No Mercy is live this Sunday with a card more Wrestlemania worthy than most Wrestlemanias are. With two marquee matches destined to be better than the last few Wrestlemania main events combined, we should hopefully be in for a treat. Will Braun Strowman win the Universal Championship and defeat the Beast Incarnate, Brrrrrrrock Lesnar once and for all? And who will reign supreme, Roman Reigns or John Cena?
Here are five things WWE got right this week and five they got wrong.
5. WRONG - No Emma
This Sunday at No Mercy, five women meet in a Fatal Five Way for the Raw Women's Championship. So isn't it a little weird how every woman except Emma was featured on the show? As if Emma's career hasn't been a total joke already (not by her doing).
5. RIGHT - Charlotte's Back
Charlotte returned, delivering fantastic news about her father, as well as a proper ass whooping to the SmackDown Live Women's Division in the main event of the show. That double moonsault to Naomi and Tamina was what one friend described as "one of the best moonsaults [he] had ever seen". And although we're a bit sad to see Becky Lynch come up short once again, Charlotte is just as good of a choice to face Natalya at Hell In A Cell.
We love Natalya, but WWE needs to give her some better material.
4. WRONG - Cruiserweight Matches Too Short
Gran Metalik was impressive against Neville this week for all two minutes the match was given. Why are all the cruiserweights who aren't Neville (and we guess Enzo Amore) made to look so utterly useless in comparison? That isn't how you build a division, and the reason for the low ratings of 205 Live is becoming more and more apparent.
4. RIGHT - Kevin Owens
Kevin Owens is the ultimate villain. Tough, funny, and diabolical. To explain why he did what he did to Mr. McMahon last week, Owens blamed everything on Shane, saying had he not interfered with his matches so much, the attack would have never happened.
Once Shinsuke Nakamura defeats Jinder Mahal for the title (it will happen, right?), it would be a shame if Kevin Owens isn't the next in line for a title shot.
3. WRONG - More Of The Same From Dolph Ziggler
Last week, Dolph Ziggler made our list of wrongs. This week, he does once again because he did the exact same thing this week. This time, however, he pretended to be Shawn Michaels, which is ironic, because just like we said last week.
Hasn't he been trying to be Shawn Michaels his entire career?
3. RIGHT - Jason Jordan
The WWE Universe seems to be taking a liking to Jason Jordan again and rightfully so. He's had an outstanding few weeks. After some top notch performances with Roman Reigns and John Cena, he won the Six Pack Challenge Main Event this week, and this Sunday, he and The Miz face off for the Intercontinental Championship.
2. WRONG - The Entire Wyatt Vs. Finn Balor Storyline
When a storyline works backward, you get this.
At No Mercy, Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor wrestle once more. This time, the match will be Man vs. Man. Meaning Finn Balor won't be in demon form. Apparently, Balor thinks the man is stronger than the demon since theoretically, the man created the demon. Which in theory, this totally makes sense if we hadn't already seen Balor lose to Wyatt before while in man form. The sooner this feud is over, the better.
2. RIGHT - Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns finally got the best of John Cena this week, but that's probably because Cena wasn't there to offer a rebuttal, but whatever. We'll take it.
Reigns reminded us what Cena said about The Rock five years ago. When The Rock left for Hollywood and became a part-time wrestler, Cena called him out for it. And now, Cena's doing the exact same thing and Reigns is calling him out for it. Hypocrisy is never a good trait to have, is it, John? Oh and that jab about Alex Riley? Ouch.
1. WRONG - "That's Too Far"
Last week, Jinder Mahal's racist rant against Shinsuke Nakamura seemed to prove a purpose. They were to get the audience to laugh (which sadly, some of the audience did), to prove that the WWE Universe is racist not just against him, but to all foreigners. This time, Jinder Mahal just made racists comments just to be racist, while his lackeys rolled on the floor laughing looking like sad pathetic idiots.
The fact the audience chanted "that's too far" says enough. Enough with the racism. And better yet, enough with Jinder Mahal as the WWE Champion. We hate to say this, but SmackDown would be in a much better place had Randy Orton stayed WWE Champion.
1. RIGHT - Braun Strowman
Sure, Braun Strowman was pretty impressive in his battle of words against Brock Lesnar, but what was even more impressive was when he decided to brutally attack Enzo Amore for literally no reason other than to give the fans what they want. Braun Strowman is the badass WWE needs right now, and it's time WWE takes the belt off Lesnar.
Until next week!
