What started at Backlash will continue to roar at the 2016 No Mercy PPV. Last night's PPV planted the seeds for superstars such as Dean Ambrose, Nikki Bella, and Randy Orton. Those superstars want one thing, and that is revenge. One wrestler didn't have a match, while the other two names I mentioned lost in their respective matches. What will happen come four weeks time? Let's give you an early indication for No Mercy.
Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton: The match that was supposed to happen last night didn't happen. PWInsider reported that Orton wasn't cleared after his match with Brock Lesnar. WWE was confident that he was going to be cleared. WWE had a plan where Wyatt attacked Orton before the match thus having Kane become his replacement, and The Big Red Monster coming out victorious thanks to some shenanigans by Orton. The Eater of World will have some revenge in store. But with the next PPV in four weeks, The Viper will finally have his battle with Wyatt.
Becky Lynch (C) vs. Alexa Bliss (SmackDown Women's Championship): Becky Lynch made history by becoming the SmackDown Women's Champion. The Lass Kicker will have some targets gunning for her, but the first target will be Harley Bliss (oops, I meant Alexa Bliss). Lynch has already had a feud with Natalya. To make this New Era entertaining, a new face has to gun for that title. Even though Bliss was the first women's wrestler to be eliminated, she lobbied on the pre-show that she's a rising star.
Carmella vs. Nikki Bella: Since I talked about the first women's feud on SmackDown, here's another feud that's burning that midnight oil. These two have feuded since SummerSlam, and the feud got boiling last night in the Six-Pack Challenge. Carmella pinned Nikki, thus eliminating her. However, Nikki rocked her. It's a clear indication that WWE wants to continue this feud. Look for some brawls and attacks on SmackDown Live. This feud will get crazier and crazier by each episode.
The Usos vs. American Alpha: American Alpha got screwed by The Usos on SmackDown after The Usos took them out after they lost in the Tag Team Title Tournament. The Usos needed this heel turn. Once American Alpha comes back, American Alpha will get that revenge. This feud will put a hold on American Alpha's quest to become tag team champions, which leaves the door open to new challengers in the tag team division.
AJ Styles (C) vs. Dean Ambrose vs. John Cena (WWE World Heavyweight Championship): John Cena, the biggest name in the WWE, was a no-show last night. Where was Cena? Cena was a part of an international house show in Asia. I have a feeling we might see Cena at No Mercy. It's tough to see a healthy miss a second straight PPV. When Cena returns, he will gun for the guy that defeated him at SummerSlam in AJ Styles. Meanwhile, AJ went on to defeat Dean Ambrose to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. The Lunatic Fringe will get his rematch clause. But Cena will get involved in this feud in one way. His name was mentioned during the fight last night, which indicates that the plants are seeding for a Triple Threat match. Styles can say that he's the face that runs the place. But Cena is going to have enough of it. Cena's goal is to get some revenge on AJ, then set up another five-star match shortly. Styles will indeed be the main target right out of the gate.
