Footage is shown from last week’s RAW Women’s Championship match. Alexa Bliss defeated Sasha Banks clean to regain the title. Banks has never won a title defense. Nia Jax then turned on Bliss much to the delight of the crowd.
At No Mercy, Alexa Bliss will defend her WWE RAW Women’s Championship against Sasha Banks. RAW General Manager Kurt Angle is backstage on his phone when Nia Jax walks in. She wants to know how Sasha Banks got a match for the title over her and says some really, really awkward jargon. Jax felt the Women’s Division trembling when she held the title up. Emma walks in and says no one was talking about Jax last week. The internet was buzzing about her. She wants to start a new hashtag: give Emma a chance at the Women’s Title. Jax says if she doesn’t get out of her, it will be “#PutEmmaInTheHospital.” They will team up together tonight against Banks and Bliss. If they win, the match will be a Fatal 4-Way at No Mercy.
The Steel Cage is seen hanging over the ring. Footage is shown from April of this year when Strowman and Big Show collapsed the ring.
Tony Nese, Noam Dar and Drew Gulak make their way to the ring. Out comes their opponents: Enzo Amore, Cedric Alexander and Gran Metalik. Enzo goes through his usual shtick. Enzo says if you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying. Enzo says he knows controversy follows him everywhere he goes like a shadow, but controversy creates cash. He’s a walking, talking check. Enzo says he’s a little smarter. 205 Live just became one of the realest hours of television. Enzo then does some introductions for his tag team partners. Enzo then runs down their opponents, culminating with him calling Drew Gulak, “Captain Underpants”, just like he did last week. They’re going to chew them up like Omaha Steaks because there’s only one word to describe them: S-A-W-F-T!

Sasha Banks is preparing backstage when Alexa Bliss walks in. She says she doesn’t like the situation anymore than Banks does. She thinks Nia Jax and Emma are jealous they’ve never been champions. Banks says Bliss needs her tonight. Banks doesn’t want Emma or Jax in the match either because she wants to beat Bliss straight. Bliss tells her to get over it. Banks says they’ll be victorious tonight and at No Mercy, she’ll make her scream when she makes her tap out.

We see Finn Balor backstage, also wearing a Conor t-shirt, and he’s coming to the ring to talk Bray Wyatt!
Finn Bálor makes his entrance to a good reception from the Omaha crowd. Bálor says The Bálor Club is in Omaha, Nebraska. The NXT Championship used to look really good around his waist, as did the Universal Championship. The Intercontinental Championship would have looked good around his waist if it wasn’t for Bray Wyatt. When Wyatt appeared last week in the Battle Royal, he cost him an opportunity to challenge The Miz. While he was victorious at SummerSlam, you never truly beat someone like Wyatt. Wyatt appears when you least expect him. The next time Wyatt appears, Bálor will be ready. Bálor has chosen his fate and is not worried. Bálor doesn’t run from his demons because sometimes he becomes them. If Wyatt wants to continue to play games, then they should play.
Bray Wyatt’s video flashes on the screen, and he is shown from an unknown location. Wyatt talks about the first time he hunted, but he got bored because it was too easy. Wyatt put his weapon down and started using his hands instead. His bare hands judged them all, and they were always guilty. Wyatt showed no mercy. During those moments he had the chance to either end their pathetic existence or run along, he made a choice. That choice defined him. Wyatt knew what his purpose was. Bálor wasn’t victorious over him at SummerSlam: The Demon was. The Demon was his weapon, so Wyatt challenges him to put down his weapon and come at him. Wyatt dares him to make a choice.

Bálor says he already made his choice and knows exactly what he is: he is Finn Bálor. Wyatt says the question remains: at No Mercy, will he run like a scared little rabbit? Wyatt tells him to run.
Alexa Bliss makes her way to the ring, followed by her partner, Sasha Banks! Their opponents are out next, Nia Jax and Emma, and if they win they get inserted into the match at No Mercy.
