Just like the Oscars, sometimes certain Slammys aren’t deemed important enough to make it to television. Unlike the Oscars, sometimes certain awards aren’t deemed important enough to make it onto WWE.com. Because we leave no stone unturned, we have decided to bring to light the unsung heroes of the WWE. These are the Supplementary Slammys!
The Slammy for “overuse of a pop culture phrase”of the year goes to:
Presented by: Michael Cole
Of course Michael Cole would present this. It has been very easy to get sick of the phrase “Twerkin”, as it did not take long at all for this to make it into news broadcasts and parent-teacher programs that try to relate to kids. Like “Word Up”, “Crunk” and “Old School” before it, this word had the coolness sucked dry from it faster than Fandango-ing. Unlike “Word Up”, “Crunk” and “Old School”, this is an awful, awful, awful thing and deserves to be shot dead. “Twerkin” is not something new and existed long before Miley was a twinkle in her dad’s achey-breaky eye. The only difference between what strippers do at work and “Twerkin” is that the twelve year old from the YouTube video posted on your Facebook wall didn’t generate enough hits to monetize their content. Keep fighting the good fight WWE.
Accepted by: Anyone member of the roster over the age of forty-five. Seriously, anyone will do.
The Slammy for “WWE staff member of the year” goes to:
Dr. Michael J. Sampson
Presented by: Zack Ryder with a plate full of food from catering
When I first heard his name I was really disappointed he wasn’t a muscular superhero psychologist with long green hair. Truth be told, a year ago I barely knew who he was. If I saw him walking down the street, I wouldn’t recognize him. One year later and I wouldn’t recognize him unless he was wearing a WWE black polo. I see him retweeted on twitter, being briefly featured in angles, referred to by name and even getting a line of dialogue. The fact that he has had more screen time on RAW than Yoshi Tatsu means he has truly earned his Slammy….that and saving Jerry’s life.
Accepted by: Sandra the Seamstress, who steals the Slammy saying it is rightfully hers. This starts a four month feud that culminates at Wrestlemania, bumping the mixed gender tag match off the card.
The Slammy for “The Milford School of Refereeing WWE Official of the year” goes to:
Not Marc Harris
Presented by: Natalya
I don’t care who gets it. Break it into pieces so that every referee not named Marc Harris gets some (shouldn’t be too hard, it’s probably chocolate on the inside.) Remember that awkward Natalya/AJ Lee finish a while back? Where Natalya had to force Marc Harris to raise her hand in victory when the match wasn’t over yet? Maybe Harris made the right call that night, maybe not. That’s not the issue. It’s the response of “a Great ref would pick that up & I did” and “A lot of ‘know it alls’ think they know the rules, but they don’t. That’s why I’m professional cause I’m the best”. When the world thinks you royally screwed up on TV, being a pompous, super defensive prick may not be the way to go. Just saying.
Accepted by: Scott Armstrong with a hacksaw
The Slammy for “Meme-Face of the year” goes to:
Big Show’s “I’ve had it” angry-sad face
Presented by: Sin Cara
Big Show looks like a kabuki performer with no makeup. Come to think of it, Knucklehead would have been amazing if it was adapted for Kabuki theater.
Accepted by: Big Show. He’s crying.
The Slammy for “Underused performer of the year” goes to:
Presented by: Triple H
I defy you to find someone who was used less than this man. I really like JTG. He did most of the heavy lifting when it came to in ring work with Cryme Tyme and his work as a singles competitor on NXT Redemption was surprisingly fun. Hell, I saw the man in the ring with ol’ Michael McGillicutty at Wrestlemania Axxess and he worked the (minimal) crowd to be one of the most over guys in there. Was he ever going to be a main event player? Probably not, but he at least could’ve had a chance at the mid card in the Zack Ryder position. However, once the WWE decided they had nothing for him, they stripped him of his street wear and kept him off TV. They didn’t change his character, they just took it away. Now seeing JTG wrestle is like seeing the Loch Ness Monster, I know it happens, but it’s near impossible to prove. At least Yoshi Tatsu shows up backstage now and then.
Accepted by: Triple H, cause they told JTG to stay home that night. Hunter unwraps and eats the chocolate
The Slammy for “Mike Adamle Memorial Commentator/Backstage Interviewer of the Year” goes to:
Presented by: Alex Riley
Oh, Renee. She is the best interviewer they have, and has quickly put herself right below the Gene Okerlunds of the world as an actual character with value, AND she’s the first female commentator in WWE history with her work in NXT. All while not trying to be “one of the boys”, which is to say pleasing to listen to and genuinely interested in the product. She didn’t come off the model assembly line and get randomly stuck in WWE until a better deal comes along, she knows the product from her being a lifelong fan, and her work with Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas on Aftermath makes us appreciate her all the more. She was robbed by not being nominated for Diva of the Year, but her career is still young and still has to go through the Sami Zayn love story angle that millions of fans have already written about in fan fiction. In five years time she will have joined the Smackdown Commentary team.
Accepted by: Renee Young. Alex Riley congratulates and hugs her just a little bit too long to be comfortable
