WZ Roundup: Christmas, Chris Jericho, And Cesaro

It’s WZ Roundup time once again. We’re still recovering from various forms of holiday fun, but that doesn’t mean that the wrestling world stops spinning. Or that it stopped spinning 21 years ago when WCW decided to end Goldberg’s winning streak with a taser.
21 years ago today, Goldberg's undefeated streak ended … on his birthday 😅

Speaking of the holidays, it seems like a good time of year to celebrate Cesaro. WWE put out a “feats of strength” playlist for the Swiss Superman just a few days short of Festivus, and it’s a great reminder of how long Cesaro has been in his current position in WWE.
Xavier obviously agrees, saying that his former rival in The Bar should be one of the top prospects to take on Brock Lesnar in the near future.
I’d put my money on @WWECesaro against Brock.

Speaking of The Bar, Sheamus is just about set to return to SmackDown, but not before posting a wonderful Christmas greeting featuring himself and Finlay posing in front of a festive tree.

On the AEW side of things, what are all of the Elite wrestlers doing for Christmas? Chris Jericho is discovering just how far his Bubbly has traveled, watching a video on TikTok and calling for more submissions.

Evil Uno is calling out Sonny Kiss on a misguided taste in movies. At least no one is defending Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House.

Uno also took time out of his cult leadership to write out his favorite video games of the year for popular gaming site Giant Bomb. He shared the spotlight with fellow wrestler Jack Gallagher and a whole host of gaming industry folks during their year-end celebration.

Finally, at the top of Mt. Crumpit, MJF is raining down lumps of coal to his fans on this joyous holiday. I’d expect nothing less from AEW’s resident Grinch.
Father Trevino, thank God you’re a priest, because if you weren’t, your sex life would be exactly the same. https://t.co/x5CZpd7ou7
