A few weeks back, WWE’s weekly hangout show The Bump announced their first ever awards... The Bumpys (get it?)!
Fans could vote in five People’s Choice categories, and the winners of those were announced on the episode which debuted this morning (July 29).
There aren’t a ton of surprises, and there’s one which may #trigger folks who are sick of The Golden Role Models winning things...
