Two-thirds of WWE’s No Mercy was really great and one-third of it… was just fine!
But there’s plenty of stuff to break down all over the show including! Braun Strowman lost to Brock Lesnar. How badly did losing so decisively hurt the character of Strowman?
Plus, the status of Roman Reigns as “The Guy,” after beating John Cena; Shaemus and the Thwith Thuperman Thetharo losing their match (and teeth); Nia Jax being an absolute beast in her 5-way match; and a bunch more.
Enzo defeated Neville for the Cruiserweight Championship on Sunday. Afterwards, they were part of one of the most rare and difficult to achieve tactics for booking: The double-turn, when a babyface and heel each switch roles by the end of the match. How has this been used successfully in the past? And will it be followed up well in this instance?
