There always seems to be yet another WWE news report about one Pay-Per-View event or another, and this Sunday’s No Mercy event is no different. Just a few weeks ago, Raw‘s Pay-Per-View event, Clash of Champions, dominated the news headlines, so it makes sense that No Mercy, the Pay-Per-View event tied to the Tuesday night SmackDown brand, would make all of the WWE news headlines now. So, what can we expect from this Sunday’s event?

First, according to the WWE news report put out by WrestleZone, yet another women’s match has been confirmed for the No Mercy event, as Carmella is confirmed to face off against Nikki Bella. This singles match was just announced yesterday during SmackDown, and will also be featured alongside the fight between Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship. Of the latter fight, wrestling experts predict Becky will retain her title, but Alexa Bliss will still remain a formidable force in the ring. The next time the title will be up for grabs, then, Eva Marie will face off against Becky Lynch, and most likely take home the title.

Meanwhile, according to Heavy, their WWE news reports about the upcoming No Mercy event this weekend show a lot of interesting predictions about the fights. The big tag-team fight to watch, of course, is the fight between The Usos and Heath Slater & Rhyno, the latter of whom are currently holding onto the SmackDown Tag Team Championship title.
While many wrestling commentators — Heavy included — are enjoying the “heel” turn by The Usos (who, like Roman Reigns, are also cousins of The Rock and part of the prestigious Anoa’i family of wrestlers), Heath Slater & Rhyno’s rise to the top is one that’s been most enjoyed by the fans. And how could you not root for Heath Slater & Rhyno, really? In each episode of Talking Smack, their brotherly love becomes evident, and their fighting style is bar none in the ring.
That said, Jimmy and Jey are expected to keep the duo on their toes, as their fighting style tends to seriously injure their opponents. And though, ultimately, Heath Slater & Rhyno are predicted to win their fight against The Usos, expect The Usos to demonstrate why they’re still a force to reckon with.

Finally, of course, is the WWE news about the No Mercy main event brought to us by Wrestling, Inc. The main event features Bray Wyatt facing off against Randy Orton, and to say it’s a bit anti-climatic for Orton is an understatement. Orton has been floundering in a bit of limbo since his injury at the hands of Brock Lesnar during SummerSlam, and it seems as though this fight against Bray Wyatt is meant to help him gain his bearings again. Still, fans of The Viper can’t help but notice how this fight is nothing if not a downgrade for him — Wyatt has become a bit of a joke in terms of his wrestling style such as declaring himself a god even though he seems to have an uncanny ability to lose every match he’s in — and he’s no longer the main attraction that he used to be.
This isn’t to say, of course, that this fight isn’t exactly what’s needed for both sides. Remember, this fight was originally supposed to happen on September 11th during the Backlash event. But because Orton wasn’t medically cleared to fight, the WWE came up with the hokey storyline about Wyatt “injuring” Orton backstage, forcing the fight to be moved to the No Mercy event. But even though it’s pretty obvious that Randy Orton will emerge the victor of this fight, it will still be nothing if not entertaining to watch.
