The much maligned WWE creative team have got many things right in 2017, and it would be churlish to completely ignore them.
The Universal Title scene, for example - sans one or two well-founded complaints about the length of the matches - has been booked fairly well. They succeeded both in re-establishing Brock Lesnar as an unconquerable monster whilst generating some serious intrigue in his summer feuds with Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman.
On SmackDown, nobody can deny that Kevin Owens butting heads (in some cases, literally) with the McMahons made for an interesting angle, and even if the climax could yet disappoint us there was every reason to tune into Hell in a Cell in October.
NXT, of course, is NXT. The developmental territory has been renowned for its sensible, old-school booking since the day it came into our lives five years ago and - with the additions of, among others Drew McIntyre and Adam Cole - that was hardly likely to change in 2017.
Now that we've sang their praises, however, it's time to look at some of those moments during the last 12 months that the writers have got things badly wrong. Hey, that's balance for you.
