WWE No Mercy 2016 Results: Big Title Change, New Main Event
WWE No Mercy 2016 may not have been the strongest show on paper, but the event ended up delivering in a big way, as far as in-ring action went. We not only got a WWE championship match in the opener, we also got a major title change that could be among the most memorable in years.
With that said, there was an interesting change to the format of the show. WWE chose to have the main event open the show, with AJ Styles defending his title in a triple threat match against John Cena and Dean Ambrose. This led to speculation that Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz would main event the show with their career vs. title match. However, that wasn’t the case either, as the new main event for the show was Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt, which went from being an undercard match to closing the show. WWE also had to shuffle things a bit following the medical issues plaguing Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, who was not medically cleared to compete. This left Alexa Bliss to face Naomi in an impromptu match-up to continue, as the status of the Women’s Championship remained in doubt.
But who were the big winners on tonight’s show? Get the full results for No Mercy 2016 below:
