Roman Reigns has been running his mouth since he defeated the Undertaker at #WrestleMania, and now the veteran John Cena looks to teach the Big Dog a lesson. They won that match and were later told that they had qualified for a fatal five way elimination match that would determine the number one contender for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. For some inexplicable reason, WWE has chosen to make this card one of the most stacked of the year, with Brock Lesnar defending the Universal Championship against a hugely pushed Braun Strowman - and even more shocking, the first ever one-on-one meeting between John Cena and Roman Reigns.
Frankly, Sheamus and Cesaro make for a better tag team, but it is time to freshen things up and the only way to do that is to create new opponents for the current champs. I'm honestly surprised at how much this idea isn't used nowadays, when it worked so well in the last decade.
While both of these guys have undeniable appeal, this match hasn't really captured my imagination. There can be a rematch at Survivor Series and then Strowman can move on to feuding with one of the several main event-level Superstars on Monday Night Raw. Then Monday on Raw I would be Asuka is going to Debut.

This match should feature a WrestleMania, however I figure going about as a co-headliner for No Mercy is additionally a better than average approach to book it. If so, they need to keep it pretty simple and work within Enzo's limitations. It's kind of comical that Alexa - who's by far the smallest one in there, is cast as the villainous heel. She still has time on her side and the support of the WWE Universe, thus justifying putting the strap on the Australian. I could see the merits of that, but I'm not convinced, from what I've seen if she's a good enough worker to warrant that type of push. In any case, there's a lot of intriguing possibilities here. Their respective styles don't seem all that compatible and the storyline leading up to the match hasn't been all that compelling, either. Samson has been entertaining since joining the main roster and he was just one match away from being in No Mercy's Intercontinental Championship match against The Miz.
- A WWE Network Collection on Bobby "The Brain" Heenan has just been released. This match has turned into one of the more anticipated bouts of No Mercy. Condolences to his family.
