For the first time since 2015, WWE is handing out Slammy Awards this year. They’ve decided that the occasion merits a Network special, hosted by the one-and-only R-Truth with celebrity presenters like Method Man & Snooki. For some reason, they also decided it should air in The Bump’s usual Wednesday morning time slot, but no matter - Cageside has you covered!
We got the party started early yesterday by telling you who our staff picked from the nominees in each of the ten categories announced ahead of time. You can read about that here. In this post, we’ll update the winners and tell you about any other fun stuff that happens during the stream as it airs starting at 10 a.m. Eastern on the free version of WWE Network and embedded above.
