WWE No Mercy: Roman Reigns overcomes John Cena, Brock Lesnar wins

It is tempting to see the post-match handshake and arm raise by Cena as just another example of the WWE manufacturing Reigns a career built exclusively for a highlight package, but the moment was at least consistent with the way Cena has conducted himself for the majority of his time in the WWE: bringing fire in the build-up, going hard in the ring and ultimately giving respect where it is earnt afterwards. Guests to include a defeated John Cena, a retaining Alexa Bliss, and new WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore. The two heavy hitters squared off in what was billed as a "Wrestlemania-size" bout - the only similarities it ended up sharing was in length, as the former UFC champ got his business done in short order. "The Monster Among Men" Braun Strowman will challenge "The Beast Incarnate" Brock Lesnar for the WWE Univeral Championship.

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.

The most disappointing aspect of the match was how easy Braun went down in the end. Look to see Bliss pick her spot, take advantage of the ideal situation and have her stock rise even more. That's a major thing for me to consider. The match was bad. And Enzo won with a low blow and a roll-up when the ref's back was turned.

-Cena calls the night emotional and he starts to break down a little as he thinks of winning his first World Title here, and coming full circle to tonight.

Alexa Bliss retained her WWE "Raw" Women's Championship via pinfall over Bayley in a Fatal 5-Way match. Bonus prediction - The WWE decides to finally try to turn one of these guys full-tilt heel, but that person winds up getting cheered like insane because they are beating on the other person the crowd hates. Cena said, "No, for years everybody said they couldn't see me but no, I just think my role is different". We have so many guys who have so many chances I just don't get it. Get all the fallout from WWE No Mercy with hosts Renee Young and Jerry "The King" Lawler. The fans and commentators were acting like he was either dying or retiring. As for Roman, does he immediately move into the Universal Title picture?

If you want the real story about the last time pro wrestling caused Reigns to shed a tear, you need to go back to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), the precursor developmental territory for what became NXT.

Cena looked confused, then they both stood up and Reigns hit Cena with a Superman Punch then followed up with a spear for the win. If anything, the boos got even louder.

Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose retained their WWE "Raw" tag team titles in an epic battle against Sheamus and Cesaro.

The ending was well executed too, with Sheamus accidentally kicking Cesaro, leading to Ambrose hitting the dirty deeds on Sheamus for the win. And, then there were Anderson and Gallows.
