Smackdown Live has been arguably the best wrestling show in the world from top to bottom. Not only is the storytelling excellent, but each rivalry means something on their programming. Starting at the bottom, Jack Swagger is currently in a program with Baron Corbin. They had a match against each other at No Mercy Sunday evening and did an admirable job at keeping the WWE Universe in tune to the show. Not many fans care about those WWE stars, but at least they are getting a chance to show what they can do.
The Usos, who re-invented themselves, are doing great on the blue brand. Heath Slater and Rhyno, aka the Beauty and the Manbeast, defended their championship against Jimmy and Jey. Slater and Rhyno picked up the victory, but the feud is far from over. With the Usos taking out each tag-team they come across, they have more legitimacy than ever in the tag-team division. Give major credit to WWE officials for allowing the former tag champs the ability to be creative.
Of course, the Miz and Dolph Ziggler put on the best match at No Mercy and tore the house down. Each man has been at their best since SummerSlam and gave themselves more legitimacy than ever before. Miz lost his Intercontinental belt to Ziggler at No Mercy. Coming up at Smackdown Live, Ziggler will respond to the WWE Universe in his first appearance since winning it. On top of it all, a mid-card belt is finally relevant.
The main event on Smackdown Live speaks for itself. Dean Ambrose, John Cena, and AJ Styles leave the fans wanting more every time they step foot outside the curtain. Styles retains his championship belt. Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton are doing great things and that leaves the ladies. Nikki Bella and Carmella had a good match at No Mercy. Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss is the intriguing situation. Since Lynch couldn’t compete on Sunday, Bliss was left out to dry and ended up facing Naomi.
That said, where does this leave the Smackdown Women’s title? According to SEScoops, Becky Lynch will defend her championship on the November 8 edition of Smackdown Live.
“Becky will not be stripped of the SmackDown women’s championship and Alexa Bliss will get her title shot at the November 8th SmackDown event from Glasgow, Scotland. The rematch booked for a month away indicates Becky could be out for several weeks, but there were also rumblings over the weekend that she’d appear on the PPV in a non-wrestling capacity.”
For those that didn’t see what announcement by the WWE, that’s because Becky Lynch was the first one to say she wasn’t going to appear at No Mercy. On her Twitter account, Lynch took a picture of herself at a hospital with an important update.
Thank you all for the thoughts. I promise I’ll do everything I can to get back ASAP and defend my title… I’m watching closely tonight pic.twitter.com/SWT8QLK9r0

She is such a vital piece to the Smackdown Live roster and one of their best babyfaces. Lynch is actually a true babyface and could continue to make a huge impact in the best way. In an earlier report by the Inquisitr, Lynch talked about the pressure that she is under, being the Smackdown Women’s champion.
There’s no doubt the Irish-born wrestler wanted to be at WWE No Mercy. However, a non-wrestling injury took place and she will be out for a few weeks. Bliss will still be waiting for her title shot and so may Naomi. A triple threat match at the next Smackdown PPV would be great for all performers as well.
