I've always been a fan of the Slammy Awards, even though I tend to disagree with the nominees and winners on a regular basis (but hey...same applies to the Academy Awards). To counteract this, I decided to create my own awards section, which you can find here. But still, the Slammy Awards are here, so it's time to list, predict, and then review.
Tell Me I Did Not See That Moment
NOMINEES: Jim Ross dancing, Santino almost winning the Royal Rumble, R-Truth getting "okey doked" by Little Jimmy, and the Miz impersonating the Rock
WINNER: Jim Ross dancing
REVIEW: Horrible, horrible way to start off the show. Anyone that isn't a common fan would see how ridiculous this is and shut it off. This award was pointless as well. I wish I didn't see it.
Holy &#@! Moment
NOMINEES: Sheamus power bombs Sin Cara at MITB, Orton RKOs Christian on the steel steps, Big Show & Mark Henry collapse the ring, Air Bourne off the ladder
WINNER: Henry and Show wreck the ring
REVIEW: Makes sense. No problem here.
Pipe Bomb of the Year
NOMINEES: Too many to name here, most of them being R-Truth's promos
WINNER: CM Punk
REVIEW: I hate how they don't even try to clarify these awards. What was this supposed to mean?
NOMINEES: Natalya's double Sharpshooter, Kelly Kelly wins the Divas title, Kharma attacks Michelle McCool, Beth Glam Slams Eve from the top rope
WINNER: Kelly Kelly
REVIEW: Lita's involvement was pointless in presenting this award and Kelly coming out to accept it was pointless as well, as she didn't even speak.
OMG Moment of the Year
NOMINEES: HHH tombstones Undertaker, Rock Bottom on John Cena, WWE walkout, CM Punk leaves Money in the Bank with the WWE title
REVIEW: What annoyed me the most about this was how HHH then doesn't bother with the Slammy at all (acting like he's above it) and then talks about how he ended the streak. No, you didn't. Such an egomaniac...
Trending Star of the Year
NOMINEES: Zack Ryder, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, Daniel Bryan
WINNER: Zack Ryder
REVIEW: Naturally, Ryder should have won it, so I've got nothing to complain about there. I'm curious, though, where does Cody Rhodes come in here? Bryan trends a lot, Ziggler and Ryder have big presences on Twitter, but am I wrong or does Cody not?
Game Changer of the Year
NOMINEES: HHH fires Vince McMahon, Edge retires, Kevin Nash attacks CM Punk, Rock and Cena agree to their WrestleMania match
WINNER: Rock and Cena
REVIEW: Honestly, meh. They just randomize these awards with no explanation and you can really just replace all the names of the awards with "something we want to talk about at the moment award" and then have each person currently involved in a storyline come out to cut a promo. Shame.
A-Lister of the Year
NOMINEES: Snooki, Cee Lo Green, Hugh Jackman, The Muppets
REVIEW: Why did Vickie present this award while Otunga presented the Trending Star? Wasn't he "A-List" David Otunga? Oh WWE Creative, you're fucking retarded tonight - or Vince and those above you are forcing these horrible decisions upon you. As far as the winner of this award, anything that makes me see Snooki, I hate.
Superstar of the Year
NOMINEES: The Miz, John Cena, CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio, Mark Henry, Randy Orton
WINNER: CM Punk
REVIEW: I had predicted that they'd give it to Del Rio as I thought they would try to build him up for the pay-per-view, but this isn't a shocking result.
No Diva of the Year award? No Match of the Year? No Reaction of the Year like they were teasing? Breakout Star? Jesus Christ, WWE.
Here's a list of supplemental awards they added on WWE.com, which I won't be reviewing, as my comment for all of them is "fucking ridiculous".
Outstanding Achievement in Muppet Resemblance
The Pee-Wee Herman Bowtie Award
WINNER: David Otunga
Most Predictable Outcome of the Year
WINNER: Kevin Nash powerbombs Santino
Guess Who's Back Return of the Year
WINNER: The Rock
Double Vision Moment of the Year
WINNER: Sin Cara and Sin Cara
T-Shirt of the Year
WINNER: CM Punk's "Best in the World"
WWE.com Exclusive of the Year
WINNER: John Laurinaitis congratulates CM Punk
Most Regrettable Ring Attire of the Year
WINNER: Michael Cole dressed as Triple H
Critter Moment of the Year
WINNER: The mouse that ran by Del Rio on Raw
Superstar Transformation of the Year
WINNER: Zack Ryder
