-Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates the holiday. I hope you are enjoying the day with family and friends just as I am fortunate enough to be doing. The madness of holiday shopping and traveling is over and now we can simply enjoy the day. Here’s hoping that Santa Claus was good to you.
-The Christmas edition of WWE Smackdown is headlined by Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev for the U.S. Championship. Yes, on the real Rusev Day (see below for more details)! We will not have live coverage of Smackdown tonight due to the holiday. Jake Barnett or I will have a review of the show available on Wednesday. Things will get back to normal beginning tomorrow for a few days and then we’ll be back in holiday mode next week with more holiday show reviews running on delay.
-The Ring of Honor TV show is a “best of” show that looks at the various ROH Championships. I should have a quick recap of the show available on Wednesday.
