Wrestlemania 34

We are more than halfway through 2018. The WWE have put out seven main roster pay-per-view so far. It is safe to say that the match quality has been subpar with only certain matches being pay-per-view worthy. Maybe because AJ Styles has not been at his best. (He still features in this list though.)

In fact, other than the top two matches, I had to search really hard to find out a match that could make this list. This is a testimony to the fact that there haven't been any memorable bouts that took place on PPV this year.


#3 Aj Styles(c) vs Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship- Summerslam

Match

This was a match that fans usually look forward to. But expectations were really low for this match because of Aj's disappointing series of matches with Shinsuke Nakamura. However, this match was far better than any of the matches with Nakamura, simply because it had a very good story.

Samoa Joe played the role of a despicable heel brilliantly. He got right into the action of playing mind games with the champion before the start of the match, by addressing AJ's wife. This set the tone for the whole match and made the crowd to really care for the match.

The match was slow in certain parts, but it picked up steam towards the end. Unlike most instances, the DQ finish was done really well, setting things up for a rematch.
