We Are Most Tired of Award
The SLAM! Readers and SLAM! Wrestling staff make their year-end picks

Christy Hemme, WWE Diva

Throughout the year we piss and moan that this wrestler is on TV too much or that personality should have left the industry years ago. As you will see below, there is a good amount of things we think are wrong in wrestling. Let the complaining begin!

What We Thought

Jason Clevett - WWE Divas. Whose brilliant idea was this? So much of my time has been wasted by stupid contests and garbage. It amazes me that they put this time and money into these bimbos who are worthless, but can’t seem to find anything for Paul London, Shannon Moore or any of the WWE releases to do. There have been a lot of low points in 2004 and this is right up there.

Yves Leroux - WWE Divas. I am no prude, but I've had plenty of divas to look at for the next few years. Maybe Vince should make an offer to Hugh Heffner and satisfy his own infatuation.

Bob Kapur - Fan Negativity. Is there anything good about wresting anymore? One might not think so with all of the negative things being written about the product (some justified, some not). While it's great that fans are passionate about the sport, sometimes it seems that people enjoy dumping all over the product even more than they like watching it. My take: either watch the show and quit your complaining, or, like I did with That 70s Show when it stopped being funny, just stop watching altogether and move on. But enough already with the negativity sheerly for the sake of negativity.

Corey David Lacroix - The WWE as a whole. Need I say more? This company is redefining the term "stale". There is nothing on the horizon when it comes to turning things around. I dare say it'll only get worse, and I'm not losing any sleep over it.


Jon Waldman - Bad commentators. While everyone knows my complaints about Jim Ross and Jerrry Lawler, there are other WWE voices I can do without, namely Todd Grisham. Grisham shows such an ineptness that it's downright embarassing, especially when WWE has him do commentaries on theid DVD releases. While Michael Cole, Don West and (unbelievably) Coach have improved, there are some wastes of airspace that really need to hit the road.
