WWE No Mercy 2017 Crash Course

No Mercy 2017 was hyped up as a Wrestlemania caliber Pay-Per-View. Did it live up to the hype? Remember when you were in grade school and you talked about how a story arcs? You start with the Beginning, then the rising action, climax, falling action, and conclusion? That is kind of how No Mercy felt, but the climax was a Raw Tag Team Championship Match and the conclusion wasn’t great in the form of Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman. Lets get to it.

The All-NBA Fight Team

The NBA’s zero-tolerance policy when it comes to fighting has created the perception that basketball players are soft.  Would you be wrong to say such a thing? For sure not.  It’s no secret that the majority of today’s players are all bark and no bite.  However, take the time to comb through a few rosters and you are bound to find some guys that may be better suited for the octagon than they are the hardwood.  Below I’ve assembled the definitive All-NBA Fight Team that will always be ready to throw hands at the drop of a hat.
