Many were surprised that the CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar match at this year's SummerSlam wasn't nominated for the "Match of the Year" in the 2013 WWE Slammy Awards. According to reports, several people within WWE feel that it is easily the best match in the entire company for 2013.
According to one source, the reason Punk vs. Lesnar was not nominated is because Punk "can't have a better match" with Lesnar than Triple H did, so WWE nominated the Lesnar vs. Triple H match instead, and gave Punk the nomination for his match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 29 instead.
I get HHH has a huge ego but I don't buy it completely . I think it has more to do with lesnar having to sign a new contract after Mania and him being a candidate twice would make him want even more money. I think it's a little bit of both.
It is kinda weird that Cena ended up standing beside Triple H, Steph and Corporate Kane while Triple H's boy Randy Orton got Pedigree'd lying away alone, all of that while people were still chanting "DANIEL BRYAN!".
Last nights ending was amazing but lets see where it goes.
Exactly what I was thinking. There's no way AJ lost to the Bellas on that poll. AJ's whole heel run has had fans chanting her name and the Bellas whole "face" run has been boos and silence. Plus last night they got booed out of the arena when they won
Best Raw ending this year. It's nice to see a Heel Shawn Michaels accepting the slammy Award. I think it's going to be Corporate DX vs. Bryan and Punk at Wrestlemania 30. And Heel John Cena vs. The Undertaker.
Don't be surprised if AJ loses her title tonight...
NBC entertainment and sports personality Michelle Beadle is lending credence to today's report concerning an incident between herself and WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee at last Wednesday's Tribute to the Troops event in Pierce County, Washington.
Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer revealed this morning in a podcast on F4WOnline.com that Lee went on an obscenity-laced tirade towards the Access Hollywood co-host upon seeing her chat with CM Punk, the WWE Diva's boyfriend, backstage at the event. Beadle didn't believe Lee was serious with her unhinged WWE character-like behavior.
In response to a fan remarking to her this morning on Twitter, "You should have slapped AJ Lee when she got in your face," Beadle wrote, "Meh. I thought it was a joke."
Responding to an upset AJ Lee fan on Twitter, Beadle remarked, "Hon...it was done in front of company people. I didn't say a word. I thought it was a joke."
Beadle's tweet gels with Meltzer's claim, as he noted on the podcast that Lee's Tribute to the Troops incident took place in front of many important people. He added that a number of WWE officials were very embarrassed and angry at Lee over the incident, mainly for "coming off like her character in real life, and not in a good way." She is expected to be disciplined for her behavior.
