This Sunday, WWE presents No Mercy, but you'd hardly be blamed if you thought you were watching SummerSlam -- or even WrestleMania. For some inexplicable reason, WWE has chosen to make this card one of the most stacked of the year, with Brock Lesnar defending the Universal Championship against a hugely pushed Braun Strowman -- and even more shocking, the first ever one-on-one meeting between John Cena and Roman Reigns.
The argument can be made that this booking speaks volumes about the company's ability to plan for the long term, but the fact remains that No Mercy is going to be a very newsworthy show. The fact that it's been four weeks since the last PPV (a lackluster SummerSlam) doesn't hurt, as for a while there it seemed like fans were getting an event every couple of weeks. Making the PPVs feel special may help WWE fight the fall doldrums.
So what can fans expect from the two huge main events and a solid undercard? This article attempts to curate the most prevalent rumors going into No Mercy, ranking them in order from least plausible to most plausible. If you want to be surprised, then beware, but if you want an insight into the unpredictable world of WWE, then proceed.
