Jason Jordan wins Raw’s main event, gets a shot at Miz’s Intercontinental title at No Mercy

Unhappy that his Intercontinental title was on the verge of being left off a second consecutive pay-per-view (PPV), The Miz gave Raw General Manager Kurt Angle an earful to open the No Mercy ‘go home’ show in San Jose on Sept. 18.

He didn’t much like it when Angle announced his son Jason Jordan would be getting a chance to earn a championship match in a Fatal 4-Way with The Hardy Boyz and Elias either, though. The A-Lister lobbied to have his Miztourage of Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel to the contest, and Raw’s main event became a Six-Pack Challenge instead.

A few storylines threaded through the match. It was the biggest opportunity of Elias main roster - heck, his whole WWE - career. Matt and Jeff Hardy went “every man for himself” and brawled with each other early and often. Tensions were hinted at between Miz and his lackeys.

In the end, it was the ongoing story of Jordan seeking to prove he belongs while the Awesome One strives to make it clear he’s benefitting from Angle’s favoritism.

To send it home, Miz, Axel and Dallas jumped JJ to end the show, with the soon-to-be father telling Jordan he was going to continue as champ after Sunday - and prove Angle a horrible dad, and Jason nothing but a bastard.

This match joins, and probably rounds out, the No Mercy card:

Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Braun Strowman for the Universal championship
Roman Reigns vs. John Cena
Bayley vs. Emma vs. Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Nia Jax vs. Sasha Banks in a Fatal 5-Way for the Raw Women’s title
Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins (c) vs. Cesaro and Sheamus for the Raw Tag Team championship
Enzo Amore vs. Neville (c) for the Cruiserweight title
Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Bálor
