The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the No Mercy event set to take place on Sun., Sept. 24, 2017, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This is the thirteenth show in the event’s chronology but the first one exclusively featuring the Raw brand’s roster.
We're just two weeks out from showtime, and most of the card is now official:
- Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman (Universal championship)
The Beast Incarnate survived SummerSlam’s Fatal 4-Way main event to keep his title, but Strowman did everything in his considerable power to put the champ on the shelf. The following night on Raw, The Monster Among Men let Brock know he wasn’t finished with him yet, and General Manager Kurt Angle made the match fans have been wanting to see for months now. He followed that up by taking out Big Show in a steel cage match, so we really know he means business.
- John Cena vs. Roman Reigns
Cena made clear right away that he only came to Monday Night Raw to challenge Reigns. They’ve been verbally jousting ever since, and it’s done wonders to build up to the match.
- Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins vs. Cesaro & Sheamus (Raw tag team championship)
The former champions are getting a rematch for the titles they lost. This is fairly standard stuff here.
- Alexa Bliss vs. Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax vs. Emma (Raw women’s championship)
This was originally going to be Bliss vs. Banks with Sasha electing to use her rematch clause but General Manager Kurt Angle decided to give Jax and Emma a chance to win their way into the match. They were able to do so.
- Finn Balor vs. Bray Wyatt
Wyatt has taken issue with the fact that when he lost to Balor he was actually losing to a demon, and not a man. So he wants a man-to-man match, and that’s what he’s getting.
- Neville vs. Enzo Amore (Cruiserweight championship)
Amore won a 5-Way match to earn this shot. He’s clearly being positioned as a top guy in the division and fans are responding to it.
The Miz vs. Jason Jordan is rumored for the Intercontinental title.
