NXT Superstars' and Divas' favorite Christmas memories
It's that time of year! Wish lists will be made and in all likelihood they will be checked twice as Jolly Old Saint Nick makes his yearly rounds. This week, NXT Superstars and Divas recount some of their favorite Christmas memories. We will let you decide who's been naughty or nice.
My favorite Christmas memory is from when I was 8 years old. I received a toy WWE ring complete with the TitanTron and about 10 action figures. I was so excited. I just played with that all day and didn't bother opening any of my other gifts.
I think my most distinct holiday memory would be in 1999 when I got the authentic jersey of my favorite New York Giants player, Phillippi Sparks, and tickets to see the Giants play the last game of the year. When I was at the game, I snuck into the players’ parking lot like a young G should and I met Phillippi, who then signed my jersey for me on the spot.
My favorite memory is from Christmas Eve. Every year while I was growing up, my family and I would go to mass and afterward rush home right before midnight and sit on our front lawn to watch the caroling truck pass in front of our house. It was a giant bus completely decorated and filled with a whole bunch of people singing Christmas songs while everyone in the neighborhood sat outside and watched. It was an amazing sight to see!
My favorite would have to be Christmas 2003 because that's when I received my first-ever package of Yankees season tickets.
My fondest memory came at the age of 7 years old after I had just finished shooting my first child modeling gig in Paris. With my first paycheck, I went and bought myself the most perfect present. I wrapped it up to surprise myself on Christmas morning along with a card that read: "To Tyler. Love, Tyler." I have to be honest with you, I shed a tear as I began opening up the gift that I purchased for myself. This gift was the most glorious thing I had ever seen because it gave me the opportunity to see how gorgeous the person staring back at me really is. You're probably wondering what the gift was. It was a mirror, of course! And I still have it to this day.
One year I got a Stretch Armstrong, and my brother and I just played with that all morning, not caring about the other gifts. Unfortunately, it only lasted for about a week.
My favorite Christmas memory is the first Christmas I got to spend in America. From living in poverty in Mexico to being able to spend the holiday in the States with my family for the first time was amazing. I got a PlayStation that year, which was the present I really wanted, so that made it even sweeter, but being together with family is the best Christmas present anyone can ask for.
