WWE is sports entertainment and since the first word in the company’s description is “sports” then ESPN is going to finally give them some love during their yearly awards ceremony.
For the first time ever WWE is getting their own category in the ESPN ESPY Awards. The “Best WWE Moment” award will be given out this year and there are four nominees.
Two moments up for the award include WrestleMania moments featuring Kofi Kingston and Becky Lynch’s big Mania title wins this year. Roman Reigns’ return from leukemia is also up for the award as is Ronda Rousey’s first (and only) WWE RAW Women’s Title win.
WWE Superstars have attended the event for years and John Cena has even hosted the event, but this is the first year that WWE is actually getting their own category.

This year’s ESPY Awards will take place on July 10th and will be hosted by legendary comedian and SNL alum Tracy Morgan.
