Based on a new trademark filing made by WWE, it seems the company may be bringing back a retired pay-per-view.
On April 7, WWE filed to trademark ‘No Mercy’ with the United States Patent & Trademark Office.
The last No Mercy pay-per-view took place in 2017, seeing Roman Reigns beat John Cena, and Brock Lesnar retain the Universal Title over Braun Strowman in the main event.
The first No Mercy took place in May, 1999 in Manchester, England, main evented by Steve Austin retaining the WWF Championship over Triple H and Undertaker in a three-way match.
The trademark filing was made with the following description, which implies it could just be for merchandise purposes:
