The History of No Mercy

The first No Mercy event took place in England in 1999. The name was used again later that year as the name of a U.S. PPV event. Since 1999, the event has been held every October. From 2003 until 2006, the event was a SmackDown only PPV. Many important events have taken place at the show that are still being felt to this day. In 2002, the first-ever WWE tag team champions were crowned. On that same show, the Intercontinental Championship was retired. Even though the belt was brought back several months later, many would argue that it has never regained its former prestige. The 2005 main event featured the final PPV appearance of the late Eddie Guerrero.
