1. ECW Title Match:
Matt Hardy (c) vs. Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas)
This was a surprisingly decent/watchable opener, a remarkable feat considering Mark Henry is in it, and it did its job of keeping the crowd hot. These two executed a believable and watchable match. **1/4 stars
2. Women's Title Match:
Beth Phoenix (c) (w/ Santino Marella) vs. Candice Michelle
Another surprisingly good match, and a Women's Title Match no less! While it was kept short, I was very impressed with the quality of this match and these two women deserve to be commended. This also kept the crowd hot and excited and there is nothing at all unwatchable about this match. *1/4
3. Kane vs. Rey Mysterio: if Rey Mysterio loses, he must remove his mask
While I must say that WWE really dropped the ball on this storyline, this match was quite enjoyable, and most of all, believable! You wouldn't expect a match between a 7-footer and someone who is 5 foot 6 to be believable, but these two executed the match impressively. Don't get me wrong, this is not an exceptional match, per say, but it is very watchable and enjoyable with a great ending.Read more ›
ECW Champion Matt Hardy vs Mark Henry. The story going into this one was that Mark Henry had lost the title the previous month at Unforgiven but was never officially beaten within the scramble match leading to this match. Henry obviously had the power advantage early by tossing Hardy around & delivering powerful clotheslines but Hardy was able to resort to a stick/move offense including working over Henry's knee which ended up playing a factor various times during the match. This was the type of match that we should have gotten back at SummerSlam as it was a solid worked match but I actually enjoyed their previous encounter on free TV which is ironcially on the SummerSlam DVD as an extra.
WWE Womens' Champion Beth Phoenix vs Candice Michelle. Candice came out right away to try and score the quick win before Beth's power was able to regain some momentum. That momentum would quickly return to Candice with Santino trying to do his best for Beth to get back into the match with him paying for it in the end. This wasn't a long match but it was enjoyable for what it was as they made the best out of the time they had with Santino being the comedy factor on the outside but pay close attention to the aftermath for a tease of tension between Beth & Santino.

Womens Champion Beth Phoenix vs. Candice Michelle - Well, I enjoyed this match more than their series around this time last year with Beth working on Candice's previously injured shoulder while Candice tried hard with her selling & offense. Of course, Santino was at ringside actually added to the match here instead of distracting from it.
Rey Mysterio vs. Kane - The stipulation here was that if Mysterio loses, he must unmask. Normally I don't like these "David vs. Goliath" matches with Mysterio as he's just regulated to being nothing more than a spotmonkey to make the other guy look big & dominate (just look at his World Title reign) but that wasn't the case here as Rey got some good offense in, was able to hold his own against Kane here, and took one hell of a chairshot.
Right around here was a talking segment between M.V.P. & Randy Orton. Unlike how the talking segments at SummerSlam (HBK/Jericho), Unforgiven (Show/Guerrero/Undertaker), and Armageddon (HBK/JBL)...this was just pointless, didn't do anything for anybody and was a waste of time that had the crowd turn on it right away by chanting "boring!"
Batista vs. J.B.L. - This match was almost a carbon copy of their SummerSlam 2005 match in that the match only served one purpose & that was to showcase Batista as being dominate as hell and with the exception of J.B.L. getting in a few shots here & there, it was exactly that.Read more ›

In my opinion, this opener was very successful. Even though Henry has some limited skills, Matt made him look strong. Read more
After coming off an interesting Unforgiven, No Mercy was average at best on this night. Many of these matches had so much potential going in but most of them did not paid out. Read morePublished on November 4, 2008 by Scotty M.

WWE's NO MERCY 2008 is an unbelievably sub par event. All three of WWE's TV shows did a solid job of building up every one of these PPV matches. Read morePublished on October 5, 2008 by R.A. McKenzie
