No Mercy (2006) was the eighth annual No Mercy professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). It took place on October 8, 2006 from the RBC Centermarker in Raleigh, North Carolinamarker and was a SmackDown! brand-exclusive event.

The main event was a Fatal Four-Way match for the World Heavyweight Championship between defending champion King Booker, Bobby Lashley, Batista, and Finlay, which Booker won after pinning Finlay. One of the predominant matches on the card was Mr. Kennedy versus The Undertaker, which Kennedy won after Undertaker was disqualified. Another primary match on the undercard was Rey Mysterio versus Chavo Guerrero in a Falls Count Anywhere match. Mysterio won the match by pinning Guerrero after a crossbody off a rail.

Background

The main feud heading into No Mercy was between King Booker, Bobby Lashley, Batista, and Finlay with the four battling over the World Heavyweight Championship. At SummerSlam, the pay-per-view two months before No Mercy, Batista defeated King Booker by disqualification after Queen Sharmell interfered, resulting in Booker retaining the World Heavyweight Championship. The next week on SmackDown!, Batista along with Bobby Lashley defeated King Booker's Court (Booker, Finlay, and William Regal) in a 3-on-2 Handicap match. Booker's Court controlled most of the match, isolating Batista and Lashley from each other. Towards the end of the match, Lashley tagged in Batista, who ended up pinning Booker for the win after a Spinebuster. Two weeks later on the September 8 edition of SmackDown!, Batista faced Booker for the World Heavyweight Championship, which Booker won after Finlay interfered and hit Batista with a shillelagh. After the match, Finlay continued to attack Batista with the shillelagh and a steel chair. The next week on SmackDown!, Finlay began degrading Batista, saying he is probably hiding in a hole licking his wounds. As Finlay was about to continue, Lashley came out and said that only someone like him would jump Batista from behind. SmackDown! General Manager Theodore Long then announced that, Finlay would face off against Lashley later that night to determine the number one contender to the World Heavyweight Championship at No Mercy. Lashley defeated Finlay and became number one contender after Finlay was disqualified for hitting him with a shillelagh. On the September 22 edition of SmackDown!, Lashley teamed up with Batista to take on Finlay and Regal. Midway through the match, Batista and Finlay brawled outside the ring and into the crowd, leaving Regal on his own against Lashley. Lashley gained the pinfall after hitting Regal with a Spear. Later that night it was announced that Batista would face off against Finlay at No Mercy. Two weeks later on the October 6 edition of SmackDown!, Booker faced off against Finlay and Batista faced off against Lashley, with both matches ending in a no-contest. This lead Theodore Long to make the one-on-one World title match at No Mercy, a Fatal Four-Way match.

The other main match on the card was Mr. Kennedy versus The Undertaker. On the September 8 edition of SmackDown!, Kennedy called out General Manager Theodore Long, and informed him that if John Cena comes to SmackDown!, he wants a spot on Raw; as Kennedy proclaimed that SmackDown! didn't interest him anymore because he had already defeated every top performer on the roster. This led to Long booking a match between an opponent Kennedy had never faced, that opponent turned out to be The Undertaker. The match was scheduled to take place at No Mercy. On the September 29 edition of SmackDown!, Kennedy presented a tribute to the Undertaker and tried to get out of the match. However, the Undertaker made his presence known to Kennedy, as he informed him, "I show no mercy, and you will rest in peace". Kennedy attempted to strike the Undertaker with his microphone, but the microphone suddenly blew up in Kennedy's hand.

The most personal feud was between Rey Mysterio and Chavo Guerrero. This feud started when Guerrero cost Mysterio the World championship at The Great American Bash, claiming that he was "a leech living off the blood of the Guerrero name." Guerrero and Mysterio feuded for weeks, including a match at SummerSlam, where Vickie Guerrero accidentally cost Mysterio the match by knocking him off the top rope. The next week on SmackDown!, Vickie turned on Mysterio and sided with Guerrero, becoming his new "business manager".

Event

Before the event went live on pay-per-view, Jimmy Wang Yang defeated Sylvan in a dark match. The first match that aired was the non-title match between the Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms and Matt Hardy. After a back and forth match, Helms took control until Hardy was able to counter a Shining wizard with a Twist of Fate. This allowed him to pin Helms for the win.

Next was the WWE Tag Team Championship match between the champions Paul London and Brian Kendrick, with Ashley, and K.C. James and Idol Stevens, with Michelle McCool. London was pushed off the second turnbuckle to the outside early on, leading to the chllengers dominating, before London tagged in Kendrick. Kendrick pinned James after a shooting star press to win the match for his team.

The next match was Montel Vontavious Porter's (MVP) official debut. He wrestled Marty Garner in a squash match, and won by pinning him after a playmaker.

The fourth match was The Undertaker against the United States Champion Mr. Kennedy in a non-title match. Kennedy took control by hitting the Undertaker into an exposed turnbuckle and scoring a piledriver, but was unable to pin the Undertaker. Kennedy then brought the US title belt into the ring, but the Undertaker got hold of the belt and hit Kennedy with it, resulting in his disqualification. The Undertaker then Tombstoned both Kennedy and the referee, Charles Robinson.

The fifth match was the Falls Count Anywhere match between Rey Mysterio and Chavo Guerrero with Vickie Guerrero. Mysterio and Guerrero soon started fighting on the outside of the ring and through the crowd, before Mysterio managed to pin Guerrero after a 619 and Crossbody off a guardrail. The sixth match was the encounter between Regal and his opponent, who was revealed to be Chris Benoit. Benoit, who was returning after a five-month sabbatical, cut Regal open half way through the match after a headbutt. Benoit won by submission when Regal tapped out to the Crippler Crossface.

The main event was the fatal four-way match between the World Heavyweight Champion King Booker, and his three challengers Batista, Finlay and Bobby Lashley. An early team up saw Booker and Finlay take control early on, until Finlay attacked Booker and gained the advantage. The Little Bastard also interfered on Finlay's behalf. Lashley then dominated, before Booker took him out. At the end of the match, Batista took control, hitting a spinebuster on every competitor and a Batista Bomb on Finlay. Lashley then speared Batista before he could capitalize. As everyone was down, Booker then crawled over on top of Finlay and pinned Finlay to retain the title.
