Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 12.22.15: RAW #RAW #Slammy

By @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE, is back with the RAW edition.
- This week's RAW was live in Minneapolis, Minnesota and was being advertised for not only just wrestling, but also as their Slammy Awards Show. If you're new to the Slammy Awards Show, I'll explain it to you. The Slammy Awards is basically WWE's version of the Grammys or the Oscars. WWE rewards their superstars with trophies for being voted the best in whatever category they're nominated in. Usually categories range from Best Wrestler of the Year, Best Match of the Year, OMG Moment of the Year and a bunch of other categories to fill up the three hour show. WWE also announced Slammy winners throughout the whole day and also during the RAW Pre-Show. So lets get to the recap and see just who walked out with a Slammy this year.

Reigns' music hits for the interruption before she can continue. Reigns is also in a smiling mood. Reigns tells Stephanie to relay a message to Triple H....tell him Reigns is here and not hard to find. Stephanie begins screaming at Reigns and tells him to get out of her ring, but Reigns smirks and doesn't move. Reigns next turns his back on Stephanie, which angers her more. Reigns finally leaves by his own choice and Stephanie demands him to get back in the ring. Reigns leaves through the crowd, as Stephanie calls Reigns a coward. Stephanie announces that Reigns can watch his family get beaten down tonight as The Usos face The New Day in a 3-On-2 Handicap Match and Dean Ambrose faces Sheamus in a Steel Cage Match.
