Hiya gang! Was thinking for a new thread to make a best (and worst) of 2008 in WWE but then lo and behold, USA wanted another 3 hour RAW so they brought back the SLAMMY AWARDS from 1997!

http://www.wwe.com/shows/raw/articles/7963326/8782104

Ah yes when there was more comedy than you even see now. Some was badly cheesy but I still loved how it was sometimes used like with the TWO TIME WINNER, the late, great Owen Hart.

So choose who you'd pick for the following categories:

To be awarded on RAW on Dec.8th

Superstar of the Year
Match of the Year
OMG Moment of the Year
Diva of the Year
"DAMN!" Moment of the Year
Tag Team of the Year
Best Musical Performance
Best Finishing Maneuver
Extreme Moment of the Year
Couple of the Year

To be given out on the website

Breakout Star of the Year
Announcer of the Year
Best WWE.com Exclusive
Best Impersonation

As for me I'll give you too my choices below of whom I want to win and whom I think will win with how WWE thinks:

Superstar of the Year
WHO I WANT TO WIN: Edge, he carried some great work with the Undertaker in one of the best feuds of the year and is simply the #1 true heel in wrestling.
WHO WILL WIN: John Cena as he's the WWE poster child and their top merchandise draw.

Match of the Year
WHO I WANT TO WIN: Ric Flair vs. HBK at Mania, not for quality in ring but shear emotion of Flair's final match.
WHO WILL WIN: Jericho vs. HBK Non Sanctioned Match, also a good choice as they really pushed each other well this year, and both were the hardest workers of the year I found.

OMG Moment of the Year
WHO I WANT AND WILL WIN: Jeff Hardy jumping off the Titantron onto Randy Orton. When you jump from that high, OMG only starts to describe that.

Diva of the Year
WHO I WANT TO WIN: Mickie James, who is one of the few good in ring Divas who is also lovely on the eyes...still thinking about her Lara Croft cosplay...
WHO WILL WIN: Kelly Kelly or Maria as both are being pushed hard. I'd prefer Kelly Kelly in this case as she's getting better in ring while Maria is not.

"DAMN!" Moment of the Year
WHO I WANT TO WIN: The WWE writing staff. Sometimes the stuff they came up I thought this word exactly and not in a good way, particularly anything Stephanie McMahon thinks up or says of late...
WHO WILL WIN: The Cyber Sunday clusterfest dance to get everyone a paycheque, punctuated with Ron "DAMN" Simmons saying his eternal liner now. I sure hope he gets royalty cheques for that word.

Tag Team of the Year
WHO I WANT AND WILL WIN: John Morrison and the Miz. Easily looking great no matter where you put them, and this coming from a Miz hater. Morrison is something special and will get a singles push from time to time but shines in tags as well. On an aside I'm glad I won his signature for the old collector card game (along with my cherished Eddie Guerrero one, VIVA LA RAZA!)

Best Musical Performance
WHO I WANT AND WILL WIN: Santino Marella's rap on RAW. He's so funny, a shining moment on RAW for REAL comedy (Canadian style to boot!) and he can shine if he wins a Slammy or two to brag about it like Owen did so well long ago. You've been served!

Best Finishing Maneuver
WHO I WANT AND WILL WIN: Evan Bourne's Shooting Star Press. It's not a new move but simply done SO WELL. Compare it to how RVD did his Frog Splash with such height.

Extreme Moment of the Year
WHO I WANT TO WIN: First off this seems too similar to the OMG and DAMN awards so I'm only guessing since there are no descriptions this means a hardcore moment, so I'll go to ECW (what's left of it) and say...dang...can't THINK OF ONE NOW ON ECW which isn't extreme at all! OK let's guess and say when Big Show tossed boxer Floyd Mayweather onto his posse and other wrestlers. It was a rocky and unbalanced feud due to booking but that moment was done well.
WHO WILL WIN: A friend reminded me of the Undertaker going through 4 tables against Edge at One Night Stand in the TLC match. That's a better one and Taker sure working hard even at his age.

Couple of the Year
WHO I WANT TO WIN: Glamarella as Santino and Beth Phoenix made for a hilarious couple.
WHO WILL WIN: William Regal and Layla since he's the current IC champ and to further push the gritty Brit.

Breakout Star of the Year
WHO I WANT TO WIN: Evan Bourne, who despite his size and the usual WWE preference for muscle heads has shone and glad he's still being shown on TV from time to time while injured
WHO WILL WIN: CM Punk who was given the chance to run with the big RAW belt after cashing in and should STILL be there, not going for the lower belts like the Tag and IC, though he's still solid in ring and keeping relevant despite the booking.

Announcer of the Year
WHO I WANT AND WILL WIN: Matt Striker and Todd Grisham. Didn't see that one coming? Just take some time to watch and hear them. Todd found his niche FINALLY while Striker is a future announcing star who was so-so since coming from ROH to WWE, then from wrestling to managing to his current spot. JR himself put him over this week in his blog calling him a wrestling nerd who gets in some great obscure references while calling a solid match. Even Vince seems to not shout at him to change his style like say, JR, Mick Foley and certainly THE WORST EVER in Mike Adamle. So kudos and hoping Striker gets the nod and future jobs calling matches for the WWE!


Best WWE.com Exclusive
WHO I WANT AND WILL WIN: Santino's Casa. I think this meant the internet segments/skits and I found the silly feud over the Dirt Sheet and Word Up hurting their value. Santino again is too funny to pass up!

Best Impersonation
WHO I WANT TO WIN: Charlie Haas doing the Mr. Perfect homage. OK we know this is simply to get an award to his stuff even when it's very hit and miss.
WHO WILL WIN: Charlie Haas doing one of the other impressions that wasn't as funny.

OK so have fun posting your BEST OF 2008 thoughts and picks here! Take care!

Well thought I'd give my two cents.

Superstar of the Year- I'd go for Edge or Y2J as both their work as heel's as been superb .But like trigun wouldn't be surprised to see Cena win it or possibly Jeff Hardy.
Match of the Year.A very tough one to pick and after a bit of thought proably going with HBK vs Flair at WM 24.Other contenders Edge -Taker at WM 24,ONS and Summer Slam,Y2J0-HBK at Unforgiven,No Mercy.
Diva of the Year-Mickie James as she and Beth Phoniex carroied the Womens divison on RAW this year.
OMG moment-Jeff Hardy swanton off the titiatron onto Randy Orton pre Royal Rumble.
DAM moment-Edge getting busted by Vickie after the wedding
Tag Team of the year-Miz and Morrison
Best Musical performance.Rapping Santino
Extreme MOment-Taker going through 4 tables in TLC at One Night Stand vs Edge
Best Finsher- GTS just ahead of Swanton bomb
Breakout Star- Tied between CM Punk and Evan Bournne
Best Couple-Hard to chose between Glamrella and the power mad couple Edge and his beard oops I meant Edge and Vickie
Announcer of the Year-Matt Striker
WWE Exclusive- Dirt Sheet
Best Impersonation-Hass Hogan


Also thought of a couple of other catergories for the years best.

Best Feud- Y2J-JBK just ahead of Edge-Taker

Am still in shock there is no HBK/Jericho in the Match of the Year (MOTY) choices! The Rumble is not THAT great and already had the one nominee with Cena's retun. So far about right for the rest. If you see my profile still taking a while to type as I await new glasses so check this link for them http://www.wwe.com/shows/raw/slammyawards08/ and thanks to my friend Andy for posting the categories! Ta!
