Welcome to our live coverage of WWE No Mercy. The Kickoff show is now underway on the WWE Network, among other streaming platforms, with host Renee Young alongside Booker T, Jerry Lawler and Lita on the pre-show panel.

After an introduction from the ring announcer that was very inside baseball, Curt Hawkins strolled to the ring to cut a short promo. He returns to the ring this Tuesday on Smackdown.

Alexa Bliss was backstage demanding Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan award her the Smackdown women's title since Becky Lynch is injured. Instead, Bryan said she'd get a title shot on 11/8 in Glasgow, Scotland. Alexa will also have a match later on tonight against an unnamed opponent.

Tom Phillips is backstage hosting a live social media Q&A with The Usos. They're in full heel mode. Tom encouraged the use of hashtags.

Nikki Bella joined the panel to talk about her feelings concerning her match later on. Lawler flirted with her.

AMERICAN ALPHA & HYPE BROS VS. THE ASCENSION & THE VAUDEVILLIANS

Jason Jordan pinned Aiden English after Grand Amplitude in a fast-paced opener that delighted the crowd. American Alpha really shined here. 

AJ STYLES VS. JOHN CENA VS. DEAN AMBROSE FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP

Tremendous match with Styles retaining the title after hitting Cena with a chair and pinning him. What started as a big melee conitinued as such from there. Lots and lots of near falls. Cena squared off with Styles. Later, Styles squared off with Ambrose. All three kept trading near falls. The pacing was incredibly fast. Rope breaks were invalid, as it was no DQ, so the third man had to break up submissions. The action was wild with some unbelievable highspots. For a false finish, Styles tapped out while both Cena and Ambrose simultaneously applied submission holds. The referee ruled the match would continue. They set the bar incredibly high on trying to follow this.

NIKKI BELLA VS. CARMELLA

Nikki pinned Carmella after using the Rack Attack 2.0, her newest finisher. Carmella worked over Nikki's neck to shine her up for a comeback. After Nikki fired up, Carmella cut her off. Nikki twice escaped the Code of Silence leglock submission hold before hitting her own finisher.

Backstage, The Miz cut a promo on Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan, saying that by making the match they are responsible for the end of Dolph Ziggler's career.

HEATH SLATER & RHYNO VS. THE USOS FOR THE SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM TITLES

Rhyno scored the deciding pinfall to retain the titles. Usos briefly worked over Heath before singling out Rhyno to get heat on him. Heath ran wild off a hot tag until he got cut off. Usos tried to take out Heath's knee, and an Uso applied a tequila sunrise. Rhyno made the save and hit a gore for the finish.

Bray Wyatt sat in his rocking chair for a creepy promo where he spoke in tongues. The announcers feared for Randy Orton.

JACK SWAGGER VS. BARON CORBIN

Corbin won via pinfall after executing End of Days.

THE MIZ VS. DOLPH ZIGGLER FOR THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP WITH ZIGGLER'S CAREER AT STAKE

Ziggler pinned Miz to win the IC title in a heated match. The early portion of the match saw Miz working over Dolph with him fighting from underneath. Miz started mocking Daniel Bryan, giving Dolph a hope spot. They traded near falls with Miz cheating by holding the ropes and grabbing tights. Miz started working a knee and they traded some more near falls, then Miz eventually applied the figure four leglock. Miz exposed a turnbuckle, removing one of the pads. Dolph hit the buckle but still kicked out, and he kept kicking out until he hit a zig-zag for a near fall. Even more near falls and Dolph applied a sleeper. Maryse tried using a spray can to blind Dolph, but Dolph got his foot on the ropes when Miz went for a cover. Spirit Squad members did a run to eat a superkick from Dolph. Miz hit the Skull Crushing Finale but Dolph kicked out. As the referee went to eject Spirit Squad, Dolph delivered a superkick for the finish. 

Seen looking into a mirror, Randy Orton contemplated in his dressing room.

Alexa Bliss cut a promo in the ring, throwing shade at Becky Lynch. The entrance of Naomi interrupted the ranting.

ALEXA BLISS VS. NAOMI 

Naomi pinned Alexa out of nowhere with a roll-up. Alexa threw a tantrum. With a win over the current number one contender, this sets up a rematch.

RANDY ORTON VS. BRAY WYATT

Wyatt won after Luke Harper made a suprise return. In this heated grudge match, they started with a basic collar and elbow lockup. They grappled in the ring before a brawl erupted moments later on the outside. Wyatt began to pummel Orton, methodically working him over. Wyatt missed a senton off the top and Orton fired up. Great counters, near falls and exchanges as they went back-and-forth. At ringside, Orton rolled out of the way on an attempted senton and Wyatt crashed into the steps. Back in the ring, Orton hit a drapping DDT and slithered into place to set up the finish. Then the lights went dark. Luke Harper appeared in the ring. A distracted Orton walked into Sister Abigail and Wyatt pinned him.
