The Slammy Awards is a concept used by International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE), previously known as the International Wrestling Federation (IWF), where awards, similar to the Academy and Grammy Awards, are given to professional wrestlers and other individuals within IWE, such as commentators and managers. There have been seven editions of the concept; the first edition aired in 1986, with another airing in 1987, and after a nine year hiatus, the concept resumed in 1996 and 1997. The concept yet again endured another long hiatus; however, it has been a concept used again by IWE since 2008. The recipient of the award receives a statuette that depicts one wrestler holding another over his head.
