My custom logo for No Mercy.
The buildup now heading towards Survivor Series will be no easy ride. The two events that I have leading into Survivor Series are made to be brutal.
No Mercy, in early September, is the first stop on the road to Survivor Series. Swapping the name No Way Out for a more fitting title of No Mercy works best.
That's right...No Mercy will feature steel cage matches. I think it should be the return of a style of Steel Cage that was only used once: the barbed wire steel cage! Every match needs to be contested in some form of steel cage. The idea that WWE has developed with the use of handcuffs and lumberjacks is great. Here's a quick jot down of what a card may look like.
Match 1: Fatal 4-Way Divas Championship Steel Cage Match
Match 2: Tornado Undisputed Tag Team Championship Steel Cage Match
Match 3: World Heavyweight Champion Handcuff Steel Cage Match—before escaping the steel cage, the wrestler must handcuff their opponent, preventing their opponent's escape.
Match 4: Intercontinental/United States Championship Lumberjack Steel Cage Match—the only way to win the match is by pin-fall, submission or escaping through the cage door.
The cage used in the first four matches will be set up from the beginning of the show. The barbed wire steel cage will be lowered after the traditional cage has been dismantled and removed.
Match 5: WWE Championship Barbed Wire Steel Cage Match—a traditional steel cage match with barbed wire and razor wire trimming the frame of the steel cage as well as razor wire around the door.
