- To do something special for the Superstars working on Christmas, WWE officials threw a backstage Christmas party at Monday's RAW in Chicago, according to PWInsider. Word is that the company also paid the hotel bills in Chicago for the RAW and SmackDown rosters this week as a way to say thank you for being away from their families over the Christmas holiday.
Or have your body thrown around and whacked for 200 odd days a year.
Still don't see the connection between that and Christmas.
It's pretty much the one time of year recognized by just about everyone (except retail) as a time for family and relaxation. Few places would even consider making people work Christmas Eve, let alone Christmas. Add in a job that has you on the road for the vast majority of the year while also experiencing all kinds of physical wear and tear and it makes working Christmas sting that much more. The fact that they got the week off before helps since you can do an early Christmas but it still sucks. And yes minimum wage service and retail workers get boned and it sucks, but that doesn't make it suck less for them. Still the week off is nice.

Honestly and I'm not trying to antagonize here, but literally every gas station attendant stuck at work on Xmas or overnight during New Years (aka the super drunk shift) deserves more pity and compassion than any WWE Superstar with the best job in the world in my opinion. Working a crappy dead end job on Xmas sucks worse than being cheered by thousands of live fans or being watched by millions of fans at home to me.
I'm guessing the people saying it's no big deal/blown out of proportion aren't parents.
Having family in law enforcement, it's not always possible to celebrate on Christmas day proper.
