Not going to ask Claw or anyone else to dig through archives and things today, but I came across two things in the past week from watching video that tied into Christmas -- and thought it would be cool to remember back how it was.

1982 Christmas Night

Ric Flair beats Kerry Von Erich in a steel cage match in Texas that sets off the Freebirds vs Von Erichs feud

Kevin Sullivan beats Dusty Rhodes in a "Loser Leaves Florida For 60 Days" steel cage match

Does anyone else remember any significant happenings in wrestling on Christmas? If so, post them. Would be cool to relive.

1982 - World Class Championship Wrestling holds the first "Christmas Star Wars" event at Reunion Arena in Dallas, Texas, drawing a crowd of 18,000 fans (and a Texas record gate at the time) for a show that featured one of the most famous heel turns of all time, a turn that sparked arguably the greatest feud in Texas wrestling history, the Von Erichs vs. The Fabulous Freebirds.

- NWA World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair defeated Kerry Von Erich in a No Disqualification Steel Cage match in which Michael Hayes was the referee. Leading up to the match, World Class had run a storyline where, due to past controversial decisions in Flair title matches, there was a dispute as to who the referee would be. It was decided that Hayes, rather than usual officials David Manning or Bronco Lubich, would be "tough but fair" and able to keep control in the match. During the match, Von Erich and Flair got knocked out, and Hayes dragged Kerry on top of Flair and counted to three. However, Von Erich refused to accept the victory, and gave the match to Flair. Hayes screamed at Von Erich, calling him an "idiot" and as Kerry exited the cage, Terry Gordy slammed the door on Von Erich's head, sparking off the Freebird heel turn and the beginning of the legendary feud with the Von Erichs.

Oh I'll bet that at least one promoter somewhere got a great deal (rent) on an arena on Christmas Eve and decided to run it.

A lot of people have traditions associated with Christmas Eve, so it tends to be a pretty quiet night for almost everything.

The theory on Christmas night shows was that after a full day of family togetherness, people wanted to get out and blow off some steam enjoying mindless violence.
