Some Slammy Award winners were worthy, and some were not – but really, that’s how it’s always been. What’s really important right now is the direction of the WWE’s top stars as the Road to WrestleMania XXX is just over the horizon. With the last 90 seconds of Raw, the door was flung wide open with possibilities. Just. Like. That. Cena and Orton is now. But after that? WHO KNOWS. And that’s what makes this fun, guys.

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
