The pre-show kicks off with Renee Young welcoming us and introducing the rest of the panel, comprised tonight of David Otunga, Jerry “the King” Lawler, and Sam Roberts. Finn Balor joins the panel from backstage and says he’s never pretended to be something that he’s not. He created the Demon, he controls it, and anyone who faces Bray Wyatt should be hesitant. But he’s proven time and again that he’s an extraordinary man who does extraordinary things, and tonight at No Mercy he’s going to do that one more time.
Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor (Man vs. Man Match)
Wyatt blindsides Balor before the bell and puts boots to him! Dumping Finn outside, ramming him into the barricade, putting his face repeatedly into the announce table… ROCK BOTTOM ONTO THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! Choking him on it, and referee Chad Patton finally gets Bray to back off and checks Balor. The referees begin helping Finn to the back and Wyatt gets on the mic.
He tells Los Angeles to look what he just did to their hero, and he bids Balor run away like the little coward he is. He forgot to inform him that the man he was set to face wasn’t a man at all, but a god. He orders Finn to look at him and tells him he isn’t a Demon, he’s not a man, he’s a coward. Balor takes his jacket off and, clutching his ribs in pain, hustles back to the ring!
We have a bell and Finn is throwing hands! Sister Abigail denied, he passes Bray outside and nails him with a dropkick that sends him into the barricade! Shotgun dropkick into another section of barricade, back inside but Wyatt cuts him off in the turnbuckles for a punch and a headbutt before landing a superplex that aggravates the rib injury but Balor refuses to let it put him away!
Headbutt to the ribs, Bray struts like Akeem the African Dream before taking things to the apron. He… licks his finger and rubs his shirt over his nipple? Weird. Anyway, struggle on the apron and Wyatt drops Finn with a clubbing blow to the back that puts his shoulder into the apron! Back in the ring, cravate applied, Balor fights out with a jawbreaker and Bray shoves him into the corner.
Finn picking up steam, running Wyatt over, chop in the corner, whip reversed, up and over, Wyatt lands a superkick! Outside again but Balor traps him in the ring skirt and clubs away at him! Up on the apron, shifting to stomps, Penalty Kick off the apron! Finn draws Bray up and smashes his face into the announce table a bit before throwing him back in the ring.
Balor up top, Wyatt does the spider walk and stops him dead in his tracks for a moment but Balor gets fired up! Nobody home on the stomp but he rolls through and hits the Sling Blade! Running into a boot, Bray gets the big Rock Bottom off, running senton, only good for two! Disdainful kicks and slaps from the Eater of Worlds, he puts Finn off the ropes but gets caught into a strike exchange.
Pele kick connects, Sister Abigail denied, standing double stomp gets Balor another nearfall! Hesitation dropkick, Finn climbs and again Wyatt cuts him off, thinking about another superplex but Balor clubs at him until he falls to the mat. Perched, double stomp to the back of the neck… NOT ENOUGH! Inverted facelock, Bray reverses, Finn floats out but runs right into a lariat!
Wyatt taking a breather, trying to figure out what he needs to do for a win here, settling on that wicked release suplex of his. Another one, Balor on the back foot, Bray deciding to climb but Finn cuts him off up top with a gamengiri! Wyatt shoves him away, Balor in with the shotgun dropkick, getting himself fired up, he hits another and climbs…
Finn Balor wins by pinfall with the Coup de Grace.

Balor tells Omaha that this is Balor Club. Finn says the NXT Championship used to look real good around his waist. The Universal Title used to look real good around that waist. The Intercontinental Title would have looked good around this waist if it weren’t for Bray Wyatt. When Bray appeared in the battle royal, it cost him the opportunity to challenge the Miz. While he may have been victorious at SummerSlam, you don’t truly beat someone like Bray Wyatt. They appear when you least expect him. The next time you appear, he will be ready.
Balor says he has chosen his fate and he is not afraid. Finn says he does not run from his demons because sometimes, he becomes one. If you want to continue to play games week after week, let’s play.
The lights go out and Bray appears on the TitanTron. Bray says he remembers going fishing when he was young. Bray says after a while, he got bored and it just became too easy. Bray says he decided he wanted to shake things up and he put his weapon down and he started to use his hands, just his hands. His hands became judge, jury, and executioner. Bray says he showed no mercy. When he had the chance to end that pathetic existence, he made the choice and that choice defined him. Bray says he knew what his purpose was. You were victorious at SummerSlam. The Demon won. That is your bow and arrow. Bray wants Finn to face him man to man and show him no mercy. Bray tells Finn to define your legacy. Bray tells Finn to make a choice.
Finn says he has made his choice and he is Finn Balor.
Bray says there he is, the confident hero they all dream of becoming. The question remains, can a mere mortal topple a god or will you just be like the others, running around like a scared rabbit. He tells Finn to run. We go to commercial.

“The Demon” Finn Bálor vs. Bray Wyatt
Bray Wyatt is the first man to make his way to the ring for the next match, and there are a lot of fireflies in attendance at the Barclay’s Center as Wyatt makes his way to the ring.
The lights go out, and a creepy version of ‘He’s got the whole world in his hands’ begins playing before breaking into laughter and cutting off abruptly. The Demon is shown crawling from the back, and when he stands, Balor gets a gigantic pop from the crowd. Balor is in full demon mode, and the sight of the Barclay’s Center raising their arms along with Balor is a very impressive visual.
Wyatt is slow to make his way into the ring, looking hesitant to engage the Demon. The bell rings and Balor crawls in toward Wyatt. Wyatt keeps his distance with a smile, then bows to the outside, pacing around the ring. Bray makes his way back into the ring and he hits Balor with a big right hand, but Balor just shakes it off, hitting Wyatt with a quick kick and series of strikes. Wyatt sends Balor into the corner, and Balor comes right out with a clothesline. Balor beats and kicks on Wyatt, sending him back to the outside. Balor heads out and runs around the ring, taking out Wyatt with a flying forearm to the face. Balor brings things back into the ring and he avoids a charging Wyatt in the corner. Balor snap mares Wyatt, kicks him in the spine, then hits a dropkick to the seated Wyatt. Wyatt kicks Balor away and sends him back to the floor, and Balor leaps over the top rope, wiping Wyatt out with a front flip senton. Balor immediately takes Bray back into the ring and he heads to the top, but Wyatt bails to the floor. Wyatt stuns Balor with a right hand to the face, and he suplexes Balor out to the floor to shift the momentum.
Wyatt beats on Balor, then sends him back into the ring. Bray takes Balor into the corner, and Balor tries to fight back, but Wyatt stops him with a knee to the gut before he takes him up into the corner and drives Balor’s chin into his shoulder. Wyatt goes right into a rear chin lock, grinding away on Finn. Balor is able to break out of the hold, and both men trade straikes. Wyatt sends Balor into the corner and he tries for Sister Abigail, but Balor avoids it, sends Bray to the mat, and hits a quick double stomp to Wyatt’s chest.
Balor catches a charging Wyatt with double boots in the corner before scoring with an overhead kick. Balor hits Wyatt with a couple of quick running forearms before he hits a running dropkick through the ropes and out to the floor. Balor stands on the apron and waits for Wyatt to stand, kicking him square in the face. Balor waits, then launches himself off the apron with a double stomp to the back of Wyatt’s head. Balor heads up to the top rope and he leaps over Bray. Bray tries for another Sister Abigail, but Finn counters out and hits a sling blade to put down Wyatt. Finn runs right into a big boot from Wyatt, and Wyatt follows up with a vicious urunage that’s good for a two count.
Wyatt hits the ropes and connects with a running senton for another two count. Wyatt yells out that he’s got him. Wyatt drags Balor into the corner and he pulls himself up, but Balor stops him with a kick to the side of the head. Balor takes Wyatt down with an elbow to the chest, and Bray goes back to the floor again. Balor follows and charges in with a huge dropkick to the chest that launches Wyatt into the barricade. Balor charges out of the corner into a gigantic clothesline from Wyatt that puts him down for a two count.
Wyatt spider walks toward Balor, and Balor stands up and scream, not intimidated. Balor connects with the sling blade, a dropkick, and the coup de grace, and this one is over with a three count.
Winner: Finn Bálor
After the match, Balor crawls over and stares at Wyatt before standing tall as his music hits. We get replays as Balor does his exit.
