12 Days... Classy Claus

"Classy" Freddie Blassie as Santa

Here's another Christmas moment, courtesy of the world of professional wrestling.  Through the years, Santa has been played by a whole host of wrestling personalities.  We'll look at a few of them over the next 10 days.

Today's submission is from the Attitude Era of the WWF.  Remember, the company started using more sexual references and the hardcore title was introduced too.  But for their holiday commercial, they brought back a blast from the past.  I think the spot sums up where the company was at that point, obviously things are a little more family friendly now, which is something I don't mind one bit.

Without further ado, I give you "Classy" Claus.
