There are copiousness of choices when perplexing to establish WWE’s best matches of 2017. While a large main-event matches during shows like WrestleMania 33 and No Mercy didn’t accurately deliver, there were several noted universe championship matches that mount out.
It’s no warn that AJ Styles had a palm in some of a year’s best singles matches, and Brock Lesnar scored a final pinfall of arguably a tip dual matches of a final 12 months. John Cena, all 3 members of The Shield and Braun Strowman also done a cut.
Let’s take a demeanour during a 5 best WWE matches of 2017. NXT matches were not authorised to make a list.
5) AJ Styles vs. John Cena — WWE Championship Match (Royal Rumble)
Styles and Cena set a bar unspeakably high with their compare at SummerSlam 2016, and they scarcely matched that bid during a 2017 Royal Rumble. The wrestlers traded finishers before Cena eventually strike uninterrupted Attitude Adjustments to tie Ric Flair with a 16th universe pretension reign. It was substantially Cena’s only great compare of a year, and it was a exclamation indicate on an implausible initial year in WWE for Styles.
4) Dean Ambrose Seth Rollins vs. Cesaro Sheamus — Raw Tag Team Championship Match (WWE No Mercy)
On a PPV that featured John Cena vs. Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman, this was simply a card’s best match. It’s easy to forget how good a members of The Shield work together, though Ambrose and Rollins reminded everybody only how most chemistry they have really quickly. The compare competence be best remembered for withdrawal Cesaro bloodied and blank a few teeth. Rollins and Ambrose strike their finishes in period to keep a titles they won during SummerSlam.
3) The Usos vs. The New Day — SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match (WWE Battleground)
The Usos and The New Day simply had a best tab group argument of 2017, and Battleground was substantially a stage of their best match. The rest of a matches on a PPV had small possibility to compare a fad of this one that non-stop a show. Xavier Woods scarcely leaped opposite a whole ring to govern a tightrope bend dump and give The New Day a SmackDown Tag Team Championships for a initial time.
2) Brock Lesnar vs. AJ Styles — Champion vs. Champion Match (Survivor Series)
If we indispensable any some-more explanation that Styles is WWE’s best-in-ring performer, demeanour no serve than this match. After spending a initial partial of this compare removing rag-dolled by a WWE Universal Champ, Styles targeted Lesnar’s leg and done it seem plausible that he could indeed kick a former UFC star. Give credit to Lesnar for offered his damage so most that it sparked conjecture that he competence indeed be hurt. When Lesnar delivered an F5 to pin Styles, all it did was leave fans wanting a rematch.
1) Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe vs. Braun Strowman — Fatal 4-Way Universal Championship Match (SummerSlam)
It’s tough for matches with this most hype to strech expectations, though that’s accurately what a SummerSlam categorical eventuality did. The 4 biggest badasses in WWE kick a ruin out of any other for 20 minutes, and each wrestler looked clever once Lesnar pinned Reigns purify to keep his belt. Strowman reached a new turn when he manhandled Lesnar and put him by a announcers’ table, and Joe continued to infer that he’s some-more than honourable of carrying a universe pretension run.
