Here’s our final thoughts on SmackDown Live’s WWE No Mercy 2016!


The Hype Bros (Mojo Rawley and Zack Ryder) and American Alpha (Chad Gable and Jason Jordan) vs. The Ascension (Konnor and Viktor) and The Vaudevillains (Aiden English and Simon Gotch) (8-Man Tag Team Match)

Reactions: Passable was all this Kickoff Match ended up being. At least we’re fans of al four teams involved (yes, even The Ascension). Mojo Rawley’s wild antics were kind of amusing, plus American Alpha pulled out their usual array of exciting suplexes. An extra point goes to this match for English’s singing taunts to Ryder while he held in a sleeper hold. It would have been better for the heels to win and at least give them something to help build them back up into serious competitors. But it just wasn’t meant to be. The good guys won after a quick and painless 8-Man Tag Team Match.

Reactions: AJ IS STILL THE FACE THAT RUNS THE PLACE! And he managed to keep the title around his waist in this fun opener for SmackDown Live’ biggest prize. There were several moments where we thought his reign was coming a short close. Cena used a German Suplex on his opponents at the same time in an exciting moment, but Styles pulled out all his best moves to down both men. His Double DDT on both Ambrose and Cena was jaw dropping. When a Triple Threat Match is done right, nothing can truly top it. This match was a clear example of that fact. Styles tap-out in the middle of this match made us believe the match was truly over, but it thankfully kept going. Ambrose was his usual wild self and Cena pulled out all the stops, which made us and the crowd more invested as everything wore on. The simple ending where Styles destroyed Cena with a chair was sort of a letdown, but it didn’t bring down the quality of this bout too much. Styles retained his title in a great PPV opener.

Reactions: We’re actually invested in this whole Nikki and Carmella lady beef. Since it’s a whole new woman squaring off with a WWE veteran, it’s a fresh feud that’s actually made us care. This match was nothing super amazing mind you, but it wasn’t offensive whatsoever. Carmella has mastered her new heelish ways, which was on full display here as she used all her offense to work on Nikki’s neck. Carmella’s moonwalk is quite special, by the way. Nikki looked good out there as she threw out her usual comeback maneuvers. Carmella looked really good here too, but she ultimately took the L. This was OK. Not amazing, but just fine.
