12 Days... Xanta Klaus

Xanta Klaus (from WWE)

Over the years the WWE has come up with some pretty crazy gimmicks.  One of the tops may be the seasonal Xanta Klaus.  It was back in December 1995, and Ted DiBiase hired the services of the anti Santa.  Hailing from the South Pole and sporting a black beard, Xanta squashed a variety of jobbers as he looked toward a feud with Savio Vega.

Xanta was played by future ECW star Balls Mahoney and didn't stick around long in the WWF.  Those seasonal gimmicks just don't seem to work out, do they?  Perhaps the WWF could have had a bad holiday tag team of Xanta and the Gobbledy Gooker.    I'm just glad they never tried anything with the Tooth Fairy or the Easter Bunny.  Although I wonder if Colt Cabunny could ever make an appearance in the WWE...

In the match you're about to watch, he takes care of Scott Taylor who would later go on to be Scotty Too Hottie. Enjoy.
