After a long gap of eight years, WWE is set to bring back No Mercy as a brand specific pay-per-view of SmackDown. Monday Night Raw has had their fair share of limelight thanks to Clash of Champions a couple of weeks back and this would be the platform for the blue brand to deliver before Survivor Series arrives.
The pay-per-view will be headlined by a triple threat match between Dean Ambrose, John Cena and AJ Styles for the WWE championship, with Cena’s pursuit of the Ric Flair’s record being the main subplot. While this is the biggest draw of the pay-per-view, the career vs. title match between Dolph Ziggler and The Miz is equally compelling. With the show almost here, check out the complete match card analysis and predictions.
Jack Swagger vs. Baron Corbin
The latest addition to the No Mercy card, Jack Swagger vs. Baron Corbin is an important match for both the superstars. Swagger just came to SmackDown after his forgettable run on Monday Night Raw, whereas Corbin has been trying to come up with a credible feud in the SmackDown mid card.
A hard-hitting match could be expected due to the physical style of these two. The result could go either way, but Swagger is likely to be protected. As WWE would also prefer to keep Corbin protected, a win for him could be on the books, but it would be a tainted win so that Swagger also gets an excuse to push forward the feud.
Prediction: Baron Corbin wins
