That was a lot of fun. Just pure, goofy, holiday-themed entertainment spectacle WWE-style. Christmas Eve is a tough night to be a heel, and a heel named Eve on Christmas Eve. All the babyfaces went over. The exception, @HEELZiggler, who spent a sexy night going over AJ, ahem, in a series of vignettes complete with fake fireplace and anti-Cena Christmas limericks.
Big Show singing Christmas songs to Sheamus while grappling him in a hammerlock was unreal.
Poor Alberto Del Rio was heel for a night for running over Santa with his luxury car, but Ricardo was the performer of the night for his weeping and wailing over Santa. Del Rio's teddy bear attack on Cena may be his career-greatest offensive maneuver.
Kane eats dogs!
Daniel Bryan and Zack Ryder won matches! Merry Christmas, Internet!

That was a really fun show, and without exaggeration, I'm pretty sure that the whole bit revolving around the teddy bear was the funniest thing I've ever seen in wrestling. I think my favorite part was seeing how invested Cena was in finding out what was in the box.
That was a really fun show. Cena/ADR may be the most fun holiday brawl since Orton/Otunga last year. I'd have to give the latter match the thumbs up over the former, just because Orton knows how to truly embrace the goofy nature of these brawls.
I'd like to throw in ZayJay as a name for WWE's new power couple.
I just realized why I like brad Maddox. Anybody else getting a "The Brian Kendrick" vibe from his character?
Mick Foley debuts a new persona specifically for Christmas, I knew Santa sold that car shot a little too well.
The Divas actually put out a fantastic lengthy match. The multiple finishes at the end was hot.
Kermit the Frog referencing the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy the military formerly enforced to actual soldiers totally caught me off guard.
Holy shit Kane eats puppies! That had to be Kane's dog or something. The way he and the dog stared at each other was perfect comedic timing. I'm sure I woke up neighbors in two counties watching that scene.

A-Dolph? Has that one been used yet?
The most fitting would probably be A2Z (or, in WWE speak, Team A2Z). Most likely set inside a pink heart or something like that. Sounds like something A.J. would come up with (God knows what that says about me...)
Fun little RAW for the holidays, no complaints. My wife recognized Foley Claus by his gimpy walk before I picked up on who he was.
I'm very high on Brad Maddox' potential and my wife informs me he's very cute. I still have no idea if he can work.

Actually, the best thing about the vignettes were how *EASY* they were to produce, IMO. Simple, yet it worked. White back drop, dark clothes for Sean, chyron from either AVID or Inscriber or the like, and voila.
