Tonight's No Mercy event made history as it was announced shortly before the show went live, that the main event would be the very first match.
Featuring three of the biggest names on Smackdown live, the WWE Championship match between AJ Styles, John Cena and Dean Ambrose actually opened the show.
A controversial ending
The decision to move the triple threat match to the top of the show was likely due to ratings, but fans were hoping it would lead to something later in the show.

That didn't prove to be true, but the match itself gave the night a very strong opening as the three men put on a terrific match.
It was back and forth all the way, but it all came down to one big moment where the champion Styles actually tapped out.
His submission was ruled out however as he was caught in holds by both of his opponents and the referee couldn't determine one clear winner.
The match was continued and it then led to Styles eventually regaining the title by pinning Cena.
It had been largely expected that Styles would regain his championship and with both Cena and Ambrose set to take time away from WWE in the coming months, Styles' next challengers could be very interesting.
