For the first time, the WWE Universe got to decide its favorite Superstar entrance for Cartoon Network’s Hall of Game Awards. Hustle, Loyalty, Respect won out.
John Cena took home the first-ever “Here to Rumble” Award for Best Superstar entrance at the second annual Cartoon Network Hall of Game Awards on Feb. 20. The Cenation leader’s signature charge down the entrance ramp beat out the three other nominees: Kofi Kingston’s freewheeling pyro-fest, The Miz’s defiant strut, and The Undertaker’s demonic lurch.
Even though he didn’t take home the prize, WWE Superstar The Miz still represented at the Hall of Game Awards, strutting down the red carpet and mingling with the other sports and entertainment celebrities who cut loose at the event. Host Shaquille O’Neal salsa danced with New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz (who also won the “Dance Machine” Award), David Beckham and Cam Newton were on hand to accept their individual awards (“King of the Kick” and “Gnarliest Newb”), and Flo Rida and Hot Chelle Rae took to the stage to perform their signature hits in front of a raucous audience. The Miz may not have won the award, but even he would have to admit that it made for an “Aaawwwesommme” night.
