– WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com where he talks about a wide variety of topics including last night’s WWE No Mercy pay-per-view and more. Here are the following highlights:
“Had no issues with the match order especially considering the US Presidential Debate was going to have such a massive FREE, over the air, audience heads up with No Mercy in arguably a better ‘booked’ pro wrestling storyline than most company’s are featuring these days,” Ross wrote. “Thought that putting the WWE Title bout on first and away from the debate helped protect the title.”
JR also discussed AJ Styles using a chair to win the match, considering he was the most cheered person in the match.
“Not sure that AJ needed to use the chair but so be it,” Ross stated. “Considering that AJ is being positioned as a villain, I understand the use of the chair but IMO the ticket buyers want to cheer Styles and will continue to do so most likely.
“The triple threat match had some stellar moments and the conclusion of the match was creative as the most popular guy in the match, according to the live audience reaction, cheated to win. Loved the work ethic of all three men in this opening salvo.”
“Miz vs Ziggler had the match of the night and arguably could have closed the show in a bigger way than was featured but that’s easy to book after the fact. Who knew that the IC title match would be the career best for both men? Hindsight is 20/20 but congrats to Dolph and Mike for busting their ass, telling a good story and for selling! The IC Title match was the Show Stealer!!”
