Just your typical hyping of the event and the Slammy Awards tomorrow night.
Brodus Clay won Best Dancer. I disagree, as I enjoy The Funkadactyls a bit more.
Charlie Sheen won Social Media Ambassador of the year.
Jerry Lawler won...something that I didn't really pay attention to. Probably comeback of the year?
"FEED ME MORE!" won Crowd Chant of the year.
These awards are atrociously bad.
Upset of the year goes to Daniel Bryan winning at Royal Rumble against Big Show and Mark Henry.
Diva of the year goes to AJ.
Worst moment of the year should go to this crap.
Divas Battle Royal
Rosa is eliminated by Natalya. Cameron is eliminated by Tamina next. Aksana eliminated by Layla.
I'll be honest here, these outfits aren't really sexy. They are goofy as hell.
