5 biggest surprises from WWE No Mercy 2017
For the past month, WWE's No Mercy has been billed as having a card worthy of WrestleMania. That was at least partly true with Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman on the card as well as something of a dream match between Roman Reigns and John Cena also on the marquee.
Well, the event has been and gone and it was actually a pretty outstanding night of pro wrestling. Of the seven matches featured on the main card, it would be fair to say that at least five of them delivered and added to the success of the night as a whole.
That No Mercy lived up to the hype is quite surprising in itself, but there were a litany of other surprises littered throughout the evening. Here are the five most surprising things coming out of No Mercy.
#5 Enzo Amore is the Cruiserweight Champion
Enzo Amore and Neville were given the unenviable position of the buffer match between Brock vs Braun and Cena vs Reigns. This was probably a poor choice on WWE's part as the crowd had just been excited by an incredible match between the Big Dog and the Leader of the Cenation.
They made the best of what they were given though, and the end result of this bout was probably the most shocking of the night. Neville warned Enzo that his dirty tactics wouldn't work at No Mercy, but The King was wrong.
Amore grabbed the title while the match was still going on, and when the referee took it from him and removed it from the ring, Muscles Marinara took advantage of the opening, delivering a low blow to the now former champ. It debilitated Neville enough for Enzo to cover him and we now have a new, somewhat unorthodox Cruiserweight Champion.
