The show opens with a lengthy recap of the entertaining promos from John Cena and Roman Reigns during last week's show.
1) John Cena def. Jason Jordan via Attitude Adjustment in over 11 minutes. Cena helped him up/shook his hand after before celebrating. The celebration, however, was cut short by Roman Reigns.
After the break, Reigns and Cena go back and forth like they did last week, even taking some middle school jabs. Roman dares Cena to beat him up tonight, but Roman just ends up leaving.
Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose come out for commentary for the next match as it's revealed they'll defend their titles in a SummerSlam rematch at No Mercy.
2) Sheamus & Cesaro def. Heath Slater & Rhyno via Brogue Kick in 2:15.
Backstage, Renee Young interviews The Hardy Boyz about Jeff's title match. Matt says it's the perfect night for a new champ. Jeff brings up his daughter watching tonight and how he plans to walk out with the title. Matt notes that the entourage will encounter a twist of fate if they try to interfere.
3) Intercontinental Championship Match: The Miz (c) def. Jeff Hardy via Skull Crushing Finale in 13 minutes. Matt, Axel, and Dallas were ejected halfway through, but Maryse remained at ringside the whole time.
It's announced Banks will get her title rematch against Bliss at No Mercy. Nia Jax walks into Angle's office and questions why Sasha is getting a rematch, and not her. Emma interrupts and talks about her social media campaign. Angle books Nia & Emma vs. Sasha & Bliss tonight, with No Mercy implications on the line.
We take a look back at how Big Show and Braun Strowman broke the ring earlier this spring. The cruiserweights come out for the next match. Enzo cuts a promo on everyone and references his cheating from last week on 205 Live.
4) Enzo Amore, Cedric Alexander & Gran Metalik def. Noam Dar, Tony Nese & Drew Gulak via pinfall in 5 minutes.
Backstage, Sasha and Alexa share words and get in each other's face about tonight's match and their No Mercy rematch.
Finn Balor comes out to the ring to cut a promo on Bray Wyatt. Wyatt eventually interrupts on the tron and tells a story about how he uses his bare hands to show no mercy. Wyatt challenges Finn to beat him man to man, without a demon. Wyatt ends it by telling him to run.
5) Emma & Nia Jax def. Sasha Banks & Alexa Bliss via pinfall in 9 minutes. Emma & Nia are now in the No Mercy title match.
Backstage, Renee asks Braun about his first cage match tonight. Braun questions what Kurt is thinking - locking him in a cage with Big Show. Braun says he's sending a message to Kurt, Show, Brock, and everyone else that destruction follows no matter where he goes.
6) Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose def. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson via roll-up in 11:48. Sheamus & Cesaro were at ringside the whole time and tried to interfere. Gallows & Anderson ambushed them from behind after. As a result, The Bar got back in the ring to take out the good brothers.
We see a video on Connor's Cure that features several patients/kids dressing up as heroes/wrestlers.
Backstage, Neville interrupts Enzo talking to Cedric and Metalik backstage. He informs them they'll compete in a five-way elimination match on 205 Live, where the winner will challenge him at No Mercy.
We hear from referee John Cone and then Big Show in separate backstage interviews. Cone says he'll stay out of the way, while Show is fired up.
7) Steel Cage Match: Braun Strowman def. Big Show via pinfall in 17 minutes. After, Braun grabs a mic and threatens Brock again. He starts to leave but grabs Show and sends him completely through one of the cage walls.
