Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present

No Mercy 2017
Apollo Crews vs Elias
WWE Cruiserweight Champion match:
(c) Neville vs Enzo Amore
The cruiserweight division has been poorly booked since the start other than really Neville and his booking. Neville has been the only bright spot of the division and though Enzo has arrived he has been "buried" since around June. This has lead to Enzo look very weak and I think that there is no way Neville should loose this match so this one is no doubter in my opinion.
Finn Balor vs Bray Wyatt
Even though the build for this one is 100x's better then the one at Summerslam I still have written off this feud as a poor excuse of what could've been a great feud. With that being said I hope it ends tonight with Bray getting the win but I think we all that's not how it will happen and Finn will get the win tonight.
WWE Intercontinental Title Match:
(c) The Miz vs Jason Jordan
Last week this is in my opinion the first time Jason had gotten a good reaction since the begining of the storyline with Angle. I do think that Jason is a very talent performer, but for him to beat The Miz it is far too soon for him to be winning the title. Also there is no doubt that this period of time has been the best run of Miz's career and shouldn't drop the title just yet. With that being said Miz will win this match.
WWE Tag Team Title Match:
(c) Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose vs The Bar
These two teams tore the house down at Summerslam and had one of the best finishes in a while for a tag match. But things have been booked pretty poorly in the build to the event and with that being said I think this should see the end of the feud. Rollins and Ambrose will keep the Tag Team titles and maintain The Shield reunion at least for now.
WWE Women's Championship Match:
(c) Alex Bliss vs Sasha Banks vs Bayley vs Nia Jax vs Emma
The build for this match has been nothing more than a cluster-fuck and it was pretty clear that the WWE has no idea what to do with a lot of these women and that's why they were placed in this match. I do think that this match will be the end of Alexa's run with the title will end tonight but not sure who will get the belt. If I had to pick I think it's time for Nia to get her run with the belt.
John Cena vs Roman Reigns
Fact is there is nobody that doesn't think this match shouldn't be happening at Wrestlemania instead of tonight, but either way Cena will be facing Roman tonight. These two have been one of the many dream matches that people have been wanting to see Cena became a "free agent" once his return. The build for this match has been the best and worst of Roman Reigns as for once this feud has allowed Roman to show some weakness and not be unstoppable. Roman may have been booked as a star but this build made it clear that he doesn't hold a candle to Cena on the microphone. I have been going back and forth with this match and I think I am going to go with Cena getting the win.
WWE Universal Title Match:
(c) Brock Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman vs Braun Strowman
This match has been built up superbly and is just another indication as to how well Braun has been booked since the Brand Split last year and why it was such a great decision to split him from the Wyatt's. However, this feud has been built to look like the Joe vs Brock build from Great Balls of Fire and with that being the case I think I am going to go with Brock holding on the title tonight against Braun.
