12 Days... Hitman Holiday

Bret Hart & Santa Claus

Back in 1992, Bret Hart was the newly crowned WWF World heavyweight champion.  He had beaten Ric Flair for the title and made his first pay per view title defense at the Survivor Series about a month later.  His opponent, Intercontinental champion Shawn Michaels.

After Bret beat Shawn (with the sharpshooter, I believe) Santa came into the ring to celebrate the victory.  It even snowed inside the arena afterward.  This was the dawn of a new era in the WWF.  Following the celebration, Santa and Bret headed to the locker room and cut a promo.  Bret told the jolly old elf what he wanted for Christmas, and he ended up getting it several months later in the form of Yokozuna.  Sadly though, Santa still hasn't delivered that wish of peace to everyone.  Maybe next year.

Here's the Hitman's wish.
