I went with the Festival of Friendship because when I saw the commercials announcing it, I had this horrible pit pop up into my stomach and figured it'd be awful. Imagine my surprise in finding that it was one of the genuinely funniest promos/skits in the history of Raw. Jericho's genuine enthusiasm for it and Owen's shocked response to everything that was going on was beautiful to behold, at least it was later on as I was too busy laughing my ass off the first half a dozen times I watched it.

Oh shit. How could I forget the Festival of Friendship? I picked Cena vs Roman before I saw it was an option. Was still a great promo anyway.

I went with Cena vs. Roman. Realest promo that I've ever seen in wrestling, (well besides when Matt Hardy and Edge were fighting over Lita. Those got pretty real.) When Cena said, "I'm still here because you can't do your job" and "It's called a promo kid you're going to have to learn how to do it sooner or later"; I thought that there was a legit beef between them. I know wrestling is fake, but that just seemed too below the belt to be a work.

Whenever they can make you genuinely question if something is real or not then it's usually great.

SHIT

Voted for Reigns promo post WM, when the absolute best choice was Cena Vs Reigns. First time in a long time that promo segments became must-see tv for a few weeks.

After this year, Cena has arguably solidified his status as the best promo man in company history. Roman trolling the post Mania crowd was excellent though.

I went with the festival of friendship. The reason being is not only because the Jericho and Owens friendship storyline was one of the reasons to watch Raw, but then when it was announced it just sounded like a stupid little segment ready for Goldberg to come in and destroy everything. Not only was the promo funny but it took a huge emotional turn as well. Ervurhijg was set up perfectly and it delivered better than I think anyone could’ve hoped for.

I get what people are saying about Roman/Cena promo but in my eyes it was just Cena making Reugns look like a bitch, which we all want but I wouldn’t say that’s promo of the year, though there as never really been a shoot promo that heavy before. Romans my yard again was great but one line doesn’t cut it for me.

I thought for sure a Cena/Miz promo would be nominated because almost all of them were pretty fantastic. As it stands, I have to go with Cena/Roman. The amount of truth Cena spit at Reigns was equally hilarious and cringe-inducing.

I'm alone here, I know. I had to go with the rap battle, because The Usos killed it.

New Day came out with a Rosebud entourage and had some so-so lines. The Usos came out with an entourage that looked like they were about to open for NWA.

I've been a fan of battle rap since Scribble Jam 1997. The Usos were phenomenal and took personal shots at Xavier. It was ten times more awesome than I expected.

Tough choice here.

Reigns post-Mania would be a shoe-in had it led somewhere, but I really loved Miz's "You can't see me... because there is nothing here worth seeing." Cena's attacks on Roman were great too.

It is a little telling though that all three of those promos ended up going nowhere - Reigns didn't capitalise on the heat he garnered, Miz was squashed at Mania and Cena was beaten in a one-off match by Reigns.

I think it is Reigns post-Mania for me. Just. In fact, no, I am going to give the Miz some love.
