Do you think that Slammy Awards Should be canceled ?

We are in December now and we didn't hear a single word about Slammy Awards 2012.

Do you think that WWE should cancel this show?

I remember in mid of 2011 everyone was talking about the show AND they were excited about it, but now? no one cared!

I think last year was good because Punk deserved to be Superstar of the year .. but now what?

Nothing new.. same thing every year, i really think they will cancel the show somehow.

What do you think ?

Meh. It's alright I guess. It produces a lot of cringe-worthy stuff like that awful rap battle between Michael Cole and Jim Ross but it's a fun little show nonetheless.

Re: Do you think that Slammy Awards Should be canceled ?

Not really. It's never the best show but the fact is, WWE isn't going to try around the Christmas season anyway, they're just going to put on a lazily booked show (come to think of it, that's every week) no matter what, so you might as well do an end of the year awards show, it makes sense and there's a few funny moments.

Ryback winning Breakout Star Of The Year and then announcing he's going to eat the trophy should be amusing. Plus, even if it's a meaningless Slammy, Punk getting his second straight Superstar Of The Year will be good, and it's really a shoe in that he'd have to win because nobody else in the company had a comparable 2012.

Re: Slammy Awards

I've never seen the '90s Slammy Awards, but I know I hate those new ones they did last few years ago. Such a stupid concept for wrestling, seriously.

Last year's Slammys was a borefest.

I'll always remember the slammy awards for Kane's return. That was a fucking awesome return... shame they did nothing with him.

Yes, they're meaningless and a complete waste of time.

Enough with vomit inducing cheese from WWE, I have no interest in Hornswoggle and Vickie Guerrero presenting the "Despicable Me" award whilst Hornswoggle makes fat jokes about a women who is in better shape than him. No fucking thank you.

Re: Do you think that Slammy Awards Should be canceled ?

I actually enjoyed them a few years ago. They were the best in the 90's... I hate the idea of having a guest host for the event (I love Dennis Miller but damn if that wasn't just horrible)

imo though stuff like this is good for a wrestling company. It leads to possible storylines (owen carrying around his slammys) and just in general gives the wrestling fan something connected to wrestling but not actually wrestling to enjoy. The writers have kinda killed a lot of it, was so much more fun when people ad-libbed.

I think they should keep the Slammys.

You can use the Slammy award as a kayfabe accomplishment to put a guy over, rather than hot shotting them towards a belt. For example, you could have Alex Riley win the "Holy Shit Moment of the Year" award for beating Dolph Ziggler back in August, and it gives him some momentum going forward. Or you can book a Fatal 4 Way between Wade Barrett, Kofi Kingston, Antonio Cesaro, and Santino Marella where the winner gets the "Best International Sensation" award or something like that.

Rock won't appear until 2013 anyways, so no real point in having any rumble hype before then(unless they have a CM Punk promo at Slammys calling out The Rock)
They should do taped Slammy's 24th & Agreed with Best Of 31st & 7th. My fav slammy moments Austin beats up Doink, Owen's speech, Sunny-Sable was great & Punk's speech
