Dolph Ziggler named wrestler of the year, Mick Foley turns down Raw, WWE holiday video

WWE has posted the following Happy Holidays video today:

Rolling Stone has named Dolph Ziggler their wrestle of the year. They wrote:

"Despite his sideline as a stand-up comedian, Ziggler's only real weakness may be commanding the crowd with a microphone in his hand, but that charisma could well evolve in 2015 as he strikes a balance between bestowed appeal and earned braggadocio. Nitpicks aside, no other sports entertainer reaching that large an audience over the past 300-plus days delivered so tirelessly and unselfishly, making everyone around him look better while blue-streaking his own prestige out of mushy midcard status. And for that, this former male cheerleader is our 2014 WWE Wrestler of the Year, and someone we'll be rooting for as he enters the peak of his career."

HO HO HOGAN?

What about FO- HO-HOLEY?

I appreciate so many people jumping to my defense at the announcement of Hulk Hogan as the special guest for the Christmas episode of WWE Monday Night Raw. All of your "what about St Mick" and "Foley is Santa" comments are much appreciated.

But the truth is, I was asked by WWE if I would like to travel to Minneapolis for Raw, but had to turn the opportunity down, due to a prior commitment. I'll miss it. I'll watch, and probably wish I was there. But as important as appearing on Christmas Raw is to me, honoring a commitment means just a little bit more.

I have really enjoyed being part of the holiday season in my own small way in WWE, and hope to be part of the Christmas episode in 2016.

So don't hold it against the Hulkster or WWE, I wasn't forgotten or disrespected in any way. Just previously engaged."
