Dec 20, 2017

Twas five days before Christmas, and all through the net,
Jimmy Van and SRS, were the best you could get,
They talked XFL, a terrible decision
And maybe they'll talk about bad penis incisons!
Daniel Cormier spoke out, he didn't like the Young Bucks
All this was on Fightful, and it sure didn't suck,
No need to concern, it's not a political show
Unlike Billy Gunn, who somehow both sucks and blows,
A women's Royal Rumble? That's kind of cool,
Until mother goose Stephanie, starts acting a fool
205 Live is going out on the road,
Visit Fightful so SRS can get a speedboat!
Hopefully on Christmas, you get many toys
But tune in today for the List and Ya BOY!!!
