Best Moments

I’m not a huge fan of the Slammy Awards, so this review will be brief. Being the go home Raw before TLC, it did a great job of making Seth Rollins look like a serious threat to Cena. I like how sides were chosen at Survivor Series and are still loyal to each other afterwards. The show is still missing something ever since The Authority was taken off air, but having each former team member still feuding with each other is entertaining enough for now. And thank Foley (God) that the mystery GM storyline seems to have been dropped. The entire show pushed feuds for TLC along, but I have to say that Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt stood out the most with their segment. Overall, this episode was pretty decent for what it was. If you enjoy the Slammy Awards segments, then you probably had a better time than me.

There’s only one Slammy moment that I really want to discuss. It’s the reason why I don’t enjoy them in the first place. The Slammys are predetermined by the WWE regardless of if we play along and vote on their app. And it was never as evident as when Roman Reigns won superstar of the year award over Ambrose. And not only did he win, he was there in person to receive it. Ambrose was my first guess to win it, but Reigns was also up against Brock Lesnar, Daniel Bryan, Bray Wyatt, Seth Rollins, and John Cena. Truth be told, Reigns would stand a snowball’s chance in hell if the fans actually voted. And if we did actually hold the power to vote, I’m pretty sure the odds stacked up against him would make him reconsider actually appearing in person in case of the off chance he did win. The response he received wasn’t as big as it could have been if he would have showed up under different circumstances. And the audience may have had a few boos in the crowd. It is becoming too apparent that Hunter is going to force Reigns down our throats whether we like it or not. All I’m asking for is for him to at least be subtle with it.
