5 worst PPV main events in 2017
WWE presented 16 live pay-per-view events in 2017 with the final one of the year being Clash of Champions. Whilst the main event of Clash of Champions saw AJ Styles take on Jinder Mahal in arguably the match of the night, it seems that not all of the main events on pay-per-view this year have been the same calibre.
Sometimes the company put forward a match for the main event of the show that isn't the right choice. It seems that this has happened a number of times this year, which has seen many fans leaving the events unhappy because that's the final piece of action they are able to see.
Here are some of the worst pay-per-view main events that WWE chose over the past twelve months.
#5 Survivor Series Traditional Elimination Match - Survivor Series
Survivor Series as a whole wasn't a great event for WWE, but there were chances throughout the night where WWE could have saved the show.
The elimination match was one of these moments, but it seems that WWE went with a tease of a match between Kurt Angle and Triple H as well as one between Shane McMahon and The Game, but more than a month after the event, neither of these teases have been capitalised on.
This would have been the perfect time for a younger star to have benefitted from that exposure, but once again Triple H was brought into the match to steal the show and the spotlight. With many of the former NXT stars eliminated early on, there was only Braun Strowman who was able to take anything away from this match as many fans reacted negatively to the event due to the ending of the match and finish of the pay-per-view as a whole.
Luckily, Triple H walked into the entrance screen on the way out of the arena and that seemed to balance out karma.
