Scott Bowden and The Great Brian Last team to unmask one of the ghastly Ghosts of Memphis Wrestling’s past, The Christmas Creature. Hailing from the North Memphis Pole, the Yuletide Terror was the first in a long series of…interesting… gimmicks for Glenn Jacobs, who would finally carve out his niche as The Undertaker’s brother, Kane, and go to enjoy multiple reigns as WWE World champion and World tag-team titleholder. Joining us from Memphis will be Kevin Lawler—son of the King—the man who created the Christmas Creature gimmick, who reveals how one the most memorable Memphis monsters in history came to be. We’ll also have the referee who officiated this monstrosity of a match between this overgrown, haunted Christmas tree come to life and the King of Memphis way back in December 1992. “I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight, ‘Miserable Christmas to all and to all a good fright.'”
