Back to the dual main events, and I'm not sure where to start, so I'll go with Cena-Reigns, just because there's no formal championship on the line there. Reigns should be set for a title shot after beating John Cena, but that match appears to be clearly being held back until WrestleMania 34 next April in New Orleans. They are competing for the WWE Universal title.
Results: Jordan stopped an attacking Bo Dallas, but while the ref was yelling at Dallas to get out of the ring, Curtis Axel hit a cheapshot and allowed Miz to hit the Skull-Crushing Finale. I can see WWE moving towards a program with her and Alexa for the title. Wyatt showed that he was not done with Balor by eliminating him from a #1 Contender's Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal (which Wyatt wasn't a part of).
At the TLC Pay-Per-View (Raw's next event, taking place on October 22), Asuka will make her long-awaited main roster debut. Wyatt then challenged Balor for a match at WWE No Mercy. Jordan's post-match promo was a fine example of why he is struggling to get over though, it was terribly scripted and went down like a lead balloon.
Arguably bout of the night saw Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins retain the Tag Team Championships against Sheamus & Cesaro. After the match Reigns and Cena shook hands, showing that Cena finally acknowledged Reigns' position as the Top Dog.
It is a good story.
As Cena left the ring the fans chanted "thank you Cena" then he made his way up the ramp then turned to the crowd one last time before leaving. It just needs to be booked correctly. All three were among the night's biggest winners, and now, the attention returns to their seemingly inevitable reunion.
Going into No Mercy, many fans noted that the card seemed Wrestlemania-worthy. Cena walked out of the ring, only for Reigns to then chase him and throw him back in the ring. As for Roman, does he immediately move into the Universal Title picture?
While the "Monster Among Men" controlled the majority of the match-up, Lesnar kept surviving, and eventually managed to make a dent in Strowman's armor with an extended series of massive German suplexes.
The manner of the loss was particularly concerning. Lesnar was being laid to waste but he got the opening with a Kimora lock on Strowman for a long time.
Strowman countered with a couple of running powerslams, but he was favoring the arm that was locked into the kimura and was unable to fully capitalize.
Lesnar, with the last ounce of strength available to him, hoisted Strowman up for an F-5, almost drove The Monster Among Men through the canvas and secured the three-count that extended his Universal Championship reign. Finn, at least, can benefit from getting a win over Wyatt.
If you watch WWE, you will know that these two are going to square off this Sunday at the No Mercy PPV.
