Santa, if you’re out there (up there? I have no idea where you are...), the only thing I want for Christmas is to not have to watch a Santa Claus match on Raw.
Now, I haven’t read the spoilers, but I’m going to assume that Mark Henry wins this thing and that Christmas is saved. No reason to cancel your travel plans.
Now, WWE may just be trying to have a little Christmas fun, but I'll play Scrooge here and try to explain why this is a gift-wrapped bucket of vomit just waiting to be opened. In the world that WWE presents to us on TV, Damien Sandow and Mark Henry must have independently, and willingly, started to dress up as Santa for some reason and asked children to sit on there laps, right?
If not, then whose idea (within the context of the show) was it?
Did HHH and Stephanie tell Henry and Sandow to portray Santa? Even if they did, who decided the stipulations of this match? How would Sandow cancel Christmas if he wanted to? If they didn't come up with this on their own, then we're only left to assume that, within WWE's world, these two must have taken orders from someone. So does that mean that all wrestlers are told what to do? Or just these guys?
Now besides how awful this entire setup is, try to think of a match on Raw within the past five years that had more promotion one week ahead of time than this!
I guess this is still a little classier than WWE murdering Santa in cold blood like last Christmas, but it's still worse than eating a fruitcake that’s spent a week in a urinal.
Time to kick out.
Well, that's all for this week. Agree? Disagree? Am I being a Grinch? Sound off below and thanks for reading! Also, if you have 90 minutes to kill this holiday season, check out a new podcast I'm a part of called Wrestling With Friends. That's right, gather up your friends and loved ones and enjoy some wrestling rants. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
