YourSitch Predictions: No Mercy 2016

After Backlash was a huge success, No Mercy will be asked to follow up as Smackdown’s second pay-per-view. The crowd in Sacramento, California will have a deeper card than that of Backlash so look for some big moments.

All eyes will mostly be on the two biggest matches. The first, of course, will be AJ Styles’s first title defense at a PPV against Dean Ambrose and John Cena in what should be a heck of a match. The other match fans will be tuning in for is the Title vs. Career match between The Miz and Dolph Ziggler.

Kyle Boris and Daisy Rivers are here to break down those two matches along with the rest of the card as they make their predictions on how the card will go down.

Baron Corbin vs. Jack Swagger

Kyle Boris: The feud between these two big men started last week when Swagger made Corbin “tap out” even though Corbin was just crawling to the ropes. I might be able to get invested in a feud between these two men, but I’m not sure I’m quite ready. Jack seems to have gotten his Swagger back since his move to Smackdown, but I think Corbin gets the victory to make up for his loss last time out.

Match Prediction: Corbin by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: Corbin once again appears to tap out, but this time the ref calls it correctly.

Daisy Rivers: This isn’t really a match I am interested in watching, but the outcome could be. Both of these wrestlers really aren’t a ‘name’ on the roster, yet. I see what Daniel Bryan is trying to do here. He’s trying to bring back Swagger, while bringing up Corbin. After the controversial match between the two, I think Swagger will win this one fair and square with his Patriot Lock.

Match Prediction: Swagger by submission

Bonus Prediction: Swagger brings out the American flag with him

 

Carmella vs. Nikki Bella

KB: Since her debut at the brand split, Carmella has come into her own and has used most of her time on the roster attempting to make Nikki’s life a living hell by frequently attacking her. However, The Princess of Staten Island isn’t quite on Nikki’s level in terms of wrestling just yet, so I think Nikki picks up the win rather easily.

Match Prediction: Nikki Bella by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: Nikki calls out the champion after the match

 

DR: Carmella is one of my faves despite her recent heel turn. I’ve started to enjoy the story that’s been built up between her and Nikki Bella. That being said, Nikki has become an awesome wrestler and I think she walks away victorious after breaking out a new finishing move. 

Match Prediction: Nikki Bella by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: Carmella attempts to cheat by using a weapon or distracting the referee.
 

Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt

KB: I really have high hopes for this contest. These two have been putting out some great promos over the past couple of weeks on Tuesday nights and hopefully they’re able to translate that into a stellar match. As for the result, a win for either man might be able to put them next in line to face the Smackdown champ.

Match Prediction: Wyatt by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: Wyatt attacks Orton on his way to the ring.

DR: The buildup for this match has been fun, mainly because Bray Wyatt is awesome. I love all the creepiness and suspense with the promos on SmackDown Live. However, I can’t see The Viper losing this match. He needs a bounce-back match after his loss to Brock Lesnar and this is it. That being said, Bray Wyatt needs to get his chance soon because he’s still one of the more intriguing characters on SmackDown.

Match Prediction: Orton by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: Orton will lose Wyatt for a moment when he disappears
 

Smackdown Tag Team Title Match: Heath Slater & Rhyno(c) vs. The Usos

KB: The Usos have turned into the biggest heels on Tuesday nights and the crowd will surely be against them as they attempt to take the belts from fan favorites, Heath Slater and Rhyno. As a fan, I’m hoping the Slater-Rhyno train keeps rolling on so we get more fun from the odd couple.

Match Prediction: Slater & Rhyno by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: American Alpha helps the champs retain their titles

DR: The Usos are probably the better team in this match, but Heath Slater and Rhyno are just better characters and are the team the people want to see. I think they’ll stay champions because it’s so strange that it works and everyone loves it.

Match Prediction: Slater & Rhyno by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: Heath Slater mentions his kids at some point
 

Smackdown Women’s Title Match: Becky Lynch(c) vs. Alexa Bliss

KB: Becky Lynch was crowned Smackdown’s first women’s champion at Backlash and now she has her first title defense. She should be able to take care of Bliss and begin a long reign as champion.

Match Prediction: Becky Lynch by submission

Bonus Prediction: Alexa Bliss focuses on Becky’s arm in her attacks in an attempt to take the Dis-Arm-Her out of play

DR: It’s a little upsetting how weak the women’s roster is on SmackDown in comparison to Raw. I haven’t seen much of Alexa Bliss, but her character can be annoying and fragile. Becky will win an easy one with her finisher, the Dis-Arm-Her, unless she is hurt and is unable to compete.

Match Prediction: Becky Lynch by submission

Bonus Prediction: Alexa Bliss starts crying and throws a tantrum after her loss
 

Career vs. Title Match: The Miz(c) vs. Dolph Ziggler

KB: Boy, I don’t even want to predict this match. I just want to watch and enjoy because that’s how good both wrestlers have done at getting the fans invested in their feud. On one hand, we might be seeing the end of the Miz’s reign as Intercontinental champion and on the other hand, this could be Dolph’s last match in the WWE. It really could go either way in a match that will have plenty of near falls to have the fans on the edge of their seats.

Match Prediction: Dolph Ziggler by pinfal

Bonus Prediction: The two men shake hands after the match

DR:  Intercontinental Title matches went 0 to 100… real quick. It was always assumed that The Miz would just pick up the win in a boring match, but ever since Backlash these two have made the feud personal. This whole thing with Dolph Ziggler quitting if he loses makes it so interesting. I think this is the chance Dolph has been waiting for and I think he’ll finally make it happen!

Match Prediction: Dolph Ziggler by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: The Miz gets desperate and “accidentally” knocks out the ref
 

WWE World Title Match: AJ Styles(c) vs. Dean Ambrose vs. John Cena

KB: This title match has the three biggest stars on Smackdown in one match and hopefully it will not disappoint. John Cena is chasing history looking to tie Ric Flair’s record while Dean Ambrose attempts to take back his title. The only problem for these two great superstars is that AJ Styles stands in their way. The Phenomenal One is on another level right now and I think he walks away STILL WWE World Champion.

Match Prediction: Styles by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: Styles does a double Phenomenal Forearm to Ambrose and Cena

DR: Adding John Cena to this match makes it interesting, but again I feel like the WWE is lacking in building up the storylines into these PPVs. It feels like they just work PPV to PPV without creating a story. Maybe it’s because there are more events that it’s causing the quality to go down. ANYWAY, AJ Styles will make Cena and Ambrose look good thus making him Phenomenal and walking away as the face that runs the place.

Match Prediction: Styles by pinfall

Bonus Prediction: Ambrose brings out the chainsaw, but won’t use it.

One thought on “YourSitch Predictions: No Mercy 2016”

  1. I expect an appearance by American Alpha to help Slater and Rhyno win.

    The only other thing I could say about this PPV is Ziggler cannot lose
