Watching Rudolph last night on CBS I couldn’t help but think of some similarities between characters in the movie and certain WWE personalities.
The Snowman as Triple H: One obvious similarity is that he starts the show with a pretty lengthy promo about the great storm of several years prior. But they also cut back to him numerous times, making you wonder who they are trying to get over in this film, the characters or the narrator.
The Boss Elf as Vince McMahon: He seems wildly out of touch with his current crop of elves and not allowing them to maximize their potential. Hermie is criticized for going off script and the rest of the elves are totally faceless, likely victims of the 50-50 booking of Christmastown.
The Abominable Snowman as Big Show: Yeah he’s the biggest guy in the movie and he cuts an imposing figure and his hands are as big as frying pans. But he is actually pretty ineffectual and does a babyface turn in the middle of the movie. And don’t forget that he also fell off a cliff from high up and lived, evoking memories of the Giant at Halloween Havoc 1995.
