Slammy AwardsAccording to The Wrestling Observer, WWE has been discussing the idea of holding the Slammy Awards as its own standalone show instead of having them held during an episode of Raw.

If WWE does go through with the idea, they would rent a smaller theater type venue, as opposed to an arena, and air the show as a WWE Network special.

In related news, the current plan in WWE is to run quarterly live specials on the WWE Network in 2016, as the company did with the Elimination Chamber event and the upcoming July 4th show airing live from Tokyo.
