Smackdown in Iraq
By BILL BRIOUX, Toronto Sun
Are you ready to rumble, Iraq? The UPN - definitely not the UN -- is airing a special WWE Smackdown! from Iraq and Kuwait at 8 p.m. on Christmas night.
The two-hour event will feature Vince McMahon, Big Show, Torrie Wilson, Sable, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, John Cena, Dawn Marie, Bradshaw, Faarooq, Rikishi and Rhyno -- plus a special appearance by the jolly ol' head-locker himself, Santa!
The holiday-themed wrestling ruckus will take place before thousands of men and women in the U.S. military -- just in case they forgot what they were fighting for. Ho ho ho!
