With SummerSlam in the rear-view mirror, the WWE superstars of Monday Night RAW are setting their sights on the barbaric event known as No Mercy. Broadcasting live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, the thirteenth installment of the October event will undoubtedly provide us with many awe-inspiring moments. But if you can't watch the event this year, fear not, because we will be here to provide you with live updates of all the action throughout the night.
While there are many highly-anticipated matches coming up at WWE #NoMercy, none are as huge as the two major contests that will serve as the dual main event. Brock Lesnar has been an unstoppable Champion, but he hasn't been able to overcome Braun Strowman. The giant has conquered Roman Reigns and Big Show and now wants the Universal Championship. And after manhandling the Beast at #SummerSlam, it's looking like he may be destined to win gold at the upcoming PPV.
Roman Reigns has been running his mouth since he defeated the Undertaker at #WrestleMania, and now the veteran John Cena looks to teach the Big Dog a lesson. With rumors of an upcoming Cena absence and even the possible return of the Phenom himself, the Undertaker, you can bet all eyes will be on this match.
As two monsters battle do for the first time, other epic grudges will reach their boiling points. All of these matches will undoubtedly bring different things to the table, but we should all expect them one major similarity from each of them: no mercy.
