Over the years, quite a few Professional Wrestlers have dressed up as Santa Claus on WWF, WCW & WWE TV.
Here’s our TOP 23 list of them:
On the December 20 2016 episode of ‘Talking Smack’, a WWE Network exclusive talk show that airs every week after SmackDown! Live, Santa Claus was one of the guests with the other being Baron Corbin.
It was never officially revealed, but under the Santa costume was ECW Hardcore Wrestling Veteran Rhyno.
22. Gorilla Monsoon
On the December 25 1994 episode of WWF Wrestling Challenge, Gorilla Monsoon was on commentary, dressed as Santa Claus.
At the end of the show it appears though, as if Monsoon wasn’t the person doing the commentary with “The Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase that night (of course it was him though).
While also competing as Bad Santa during the 2005 edition of ‘WWE Tribute To The Troops’, John Bradshaw Layfield appeared as a regular Santa Claus a year later on the same show, where he was on the receiving end of Chris Masters’ “Master Lock Challenge”.
After being attacked by Masters, Santa JBL would get his revenge right away and helped a soldier to actually break the master lock.
20. Sylvain Grenier
On the December 22 2006 episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown! former La Résistance member Sylvain Grenier, dressed as Santa Claus, attacked World Heavyweight Champion Batista with a steel pipe.
Teddy Long came out and made a match between the two, which Batista won via pinfall after hitting his finisher, the Batista bomb.
