2016 WWE NO MERCY PARTICIPANTS’ HISTORY

As I do every month, it’s time to look at this weekend’s No Mercy Pay-Per-View and see the history of all of the participants. WWE brought back No Mercy after an 8 year absence, as a Smackdown Exclusive PPV. To see the entire 10 year history of No Mercy, visit the No Mercy History HERE. And for any feedback or comments about this, comment below or tweet me (@hbkid718). Thanks.

Since there hasn’t been a No Mercy in 8 years, most of the roster have never competed at a No Mercy event. The only current roster members that have competed at No Mercy that are on the Raw brand are: The Big Show, Mark Henry, Chris Jericho, Kane, Brian Kendrick, & Primo. The rest, John Cena, Randy Orton, & The Miz are on the Smackdown brand and are competing at this year’s event. Everyone else will be making their No Mercy PPV debuts. If Orton VS Wyatt is the opening match, then it will be Orton’s 1st opener since 2007.
