WWE World Championship: Jinder Mahal defeated Randy Orton (C)

The Era of the Maharaja has begun! In a shocking upset, Jinder Mahal defeated Randy Orton with a Cobra Clutch Slam to win the WWE Championship after Orton was distracted taking out the Singh Brothers, wrecking one in particular on the Spanish Announce table. Orton attacked Mahal before the bell rang but Mahal controlled a good portion of the match working over Orton’s shoulder.

It was an average WWE match which was elevated by a great atmosphere at times, from Mahal being booed heavily during his entrance, receiving dueling “Let’s Go Jinder/Jinder Sucks” chants during the match and the legendary post-match fan reactions. As someone who bores quickly when Randy Orton is the blue-eyed baby face champion, the shakeup of Mahal as the SmackDown kingpin is a welcome development for a show that has struggled since AJ Styles was unseated as the Champ That Runs The Camp.

No Mercy Results – WWE

Luke Harper returned to distract Randy Orton long enough for Bray Wyatt to nail him with Sister Abigail and score a victory over the Viper in the show-closing match of No Mercy.  Why didn’t I call it the main event you ask? Because WWE opened last night’s event with the match labeled “The Main Event”, as AJ Styles defeated John Cena & Dean Ambrose by pinning Cena after a chair shot. Earlier in the match, Styles tapped to a double submission by Ambrose and Cena, causing the referee to restart the match. And in the other standout match of the evening, Dolph Ziggler captured his 5th Intercontinental Championship, keeping his career going in the process, against The Miz. Another solid show all around for the blue brand.

Becky Lynch did not defend her Women’s Championship as scheduled due to an undisclosed medical reason that is not in-ring related and not serious. Her match with Alexa Bliss has been rescheduled for the November 8th Smackdown Live in Glasgow, Scotland.
