WWE History Vol. 18: Best Christmas Moments
Ho Ho Ho! With Christmas just around the corner, take a look back at the best holiday-themed moments from WWE History. Toys for tots? More like Stunners for Santa!

HBK then complained that either his arms were cold or that he couldn't reach his snacks. So the quick-thinking Triple H provided his best friend with a DX Snuggie -- blanket with arm holes.
