12 Days...A Stunning Christmas

Stunner! stunner! stunner!

Sometimes when Santa shows up on a wrestling show he's there to spread Christmas cheer.  But in most cases, as you've seen from the 12 Days... blogs, Santa is usually there to cause some kind of trouble.  Such was the case back during the Attitude Era of the WWF.  I'm not sure of the exact year here, but I'm guessing it was 1998.

This footage as I understand it aired after Raw went off the air.  Santa was in the ring and expecting Sable to come out and sit on his lap.  An official told St. Nick that the diva wasn't coming out and a little kid came into the ring instead.  The boy said the man in the beard wasn't the real Santa to which the faux Father Christmas kicked the kid out of the ring.

That's when we cue the sound of shattering glass and Stone Cold Steve Austin comes out to talk to Santa...
