SmackDown LIVE put on another respectable Pay-Per-View last night in the shape of No Mercy, but there was one rather large talking point heading into the event, and coming out of the event.
The card for the PPV, and more importantly, the order of the card had the WWE Universe talking ahead of No Mercy, and also in the aftermath of No Mercy.
Just a few hours before the show kicked off, WWE announced that the triple threat main event, consisting of AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, and John Cena for the WWE Championship would actually kick off the show, instead of end it.

After this was announced, people then assumed that The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler would end the show, especially it being a championship vs career match.
The Miz defended his Intercontinental Championship against Ziggler's career, only for the latter to come out victorious and save his job as well as win the belt.
However, that wasn't the final match, Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt was, and after the PPV, general manager Daniel Bryan admitted that they may have made a mistake in terms of the running order.
On their weekly episode 'Talking Smack', Bryan was questioned by his new IC Champion about the running order and the fact he was main eventing the show against The Miz.
Whilst talking about the booking, Bryan admitted that he may have got it wrong, and stated that beforehand, he felt that Orton and Wyatt also deserved the main event spot.
The general manager said: "One of the things I was thinking when Shane made the WWE Championship match the opening match, was the fact the Intercontinental Title match should have been the main event.
"I apologise because I thought Randy [Orton] and Bray [Wyatt] also deserved to be in the main event, but you guys deserved to be in that spot, and we will make adjustments going forward."
