Stars In Progress…Jarrett Exclusive, Slammy Awards & More

The 2011 Slammy Award Show
One Annual Step Up

I look forward to the Slammy Awards edition of Raw every year. It's a refreshing way to break the monotony and offer some fun moments. Not to mention, looking back at the previous year's highlights and remembering exactly how we got to this point is enjoyable as well.

What I enjoy most about the year-end event are the opportunities created by giving certain superstars a simple trophy. Who can forget the late, great Owen Hart in '97 after winning his second Slammy? It was a great role for Hart and he played it to perfection.

I don't want to try and predict who will win the awards this year (Punk) or guess what will happen during the show (Miz will get mad he didn't win and steal Punk's trophy, setting up very funny home vignettes with Miz praying to and worshiping the piece of metal, positioned appropriately on the back of his toilet). Rather, I'm going to sit back and enjoy the show.
