WWE had its own version of The Oscars last night on Raw, The Slammys.
While many superstars picked up the awards they were expected to, some superstars did not, especially The New Day. And they were furious.
The New Day, which consists of Xavier Woods, Big E, and Kofi Kingston, were nominated for several Slammys but failed to walk away from the show with a single award. Not even the Tag Team of the Year.

The Tag Team Champions vented out their frustrations on Twitter last night once they found out individually. Woods even tweeted a picture of WWE's tweets showing how many more retweets they got compared to The Usos, who were the actual winners of the award.
Yes, The Usos. The team which was split for nearly half a year due to an injury to Jey Uso, won Tag Team of the Year ahead of one of the best teams the WWE has seen since The Shield split.
While it might be a scripted frustration by The New Day to add to their current feud with The Usos and The Lucha Dragons, not everyone believes the authenticity behind The Slammy Awards voting process, especially due to problems with the WWE's app system in the past, which was used as a form of voting last night.
However, Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com said on his twitter: "Before anyone asks again. WWE Slammy Awards are legit winners. As publicly traded company WWE could not solicit votes & then work finishes."
So as far as we know, The Slammys are legitimate and there is no truth bending behind it. However, when Neville wins Breakout Star of the Year after having literally zero push by the WWE ahead of someone like Kevin Owens who has had a push and defeated John Cena in his first match, you have to ask if the ceremony is all scripted and planned out as well.
