Does anyone really think that WWE meant for Jordan being Angle's son to lead to a heel turn? Surely not.

But if that mess is handled properly, we could be back here in a year's time with "Jason Jordan Is Kurt Angle's Son" as a nominee for Best Angle of 2018, although I would doubt Vince would get behind something that seems far more like a mistake than a subtle plan.

Exactly. I'm more inclined to believe that creative really did think that this angle would help get Jason Jordan get off the ground as a face, and are just rolling with the heel turn now. But who knows?

They'll never admit it but I think the unnecessary push Jason Jordan got from the "son" angle was undoubtedly meant to lead to a heel turn. There's no way anyone in WWE Creative thought the fans would support this. It also an angle that is working, Jordan is despised and people just want him to be off their tv.

Is Jinder winning the title an angle?

Randy v Bray was actually very good, the payoff just sucked ass.

Shane McMahon is fine, he's getting tiring but hopefully it is going somewhere. I'm not really sure what his angle Is?

Jinder v Nakamura wasn't so much of an angle either. I remember Nakamura earning a title shot or two and Jinder being kind of racist.

Ellsworth winning the Women's MitB wasn't much of an angle as much as it was a moment leading to the rematch.

Sister Abigail was absolutely an angle and failed in every way. She was this unseen entity that was dug up and burned or something. Then she existed again and kind of appeared in promos which was supposed to lead to a match that never happened and was forgotten to her having HPV or something and now she is mentioned again by a dude doing the nutty character much better than Wyatt.

Vote Abigail.

You know it's been a good year when all of us are arguing over the worst the WWE has to offer.

I had to go with Jinder Mahal winning the WWE Championship. For me, this was something that was determined retroactively as I wanted to see how Jinder would do for a while as champion before I hailed or condemned it. I didn't really say or voice an opinion on it until 3 months or so into his run because enough time had passed to leave no doubt that Jinder just wasn't cut out to be champion; I was hoping that maybe there was more to him than we knew, that being champion would be an opportunity for Jinder to show what he's really made of but what he's really made of is mediocrity. He's lousy in the ring, lousy on the mic, lousy as a character and I have no idea what Vince was thinking keeping the title on him for 6 months.
