Braun Strowman makes his entrance. He says when he sees that briefcase he gets motivated because he knows there’s a contract inside that guarantees him a Universal Championship shot any time, anywhere. At Money in the Bank he’s going to destroy seven other men, climb the ladder, and take the briefcase and not only be known as Mr. Money in the Bank, he’ll be Mr. Monster in the Bank.

And who’s going to stop him? Not the Miz, not Bobby Roode, not Finn Balor, not a single member of the New Day, nor Rusev, nor Kevin Owens. He’s gonna cash in and give Brock Lesnar These Hands!

Enter Finn Balor. He thinks Braun is getting ahead of himself, because he was the very first Universal Champion and he never lost that title. Honestly, that eats away at him every day and he’s determined to get back to the top. He’s gonna climb the ladder and take back what’s his. He and Strowman went one-on-one last week and he gave Braun everything he has, but at Money in the Bank there’ll be six other guys in the ring with them, every man for himself.

Strowman says he put up a really good fight for a little guy, and Finn is all smiles in return until he slaps him across the face! Braun biels him out of the corner and Balor falls out of the ring! Strowman heads to follow–

Enter Kurt Angle. He says they’re showing one of his favorite things, Intensity, one of his three I’s. Finn says he gave all he had against Braun, and it was incredible, so he’s booking it again tonight. Right now, in fact! He calls a referee down and we’re off!

…or we will be after the break, at least.

Back from commercial in time for the bell and to see that Kevin Owens has joined the commentary booth.

Braun Strowman vs. Finn Balor

Collar and elbow, Braun biels Finn across the ring once again. Another one, stalking after him, Balor ducks a lariat, sidesteps a charge, but gets caught by a punch to the gut. A headbutt follows, and Strowman takes his time, pointing at the briefcase before whipping Finn hard into the turnbuckles. Finn off the ropes, trying to come back but he gets cut off, knocked down, and punted in the ribs!

Dragging himself up the ropes as referee Shawn Bennett checks on him, Balor comes back in and gets caught again, clubbed to the matt, whipped hard into the turnbuckles again but he’s still getting to his feet. Sidestep a punch, dropkick, hamstring kick, a second kick caught and Braun boots him to the mat! KO gets on the house mic to egg Strowman on, telling him he can do better than that, and we go to break with the monster kicking Finn in the face again.

Back from commercial, Finn ducks a charge and throws punches. Braun turns him around, Balor dodges again, goes for the enzuigiri from the apron but it’s caught and he gets clobbered to the floor with a right hand! Headed around… POUNCE OVER THE BARRICADE! Finn recovers, puts Strowman into the post, running kick when he’s coming back in, flurry of strikes… SHOTGUN DROPKICK PUTS BRAUN TO THE FLOOR!

A baseball slide staggers him and again KO gets on the house mic, this time cheering Finn on and telling him to give him his best shot. As it happens, that’s a gamengiri into a tope con giro and the monster’s off his feet! Braun recovers quick, throws him back inside… and runs into the Sling Blade! Northern shotgun dropkick, up top, Coup de Grace to the back of the head!

Headed up top, the normal Coup de Grace but he wants a definitive win and climbs again… KEVIN OWENS CUTS HIM OFF!

Finn Balor wins by disqualification.

Asuka & The Miz defeated Sasha Banks & Finn Balor

Miz pinned Finn after reversing a crossface into a cradle. The undefeated streak of Asuka continues as she and Miz advance to the next round in the tournament. Less gaga than in previous tournament matches, there was still plenty of walking and talking early on.

Miz tried to cut a promo after the bell rang to start the match. Finn swooped in to attempt several roll-ups. Though Miz kicked out, an animated Asuka showed concern for her streak. Finn kept out-wrestling Miz, so Asuka made a blind tag. Her and Sasha turned up the intensity.

A hot tag saw Finn run wild on Miz. Asuka jumped in the ring to break up a pinning attempt to save her streak. Miz delivered the Skull Crushing Finale on Finn. Sasha broke up the pin to make a save. That led to Finn jumping off the top rope for the Coup de Grace. Asuka again jumped in to break up the pin.

Heading into the finish, Sasha caught Asuka to apply the Bank Statement. Cutting off Miz, Finn applied a crossface. Asuka countered to trap Sasha in the Asuka Lock. Sasha being in peril distracted Finn, which allowed Miz to cradle Finn for the pinfall.

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.

The show opens with Miz, Maryse, and the Miztourage of Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel in the ring.

 

Miz begins to speak and is immediately cut off by Raw GM Kurt Angle making his entrance. He thinks he knows what Miz is going to say, and his perception is that the status of the Intercontinental Championship has been diminished. It wasn’t defended at SummerSlam, but it will be at No Mercy, and his opponent–

 

The A-Lister cuts him off and continues where he left off, defining “respect” according to the dictionary and telling Kurt that he doesn’t understand what respect means. Understand that it’s a disrespect to him when he comes out and interrupts what he has to say, and a disrespect to the Intercontinental Championship.

 

Angle says he’s here to give the title the showcase it does deserve, and next week he’ll defend the title against the winner of a #1 contender’s battle royal that’s going to start right now!

 

Big Show’s in it, totally clean-shaven and terrifying. The Hardy Boyz come down, they’re in it as well. Finn Balor, too. The match will begin after the break.

 

15-Man WWE United States Championship #1 Contender’s Battle Royal

 

Curt Hawkins poses and immediately gets dumped by literally everyone else in the match. They then turn to Big Show, who’s game for them to try and proceeds to throw everybody off like the giant he is. The match breaks down into normal battle royal action from there, the Miztourage dumping Kalisto, Finn working the Drifter over in the corner as the Club and the Hardyz clash.

 

Show caving everybody’s chests in with overhand chops but Karl Anderson is looking to put him to sleep. The giant shrugs him off but Luke Gallows and Finn Balor assist him in dumping Big outside and eliminating him! The Club riding high together, baby! Elias and Balor into it with each other again, Matt Hardy looking to dump Jeff Hardy at the same time as the Miztourage dump R-Truth and eliminate him!

 

Goldust nearly eliminates Jordan, Axel and Dallas have Balor of the ropes and the Drifter comes to help but Balor stays in there. Again Elias goes after Finn but Goldust of all people makes the save and drops him with a snap scoop powerslam. Anderson with the inverted Gun Stun, Big Hoot with the slicing right and a low bridge eliminates Goldust to send us to break.

 

Back from commercial, the battle royal rages on,Jordan trying to eliminate the Drifter while the Hardyz and the Club fight it out and the Miztourage tries to dump Finn. Gallows blocks a Twist of Fate but gets low bridged and eliminated! Anderson thinks he’s got Matt dumped but Hardy lands on the apron and pulls him out with him!

 

Slugging it out on the apron, Twist of Fate denied but Matt puts Anderson into the ringpost and eliminates him! Luke eliminates Matt in return and the Club put the boots to him. With the referees distracted, Miz saves Bo! The Miztourage in it with Jason, Finn heads to the apron for a moment to clock Axel, picking up a head of steam before taking it to Elias and nearly eliminating him with a gamengiri!

 

Balor taking all comers, shotgun dropkick on Bo, Sling Blade on Jordan, a face off with Jeff Hardy but he starts rolling in return, Manhattan Drop to the basement dropkick, Twist of Fate denied and Finn plants him with a Sling Blade! Shotgun dropkick puts Dallas in the corner, one for Brother Nero as well–

 

(Wyatt noise.)

 

Bray Wyatt eliminates Finn Balor!

 

(Wyatt noise.)

 

Miztourage arebeating on Jordan but he stacks ’em up for a shoulder block, overhead belly-to-belly suplexes for the Drifter and Jeff! Miztourage double team him but he evades them and dumps both of them! He dumps Elias too! Jeff comes from behind…

 

Jeff Hardy wins, last eliminating Jason Jordan over the top rope and becoming #1 contender to the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
