Children, gather 'round and i will tell you a tale. A tale from the far away distant distant past of 1990. A tale about a wrestling company called WWF, who put on a pa per view called Survivor Series for Thanksgiving. For WEEKS leading up to that pay per view, WWF would truck around this giant egg prop to events, promising to reveal what was inside at Survivor Series. And after weeks and weeks of build up, and no-insignificant hype during the show itself, the evening finally climaxed with the egg hatching to reveal... a guy in a sub-fast food mascot turkey costume who did a dance in the ring with the announcer. That was the payoff. Such is the legend of the Gobbledy Gooker. At least in Far Out There world, they had the decency to only waste one show hyping up their holiday disappointment.

But, of course, Vengeance doesn't look anything like the ol' Gobbledy Gooker, what with this not being a Thanksgiving series and all. Does that mean I actually made up something original for once? HAHAHAHAHAnope. It turns out there's plenty of terrible Christmas gimmicks to chose from as well, such as The Christmas Creature from USWA. So this is really an in-joke twofer. Heck, I should have tried to find a way to slip in a little reference to Xanta Klaus just for completion's sake.

I'm going to say that the video's you linked were marginally less stupid than this. If only because there would be less expectation of a Wrestler coming out of an Egg than out of a Present Box. But that's just me.

Blitz, I think you forgot to add the alt text.
Leaving that aside, the booing upon 'Gobbledy Gooker's appearance was great.
I'm going to guess some sort of similar sound effect is audible in-universe right now, though, if with some weird 'sci-fi' twist.
Robotised booing?

Let's all pretend the lack of Alt Text is intentional to represent the dead silence of the crowd. Yeah, let's all say that!

Vengeance complained to the FOT management that despite being much beloved by fans, he hasn't had any screen time in 2 years, and this is what they gave him. Guess he will know better than to complain any more.

The really sad thing is that people actually paid pay-per-view money (I assume) to see the guy in the turkey suit.
