  2. Jinder Mahal vs. Randy Orton 5
  3. Bayley vs. Alexa Bliss 5
  4. Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura 4
  5. Sebastian vs. Pastor William Eaver 3
  6. Baron Corbin vs. Kalisto 1
  7. Progress vs. British Strong Style 1
  8. Drew Galloway vs. EVOLVE 1


Due in part to their stunning failure at Wrestlemania and turning months of build into a shambolic PPV match Wyatt vs. Orton is the worst feud of 2017. Honourable mentions go out to Orton’s other awful feud with Jinder Mahal. Meanwhile Bayley vs. Alexa Bliss also gets a look in, thanks to how badly it went for Bayley. She was put in matches that completely exposed her limitations. The kendo stick on a pole match being the prime example. Bayley came out of this feud looking so bad that it could have permanently damaged her worth on the main roster. That’s a bad feud.
