Merry Fuggin Christmas

Xmas in wrestling is always an interesting time.

Whether it's Michael Hayes dressing as Santa to get the jump on those Von Erichs, or Xanta Claus coming to the WWE all the way from the South Pole to steal your presents, or even Stone Cold stunning the crap out of out portly bearded friend ( Santa I mean, not Michael Hayes, nor Balls Mahoney ), Christmas has always been a time for a celebration of the year that has been, and to set up some of what is to come.
In a year where there has been much to complain about in wrestling, I thought I would list a few of the things that never fail to amuse, amaze, or just make thoroughly enjoyable viewing, in the world of professional wrestling.

...and so, in no specific order...

Santino Marella's promos...
Ron Simmons just being...
the TNA Knockouts...
Adam Bruiser bringing back old school...
a new wrestling book by Greg Oliver...
Finlay and Hornswaggle ( no apologies for this one )...
the Human Tornado dancing...
Father James Mitchell...
"Rollerball" Rocco's "fantastic" tan...
"Legends of Wrestling" and "Old School" on WWE 24/7...
the match I watched live the other night between Chris Hero and Shadow Phoenix...
Al Snow and whatever he is doing right at this very moment...
Daffney and Sara Del Ray in Shimmer...
the veterans making appearances, and the WWE Hall of Fame in general..
Kendo Nagasakis mask...
Balls Mahoney's name...
The Big Daddy annuals from the early 80s a friend just sent me...

... and from there my friends... Merry Xmas. I hope Santa ( but never Xanta ) Claus is kind to you all. And I hope to see you all again ( perhaps in slightly, more festively plump forms ) soon. much love
mister J.
