OSR: WWE No Mercy 1999 Review

No Mercy 1999 Review

With the tragic news that Joanie “Chyna” Laurer has passed away, it only seems fitting to go back to the event which made her stand out and earn her rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame. This was a very unusual time in the WWE, because they were literally destroying WCW week after week but the WWE Championship was being played on a continual game of monopoly. But, not only with Chyna, this event made history by crowning probably one of the oldest champions in wrestling history. Snippets of this event have being seen before, but cannot recall whether it has being seen in its entirety. Nonetheless, as a tribute to Chyna, here is the…

OSR: WWE No Mercy 1999 Review

The opening promo is based around Triple H‘s rise to the top and reign of terror over the WWE in the recent weeks. It is a very simple, but greatly effective promo to start the show before we head inside the Gund Arena in Cleveland, Ohio for tonight’s event with our commentators for the evening Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler. However, before long we are off to the first match of the evening;

The Godfather vs. Mideon (w/ Viscera)

The Godfather makes his way to the ring first, with a variety of ladies to an incredible reaction as a brief clip is shown from SmackDown where Mideon and Viscera attacked Godfather. Anyhow, Mideon then makes his way to the ring and the match gets underway. There is a great atmosphere to the match but there isn’t anything about the match which makes it anything half decent. Eventually, The Godfather wins following a Ho Train in a pitiful opening match.

Winner: The Godfather

Match Rating: 0.5 out of 5.0 Stars

We are shown a clip from SmackDown where Triple H with the assistance of Chyna brutally attacked Stone Cold Steve Austin before we see an earlier interview from Sunday Night Heat with Triple H talking about what happened, and how much of a gullible idiot Austin is. He then goes onto talk about how he will walk out of No Mercy as he came in, the WWE Champion. We then see an interview with Ivory talking about her match with The Fabulous Moolah.

WWE Women’s Championship: Ivory (c) vs. The Fabulous Moolah (w/ Ivory)

Moolah makes her way to the ring first, and Ivory soon follows as JR really emphasizes the age of Moolah. Ivory starts the match off with some defense but Moolah to her credit does fight back whilst Mae continually tries to interfere but just gets continually nailed by Ivory. The match nevertheless is worked at a snails pace, but at least there is some credibility as there is some degree of wrestling moves. Eventually, Moolah uses her signature roll-up to pin Ivory and become the oldest champion in WWE history. Doesn’t do much for Ivory, but it certainly gives an unexpected shock value to the event even if the match was awful.

Winner: The Fabulous Moolah, to capture the WWE Women’s Championship

Match Rating: 0.5 out of 5.0 Stars

The New Age Outlaws: Road Dogg and Billy Gunn vs. Crash Holly and Hardcore Holly

The Outlaws make their way to the ring first, and cut their standard promo for the time which receives a really good reaction before The Holly’s make their way to the ring but are effectively dominated in the early moments. The Holly’s are able to regain the control of the match, and this remains so for the next few minutes over Road Dogg until he is able to mount a comeback with an enormous suplex. The end of the match comes when Hardcore Holly slides a chair into the ring, which Billy Gunn nails Crash with a Fame Asser onto it which leads to the referee disqualifying The Outlaws. Very bland match, this didn’t have anything interesting about it.

Winners: Crash Holly and Hardcore Holly, via Disqualification

Match Rating: 0.5 out of 5.0 Stars
