Please be like the game. WWE holds quite a few pay per view events every year, with about one taking place every month. That makes for quite a full schedule, but it also makes coming up with good names a little bit difficult. Some of the names are classics, which some of them make you wonder who actually approved of the idea. There have been a lot of names over the years, and one of them might be coming back.

The name of a pay per view can go a long way in telling you what it is about. Sometimes this involves just saying the name of the show, which works well enough but can only go so far. It is easy to understand the ideas of Royal Rumble, Money in the Bank and Survivor Series, but sometimes you might want something a little less specific. That is what WWE might be trying again.

According to, WWE has filed a new trademark applications for No Mercy, which the company used as a name for a pay per view from 1998-2008, followed by a return in 2016 and 2017. There is no word on when WWE would be running another No Mercy event, though their pay per views in May and June are set as Money in the Bank and Backlash respectively.

The show has a history. Check out some great No Mercy moments:

FULL MATCH - Raw Women’s Title Fatal 5-Way Match: WWE No Mercy 2017

FULL MATCH: Roman Reigns vs. John Cena: WWE No Mercy 2017

The Hardy Boyz vs. Edge & Christian - Ladder Match: No Mercy 1999

Opinion: Sure why not. No Mercy isn’t the greatest name in the world but it’s fine for a show that has been around before and has an easy enough name to remember. It’s certainly better than some of the names that WWE has used before so maybe they can do something a little bit better going forward. I’m not sure what it is going to replace, but we could go for some more basic names like this one.
