Keep checking back for updates, with the previous owner gone we have taken over.
The 2015 WWE Slammy Awards pre-show opens with Renee Young, Eden, Booker T and Corey Graves in Minneapolis. The first Slammy Award they reveal is Rivalry of the Year and after a video package, it’s revealed to be Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker. We go backstage to Eden and Heyman to accept the award. Heyman doesn’t like her introduction so he introduces himself and accepts the award on behalf of Taker and The Beast, the winner of the rivalry. Heyman walks off and Eden sends us back to the panel.
– After discussion from the panel, the next Slammy Award they give away is for the best WWE Network Original. Steve Austin’s podcast wins and Graves accepts on Austin’s behalf, saying it gives him an excuse to visit Austin’s ranch and have a beer. Graves talks about his Culture Shock show, the RAW Pre-show and Renee’s Unfiltered show not being nominated. We come back to reveal the Slammy Award for Double Cross of the Year. Damien Sandow wins for turning on The Miz. We go back to Eden and The Miz, who is taking credit. Sandow walks up and interrupts. He says he was in the top 10 for votes and says that’s good considering how much TV time he’s had lately. He ends it by thanking everyone for voting for him and says stay tuned for what he will do next.
It’s December. Already. Before you know it, you’ll be up to your eyeballs in tinsel, wrapping paper and tacky gifts you never wanted from relatives you weren’t even sure existed. Worst of all, as you trudge through crowds trying to find the perfect gift that won’t get you dumped, your ears will be flooded with some of the most atrocious sounds the universe has to offer: Christmas songs.
Don’t get me wrong. Christmas music can be okay. Some of it is even downright good! But if I’m forced to endure “Feliz Navidad” one more time, I’m sticking drill bits in my ears.
And once the Christmas season eases, you’ll be stressing over New Year’s plans. Where to go? Who to invite? Who will you share that regrettable, hazy midnight make out session with? And are there even any good New Year’s songs to soundtrack the night? There’s “Auld Lang Syne” but only Ryan Seacrest likes that one. Prince’s “1999” was great until, you know, 1999 actually happened. Continue Reading

Corey Graves vs. Adrian Neville
2/3 falls here. Neville hits a quick dropkick for two but walks into an elbow to the jaw to put him down. A belly to back suplex gets a near fall on Neville but he comes back with some forearms of his own. Adrian gets two off a side roll before flipping forward twice and jumping to the apron. He kicks Graves in the head to put him down and the Red Arrow gives him the first fall at 2:11.
Graves gets to his feet but rolls to the floor for a breather. Adrian will have none of that and goes outside for some chops and a knee lift. Back inside and Neville loads up another Red Arrow but Corey rolls away before Adrian can jump. Graves shakes the ropes to send Adrian to the floor, possibly reinjuring the bad knee. Corey takes him back inside to pound on the knee and we take a break.
Back with Graves pounding on the chest for two before wrapping the bad leg around the post. Off to a half crab for a very long time until Adrian kicks him off. Graves chop blocks him down and puts on Lucky 13 for the second fall at 10:56 shown so far. Neville’s knee is barely functioning as he tries to pull himself up in the corner but he uses the good leg to stop a charging Graves.
Graves fires back with some shoulders in the corner but Neville escapes I think a spinebuster and hits a low kick to the head to send Graves to the floor. Back in and Neville chops away and pounds on Corey in the corner until the knee gives out. Corey loads up another chop block but Neville hits a low dropkick to the head for two in a nice counter. Neville tries the Red Arrow again but the knee gives out and he falls to the mat. Lucky 13 goes on again but he crawls to the ropes on his knuckles for the break. Graves loads up the hold again but gets small packaged for the third fall at 15:46.
Result: Adrian Neville b. Corey Graves 2-1 – Small package
