Orton Vs Wyatt.

When an angle destroys whatever credibility was left with two great superstars; it's just woeful and disappointing.

James Ellsworth, a man, won the first ever Women's MITB match. Way to make history.

The Angle - Jason Jordan thing is a grenade of awesomeness just waiting to have the pin pulled.

Sister Abigail was excruciating, but at least it was short lived.

Mahal on the other hand, was not only awful, but dominated months and months of television...until the Prince That was Promised, AJ Styles, delivered us all from the long night.

Jinder Mahal's domination of the WWE Championship did no one any favours, went on for far too long and actually hurt their business in India if I recall correctly. Just one long, hot mess.

The Jason Jordan thing is just way too over the top. Just a cartoonish level of forced sympathy. I would have taken Jordan more seriously if he were a student of Angle's, rather than his "son." I wouldn't be surprised if WWE revealed this huge twist in the near future that Angle wasn't ever Jason Jordan's father to begin with. The angle so far hasn't really done either any favors.

That's whats going to be the beauty of it when he becomes a sniveling little ingrate in about 5 weeks.

While it's stupid, I can actually understand what they were doing when they made Jinder Mahal the WWE Champion. They shocked people, put the belt on a foreign champ in hopes to boost the market of his heritage, and tried someone new. It failed, but at least there was somewhat sound logic behind their thought processes.

On the other hand, they hype a Womens match as being a big, gender-equality moment, only to have a man win the match. No one can see the logic behind that, and it arguably set back the notion of Female superstars being equals. It was so bad they literally undid the match 2 days later.

Therefore, the answer has to be James Ellsworth.

The worst moment, for me, is a moment that makes me cringe to this day. It was a pathetically desperate attempt to make a gimmick work, in an age where that type of attempt couldn't possibly work.

Jason Jordan being revealed as Kurt Angle's son is the sort of kayfabe that's too kayfabe for kayfabe.

For one, Jason Jordan wasn't that interesting a character in the WWE. He's one of those "himself/herself" gimmicks that only really works when you've had a series of five star matches on your resume. For fans like me, seeing him announced as a surprise anything would be a letdown.

Do we not live in the Information Age where Google is a thing? If you're going to endear someone unto the fans as the son of a more popular performer, there has to be some string of truth to it. I know that prowrestling is fantasy, but that reeked of the whole Lance Von Erich thing. I like to see things like performers dialing their intensity up to 11 and showing real passion in how they play the crowd, watching clips of Jason Jordan acting all "HOORAY! I finally know who my real Dad is!" didn't sell anything to me.

We're a weird bunch. Somehow we play along when Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt are possessed by spirits, but when one guy claims to be another guy's dad, suddenly that's too ridiculous in the age of technology.

Not voting for an angle that hasn't run its course. As far as we know, Jason Jordan will become one of the best crybaby heels in WWE thanks to this angle. If we're willing to cut demon wrestlers and multidimensional superstars some slack, we should do the same for Kurt's kid.

Voting for the Women's Money In The Bank. It'll be remembered for a guy who's no longer employed in WWE winning it.
