The main event of last night's (Sun. September 24, 2017) WWE No Mercy pay-per-view (PPV) didn't exactly live up to expectations, and Los Angeles fans let everyone know it.
In the main event of the PPV WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar defended his title against "The Monster Among Men" Braun Strowman. Since breaking away from The Wyatt Family, Strowman has dominated singles competition on Monday Night RAW, which included an epic back-and-forth feud with "The Big Dog" Roman Reigns at multiple PPV events.
Strowman finally got his shot at the Universal Title at SummerSlam in a Fatal-Four Way match between himself, Reigns, Samoa Joe, and Lesnar. Strowman completely dominated Lesnar during the match, putting him through multiple announce tables.
Although Lesnar was able to retain his title in that match, the nostalgia to see Lesnar and Strowman go one-on-one still loomed over the event after what WWE fans saw Strowman do. Nobody has ever shown the ability to dominate Lesnar inside the ring, and the pair were matched up with one another for No Mercy after Strowman confronted "The Beast" on Monday Night RAW.
Strowman was built up as the favorite heading into the match after attacking Lesnar on multiple occasions in the build up to the fight, with his ridiculous size and strength advantage over the former UFC heavyweight champ leaving the WWE Universe in awe. At one point Lesnar got to hit a German Suplex on Strowman, who simply stood back up immediately and planted "The Beast" down to the canvas with a powerslam.
Upon their match last night things picked up where they were left off on their last confrontation, as Strowman was able to dominate early on. After locking in a Kimura on Strowman, however, Lesnar was able to take Strowman to Suplex City and wear him down before hitting an F5 for the win. While fans were hyped up for the fight in the lead-up, the match itself didn't really seem to impress fans.
Per a report from Wrestling Inc., fans actually began to boo Braun Strowman as he made his way back to the locker room following the match and after the event went off air.
