2017 is drawing to its end and WWE has had a great year nonetheless. A number of top-quality matches, high-intensity feuds coupled with the tremendous rise of NXT have made WWE a much better product.

However, WWE, as usual, was not always right in booking and programming which was frustrating for the WWE Universe. Fans have not always got what they have wanted, and WWE has been notorious for making the fans frustrated.

This year we witnessed some of the most unimaginable things in wrestling. For instance, Goldberg and Bray Wyatt, both were the champions of WWE at the same time! Imagine saying this to someone five years ago!

In this article, we list out some major screwups by WWE, which put a blemish on a splendid year in professional wrestling.


#5: Bray Wyatt's resurgence

Bray Wyatt had a career resurgence in 2017, which was a delight to watch but ended way too soon for anyone's liking. The cult leader has a gimmick which should be captivating audiences every week, but due to his ghastly inconsistent booking, it has struggled to catch the audience's attention.

However, a surprising victory at Elimination Chamber followed up by a clean as a whistle victory over AJ Styles and John Cena led many to believe that his time had finally come. An engaging rivalry with Randy Orton followed, which culminated in a highly disappointing fashion at Wrestlemania.

Ever since he was drafted to RAW, Wyatt has struggled to find his feet in the crowded main-event scene. His stock has fallen once again and he has been relegated to the mid-card. If Wyatt had stayed on Smackdown as a champion, things could have been way different for both the "Eater of Worlds" and Smackdown Live.
