"Great PPV. Here are the matches in order according to stars.1.WCW Tag Team Championship: Hurricane and Lance Storm V.S Hardy Boyz(c) ***1/2- Great starter
2.Test V.S Kane ***1/2- a lot more than I expected
3. First-Ever Lingerie Match: Stacy V.S Torrie ****1/2- I loved this match like any other man out there- the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it's no Andre V.S Hogan
4. Ladder Match for the I.C Championship: Edge V.S Christian(c) ****- brother V.S brother was great- some great high spots and the one man conchairto on the top of the ladder was great
5. WWF Tag Team Championship: Big Show and Tajiri V.S The Dudley Boyz(c) ***- the only thing that made this great ws Tajiri, Big Show, and Rhyno's gore- dudley's performance was a bore
6. Taker V.S Booker T ****- Great match which ended the same as the one at W17- Booker T should have won
7.WCW Championship: Chris Jericho V.S The Rock(c) *****- show stealer- great performance and the Rock finally lost a match to a worthy apponent
8. Triple threat for the WWF Championship: RVD V.S Kurt Angle V.S Stone Cold(c) ****1/2- great match with plenty of high spots but not as entertaining as the Rock/JerichoNo Mercy was all and all a great PPV. I recommend buying when it comes out."

"1-WCW Tag Team Championships
The Hardy Boyz (Champions) vs Lance Storm and The Hurricane
This was a solid opener with some cool double team moves by both teams. Hardyz win with Swanton Bomb
2-Kane vs Test
Excellent Match! These two put on a great match with some huge moves by both men. Test wins with the big boot. After the match Kane gets pissed off and gives Nick Patrick two chokeslams and a powerbomb.
3-1st Ever Lingerie Match
Torrie Wilson vs Stacy Kiebler
This was crap in terms of wrestling, but Awesome in terms of looks. I didn't care bout the wrestling, I watched it for the lingerie. Man these two are hot. Torrie wins.
4-WWF Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match
Christian (Champion) vs Edge
This has got to be the best Ladder Match EVER!!! I loved it. There are two many sick bumbs to discribe. Edge wins it with the 1-Man Conchairto on top of the ladder.
Best Match of the night!
5-WWF Tag Team Championships
The Dudley Boyz (Champions) vs The Big Show and Tijiri
This match wasn't good, but it wasn't pathetic. It could have been better though. The Dudleyz win.
6-Undertaker vs Booker T
This Match was boring, but you should still watch it. Undertaker wins with the Last Ride out the corner.
The Rock (Champion) vs Chris Jericho
Finaly.....Jericho wins the big one!
This match was Awesome. One of the best title matches I've seen. The moves, the attitude, was all in this match. Jericho gets Rock Bottomed through the announce Table. Jericho wins thanks to a steel chair.
8-WWF Championship No DQ.
Stone Cold Steve Austin (Champion) vs Kurt Angle vs RVD
No-one actually used the No DQ rule, except for vince, but this match was Awesome anyway. They all did their signature moves, they all took some cool bumps and Vince kicks Shane's Ass.
Austin wins with a Sick Stunner to RVD.
WWF No Mercy was.....simply electrifying!

"The WWF left No Mercy....for weak matches! This PPV was my favorite of 2001 and maybe ever, this PPV had no weak matches they were either great or good man from the theme music to the stage to the pyro and finally the matches this was WWF at its best from top to bottm lets get the ball rollin' and review the matches....1) WCW Tag Team Titles The Hardyz w/Lita(c) vs Lance Storm w/Ivory & Hurricane w/Mighty Molly 9/10- This was a great way to kick off No Mercy, so many double team moves and great action theres no slowing down or any slow spots this match had a steady pace all the way through and just kicked ***!2)Kane vs Test 8.5/10- This match exceeded what expectations I had for it, Kane and Test pur on a very well fought match Kane has got "hops" but dang that dude can jump and dropkick someone nicely, this match was just great the ref was stupid (Nick Patrick) but the cool spots made up for it.....3) 1st Ever Lingerie Match Stacy Keibler vs Torrie Wilson 10/10- This was one of those matches where it doesn't matter about the wrestling this was flat out awsome reminds me why I was called a perv in Junior High, the only bad was that stupid ref with a woody but hek I would've had one to, great match Stacy and Torrie are both FINE! Nice final pin, grab that ***!!4) WWF InterContinental Title Ladder Match Edge vs Christian(c) 10/10- This was by far the best singles ladder match ever invented so many different usages of the normal household tool, the ladder.....and something that no other ladder match really had and thats a totally reeking of awsomeness finish! Great match brothers set a new bar in bro vs bro matches alot better than Hardy vs Hardy at Vengeance!!!5)WWF Tag Tean titles Dudley Boyz(c) vs Big Show & Tajiri 8/10- This match was the second tag match of the night the first was a hard one to follow up too, but this match was also good, lots of spots and cool moves Rhyno was in there for no reason but to knock out Show which was pointless because Big Show looked like he got slapped in the stomach more than a "GORE" match was good with a nice ending.....6) Undertaker vs Booker T 9/10-This match was a good wrestling match some nice moves by both men but could've had more, but still all in all good match with a predictable ending not very original but the match was still a good one!7) WCW Title The Rock(c) vs Chris Jericho 10/10-This was the show stealer, the best damn WCW title match ever! People who said Rock cannot wrestler and either can Jericho were way off this showed the great chemistry The Rock and Jericho had with no boring moments this was great from top to bottom arguably Rock and Jericho's best match of their careers atleast one fo them, Jericho takes a sick Rockbottom through a table as Jericho reverses the People's Elbow with the Walls! This match just leaves you wanting more, the ending is great and Rock and Jericho put on a CLASSIC!WWF Title Triple Threat No DQ match Stone Cold Steve Austin(c) vs Rob Van dam(HC Champ) vs Kurt Angle 9.5/10- This match had awsome spots and it really was a great main event, all of the men gave it all they had but I wanted RVD or Angle to win, unlike other triple threats this one was great and deserved to have RVD in it as he showcased what he had, just flat out great.....Even though this DVD had no booklet or extras the event made up for it and it was great, I have to admit the cover is stupid but who cares, awsome PPV best quality matches of 2001 and just flat out a showcase of the legends to come!"
There will be No Mercy in St. Louis.....

"No Mercy 2001 had so many great matches that it wasn't easy to give this less than 5 stars. The main event was worth the price of this alone. But the card was solid enough to push this to a five star rating.
WCW Tag Team Championship Match
The Hardy Boyz [Champions] vs. Lance Storm and The Hurricane:
This was a high flying, fast paced match. Both teams were accompanied by ladies as the Hardy Boyz had Lita and Lance Storm and The Hurricane had Molly Holly and Ivory. The Hardy Boyz win after Jeff uses the Swanton Bomb. 8/10
Kane vs. Test:
This was a big man match, as both men used giant kicks to the face all throughout the match. Test tries to use a chair but Kane kicked it right in his face. The WCW ref distracts Kane long enough for Test to get the win. 7/10 [After the match the ref gets his a** handed to him by Kane]
First Ever Lingere Match
Torrie Wilson vs. Stacy Keibler:
This was for the male viewers, and being one myself i didn't complain. I will say that the wrestling was absolutely horrid though. 3/10 [Just for the outfits]
Christian [Champion] vs. Edge:
This ladder match still stands as one of the best one on one ladder matches to this day. Too many spots to name, but one painful one was when Edge jumped off a ladder on top of Christian who was on a ladder. Numerous chair shots by both men but Edge wins after giving the Con-Chair-To to Christian. 10/10
WWF Tag Team Championship Match
Dudley Boyz [Champions] vs. Big Show and Tajiri
The Dudley Boyz main target during this match was Tajiri as Big Show kicked their a**es everytime he was tagged in. Tajiri accidently hit the ref with the green mist. Then Rhyno comes down and gores Big Show. The Dudley Boyz win after giving Tajiri the 3D. 8/10 Good match
Undertaker vs. Booker T:
Not much to say, its just like their match at Judgment Day 2004 but the excitment from the crowd was much better. Back and forth action and the Undertaker wins with the Last Ride Powerbomb. 7/10, [okay match, just a card filler my opinion.]
WCW World Heavyweight Championship Match
The Rock [Champion] vs. Chris Jericho:
This was the best of the three times these two have gone one on one with each other. Jericho gets Rock Bottomed through a table during the match, then Stephanie comes down and gets Rock Bottomed as well. Jericho wins thanks to a steel chair. 9/10 excitment all the way through.
WWF World Heavyweight Championship
Stone Cold Steve Austin [Champion] vs. Kurt Angle and RVD:
Three unique stlyes met in a triple threat match for Austins championship. The action was fast paced and all three men broke up three counts at various times. Not much weapons were used but Angle did backdrop Austin on an announce table but the table didn't break.
Mr. McMahon came to the ring and used a chair on Austin. Shane McMahon made his presence known and attacked Vince. Austin wins after giving the stunner to Rob Van Dam. 10/10 [Greatest main event in the history of No Mercy.]
No Mercy 2001 was one of the best ppvs that year had near its end. To think that now we have to deal with guys like Heidenreich and stupid car crashes. [Just watch No Mercy 2004 to see what I mean]"
