John Morrison, R-Truth, Matt Hardy & Finlay def. CM Punk, Luke Gallows, Intercontinental Champion Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler World Heavyweight Champion Undertaker vs. Rey Mysterio (No Contest) Cryme Tyme def. local competitors Mickie James & Maria def. Beth Phoenix & Layla Unified Tag Team Champions DX def. The Hart Dynasty
ORLANDO, Fla. – On Christmas Night, it was Unified Tag Team Champions DX and Rey Mysterio who closed out 2009 on a high note, looking much better than all of their rivals.
Unified Tag Team Champions DX def. The Hart Dynasty (PHOTOS | WATCH) In their first title defense since winning the Unified Tag Team Championship, DX came to SmackDown to take on The Hart Dynasty. The champions were looking to continue the Christmas cheer they spread on Monday Night Raw (Raw recap). After a competitive contest, it was DX who reigned supreme when HBK hit David Hart Smith with some holiday Sweet Chin Music, followed up by a devastating pedigree from Triple H.
With DX looking on, The Hart Dynasty attacked Chris Jericho (PHOTOS | WATCH) Earlier in the night, The Hart Dynasty and Chris Jericho traded verbal barbs over who should be No. 1 Contenders to DX. Appearing on the arena screen, DX poked fun at their challengers, including offering The Hart Dynasty a one-way, paid trip back to Canada. But, it was Jericho who suffered the ultimate insult when David Hart Smith and Tyson Kidd drove him into the canvas, leaving him writing in pain.
World Heavyweight Champion Undertaker vs. Rey Mysterio ended in a No Contest (PHOTOS | WATCH) For the first time ever, World Heavyweight Champion Undertaker defended his title against Rey Mysterio on SmackDown. After a brutal chokeslam, it looked like The Deadman had Mysterio right where he wanted. But then from out of nowhere, a raging Batista intervened, hitting The Phenom with a spinebuster. Capitalizing on the downed champ, Mysterio stunned the champion with the 619. Seizing the moment, The Animal dropped Undertaker with a hard-hitting spear. The chaos reached its climax when Mysterio hit Batista with the 619 and crushed him with a seated senton. After the dust settled, it was The Ultimate Underdog who escaped relatively unscathed, leaving Undertaker and Batista reeling from his lightning-fast assault.
John Morrison, R-Truth, Matt Hardy & Finlay def. CM Punk, Luke Gallows, Intercontinental Champion Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler (PHOTOS | WATCH) With a host of rivalries intertwined in one match, the WWE Universe was treated to an action-packed eight-man tag match to kick off the night. After a competitive battle from both sides, it was John Morrison who picked up the win for his team by hitting Starship Pain on Dolph Ziggler. As the No. 1 Contender, John Morrison will take on Intercontinental Champion Drew McIntyre in a title match next week on SmackDown.
Cryme Tyme def. local competitors (PHOTOS | WATCH) Before their match even began, Cryme Tyme got in the Christmas spirit by relieving a “bad Santa” of his toys in the locker room area and re-gifting them to excited members of the WWE Universe. Although their challengers appeared to be worthy opponents, Cryme Tyme swiftly asserted their dominance in the contest. Using his massive power, Shad tossed one challenger out of the ring, then effortlessly lifted the other atop his shoulders, setting him up perfectly for the devastating G-9 from JTG.
Mickie James & Maria def. Beth Phoenix & Layla (PHOTOS | WATCH) Prior to the match, Women’s Champion Michelle McCool and Layla continued in their mean-spirited ways of hurling insults at Mickie James. Despite the hurtful words, Mickie was able to focus and get the pinfall over Layla, giving her and Maria the victory. Then, after the bell, the fired-up Mickie headed straight for McCool, who was seated with the announce team. But before Mickie could get to her rival, Beth Phoenix attacked from behind, slamming Mickie onto the announce table. Reveling in the attack, Michelle stood over her fallen rival and engaged in a stare down with The Glamazon. Despite the tension in the air, the Christmas clashing had come to an end.
Update on the Kid Kash arrest situation Posted by Chris Kaufman on 12/26/2009 at 03:31 AM
Kid Kash (David Cash) posted the following message on his Facebook page regarding the newspaper article that said he was arrested for identity theft and other offenses:
hello everyone.. just getn home from gatlinburge< tn and everyone is asking if ive been arrested and the answer is NO!!! im not in JAIL!!! someone who lives in the same city as me with the same name.. lol... SO once again>> i have not been arrested..
- As noted before, WWE recently gave Charlie Haas a raise after he asked for his release. WWE has decided to continue to pay him while he sits at home and currently, the creative team has no plans for him to return to the storylines.
It was noted earlier this year that several WWE Superstars had their pushes stopped due to excessive marijuana test failures. After MVP appeared on Opie & Anthony last week, one could assume that he was one of those stars.
MVP appeared on the radio show on December 16th to plug WWE's Troops Tribute but talked about how much he enjoys pot. MVP said when he was in Iraq, one of the soldiers told him that a lot of marijuana is grown in Afghanistan and MVP said he's now disappointed this year that he didn't get to go to Afghanistan.
MVP said that while he enjoys pot, he no longer does it because WWE's $2,500 fines started to stack up.
MVP also told a story about doing a tryout match in TNA years ago when a "washed-up wrestler" came up to him and said he, MVP, was sitting in his seat. MVP sensed the guy was picking a fight and claims he got up and punched the wrestler in the face. MVP wouldn't name who he claimed to punch but said his name rhymes with Maven. Obviously he was talking about Raven.
He was also asked about ring rats and said he got into the business 10 years too late because there are no longer women waiting in the hotels after shows. MVP blames this on Vince McMahon putting on a PG show.
Ezekiel Jackson vs. Vladimir Kozlov ended in a No Contest by Double Count-Out Chavo Guerrero def. Primo Kane def. Mike Knox
On the Christmas Eve edition of “WWE Superstars” on WGN America, six Superstars battled it out in their own festive fights, while two more Superstars unveiled a special present for the WWE Universe next week on SmackDown.

Kane def. Mike Knox (PHOTOS | WATCH) One wouldn’t think The Big Red Monster would be celebrating on Christmas Eve, but after defeating the very vicious Mike Knox, it seems that Kane has a reason to embrace the holiday spirit. It wasn’t easy, but that didn’t seem to bother SmackDown’s resident Red Monster, and in the end, after connecting with a devastating chokeslam, Kane got the 1-2-3. It seems only appropriate that the sadistic one’s trademark red be met with green envy after his win this holiday season.
John Morrison confronts Intercontinental Champion Drew McIntyre (PHOTOS | WATCH) It was only a matter of time until The Friday Night Delight invoked his rematch clause, and he did it at a time that will surely take McIntyre’s holiday spirit away. But, at the Scottish Superstar’s expense comes a great gift for the WWE Universe, as next week on SmackDown, John Morrison will fight McIntyre in an attempt to regain the Intercontinental Title. This, of course, didn’t sit well with the Scotland native, and after Morrison informed him of the news, he attempted to attack The Friday Night Delight but instead got a ride on Starship Pain for his efforts, giving just a slight preview of might be to come next Friday.
Chavo Guerrero def. Primo (PHOTOS | WATCH) In recent months, Guerrero hasn’t had the best of luck, but if Thursday night was any representation of things to come in 2010, Chavo will certainly be looking toward a happy New Year. Battling it out with Primo is never an easy feat, and throughout the match, there were moments where it seemed like the self-proclaimed “Mexican Warrior” was done for. However, when it was all said and done, Guerrero still walked out as the victor after securing the three-count.
Ezekiel Jackson vs. Vladimir Kozlov ended in a No Contest by Double Count-Out (PHOTOS | WATCH) With the match ending in a Double Count-Out, it’s doubtful that either man will be too cheerful this holiday season – not that a bright demeanor is exactly either of their M.O.’s. Both of these men want a piece of each other, as has been made evident over the past several weeks, and a No Contest does nothing for the two in seeking superiority over the other. Being the victor last week, Jackson might have the slight advantage in the battle between these two colossuses, but it is guaranteed that things are far from over between these former knights of The Ruthless Roundtable.
Will DX be a backstage problem for Bret Hart? Posted by Chris Kaufman on 12/24/2009 at 12:01 PM
According to Dave Meltzer, sources in WWE are interested to see how the politics will be with Triple H once Bret Hart is back in the company. Many are curious to see how diplomatic Triple H will be with the whole situation.
Most feel that given the recent changes in his life, Shawn Michaels will get along fine and wouldn't be surprised if he gave Hart an apology.
Chris Jericho to continue appearing on RAW? Posted by Chris Kaufman on 12/23/2009 at 09:25 PM
Evidently, WWE is not even giving lip service to its storyline on Chris Jericho no longer being allowed to appear on RAW as he's being advertised to wrestle John Cena at some RAW television tapings in January. It should be noted, however, that they are dark matches.
Velvet Sky and April Hunter have apparently made amends after working Monday's Impact taping in Orlando together. The TNA Knockout posted a candid photo of herself with Hunter backstage at the show with a caption reading "Truce!!!! :)"
Before joining TNA, Sky, whose real name is Jamie Szantyr, formed a tag team with Hunter known as T&A — which was apparently a spoof on "Divas." The group gained notoriety and worked a number of independent shows together over the course of 2005 and 2006. However, in late 2006, the two best friends had a really ugly split that eventually spilled over online with both women's wrestlers personally attacking each other through various blog posts. Apparently, the two had not spoken to each other since their break-up.
The Kingston Times News has reported that former WWE & TNA star Kid Kash, real name David Cash, has been arrested on charges of identity theft, theft of property and forgery. Specifically, he was arrested on 4 counts of identity theft, 2 counts of forgery under $500 and four counts of theft of property under $500.
According to the report, the charges came about when Cash allegedly used the credit card of a female acquaintance four times without her permission.
Cash is maintaining that he had permission to use the card, and had used it multiple times with the female's permission.
Cash is being held on $10,000 bond in a Washington County detention center in Tennessee and is scheduled to go before the court on 1/4/10.
- Regarding WWE signing The Briscoe Brothers, WWE has strong interest in bringing them in but the team wouldn't be able to sign until their ROH deals are up. ROH is aware of the situation between WWE and the Briscoes and has no problems with them considering WWE.
When Eve went for the egg nog, Carlito said "yo sabia que te gustaba el huevo" In English, that means, "I knew you liked eggs" or in slang "I knew you liked balls". Huevo translated in English is egg. It means the same thing in spanish too but its also slang for testicles (balls) and can be construed that way depending on how you say it.
- According to Dave Meltzer, TNA has been putting pressure on Ric Flair to sign a contract with the company. Flair has been on vacation over the weekend, and the belief is that if he doesn't sign in time for the January 4th Impact, TNA might pull the offer off the table.
Thanks to James Caldwell of PWTorch.com for the following recap:
TNA's Jeff Jarrett says he expects the battle between WWE and TNA to be a "different game" by the end of 2010 with the addition of Hulk Hogan to the promotion.
Jarrett said the right things in an interview promoting an upcoming house show about TNA receiving a boost by adding the "most recognizable name in professional wrestling."
Jarrett said competing with WWE puts them in the conversation to start the year and their goal is to be at WWE's level by the end of the year.
"Are we going to come right out of the gate and beat them (WWE)? Are we claiming that? Absolutely not," Jarrett said. "But we're in the game, and competition is good. We are very optimistic that by the end of 2010, it'll be a different game."
Website claims that Scott Hall has signed with TNA
According to The Sports Courier, Scott Hall has in fact signed a contract with TNA Wrestling. The website's source states Hall, who is now 51, will return to the organization during its live three-hour broadcast on Monday, January 4, 2010.
According to multiple sources within TNA, Scott Hall is expected to appear on the live episode of iMPACT! opposite RAW on January 4, 2010. The two names I've been hearing a lot are Rob Van Dam and Scott Hall. We'll see come January 4th.
Hall, who is now 51, is expected to reform an Outsiders/nWo reunion with Kevin Nash and possibly others, but without the WCW labels due to World Wrestling Entertainment owning the trademarks. Hall's MySpace mood for the past week has said: "It's in the air.... can you feel it??.. something sensational is coming soon !!!!"
Sean 'X-Pac' Waltman's name has also been mentioned for the reunion, but the latest indication given is that he is not a lock to appear. It should be noted that Waltman is telling friends in Mexico that he is returning though.
Hall last appeared in TNA two years ago, briefly feuding with The Angle Alliance (Kurt Angle, AJ Styles and Tomko). Hall was scheduled to partner with Nash and Samoa at the December 2007 pay-per-view, Turning Point, but Hall no-showed the event. During the live show, Joe cut a heated promo on Hall while Nash stood in the background.
Despite Hall's poor track record with the company, recent reports regarding his behavior at independent shows have been positive. In a recent Twitter post, Nash vouched for Hall with the following: "Talked to Scott on Monday (December 7) and he sounded great!"
It is well known that Scott has an amazing mindset for the business but just has his demons. All indications right now though are that he is doing well.
Zack Ryder def. Tommy Dreamer ECW Homecoming Qualifying Match: Vance Archer def. Goldust ECW Homecoming Qualifying Match: Yoshi Tatsu def. Jack Swagger
ORLANDO, Fla. – Christmas arrived early for two Extreme Superstars – Yoshi Tatsu and Vance Archer – as the Extreme newcomers earned victories in two more ECW Homecoming Qualifying Matches on ECW on Syfy.
ECW Homecoming Qualifying Match: Yoshi Tatsu def. Jack Swagger (PHOTOS | WATCH) Former ECW Champion Jack Swagger returned to the Land of the Extreme Tuesday night to participate in the ECW Homecoming. “The All-American American” took on one of ECW’s newest and brightest stars, Yoshi Tatsu.
Despite Swagger’s strong, and dominating effort, he fell to a final buzzsaw kick by the Japanese Superstar, and returns to Raw without a future chance to reclaim the ECW Championship. The exciting young Tatsu celebrated his monumental victory and has qualified for the Homecoming Finale along with Kane, Vance Archer and Ezekiel Jackson, the latter who faces Vladimir Kozlov on “WWE Superstars” Thursday night on WGN America at 8/7 CT.
Tune in to ECW on Syfy next Tuesday night at 10/9 CT when ECW Alum Evan Bourne and former ECW Champion Matt Hardy return for the ECW Homecoming and will compete in a series of matches that will determine who will face ECW Champion Christian for the title at Royal Rumble.
ECW Homecoming Qualifying Match: Vance Archer def. Goldust (PHOTOS | WATCH) In Tuesday’s ECW Homecoming Qualifying Match, Vance Archer earned his spot in the The Homecoming Finale with a victory over Goldust. The intense newcomer bested the WWE veteran in one of the biggest victories of his young career. Archer is painting his “masterpiece of agony” on ECW, enjoying every moment of demolishing his competition in the Land of the Extreme.
Last week, ECW General Manager Tiffany announced an exciting, new concept that will determine who receives the next ECW Championship Match. Over four weeks, the ECW General Manager will invite former ECW Superstars to compete with current ECW Superstars in The ECW Homecoming. Sixteen Superstars compete one-on-one and eight will advance to The Homecoming Finale, featuring an Over-the-Top Rope Challenge on the Jan. 12 edition of ECW on Syfy. The winner of the Challenge will receive an ECW Title Match against Christian at Royal Rumble!
Zack Ryder def. Tommy Dreamer (PHOTOS | WATCH) After former ECW Champion “The All-American American” Jack Swagger re-introduced himself to the WWE Universe on ECW on Syfy (WATCH), Zack Ryder returned to the ring – with Rosa Mendes by his side – to take on Tommy Dreamer. Ryder had been tormenting the ECW Original for weeks, telling Dreamer his career is finished, and that he’d be the Superstar to end it. Despite his formidable fight, Dreamer fell to Ryder’s Zack Attack.
“The Abraham Washington Show” with Trent Barreta & Caylen Croft (PHOTOS | WATCH) ECW’s newest tag team joined the critically-acclaimed “Abraham Washington Show” to discuss their plan to redefine ECW’s New Superstar Initiative.
“Miz & Morrison? They were all right. Hart Dynasty? Whatever. Barreta & Croft? We’re taking it to the next level,” Barreta bragged. “You can’t compare N64 to Xbox 360.”
It’s a bold statement from the video game playing best buddies, but they’ve promised to be the next WWE Tag Team Champions by next year’s ECW Homecoming.
TNA fans at WWE event Posted by Chris Kaufman on 12/22/2009 at 10:54 AM
- Apparently TNA's street team sent fans to the WWE TV tapings in Orlando on Sunday night to hand out TNA flyers. WWE and arena security ended up taking the flyers and kicking the TNA fans off the property.
- As seen tonight on RAW, a golf club wielding blonde woman hopped the guard rail during the show's opening segment in a fruitless attempt to strike an individual dressed in a tiger costume. The identity of the female in question is Beverly Mullins, who briefly appeared on ECW a few months ago as a backstage announcer by the name of Courtney Taylor. Mullins is currently training in the company's Tampa based developmental promotion, Florida Championship Wrestling.
Tommy Dreamer and TNA Posted by Mark Virginia on 12/22/2009 at 01:15 PM
- Everyone is expecting Tommy Dreamer to sign with TNA. One WWE source said they expect him to debut on the January 4th live show but most likely Dreamer will have some sort of no-compete clause since he has asked to be let out of his deal.
The Young Bucks for their TNA tryout at tonight's TNA tapings in Orlando, losing in a dark match to the Motor City Machine Guns in what was said to be a very fun match with lots of crazy spots. Word is that they impressed TNA management and were already coming in with lots of praise.
Jeremy Borash posted the following on Facebook tonight: "Watching Young Bucks vs Machine Guns in the ring in Orlando. Wow."
While TNA president Dixie Carter posted the following on her Twitter: "Young Bucks had a dark match with us today. Should TNA sign them?"
There could be some familiar faces on the live TNA iMPACT! on January 4th. Sean Waltman has been telling friends in Mexico that he is heading back to the company, and that Scott Hall is coming with him. With Kevin Nash winning the tag team title shot in the Feast or Fired match, an Outsiders/Wolfpack reunion could be on the way. You would likely have Hogan, Nash, Hall, Waltman, and possibly Bischoff. TNA obviously wouldn't be able to use the nWo name due to trademark issues with WWE.
As I noted last week here on the website, there is also talk of retiring the 6-sided ring. Apparently Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff are pushing for the return of the "more traditional" 4-sided ring. As of now, there has been no final decision made regarding the change.

Sabin tags in and hits an enzugiri, the Guns hit a double team move and follow it up with stereo superkicks, but Williams makes the save. Sabin hits a cutter on Williams to send him to the outside. Shelley and Sabin hit kicks to the head of Magnu in the corner and follow it up with a big cross body but it’s still not enough to finish off Magnus.
The Guns try for another double team but Williams breaks it up. The BI hit a doomsday European uppercut and Magnus pins Sabin for the three count.

- After her victory, Tara cuts a promo for the TNA fans. She looks like she’s getting emotional. She thought the peak of her career was defeating Awesome Kong in the cage but she says winning the TNA Knockouts Title tonight is the highlight.
Feast or Fired Match: Jay Lethal, Consequences Creed, Cody Deaner, James Storm, Robert Roode, Eric Young, Sheik Bashir, Kiyoshi, Rob Terry, Kevin Nash and Samoa Joe We go to the ring for our next match where three stars will get title shots and one shot will get fired. Out first is Jay Lethal with Consequences Creed. Out next is Cody Deaner, Beer Money, Eric Young, Homicide, Kevin Nash, Rob Terry, Sheik Bashir and Kiyoshi. A new blonde valet is with Kevin Nash, the winner of the Big Sexy World Tour contest they say. Thought they dropped that storyline? Samoa Joe is the last man out. All 12 enter the ring and here we go.
Everything just breaks down as soon as the bell rings and everyone is brawling. Some of the action spills to the outside where people get their heads bashed into various things, but the camera is jumping around too quickly. Lethal is close to grabbing a case but Kiyoshi pulls him down. The crowd is chanting for Joe, and everyone is still just brawling everywhere. Deaner almost gets a case but Bashir is able to take him down. He goes for a case and Deaner returns the favor.

Joe is in the ring to fight with Lethal Consequenses. He takes Lethal down with a uranage, but Creed jumps off the turnbuckle on Joe. Everyone hits some big moves on everyone else in super-quick succession, but Lethal ends up being able to go for the case, Homicide is right there though, with a gringo cutter from the top rope.

Team 3D, Jesse Neal and Rhino vs. Hernandez, Pope Dinero, Matt Morgan and Suicide Out first is the team of Team 3D, Jesse Neal and Rhino. Out first for the next team is Hernandez. He must spend four minutes in the ring alone before his partners come out.
All four men look to jump Hernandez at the outset of the match, but they decide to leave it to Rhino. Rhino scores a quick kick to Hernandez’s stomach and he follows up with a couple of quick blows, tagging out to D-Von who beats down on Super Mex in the corner. Hernandez is able to fight back with a big slingshot shoulder block. Hernandez fights off everyone but Neal, who distracts him long enough for D-Von to attack from behind.

Ray hits a couple of punches and an elbow to the back of the head, and when Hernandez tries to fight back Ray comes out with a quick lariat to put him down. Rhino tags in, and he dodges a splash from Hernandez, countering with a belly to belly suplex. Rhino hits the gore and goes for the pin but Hernandez kicks out at two.
Rhino goes for another gore, but Hernandez sidesteps it and pins Rhino, scoring the three count. Rhino is eliminated. All three remaining men are in to beat down Hernandez. Jesse Neal goes to the outside and he grabs a chair, Ray tells him to hit Hernandez, but the music of Hernandez’s team hits, and they are all down to the ring, and it’s four on three. The faces clean house and send all the heels packing to the floor. Hernandez follows out with a big dive over the top rope.
Pope sends Neal into the ring into Suicide who tries for the pin, but only gets two. Suicide hits an elevated dropkick in the corner that’s good for another near fall.

Neal’s advantage doesn’t last long as Suicide hits a big dropkick. Neal fights back again with a couple of knees, but when he tries for a splash, Suicide ducks out of the way. Neal hits Suicide with a chair, but he’s not DQed, Hernandez in turn hits Neal with the chair, and apparently he gets DQed, so Hernandez has been eliminated.
3D come in and hit a quick 3D on Suicide, D-Von gets the quick pin and Suicide has been eliminated. Pope is in, but Ray just beats down on him for a bit. Pope is able to fight back with a couple of big right hands and he finally puts Ray down with a huge shoulder block. Apparently Neal was eliminated as well. Pope hits Rau with a coupleof big elbows, and when D-Von comes in, he catches a couple as well, as well as a double smack. Pope goes up top and hits a shoulderblock from the top, but it’s only good for a two count.
3D hit another quick 3D on the Pope, and he’s the next man eliminated. Matt Morgan is the only man left for his team, and he’s getting lots of support from the crowd. 3D attack together and push him back into the ropes, where they beat away at him. 3D choke away at him, and apparently the ref just isn’t going to do anything about it. Morgan fights back with a double clothesline that puts down both members of 3D. Morgan hits a big splash on D-Von, then Ray, then D-Von again. He hits rapid fire elbows on D-Von and tries for a chokeslam on Ray, but D-Von clips his knee from behind.
3D choke Morgan on the ropes and the crowd wants tables. D-Von rips away at Morgan’s face and Ray calls for another 3D. Morgan fights out and hits a Carbon footprint on D-Von, that’s enough to put him down for a three count, and D-Von has been eliminated. Ray is in quickly to beat up on Morgan and he chops away at him in the corner.
Morgan starts to fight back but Ray resorts to a low blow. Ray tries for a big splash, but Morgan avoids it. Morgan tries for the Hellavator, but Ray counters with a DDT that’s good for a near fall. Ray goes to the outside and grabs the same char that was used earlier, but when he comes into the ring, he end up eating the chair when Morgan hits a carbon footprint into the chair into Ray’s face. Morgan pins Ray, and we have a winner.
Winner: Matt Morgan

TAMPA – Two-time MLB World Series Champion Johnny Damon has earned a reputation for taking the ball deep. And while he wasn’t wielding a wooden bat, the MLB All-Star nonetheless knocked it out of the park in his role as the special guest host of Raw.
DX welcomed their newest mascot: Hornswoggle (PHOTOS | WATCH) Despite their differences, Triple H and Shawn Michaels finally succumbed to Hornswoggle’s overwhelming desire to join DX. The moment of truth came even after the two were found guilty of “intentional infliction of emotional distress” earlier in the evening.
Momentum had began to snowball after Big Show entered the ring, demanding to be granted a Christmas wish: That his tag team partner, Chris Jericho, be reinstated to Raw. It appeared as if Santa Claus, who had dropped by Raw, was fully prepared to grant Show’s wish. Hornswoggle, however, smelled a rat and yanked off Santa’s beard to reveal Jericho himself.
After that revelation, the former Unified Tag Team Champions appeared determined to punish ‘Swoggle. A Yuletide of little people, however, flooded the ring in defense of their pint-sized pal. Jeri-Show dispensed of the miniature masses until only ‘Swoggle remained. Just as it appeared to be curtains for the little guy, DX charged the ring for the save. Afterward, perhaps moved by the spirit of the season, The Game and HBK welcomed their biggest little fan into the DX dynasty as their mascot as long as he dropped the lawsuit.
United States Champion The Miz def. Santino Marella (PHOTOS | WATCH) You better not shout, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why … “Santino Claus” is coming to Raw. The Italian Stallion donned a Santa outfit and passed out toys to the crowd before meeting United States Champion The Miz in the squared circle. Unfortunately for “Santino Claus,” The Miz wasn’t in quite the holiday mood and pinned his jolly opponent’s shoulders for the three-count.
WWE Champion Sheamus def. MVP; Sheamus vs. John Cena announced for next week (PHOTOS | WATCH) In his first match on Raw since defeating John Cena at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs for the WWE Championship, Sheamus showed his critics just what makes him so very extraordinary. The Celtic Warrior welcomed a challenge from Montel Vontavious Porter or MVP. While The Ballin’ Superstar has held court with some of WWE’s most notable Superstars, Sheamus appeared too intense to overcome as the WWE Champion clocked his first victory as titleholder.
If John Cena has anything to say about it, it will also be his last. After the match, Cena confronted Sheamus, requesting a title match. Rather than let his emotions take control, The Celtic Warrior merely snarled at his nemesis before exiting in silence.
Having watched the confrontation, special guest host Johnny Damon arranged a title match next Monday night between the two resolute warriors.
Raw to welcome Timbaland as special guest host next week Turn up the volume and tear off the knob – Timbaland will be honored next Monday night as Raw’s special guest host. The Grammy Award-winning record producer, singer and rapper drops in to pump up the festivities.
Chris Masters def. Carlito (PHOTOS | WATCH) Being attracted to Eve? Utterly understandable. Being sleazy and trying to steal a kiss? Completely uncool. When Carlito attempted to use mistletoe to snag a smooch from the beautiful Diva, Chris Masters felt the need to intervene. Rather than watch the two men beat their chests – or in Masters’ case, flex his – special guest host Johnny Damon arranged a match.
Despite an attempt to save face, Carlito quickly fell victim to The Master Lock. For Masters, the victory was only a prelude to a kiss. After the match, Eve pulled mistletoe from her pocket and gave her hero a nice liplock.
John Cena def. Jack Swagger (PHOTOS | WATCH) Just one week after defeating both CM Punk and Randy Orton to earn the 2009 Slammy Award for Superstar of the Year, John Cena demonstrated just why he holds the prestigious prize. Cena stepped into the ring to tackle the challenge of Jack Swagger. “The All-American American” put up one impressive fight, but Cena, who had vowed not to lose until he once again possesses the WWE Title, proved far too motivated and notched a notable win.
DX found guilty in Little People’s Court (PHOTOS | WATCH: PART 1 | PART 2) After enduring weeks of legal threats, Unified Tag Team Champions Triple H & Shawn Michaels finally attended “Little People’s Court,” where Hornswoggle testified in his case against the duo. The leprechaun was suing for “intentional infliction of emotional distress.” After a courtroom full of little people were shown videotaped evidence, such as The Game’s Pedigree of Hornswoggle weeks back, the judge in the case found the pair guilty.
Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry & Evan Bourne def. Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase (PHOTOS | WATCH) In the war pitting Randy Orton & Legacy against Kofi Kingston and pals, The Viper and his henchmen have managed to get the best of The Dreadlock Dynamo. Tonight, however, the union of the snake appeared on decline. Kofi, Mark Henry & Evan Bourne clashed with Orton, Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase; only this encounter would leave Kofi victorious as he led by example, earning the pin for his team.
Divas Champion Melina, Kelly Kelly & Gail Kim def. Maryse, Alicia Fox & Jillian (PHOTOS | WATCH) Professional baseball player Johnny Damon may be a free agent now, but the former New York Yankee proved that he still knows how to bring a crowd to their feet. To the delight of the Florida faithful, Damon informed them that not only would Santa be popping in to grant one lucky Superstar a wish, the first bout of the evening would be a Six-Diva Santa’s Little Helper Tag Team Match featuring Divas Champion Melina, Kelly Kelly & Gail Kim against Maryse, Alicia Fox & Jillian.
With Maryse and Alicia Fox both pining for the Golden Butterfly, the pair may have focused too much of their attention on Divas Champion Melina. As a result, Kelly Kelly managed to pin the equally beautiful Maryse for the victory.
