The show started as Hulk Hogan came out to the arena. Hogan came out in the attire of Santa Claus. He entered the ting and started in his signature style. He introduced himself as the Ho Ho Hogan. He said that he was there to spread cheer all over Monday Night Raw. The fans chanted ‘Hogan’ as he corrected them and asked them to cheer ‘Ho Ho Hogan.’
Hogan said that he wanted to give presents to all the WWE superstars and to the fans. First of all, he announced a one on one match between the Big Show and Roman Reigns. Then he announced a Miracle on 34th Street Fight between Bray Wyatt and Dean Ambrose.
The No 1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight championship John Cena came out to interfere Hulk Hogan. Michael Cole reminded that John Cena would meet Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight championship at the Royal Rumble pay per view event in five weeks. Cena started by praising Ho Ho Hogan. He said that everything was fine until what happened last week on Monday Night Raw.
Footage from last week’s Monday Night Raw was shown where Seth Rollins defeated John Cena in a Steel Cage Match. It was an excellent match, this match could make Seth Rollins’ career lied on the golden path. Both performers performed really well, Cena looked to be on the closest man to the victory when he nailed Rollins with the AA from on top of the turn buckle. Both men were down and then the Undisputed WWE World Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar entered into the arena. He entered inside the cage, for a certain time it seemed that he might be going for both men, but he attacked John Cena whom he was scheduled to face at Royal Rumble pay per view event. First he hit three German Suplexes on Cena followed by a crushing F5. Paul Heyman who accompanied Brock Lesnar entered the ring and offered a handshake with Seth Rollins. Seth shook his hands and seemed like they formed allies. Brock Lesnar asked Seth Rollins pick up the victory over John Cena in that match and left the arena. Seth Rollins first knocked Cena out with the Curb Stomp then he decided to exit the cage which allowed him to be victor of the match.
After the footage Cena told Hogan that he wanted to teach Rollins a lesion. He said that it was not fair and the decision should be reversed. It was not fair of Brock Lesnar hitting three German suplexes and F5 on him and Seth Rollins led his career in jeopardy after Crub Stomping him. But he admitted that he lost Seth Rollins last week fair and square. After that loss he changed his Christmas wish. All he wanted was a match against Seth Rollins on that night. He promised that he was ready for Seth Rollins, J & J security, Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar and everyone.
Hogan was about to say something but Seth Rollins interfered him. Seth Rollins came out along with the J & J security and stood on the entrance stage. Rollins said that he could believe what he just heard. It was all so ridiculous. Rollins Curb Stomped Rollins onto the mat that might be the reason he could not see what was wrong. He reminded that he told him a couple of weeks ago on Smackdown that nobody wanted to hear his stupid voice anymore. He said that he did not come out to disrespect him neither he came out to disrespect Hogan.
Rollins told that these two athletes brought the industry to the height that it never reached before. But Cena’s time was up, and Rollins’ time was now. He said that he was the future of the WWE and Cena had no chance of standing in his path anymore. He also said that Ho Ho Hogan running the show instead of the authority was a big joke. He said that he did not want to be Grinch here but Triple H and Stephanie McMahon deserved to stand in the ring as the in charge sharing all they had accomplished in the year 2014 but they were sitting at home, they were sad, they were depressed because they could see that people like Hogan were downgrading the show.
He reminded that all started back to Survivor Series when Cena and his team could not get the job done and they got the help from the most unlikely way from Sting. So regarding last week, Rollins considered Cena lucky. He was lucky because Rollins let him get up and walk out of the ring on his own feet. He addressed Hogan as Santa and said if he did not grant him his Christmas present then he might not be very lucky. The Christmas present that he wanted was he force John Cena to bring the authority back and that would be best for business.
Cena spoke out now and told Rollins to shut up. He threatened Seth Rollins to beat his a** off. He told Rollins that if he wanted Cena to shut up then he needed to come out and shut him up because he was not brining the authority back. Hogan said since Cena was the only one who could bring the authority back, then Hogan had to go an alternative, and that alternative would be Seth Rollins was going to face John Cena and that would be first match of the night.
