Backstage news on Vince McMahon’s reaction to No Mercy

No Mercy Main event

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.

    Would also* be putting the belt on Arquette. Vince may not have done that blunder in one night but he’s done much worse over the course of the past six years. Mike Adamle anyone?

    Alienating fans would be putting the belt on David Arquette.

    Unfortunately.. he’s so self-absorbed he thinks by “sticking it” to us fans he’s showing us up or something when all he’s doing is destroying good talent and decent storylines and alienating fans. It won’t take anything less than him falling over dead to save the WWE. So here’s hoping he keeps juicing and ends it quicker.

    How dare you remember this. Vince specifically wants you to forget things that happened in the last year. Hell, he wants you to forget what happened last week.

    I time to let HHH take over WWE full time. Look what the man has done in NXT he just let the wrestlers be themselves. Why Smackdown doing poor and I don’t think Raw is to bad NXT is still doing the best. HHH is ready time to let him take over.

    Keep alienating your audience Vince. And you wonder why attendance is down.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    But hasn’t Strowman beat Reigns a couple times and stomped him to being unconscious….?!

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Proof that Vince McMahon needs to step away. The guy has been out of touch for a long time, and if he thinks what we got was “wrestlemania quality” then hes obviously delusional

    Wonder if he’s happy with attendance? Based on that it don’t look like the fans agree!

    Wrestlemania quality? If he’s actually serious someone force retire him, sooner the better.

    I am just going to say that why Braun Strowman lost he will be Champion 1 day. I believe they are going to move him to Smackdown after WM. Smackdown and Braun Strowman would be a perfect fit right now. Heck I have Strowman winning the Royal Rumble heading to Smackdown to win the WWE title at WM which could also happen.
