- As noted, WWE recently published their list of the best matches of 2017 in a new article published on their official website earlier this week, with A.J. Styles vs. John Cena from the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view coming in first place. ESPN.com published a similar list this weekend, listing the best wrestling matches of 2017 from multiple promotions. The following WWE matches from this year were included in their list:
Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Universal Championship (SummerSlam), Brock Lesnar vs. AJ Styles (Survivor Series), Pete Dunne vs. Tyler Bate (NXT TakeOver: Chicago), The Velveteen Dream vs. Aleister Black (NXT TakeOver: WarGames), #DIY vs. The Revival vs. Authors of Pain (NXT TakeOver: Orlando), and The Usos vs. The New Day (Hell in a Cell).
- This weekend, WWE legend Hulk Hogan hung out with former two-division UFC World Champion Georges St-Pierre while at an event in Miami, Florida. Hogan joked that the two could be the future WWE World Tag-Team Champions in a tweet he posted (see below).
It's worth noting that Jim Ross stated in a recent interview that he would be "shocked" if Hogan didn't resurface in WWE at some point in 2018.
