WWE pay-per-views are where rivalries erupt or come to a head. While the current pay-per-view schedule remains unchanged, there are a few vintage shows that fans will remember. During the Attitude and Ruthless Aggression Eras, some of these shared great moments including new faces, championship victories, and famous Hell in a Cell fights.

On this pay-per-view, Kurt Angle won the WWE Championship for the first time in his career. WWE proved that the show could still deliver when it returned in 2016 and 2017. Everything was fair game with stacked cards and match stipulations.
Roman Reigns defeated John Cena in the most recent WWE No Mercy, while Brock Lesnar defended his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman. The retro pay-per-view was so momentous that it was commemorated in one of WWE’s renowned video games.
A match involving the WWE Championship was previously an opening match in 2016, according to No Mercy’s history. In a triple threat match, AJ Styles successfully defended his championship against John Cena and Dean Ambrose.
At No Mercy, Brock Lesnar had a unique statistic. Lesnar has a 3-0 win-loss record. Lesnar would be involved in championship matches for every No Mercy he was a part of, whether it was for the WWE or the Universal Championship.
From 2002 to 2003, Lesnar successfully defended the WWE Championship against The Undertaker in back-to-back No Mercy matches in a Hell in a Cell and a Biker Chain Match. At No Mercy 2017, Lesnar defended his Universal Championship against Strowman.

It’s possible that No Mercy will return in October. WWE might use the night as a warm-up for the Survivor Series, one of the most important pay-per-views of the year. Now since the draft is held in the second half of the year, the show may feature additional rivalry bouts.
