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 (Jamie Noblr and Joey Mercury), Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar and everyone.
Hogan was about to say something, maybe he was about to announce another one on one match between the former fifteen times world champion John Cena and Mr. Money in the bank Seth Rollins 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.
Match 1 – John Cena defeated Seth Rollins. It was a very good match. If redemption is on John Cena’s Christmas list, he can cross that one off. Thanks to the benevolence of Ho Ho Hogan, the 15-time World Champion got his rematch with Seth Rollins, who picked the wrong day to antagonize Kris Kringle and the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion. At first, Rollins seemed to have the bout firmly in hand, though his furious opening was thwarted when Cena tossed him full-on into J&J Security and gave Mr. Money in the Bank a taste of his mat-eating medicine with a top-rope leg-drop. J&J’s timely recovery gave Rollins one last chance to walk away with the win, but Cena countered with a double Attitude Adjustment to the outmuscled stooges and a second AA to Rollins for the win.
Match 2 – Fandango defeated Jack Swagger. It was quite shocking that they let Fandango pick up the victory over Swagger so easily. It took a bit to get going, but the new and improved Fandango finally has a win worthy of his self-imposed pedigree, not to mention a solid rebound after getting his lights punched out a pair of times by Roman Reigns last week. Fandango looked rough in the beginning against Jack Swagger, who’s hungry for a win of his own of late and, in fact, has a lingering bone to pick with Fandango. A Swagger Bomb pancaked the sturdy Superstar, though like any dancer worth his salt, Fandango found his footing with a pair of kicks to The Real American’s head, and a top-rope leg drop moments later
Match 3 – R Truth defeated Adam Rose. Adam Rose’s reckless gallivant through the WWE Universe came screeching to an uncharacteristically lemony halt in Minneapolis when Rose — looking to recapture the happy-go-lucky spirit of his Raw debut — instead danced his way right into a roll-up pin from R-Truth. The Bunny (stuck in a neck brace thanks to Kane) went to comfort his buddy and was beaten to a pulp by a furious Rose, who barely restrained himself from taking out some other Rosebuds on his way out the door. Rose beat the Bunny really very bad.
Match 4 – Roman Reigns defeated Big Show. In the battle of Roman Reigns and Big Show, it’s the 2014 Superstar of the Year who has struck first. With Reigns and Show finally getting a crack at each other after a week of insults and pre-emptive volleys, both big men wasted no time in laying into each other with reckless abandon. Sheer power gave Big Show an early leg up, though a timely comeback by Reigns knocked the giant out of the ring and the former WWE Tag Team Champion capitalized with a Superman Punch that sent Show tumbling over the announce table. The Big Dog made it back to the ring by the count of 10, but smart money says this battle is far from over.
Match 5 – Natalya defeated Brie Bella. Another win for Natalya, and a bit of payback against Nikki Bella to boot. The Queen of Harts, who last week knocked off both Bella Twins in a tag team match but got an iffy aftertaste thanks to Tyson Kidd’s questionable charity, got a singles win over Brie that continued her run of good fortune. She pulled it off despite a pair of running knees to the face that left the former Divas Champion seeing stars for minutes on end, though Brie waited too long to finish Natalya off and had her roll-up reversed as a result. The cherry on top came when Nikki (whose hat, for what it’s worth, Tyson ended up wearing) ran to her sister’s aid (or perhaps to distract Kidd anew) and Natalya knocked her off the apron before laying hands on Nikki’s Divas Title. Might Lady Bella have a challenger in waiting?
Match 6 – Los Matadores and El Torito defeated Stardust and Goldust. With all the Yuletide cheer going around, it’s no surprise the perpetually surly Gold & Stardust are looking to play Grinch. If only Rudolph hadn’t come around to rain on their parade. And by Rudolph, of course, we mean El Torito, who joined Los Matadores in a 3-on-2 Handicap Match in the guise of Santa’s most famous reindeer. Torito was all over the match, plaguing Stardust in the beginning and playing an inadvertent role in the finale when Goldust accidentally swung him into Stardust’s head. An anguished Bizarre One was left vulnerable to a Backstabber and springboard moonsault from Torito for the victory. Feliz Navidad …..
