WWE No Mercy Reactions & Observations

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement! 
WWE had its No Mercy event tonight, live on the  WWE Network... I watched it... and of course I have my reactions and observations regarding the event, that was surprisingly backwards regarding when each match took place... 




Match Results
  1. American Alpha & The Hype Bros defeated The Ascensions & The Vaudevillains
  2. AJ Styles retained the WWE Championship over Dean Amborse & John Cena
  3. Nikki Bella defeated Carmella
  4. Heath Slater & Rhyno retained the Tag Team Championship over the Usos
  5. Baron Corbin defeated Jack Swaggers
  6. Dolph Ziggler defeated The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship
  7. Naomi defeated Alexa Bliss
  8. Bray Wyatt defeated Randy Orton
Quick Notes
  • Becky Lynch was unable to compete due to a injury, will defend the Women's Title against Alexa Bliss in early November
  • Loved the psychology used by Corbin to go after Swagger's hand to try and keep him from using the ankle lock submission
  • The triple threat match for the WWE Title was basically a house-show match, no drama, and the finish was cheap, even with a heel retaining
  • I hate the fact Ziggler won... much like Bray Wyatt having the Wyatt family, it's an act done to death, with no real benefit for the fans
  • Naomi is, was and forever will be one of the worst female performers in the WWE (just ahead of Eva Marie and Summer Rae), she is all 'show' and no 'go', and this stands out even more when she is the one subsituting for Becky Lynch
  • Nikki vs Carmella & the Tag Team Title matches were both solid, nothing memorable
  • I'd grade this show a C... a show that was just... there
