Hell in a Cell Match for the RAW Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair defeated Sasha Banks (C) to win the title
Charlotte regained the RAW Women’s Championship for the third time after rag dolling Sasha Banks onto a table (it didn’t break) before hitting Natural Selection. Because there was no big stunt before the pin, it came off as an abrupt and flat ending to an otherwise good Hell in a Cell match. The match started out with an homage to the Undertaker/Mankind Hell in a Cell match with Banks getting seemingly removed and stretchered out of the match after Flair attacked her before the bell, ultimately driving her through an announce table with a power bomb. Like Foley, Sasha rolled off the stretcher and the match was on. While the action was good, several big moments didn’t go as planned. In one spot, Charlotte fell from the apron onto a table that collapsed but didn’t break and near the finish Sasha was thrown onto the table twice with the table staying intact both times.

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.
