There’s something about WWE and Christmas.
It seems like every year in the sports entertainment company, there is a segment involving Santa Claus on WWE television. We have come up with a list to reflect on these moments.
Coming in number 3, was Steve Austin stunning Santa Claus. Stone Cold Steve Austin is one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all-time.
For years now, Steve Austin has been regarded as one of the biggest stars in the history of the sports entertainment company.
He has feuded with the biggest names in the history of professional wrestling including Vince McMahon, The Undertaker The Rock, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and the list goes on and on. He has held nearly every title that the company has to offer.
Austin held 19 championships throughout his wrestling career, as he is a six-time WWF Champion, a two-time Intercontinental Champion and a four-time WWF Tag Team Champion, thus making him the fifth Triple Crown Champion in WWE history, while also being a two-time WCW United States Heavyweight Champion, a two-time WCW World Television Champion, a one-time WCW World Tag Team Champion and a one-time NWA World Tag Team Champion in WCW.
He was forced to retire from in-ring competition in 2003 due to a series of knee injuries and a serious neck injury.
On a pre-Christmas episode of Raw in 1997, with Austin reaching his peak of popularity, he interrupted Santa Claus while he was cutting a promo. What ensued can only be described as vintage Stone Cold.
Everything Austin did during the Attitude Era was great, but giving Santa a Stunner was just too perfect.
Coming in number 2 was when Steve Austin dressed up as Santa to stun Vince McMahon. Ever since 2003, the WWE has put on a show for the United States troops known as Tribute to the Troops during the holiday season. It all started nearly a decade ago in Baghdad, Iraq and it certainly kicked off with a bang. During the first episode of the special, McMahon and Austin made the it unforgettable.
While it may not have even been Austin's greatest Santa-related moment, he and McMahon proved why they will always be considered the biggest rivals in professional wrestling history.
Coming in a number 1 was the time that Alberto Del Rio decided to run over Santa. Del Rio almost ruined Christmas by running over Santa Claus with his car on the Dec. 24 episode of Raw.
