Last updated

WWE fans are in for a treat as the company has unveiled a nostalgic cold open for the upcoming WWE NXT No Mercy 2023 event.

This throwback is sure to evoke memories for many, as it draws inspiration from the iconic Nintendo 64 game, WWF No Mercy.

As the event approaches, WWE has decided to take fans on a journey back in time. The cold open showcases a vintage console powering up, reminiscent of the days when the Nintendo 64 was the gaming console of choice for many. But this isn’t just any game booting up; it’s a modern-day rendition of the classic WWF No Mercy game.

The familiar load screen is present, but with a twist. Instead of the original WWF superstars, this version features the NXT logo and the names of current NXT stars. It’s a delightful blend of the old and the new, with the essence of the past and the vibrancy of the present.
