WWE.com is reporting that the triple threat WWE World Championship match between AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose and John Cena will kick off the No Mercy PPV.
WWE did not reveal why the match was shifted from the main event to the beginning, but the belief was that WWE did not want to compete with the second Presidential Debate.
Also added to the No Mercy Kickoff Show tonight is an eight man tag team match featuring American Alpha and The Hype Bros vs. The Vaudevillains and The Ascension.
