“Yes, sir, we promised you a great main event…”
-We recap the history of the Slammy awards, the lows and the highs, the serious and not-so-serious, and everything in-between as we end 2012 with a hopeful bang as Slammy Time begins tonight!
-No pyro as we see photos of AJ costing Cena costing him his match for the MITB breifcase against Ziggler, as well as the dominance of the SHIELD.
Rey Mysterio w/Sin Cara v. Damien Sandow w/Cody Rhodes
Damien and Rey lock up, Sandow with the boots and throws Rey to the outside chest first. Sandow rams Rey's head into the ring post, then rolls him back in for a two count. Legsweep and the Kobito Aequet for a near fall. Sandown locks in a chickenwing, Rey fights out, but Damien with shoulders to the gut. Both men up top, Sandow knocked down, Rey with the senton and the headscissors. Springboard crossbody gets a two. Sandow fires back with a nice jumping neckbreaker for a near fall. Rey counters a slam into a DDT, kicks Sandow into the ropes, then 619! Rey goes up, drops the dime, and gets three!

-Booker's ready to present...I'M THE BOOGEYMAN...AND I'M COMING TO GETCHA! No way...HOLY CRAP, IT"S HIM! WORMS AND ALL!
-We're back and the Boogeyman seems to have vanished, thankfully for Booker. Brad Maddox out, but he's jumped the gun as...KOFI KINGSTON is the winner. Maddox just sulks off like a sad panda while Kofi thanks the fans and appreciates them for giving him his first Slammy.
Non-Title Match: Divas Champion Eve Torres v. Kaitlyn
Kaitlyn fires off with a slap, and the two roll around, trading punches. They go to the outside, where Eve takes control, slamming her into the barricade, then back into the ring, where she boot-chokes Kaitlyn in the ropes, then locks her a sleeper on the ropes. The ref admonishes her, and Eve drops Kaitlyn. Eve argues with the ref, which Kaitlyn takes advantage off, dropping Eve with a gutbuster for three to pin the Divas Champ!
-The NEW...AGE...OUTLAWS are out to present "Comeback of the Year!" And they actually say "Bad ASS" Billy Gunn this time, haha! And the nominees (according to Billy's hand) are...
- Brock Lesnar
- Chris Jericho
- Jerry Lawler
-And the Winner is...JERRY "THE KING" LAWLER! Can't say I'm surprised, but good for Jerry! He thanks everyone who appreciated him coming back.
Non-Title Match: IC Champion Kofi Kingston v. Tensai
Tensai shrugs off a dropkick from Kingston, shoves him off, and hits a pair of elbows for a two count. Clubbing blows, then drags Kofi over for a Vader Bomb, which gets two. Tensai misses a corner splash, and TROUBLE IN PARADISE gets three! Was that even two minutes?
Winner: Kofi Kingston
-Wade Barrett ambushes Kofi during his celebration, ramming him into the ring post and delivering a vicious Bullhammer to floor Kofi at ringside.
-Vickie Guerrero out to her usual heat to present KISS OF THE YEAR! Hmm, wonder who's up for this one...
- AJ & CM Punk
- AJ & Daniel Bryan
- AJ & Kane
- AJ & John Cena
-And who's the lucky fella? Vickie says she'd never be up for this award. Unlike AJ, she doesn't get involved with superstars. The winners are AJ, of course, and...JOHN CENA! AJ skips out, and Vickie demands an explanation for her actions. AJ doesn't owe her or anyone else anything. She spent all year listening to what people thought of her and she's done with that. Vickie and AJ argue some more, and Ziggler's out to break things up. AJ glances at him, tells Vickie that the kiss with Cena was one for the year, but here's another...and she JUMPS Ziggler and rams her tongue down his throat, and he LIKES it! Vickie's a screaming wreck. AJ hops off, gives her crazy grin, and skips off with the award with a bemused, shocked Ziggler still by the podium. She sure knows how to pick 'em.
-The Great Khali in action...NEXT!
Great Khali v. David Otunga
Khali with a GIANT pair of chest chops for Otunga, misses a boot in the corner, Otunga takes out the leg and goes after it. Otunga with clubbing blows, but gets an elbow and a big boot. Khali Chop and this one's thankfully done.
Winner: Great Khali
-Khali and Natalya dance in the ring.
-Apparently there's a special presenter for "Superstar of the Year"...WOOOOOO! And the nominees are...WOOOOO!
- John Cena
- Big Show
- CM Punk
-THE NATURE BOY IS BACK! WOOOOOO! Ric Flair presenting the Superstar of the Year, how apropos. The Nature Boy is back in town! The winner is...JOHN CENA! Wow, I honestly wasn't expecting that, and the crowd not's happy with this one, children aside. Cena jokingly agrees with Flair about Philly being a lively crowd. Man, they are ALL over Cena tonight. Cena says it's about Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect, and the Superstar of the Year embodies that. He turns to Flair, and says he's shown all that and more throughout his life, and gives him the award.
-Before Flair can voice his thanks, Punk, on crutches, is out and he is ticked. He wonders who the hell voted for Cena, who lost to the Rock, lost to him twice, and lost a chance at MITB and was the first to cash in and lose. He says it's atrocious, like Philly and like Flair, who hasn't even been here a calendar year. Flair admits that's true, but can't seem to hear him over the ticking of his gold Rolex. Punk calls him nothing but bad baggage and could kick his on one leg.... (Continues on next page)
