WWE's No Mercy card is really starting to take shape with two major championship matches added to proceedings on Monday evening.
No Mercy is looking set to be quite the pay-per-view. First, WWE announced that Brock Lesnar will have to defend his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman at the event. Then, last week, the WrestleMania main event worthy match of John Cena versus Roman Reigns was added to the card. Then this past Monday, WWE filled the card up a little more by throwing in a couple of title matches.
First up, we have a Raw Tag Team Championship rematch. At SummerSlam, the newly reformed Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins defeated Sheamus and Cesaro and took their titles in the process. At No Mercy, the European pairing will get the chance for revenge, and to win those belts back. The former champs picked up an easy win over Heath Slater and Rhyno on Monday night while the current champions watched on. They'll have a much taller order to pick up the W at No Mercy.
The second title match added to the card was just another rematch at first between Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss, but became so much more than that following Raw this week. Nia Jax and Emma were given the chance to team up and win their way into the No Mercy match by beating the two women already in it, and that they did. Jax landed a leg drop and Emma picked up the scraps and the win. So it'll be Sasha versus Alexa versus Emma versus Nia for the Raw Women's Championship at No Mercy.
These two new matches added to the No Mercy card are hardly as big as the two blockbuster bouts already taking place, but let's be honest, not every match of the night can be WrestleMania worthy. There's a tag title match to get out of the way, so why not save it for No Mercy? Plus adding Emma and Jax to the women's title scene will add a fresh angle to the conflict between Bliss and The Boss.
WWE has really been in the business of flip flopping some of its titles as of late. Hopefully, for these two bouts, they'll show some restraint and keep them on the current champions. Rollins and Ambrose have a lot left to give as champions, and there is a great story to be told between Alexa and Nia Jax with the Women's Championship as the centerpiece.
