WWE Monday Night Raw 12/8/15…The Slammy Awards

Tonight, 6 days away from TLC, we will see John Cena face The Big Show, after Show’s turn against Team Cena at Survivor Series.

Michael Cole and JBL welcome us to the show, and we also will have The Slammy Awards.

Raw is now.

Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show, and he brings out tonight’s host, Seth Green.

Seth is a true wrestling fan, so he is a good choice to host The Slammys.

The Miz and Mizdow come out to interrupt Seth telling us the only way to vote is use the WWE App.

Miz brings up Seth hasn’t used him for any Hollywood projects, and he is such an A-lister.

Seth brings up the only A-Lister here is Mizdow.

The Miz presents the first award for tonight.  The This is Awesome moment of the year.

Nominees:

A.  The Yes Movement

B.  Stephanie McMahon being arrested, with Brie Bella pressing charges.

C.  Sting costing The Authority the match at Survivor Series.

D.  Hulk Hogan, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and The Rock all in the ring at the same time at Wrestlemania 30.

We will find out the results after this match….

Dolph Ziggler Vs Seth Rollins.

Rollins wins with a Curbstomp, after the J & J Security distract Ziggler.

Seth Green comes out to hand out the award.

Winner:  Sting debuting in WWE

And of course, Sting is not there to accept the award (Is this going to be a trend here?).  Seth Rollins comes out, and asks what is so great about Sting?  He costs him the chance to win his biggest match of his career, so on behalf of Sting, Rollins will take the award.

The New Day are out next.

There were other winners announced on the pre show, that is featured on WWE.com.

Stardust Vs Kofi is up now

Kofi wins with a flying cross body.

At TLC, we will see The New Day Vs Gold and Stardust.

John Laurinaitis is back to present Surprise Return of the Year.

John wants the return of People Power.  He is throwing his hat to the role of General Manager.

Surprise Return of the Year Nominees:

A.  Hulk Hogan

B.  Batista

C.  The Rock

D.  The Ultimate Warrior

I hope Warrior wins this, please vote for Warrior.

Vote now on the WWE App.

Winner:

The Ultimate Warrior

No speech, we immediately go backstage.  Seth Rollins is celebrating his victory with his goons, when Paul Heyman shows up.

Heyman is here to represent his client, Brock Lesnar.  Heyman tells Seth that if he gets passed Cena this Sunday night….

If?  It’s when he gets passed Cena, and he will go right after the WWE World Title, but he will do it when Brock least expects it.

Heyman tells Rollins Brock remembers when he curbstomped him, but this isn’t about the reigning, and defending WWE World Champion, this is about Rollins making sure John Cena is the past, this Sunday.

We get a treat, and see the NXT Divas Champion, Charlotte.

Her WWE debut against Natalya, is next.

This is all to promote NXT:  Revolution, this Thursday night on WWE Network.  Charlotte will defend her Divas Title against Sasha Banks.  We will also see Sami Zayn go one on one against Adrian Neville, for the World Title.

Natalya wins in surprising fashion, with a rollup to counter the Figure Four.

I have no clue why we must see the Divas Champion lose, here when she is promoting the upcoming NXT show.

Santino Marella is here to announce the nominees for the OMG Shocking Moment of the Year.

OMG Shocking Moment of the Year nominees:

A.  Seth Rollins turning on The Shield.

B.  Nikki Bella turning on Brie.

C.  Bray Wyatt sings with the C-Nation.

D.  The Streak is conquered.

Tonight, John Cena Vs The big Show, but first…

Winner:

The Streak is Conquered.

Paul Heyman accepts the award for Brock.

Ladies and gentlemen, his name is Paul Heyman.  And he is the one behind the one, at 21-1.  He earned that distinction when The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania streak was conquered by his client, Brock Lesnar.

Bray Wyatt shows up.

Bray will never forget the first time he saw her.  She was sitting in this rocking chair near the apple tree.  That was her chair.

We see that rocking chair torn up last week, by Dean Ambrose.

Dean Ambrose took something away from him, something that will never be replaced.  So he thought he should take something from him.

We see from last Smackdown, when Wyatt rammed a chair into Ambrose’s throat.

Bray issues a warning to Ambrose, if he gets close to him, he will burn him.  And when he climbs up the ladder this Sunday, he will stand over Dean’s body.

Tables, ladder, and chairs….Oh my.

We hear sirens, and an ambulance.  I am guessing it’s Ambrose ready to get him some.

And he is.

And he has some “toys” with him….namely tables, ladders, and chairs.

Ambrose carries them to the ring, throwing a chair right at Wyatt.  Bray tries to leave, and Dean tells him to take a good look at the ambulance, because that is the only way Wyatt leaves this Sunday.  He will become a monster and will eat him alive.

Seth Green joins us.

The person to present the Diva of the year is Jerry “The King” Lawler.

WWE Diva of the year nominees:

A.  Brie Bella

B.  Paige

C.  AJ Lee

D.  Nikki Bella

WWE Divas winner:

AJ Lee

We get CM Punk chants.

AJ has redefined the term diva over the years.  You can be a nerd, a tomboy, and still be a diva.  She hopes Baylee, Paige, Sasha.  But she is still the queen, and will get her Divas Title.

Renee Young is with John Cena.  John reminds us Vince issuing a challenge to the WWE wrestlers to step up, and he knows Seth Rollins is listening.  He will step up this Sunday.  But he knows he can’t pin him.  Rollins isn’t man enough to make Cena tap.  So it’s time for Cena to step up.  If John goes through a table, his shot at the WWE Championship is done.  So tonight, he will put a 500 pound man through his shoulders, and slam him down.  Because his time is not done.

Erick Rowan is in the ring, next.

It’s Rowan Vs Luke Harper, now.

Harper is DQ’d using a ladder, so Rowan gets some revenge, by using the steel stairs.

Those two are getting acquainted with their weapons of choice, for this Sunday.

Naomi is backstage, with The Uso’s celebrating their Slammy Awards.

Naomi heard from The Miz’s agent.

She is going to Hollywood, so is Jey.

The presenter for the LOL Moment of the Year….Adam Rose.

The LOL Moment of the Year Nominees Are:

A.  Mr. T loves his Momma.

B.  Wee-L-C Match

C;  The stunt double….Mizdow.

D.  Princess Pudding, Stephanie going through some pudding….ON MY BIRTHDAY!!

The LOL Moment of the Year Winner is:

Damien Mizdow

Mizdow tries to talk, but The Miz shoves him out-of-the-way to accept the award.

The crowd wants Miz-now.  The Miz wants to thank a person that doesn’t get the credit that they deserve….The moneymaker.

Rusev crush….The United States Champion is coming to the ring.

Lana asks us if we want to know what the real LOL moment of the year is?  How about our economy, or even the current President of the United States.  But our real americans are the real LOL moment.

Enter Jack Swagger.

In America, there is a saying, what comes around, goes around.  Rusev broke Zeb’s leg?  Swagger is going to break his ankle.

Swagger threw Rusev’s ankle into the barricade, and slapped The Patriot Lock on him.

We The People chants are through the arena.

Tonight, John Cena Vs The Big Show.  But next, 6-man tag match of Ryback and The Uso’s Vs Kane, The Miz, and Damien Mizdow.

The Uso’s and Ryback Vs The Miz, Kane, and Mizdow is now.

In what was an entertaining match, we saw Ryback pin The Miz with Shellshock.  We had Mizdow literally fly off the top rope, to mimic The Miz.  Seriously, Mizdow is getting over as a huge babyface, and it will happen sooner, rather than later.

Seth Green celebrates with the three men after the match.

Clips from the first ever Slammy Award show, from 1986.

Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat comes out for the next award….Match of the Year.

Match of the Year Nominees are:

A.  Daniel Bryan Vs Randy Orton Vs Batista, at Wrestlemania 30.

B.  John Cena Vs Bray Wyatt, Last Man Standing Match.

C.  The Shield Vs Evolution.

D.  Team Cena Vs Team Authority.

We find out the winner, next.

Next week is WWE Week, with Raw on Monday night.  A live Smackdown on Tuesday, and WWE Tribute to the Troops on Wednesday.

Match of the Year winner:

Team Cena Vs Team Authority.

Dolph Ziggler comes out to accept the award, he thanks the fans for sticking behind him his entire career, and promises there is more to come.

AJ Lee Vs Summer Rae, now.

AJ makes Summer tap out to Black Widow.

This Sunday, AJ Vs Nikki for the Divas Title.

Rob Van Dam is presenting the Extreme Moment of the Year.

Rob is in a tux, I am not sure if I have ever seen that before.  There is nobody better to present this than “Mr. Monday Night” Rob Van Dam.

Extreme Moment of the Year Nominees:

A.  Brock Lesnar putting the ass beating of Cena at Summerslam.

B.  Kane destroying Daniel Bryan.

C.  Chris Jericho doing a top rope flying body press on Bray Wyatt off the top of the cage.

D.  Seth Rollins using a Curbstomp on a cinder block, destroying Dean Ambrose.

The winner will be announced, next.

Extreme Moment of the Year Winner is:

Chris Jericho, and he is not with us.

But the “new and improved” Fandango is.

He accepts Jericho’s award.  Because he is reminding us he defeated Jericho in his debut match at Wrestlemania.

Okay, moving on.

“Saint Mick” is with Noelle, the elf and they are doing a WWEShopzone.com promo.

2 weeks ago, Big Show knocks out Cena, and Renee Young is standing by with Show.

Will Show be focused tonight, with Cena even though he is facing Erick Rowan in the first-ever Steel Steps match on Sunday?

Show said Renee made a mistake by asking that question, but he will forgive her, unlike the WWE Universe for not forgiving Big Show’s mistake.  But tonight, he takes all the anger and frustration out on Cena.

Booker T is now presenting us the WWE Superstar of the Year.

Superstar of the Year Nominees are:

A.  Brock Lesnar.

B.  Dean Ambrose.

C.  Daniel Bryan.

D.  Roman Reigns.

E.  Bray Wyatt.

F.  John Cena.

G.  Seth Rollins.

Vote now on WWE App, and we will find out the winner.  Big Show Vs Cena is next.

Chris Jericho returns next week on Raw, to run the show.

Superstar of the Year winner is:

Roman Reigns.

A bit of a surprise there, and here he is.

We get a welcome back chant.

It’s not the brass ring, but it’s pretty damn good and Roman loves it.  It’s a step in the right direction, and talking about stepping up.  It doesn’t matter if it’s John Cena, HHH, The Rock, Brock Lesnar, Vince McMahon, Roman will step up and be the top star and you can believe that.

Our main event, John Cena Vs The Big Show is now.

Big Show is DQ’d when Rollins comes out with J & J Security.  But here comes Ziggler to help Cena.  Big Show knocks both Cena and Ziggler out.  Erick Rowan is taken out by Luke Harper.  Here comes Ryback, but Kane takes him out.

We have all the finishing moves, but the night ends with Cena being hit by a Curbstomp by Rollins, and is put through the announce table.

It’s Rollins’ time now.

TLC is this Sunday, live and exclusively on WWE Network.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

This was a fun show tonight and it set up the PPV well.  It wasn’t centered around the awards, yet it also wasn’t taking itself too seriously.  I do question the choice of Charlotte losing when her job was to showcase the NXT show this Thursday.  But other than that, everything else did their jobs, and next week with Jericho back, even for a night should be fun.
