We are just hours away from the No Mercy pay-per-view and Vince McMahon apparently does not know yet what he wants to do for the main event between Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar or he is making sure that nothing leaks out before the show.
On Friday’s Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez noted that there are two times listed for the Universal Championship match on the format sheet given to writers and producers.
Alvarez said, “It wasn’t explained to me as well as it could have but basically, there are two times listed for the main event. That doesn’t mean that there’s gonna be a finish and they’re gonna do another match. Basically, Vince hasn’t decided which one to do yet or he has decided but he doesn’t want anyone to know and so on the format sheet that times out the show, there’s one where the main event is ‘X’ number of minutes and there’s another where the main event is a different number of minutes. So, I think that he’s gonna make his decision late in the day on Sunday. So I guess maybe don’t put any money on that match if you think you know what the finish is because I think that’s gonna be one of those top-secret finishes style matches.”
So, I guess this means that there is a chance that Braun Strowman will win the Universal Championship on Sunday night. Keep in mind that the long-term plan is still for Roman Reigns to challenge Brock Lesnar for the title at WrestleMania so, if Stowman wins at No Mercy, then that means that Lesnar would win the title back within the next few months.
