There are a lot of negatives you could bring up about this movie; it's cheesy, the acting and plot are questionable, it drags in the middle, and the humour is way too basic. However it does qualify as a reasonably good Christmas movie and since that is what it is supposed to be then you can generally ignore most of those points.
There is a little something for everyone and it is certainly a tale about heavy-handed morals centred around the season of giving. Yes, you could watch Die Hard at Christmas if you are a twenty-something hipster with no children like me, but if you have a family and 'traditional values', then this is a pretty fun watch for kids and grown ups alike. The only thing that might put some people off is the small amount of male-female violence that is present, as well as the assertion that men and women should be treated equally both physically and mentally. Personally I think that makes this film stand out, but it might offend some others (although a lot of the positive steps the film takes in this area is undercut by the lead female character being so taken aback by the main's insistence that she is pretty, because you know, that is all women want out of life.)
Overall this is just a fun Christmas movie that can be enjoyed by families and wrestling fans, and if you are both then you will probably love it. If you are neither then it has some kitsch value but nothing too great, just watch and enjoy as some holiday filler.
