With the year about to come to an end, here we look at the top five superstars of 2017
2017 has been a great year in WWE. The year, as like any other, has seen many ups and down. We have seen a number of classic matches this year -- some name wise and some quality wise.
Many superstars showed what they are capable of if given the chance. Since we are just one month away from bidding adieu to 2017, let's take a look at who are the top five superstars of who created a buzz throughout 2017.
#5 Jinder Mahal
Although not the most popular choice in the list, Jinder Mahal has seen the whole landscape change upside down. From losing to Mojo Rowley to holding the WWE championship for 170 days, Mahal has had a fantastic year. "The Modern Day Maharaja" lost to Mojo Rowley on April 11 edition of Smackdown Live. On April 18, he became the no. 1 contender for the WWE championship.
If this sudden push didn't surprise everyone, he then went on to beat Randy Orton at Backlash PPV. He defended his title against "The Viper", twice. Not only that, he defeated AJ Styles on May 16th edition of Smackdown Live. He even defended his title against Mr Money in the Bank, Baron Corbin.
He would then defend his title against Shinsuke Nakamura, twice. Although he hasn't won all his matches clean, he won them nevertheless. Mahal's reign finally came to an end when AJ Styles defeated him on Nov 7 edition of Smackdown Live. Despite that, he is a strong contender for Superstar of the year.
