Best WWE Wrestlers of 2017 (Non-NXT)

4. The Miz

WWE

Similar to Alexa Bliss, The Miz does not have the best moves of all the entries in the list. To be honest with you, besides the Inverted Facelock Backbreaker and the surprising factor in his Stone Crushing Finale, his skills are just slightly above average, even when using some of Daniel Bryan’s moves as his own. But also, similar to Alexa Bliss, what he brought to the table was the amazing storytelling through each and every match. In 2017, Miz further perfected his portrayal as a cowardly heel who always looked for ways to cut corners and usually never won a match on his own. He has slowly turned into a heel version of Eddie Guerrero – lies, cheats, and steals to victory, yet is still beloved by the fans.

Recommended matches: The Miz vs Finn Balor vs Seth Rollins (RAW May 1st); Miztourage, Braun Strowman, and Kane vs Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Kurt Angle (Tables, Ladders, and Chairs), The Miz vs Roman Reigns (RAW November 20th).

3. Braun Strowman

WWE

2017 was The Wyatt Family’s former Black Sheep’s star-making year, thrusting him into main event territory. He ran rampage through everyone on the roster, even making the Universal Champion Brock Lesnar look like his little b*tch. The “Braun Strowman destroys big things” became a regular trope, especially after Strowman’s ambulance-flipping assault on Roman Reigns. 2017 sure looked great for the Monster Among Men (from both character and in-ring perspectives), but we can guarantee you, it will not be his best ever.

Recommended matches: Braun Strowman vs Sami Zayn (RAW January 2nd), Braun Strowman vs Big Show (RAW February 20), Braun Strowman vs Roman Reigns (RAW August 7th).
