While many fans weren’t pleased with the way things went at No Mercy it appears that the Boss Mr. McMahon was happy with the finish of the event.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the idea behind the match between John Cena and Roman Reigns was that Reigns would win with his usual moves after Cena wouldn’t be able to beat him with his best moves.
Similarly, in the match between Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman, Strowman was expected to hit Brock with several powerslams and then Lesnar was expected to win the match with just one F5.
Since both the matches went the way Officials had planned, Vince McMahon was pleased with it and he believes that they delivered two ‘WrestleMania Quality’ matches without clear, noncontroversial finish.
The idea behind both these matches was to establish both Reigns and Brock as two stars who stand out and demonstrate that there is no one else on their level in the company.
This way it will make the strongest impression when the Big Dog will defeat the Beast and win the Universal Championship at WrestleMania next year.
