Backstage No Mercy News: Jericho Update, MVP/Rhodes, More

Tim Brown

— The dark match before the No Mercy PPV started saw Carlito & Primo beat The Miz & John Morrison.

— No Way Out in February looks to be in Seattle. They will be bringing back the Elimination Chamber for that show.

— The reason they had the long in-ring promo on the show was obviously to feature some of the guys that have been on television as of late but did not have matches on the actual PPV. Management was worried about them looking ‘minor league’, so they threw them on the show late in the planning process. It also opens up nice PPV bonuses as well for those featured.

— Chris Jericho was busted open the hard way during his No Mercy ladder match, no blading there. Jericho is now set to face Batista at Cyber Sunday.
