Raw: Slammys

Raw became the Slammy Awards Show with matches between award presentations. All we needed were song and dance numbers—what happened to the Nitro Girls? The awards went to:

Tag Team of the Year- Be jealous—The Miz and John Morrison won.
Best Finishing Maneuver- Evan Bourne’s Shooting Star Press
Extreme Moment of the Year- Jeff Hardy’s Plunge (off the scaffolding)
Couple of the Year- Edge and Vickie Guerrero (excuse me, was that really supposed to be the most annoying, disgusting relationship of the year award?)
Diva of the Year- Beth Phoenix (fight with Melina, Santino’s groin injured again during scuffle)
Oh My God Moment of the Year- CM Punk Cashes in Money in the Bank (Among the people he thanked were Rocky Balboa)
Match of the Year- Shawn Michaels v. Ric Flair at Wrestlemania 24
“Damn!” Moment of the Year- Khali Kiss Cam
Superstar of the Year- Chris Jericho

Other Notes:
MVP called out the other MVP in the house, Jimmy Rollins (for those of you who don’t know, he plays baseball) and the Phillies for having losing streaks longer than his. Rollins looked like he was really getting into it, standing and doing a little unheard smack of his own.

Matt Hardy looked like he borrowed his suit from the Big Show.

Alicia Fox (now on ECW-presented OMG award with Joey Stiles) was Edge and Vicki’s wedding planner.

Raw Results (12/8):
Intercontinental Championship Tournament, Semi-Finals- John Morrison v. CM Punk, Punk pins Morrison

Batista and Triple H v. Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes and Manu, Orton pins Batista
R Truth v. Dolph Ziggler, Ziggler wins by count out
John Cena v. Edge, match ends in typical pre-pay-per-view chaos with Jericho, Triple H and Jeff Hardy coming out to fight…
