  Can John Cena become a 16-time WWE Champion?

WWE No Mercy, Live From Sacramento, California

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Commentators:  Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga.

Match Number One:  Triple Threat Match for WWE World Title, AJ Styles (WWE World Champion) Vs John Cena Vs Dean Ambrose.

Both Ambrose and Cena made AJ tap out to the STF, but the ref waved this off, and the match continues.  AJ Styles uses a chair to nail both Ambrose, and Cena.  AJ pins Cena.  He is still the face who runs this place.  A great start to the show.

Winner, and still WWE World Champion: AJ Styles (Via Pinfall).

Video:  Randy Orton Vs Bray Wyatt.

Match Number 2:  Carmella Vs Nikki Bella

This was in a tough spot following the Title match, but these two did their best.  Nikki wins with The Rack Attack 2.0, pinning Carmella.

Winner:  Nikki Bella (Via Pinfall)

Backstage Segment:  Shane McMahon, Daniel Bryan, The Miz, and Maryse.

This is going to be a great night for The Miz, for retiring Dolph Ziggler.  But he puts part of the blame on Daniel Bryan for giving Ziggler title shot after title shot, despite losing.  This is day number 184 of the Intercontinental Championship World Tour.  The Miz will want to renegotiate his Smackdown contract.

Video:  Titus O’ Neil and Breast Cancer Survivor Kelly Sherman.

Match Number 3:  WWE Smackdown Tag Team Title match, The Usos Vs Beauty and The Man-beast.

Slater makes the tag, Rhyno hits the Gore, after Uso had a Tequila Sunrise submission move on Slater.  Tag champs retain their titles.  The Double-Wide stays.

Winners, and still WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions:  Beauty and the Man-Beast.

Promo:  Bray Wyatt

Bray starts to laugh, speak latin, or some language, rocking on his chair.  He signs “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands.

Video:  From Tuesday night, Swagger Vs Corbin.

Match Number 4:  Jack Swagger Vs Baron Corbin.

The crowd wasn’t into this match, and it sure started slow.  But the story here was Corbin working on the hand, so Swagger can’t hit an effective Patriot Lock.  Swagger had the move on Corbin, but Barry went to the ropes, Jack went to his opponent, and Corbin poked him in the eye, and End of Days.  Match is over.

Winner:  Baron Corbin (Via Pinfall).

Backstage:  Dolph Ziggler is walking.

Tonight:  IC Title match, Career vs Title, Dolph Ziggler Vs The Miz.

Video:  The Miz Vs Dolph Ziggler.

Match Number 5:  IC Title Match, Dolph Ziggler Vs The Miz, Career Vs Title.

What a match, it had drama and action.  Maryse did everything she could to help her husband win.  We even had the return of The Spirit Squad come out, and try to distract Ziggler, but Dolph wins the match with a Superkick, and stealing the show.  Interesting thing too is when The Miz was mocking Daniel Bryan, and hitting his move set.  Truly, this seemed like a big deal, and what a great job by The Miz to carry the IC Title for 184 days.  Now continue this, with Ziggler.

Winner, and NEW IC Champion:  Dolph Ziggler (Via Pinfall).

Tonight:  Randy Orton Vs Bray Wyatt.

Backstage:  Randy Orton.

Randy looks at himself in the mirror, and sees the mirror flipping out.  This reminds me of Hogan Vs Warrior in WCW, back in 1998.

Kick-Off Panel:

Everybody no-sells this, talked about how great this last match was.  AJ Styles retained his WWE World Title earlier tonight, and we saw Curt Hawkins walk in a ring at No Mercy.

Promo:  Alexa Bliss

WWE is protecting Becky Lynch, because she has a hang nail.  She can’t beat Alexa Bliss, because Becky isn’t even in the same league as her.

Match Number 6:  Alexa Bliss Vs Naomi.

Naomi wins the match with a roll up, and she is favoring her arm in this.  A bit surprising since Alexa is the Number One Contender, but there you go.

Winner:  Naomi (By Pinfall)

Video:  WWE Hell in a Cell, live on PPV, Sunday October 30th, 2016

We hear Michael Cole’s voice, which is scary announce Rusev Vs Reigns for United States Title inside Hell in a Cell.  Raw’s Women’s Championship is on the line with Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte.  And just announced, Seth Rollins Vs Kevin Owens for WWE Universal Title.

Match Number 7:  Bray Wyatt Vs Randy Orton.

We have a match, Orton spins out of Sister Abigail, the lights go out, Luke Harper shows up.  Bray spins him around, and hits Sister Abigail for the pinfall.

Winner:  Bray Wyatt (Via Pinfall)

Kevin’s Thoughts:

We had 3 big matches, and all 3 delivered.  The decision for match order was a bit puzzling, since Luke Harper was the one who came out, and not say Sister Abigail.  I think Ziggler Vs Miz should have ended the show.  But what 3 great matches.  Very happy to see AJ retain the title, and Ziggler winning felt like a big deal.  I just hope WWE continues to build that title.  What were your thoughts?  Let me know.
