For the first time since 2015, the Slammy Awards will return as a televised show.
In recent years, the Slammys ceremony has taken place as part of an episode of Raw. However, this year it seems they will be a standalone show as WWE have included them as part of the slate of original content for December on the WWE Network.
WWE have held the Slammy Awards on 13 occasions. They made their debut in 1986 and were given out again the following year. They then made their return in 1994 for a three year run, a period most well remembered for the revere that Owen Hart placed on the two Slammys he carried around with him (Only one of which he actually won).
The awards then returned for a sustained run between 2008-2015 on Raw where, by and large, the awards given out more closely resembled legitimate awards rather than the comedy categories of previous years including ‘Best Bowtie’ and ‘Best Head’.
Other intriguing programmes due to drop in December include Drew McIntyre taking part in ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, an episode of WWE Untold covering Goldberg’s streak and a new ‘Drew & A’ show featuring the WWE Champion interviewing actor Matthew McConaughey.
