Your All-time Favorite Christmas Angle
Mine was Christmas Night 1983 in World Class.
One year into the classic Free-bird/ Von Erich war, Santa Claus was handing out candy canes to children at ringside before a match with Terry Gordy and Buddy Roberts vs Mike and Kevin Von Erich loser of the fall leaves town. Michael Hayes had lost a loser leaves town match on Thanksgiving, and it looked like the fued was winding down.
Mike Von Erich somehow manages to win the fall over Gordy. Santa Claus enters to celebrate with Mike and Kevin, raises Mike's hand and wallops him with the bag. Beard comes off and of course it's Hayes. The fued gets another jump start.
The Santa Claus thing has been done in just about every promotion. In fact it is almost shocking when Santa does not turn out to be a wrestler. However this was one of the first televised Santa angles and in 1983 it was shocking.
I am sure there are better known and more epic Christmas angles, I always loved the Christmas Battle Royal's CWA would put on, but this one blew my mind back then.
