Dean Ambrose vs AJ Styles (WWE World Championship)
Dean Ambrose went head-on at AJ Styles as soon as the bell rang. John Cena, who was doing commentary ringside, reminded viewers that Ambrose could not win the fight via a count out. However, during the match Cena distracted the referee when Ambrose had the Lunatic Fringe rolled up.

The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler (Title vs Career at No Mercy)
The Miz took to the ring to celebrate his win over his rivals. However, as he was celebrating his achievements, he told Dolph Ziggler's parents – seated in the front row – that they have created a world class loser. Next, Ziggler came out and called out The Miz for one last rematch. Initially The Miz declined, but agreed when Ziggler said he will put his career on the line. The match has been scheduled for No Mercy, which will air from the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California on 9 October.
