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; Sheamus 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 rarest 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?
The Three Count:
Danielle put over Dean and Seth's continued romance reparations.
Lindsey put over the continued work of the 205 Live team.
Hal put over Mega Ran and his music for Randy Savage.

Goodness gracious, we’re really only a few days away from Great Balls of Fire!
And we’ve really solid feuds to look forward to ahead of the damnedest named PPV of the year: Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe, Enzo vs. Big Cass.
What are our hopes? We can’t wait for you to find out!
Plus: New Japan Pro Wrestling held it’s first-ever show in the United States. Chances are it will never be able to truly challenge the WWE, but what do we want from the world’s second biggest wrestling company as they expand stateside?
Is WWE going too far with its latest treatment of things like race and nationalism? Sure, the “evil foreigner” is a wrestling staple and Jinder Mahal and Rusev might not have seen the level of success they’ve currently attained without it. But sure it’s time to evolve it in some way shape or form, right?
