A bit 'meh', especially after what happened between them at SummerSlam. But certainly not the worst No Mercy I've endured.

Remember when Cena was criticising the Rock for doing this.

I don’t understand why wwe didn’t just go with Angle agreeing to Coach Jordan. They could have got several weeks of storyline out of him trying to convince Angle to coach him. If they were going for a face reaction for Jordan then that would have worked. Unless their intention has always been for him to turn heel on Angle by revealing that he lied about being his son.

I thought Braun vs Lesnar was good for two guys of their size but I wonder if they have missed the key opportunity to pull the trigger on Braun. Brock needs to get back in shape though as he had some serious moobs going on.

Cena look ridiculous at the moment too, he has clearly dyed his hair and had a big bald patch coming on his crown. I think the over played ending was ridiculous as everyone knows he is off to do some more filming.

Reigns just feels utterly flat. It seems like they missed the boat for a decent heel turn, and now he just has go away heat.

I think the ending to Strowman/Lesnar felt as flat as it did because half hour earlier everyone had watched Reigns kick out of a nuclear bomb attack. And in terms of storytelling, Strowman has survived everything from the ring collapsing to being driven at with a truck.

Watching Raw talk. Cena trying to act emotional is laughable, very corny stuff. Enzo was pretty funny tho.
With all the hype for No Mercy WWE went with the predictable finish for all but one match. Boring.

Sure we’ve seen it before but they sure know how to market themselves

I’m very confident that it is just publicity for ROH and NJPW. Cody only signed permanently with ROH yesterday.

I see they've now added an LED board behind the announcers. Is there anywhere now left to light up? The barricades?!

Are all the matches at hell in a cell going to be in the cell or something? Sounds almost that way.

This is what happens when you stupidly name the show the same as the match type and the only differentiator is saying "at", "in" and "inside". I think there's only 2 (Shane/Owens and the tag team championship) looking at the graphics they throw up on screen.

WWE has bigger problems to worry about though, as they'll be filming SD from Full Sail University at this rate...

There was even sporadic empty seats opposite the camera which were visible on TV.

I'm not suprised. I watched last night as I really couldn't sleep (probably because the TV was on) and it sounded so hollow in the arena. You could tell that it was half empty.

I think it's more that they have an actual jobber as their main Champion. If they put the belt in Owens they'd have a few more seats filled than that.
