It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And over the next few days, we’re going to be reliving some of the goodies that TNA and WWE have put under our Christmas trees! Looking back at the Christmas themed matches we’ve seen the Divas and Knockouts involved in, the DD team will each be picking their favourite Christmas themed match and sharing with you over the next few days!
Today’s pick is from Steven: My pick is Trish/Lita/Stacy vs Molly/Victoria/Miss Jackie in 2003’s Santa’s Little Helpers match. This match had some the biggest and most talented names in women’s wrestling today involved and they did not disappoint. They chemistry between the Divas was on point and most of them got some ring time (except Miss Jackie.) The best part of this match for me was the fan interaction. The crowd went absolutely wild when Trish and Lita made their entrances and had the same reaction to Victoria clocking Molly with the belt. After the debacle that was Monday’s Santa’s Little Helpers match, it’s hard to believe there was a time when these matches were actually good.

From Melanie: As it is Christmas Day, we thought we’d pick out another bonus classic to round off this ‘Christmas Classics’ series. The Divas have offered much holiday spirit to the troops overseas over the years and in 2003, three of WWE’s most remembered Divas — Dawn Marie, Sable and Torrie Wilson — entertained the troops in ‘Christmas from Baghdad’. I know that going over there and visiting with the troops meant a lot to Torrie in particular, and I’m sure it did for the other girls too, so here is a little reminder of that show:
