WWE: Hornswoggle wins dubious award

The Vince McMahon’s son Hornswoggle storyline is joining an elite few; David Arquette as the WCW Champion, the botched WCW/ECW Invasion, Katie Vick, Al Wilson, the 2004 RAW Diva Search, the Jim Ross firing storyline and colonoscopy skit from 2005, not to mention “Eddiesploitation.” Those subjects were previous “winners” of’s ‘The Gooker Award’, and now Hornswoggle has joined this elite company as well after being voted on by wrestling fans everywhere. ‘The Gooker Award’ is given each year to the worst gimmick, storyline, or event in wrestling in that year. The award is named after The Gobbledygooker, one of the worst wrestling gimmicks of all time.

With 27% of the total vote, Hornswoggle beat out the seemingly never-ending Eric Young vs. Robert Roode feud (25%), Adam “Pacman” Jones joining TNA (12%), the infamous “Rosie O’Donnell” vs. “Donald Trump” match (12%), Vince McMahon: ECW Champion (9%), TNA’s Blindfold Steel Cage match at Lockdown (4%), the John Cena vs. Kevin Federline match (4%), Black Reign (4%), the TNA mascot Stomper (2%), and the Diva Search (1%).
