World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry def. Daniel Bryan in a Steel Cage Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) With an injured ankle, World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry forged his way through a match with Daniel Bryan. Despite a painful LeBell Lock and ankle lock, Bryan could not break Henry’s will. And just when it looked like Bryan was going to climb out of the cage on two occasions, Henry managed to pull him back within the steel. In the end, a brutal World’s Strongest Slam from the second rope crushed Bryan – and his dream of becoming World Heavyweight Champion. Now, Henry has his sights set on facing Big Show at WWE TLC on Dec. 18. (PREVIEW)
Hornswoggle was granted the ability to talk (WATCH) After winning the All I Want for Christmas Battle Royal, Hornswoggle asked Santa for the ability to talk.

Hornswoggle won an All I Want for Christmas 20-Man Battle Royal (PHOTOS | WATCH) With the chance to seize a huge opportunity, 20 Superstars battled it out in an over-the-top war. Darren Young was the first to have his dreams shattered. After additional Superstars had their holiday wishes vanish, Heath Slater, Hunico, Tyler Reks and Jinder Mahal found themselves in the ring with … Hornswoggle. As the larger Superstars taunted the diminutive competitor, Sheamus, charged into the ring to clear house.
When it came down to Sheamus and Hornswoggle, The Celtic Warrior did his best to shake his opponent to the floor, as he clung onto the ropes for dear life. When the two stood on the apron, Sheamus gave Swoggle a final chance to step down to the floor, but he stood his ground. In a swift and crafty move, the smallest Superstar shoved Sheamus to the floor to claim a stunning victory. After the match, instead of pummeling Hornswoggle, Sheamus helped him rejoice in his victory.
Randy Orton def. David Otunga in a Miracle on 34th Street Fight (WATCH | PHOTOS) In complete control throughout the match, Randy Orton tossed David Otunga into various festive decorations in the arena. After a brutal DDT off the ring apron, it looked like it was game over for Otunga. But there was a glimmer of hope when Wade Barrett ambushed Orton. After downing The Viper, the brash Brit tossed Otunga back in the ring and walked away, thinking he set him up for the win. But WWE’s Apex Predator battled back, finishing off Otunga with an RKO.
Kofi Kingston def. Tyson Kidd (WATCH | PHOTOS) Making like a flying reindeer, Kofi Kingston donned Michael Cole’s Rudolph hat and red nose and defeated Kidd with an impressive high cross body from the top rope.
Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes attacked Booker T (WATCH) While talking to Matt Striker, Booker T was viciously attacked from behind by Cody Rhodes from and left writhing on the floor in pain. He was evaluated by medical personnel after the assault. Because of his condition, the scheduled match between Booker and Rhodes was canceled.
SmackDown hosted a holiday party (WATCH: PART I | PART II) To celebrate the big night, SmackDown hosted a holiday party with such luminaries as WWE Hall of Famers “Rowdy” Roddy Piper and Dusty Rhodes. Goldust was even in attendance. But when David Otunga tried to shut down the party citing the legal concerns about the rights to the party music being played, “Saint Mick” announced Otunga would compete against Randy Orton in the night's Miracle on 34th Street Fight.
Justin Gabriel def. Jinder Mahal (WATCH | PHOTOS) After playing Grinch and disparaging the holiday season in America, Jinder Mahal got what was coming to him against Justin Gabriel. When Ted DiBiase came to ringside dressed as Santa and handed out gifts to the WWE Universe, Mahal was clearly flustered. Seizing the moment, Gabriel attacked and finished off Mahal with a hard-hitting 450 Splash.
Brie Bella won a Divas Mistletoe on a Pole Match (PHOTOS | WATCH) With visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads, a ring full of Divas competed for a special prize they could cash in between now and Christmas. When Brie Bella prevailed she may have thought she won an opportunity for a Divas Title Match. But to her dismay, she found out from Foley what she really won – the opportunity to give a kiss to the Superstar of her choice between now and Christmas.
“Saint Mick” announced holiday themed matches (PHOTOS) Now that he’s back in WWE, admitted “Christmas fanatic” Mick Foley wasted no time spreading his unique brand of cheer on a special live holiday edition of SmackDown. Kicking off the night, “Saint Mick” announced a Miracle on 34th Street Fight and an All I Want for Christmas 20-Man Battle Royal – where the winner would get his special wish granted by Santa.
Of course, Saint Mick brought his favorite reindeer with him – “Rudolph” (Michael Cole), plus one of his elves (Josh Mathews), and “Booker Clause,” who did a Spin-a-Roonie for the WWE Universe.
Crashing the party, Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes emerged to talk trash to Booker T. In response, Saint Mick announced a match between Rhodes and Booker for later in the night. But to start things off, "St. Mick" announced a Divas Match.

On a related note, there is also some speculation that John Morrison may return in the next few months if he and WWE work out a deal. Others believe Morrison will take some time off from wrestling. Like Jericho, the argument is there that Morrison wouldn’t want to miss out on the big WrestleMania 28 payday.
It should also be noted that TNA is very interested in both John Morrison and Melina.
Impact Wrestling kicks off with a video package of Bobby Roode. It shows his entire family and what they think of him. They are not pleased with him at all. The video ends and the camera shows the arena. Just then, the music of Sting plays. Here comes the man in charge as he comes down the ramp and into the ring as the crowd roars.
Sting grabs a mic and begins to speak. He starts off by saying that there are a lot of people trying to take charge of this company, but Sting is in charge and he wants to talk to them. First, he calls out Bobby Roode! Roode’s music plays. Here comes the TNA World Champion! Roode slowly comes down the ramp as the crowd boos him. Just like his family, the fans aren’t pleased with him either. He gets in the ring and grabs a mic. He tells Sting that he is the world heavyweight champion. Roode says his calendar is filled as time is money, so he tells Sting to make it quick. Sting doesn’t care. Sting told Roode that it will be run his way, not Roode’s behavior. Sting says everyone is fine except for Roode. He then brings up Roode’s selfish ways by attacking people from behind. Roode talks back as he states it is good for television. He took out two people with his title…. “what an amazing way to go off the air,” Roode states. Roode then goes on to say that Sting only wanted him out there to say thanks to Roode for carrying this company and to bring it into the year 2012. Sting says he didn’t bring him out to say thanks. He tells Roode that for every bad thing Roode does, there will be even worse consequences! Just then, AJ Styles’ music hits and here comes the phenomenal one! He walks down the ramp as Roode is shocked and a bit nervous. Roode starts backing up in the corner as AJ gets in the ring. Roode says that Sting is fighting AJ’s battles for him.

Barely one week into his reign as WWE Champion, The Straight Edge Superstar defended his title in a bout where he would have lost the championship had he been disqualified. Attempting to take advantage of this stipulation, Del Rio removed a turnbuckle pad and brought a steel chair into the ring. But the WWE Champion had his opponent scouted and tossed the foreign object before sending the underhanded Superstar headfirst into the exposed turnbuckle for the cunning win.
Mick Foley hyped Tuesday’s LIVE SmackDown (WATCH | PHOTOS) Returning to Raw after his less-than-successful edition of “John Cena: This Is Your Life,” a festive Mick Foley came out in full Santa regalia and charmed the University of South Carolina with a WWE-inspired version of “'Twas the Night Before SmackDown.” With The Hardcore Legend overseeing the festivities and a World Heavyweight Championship Steel Cage Match, it’s a show you don’t want to miss.
Kane’s resurrection crept near (WATCH) It was somewhat hard to see clearly through the burning flames, but every longtime WWE fan knew exactly what they were looking at in this brief clip — the red and black mask Kane once wore to cover up the scars of childhood trauma. Although cryptic, the disturbing vignette promised one thing — The Devil’s Favorite Demon will soon return to torment WWE once again.
Zack Ryder def. Jack Swagger (WATCH | PHOTOS) The “Ryder Revolution” continued unabated in Columbia as The “Woo Woo Woo Kid” fist pumped his way to victory over the dangerous Jack Swagger. With that win, Ryder looked one step closer to receiving his United States Championship Match with Dolph Ziggler.
Daniel Bryan was confronted by Michael Cole and World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry (WATCH | PHOTOS) Days after his Money in the Bank “cash in” on World Heavyweight Champion Mark Henry was overturned due to Henry being injured, Daniel Bryan exchanged words with one of his biggest critics — Michael Cole. Calling Bryan a hypocrite for cashing in after he promised he wouldn’t, the sniveling announcer attempted to belittle the tenacious Superstar before he faces The World’s Strongest Man for the coveted title in a Steel Cage Match on SmackDown.
Not one to be rattled, Bryan made it clear that his new goal is to win the World Heavyweight Championship, which brought out a very ornery Mark Henry. Scoffing at his underdog challenger, the big man promised to induct the submission expert into the Hall of Pain. Instead of firing back an insult, Bryan blasted Henry’s injured leg, assuring the heavyweight’s tender ankle will still be vulnerable in 24 hours.
United States Champion Dolph Ziggler def. Randy Orton (WATCH | PHOTOS) Get ready for some endless braggadocio. After scoring a surprise victory over Randy Orton, the arrogant Dolph Ziggler looked ready to grab his iPhone and start Tweeting about his triumph, but the United States Champion’s win wasn’t exactly hard-fought. Distracted by his rival Wade Barrett who was sitting in on commentary, WWE’s Apex Predator took his eyes off his prey for a split-second and ended up falling victim to a Zig Zag. It was arguably a cheap victory, but that didn’t’ stop Ziggler from celebrating with, of all things, a headstand.
Kelly Kelly & Alicia Fox def. The Bella Twins (WATCH | PHOTOS) Following Kelly Kelly & Alicia Fox’s impressive tag win over the treacherous Bella Twins, WWE fans weren’t Tweeting about Kelly’s awesome headscissors takedown or Alicia’s flipping legdrop. Instead, everyone was talking about Divas Champion Beth Phoenix & Natalya who randomly jogged around the ringside area. The duo’s actions were unclear, but rest assured the “pin-up strong” pair will offer a nasty reason for their public exercise soon.
The Miz def. John Morrison in a Falls Count Anywhere Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) Once the WWE Tag Team Champions, The Miz and John Morrison have argued for years over who became the Marty Jannetty of the pair. The WWE Universe may have received the answer to that question tonight. Bashing JoMo’s leg with a steel pipe before The Prince of Parkour even entered the ring, The Awesome One got a big advantage early and proceeded to punish his opponent with a kendo stick. Although he battled valiantly, Morrison was deemed unable to compete after being knocked for a loop by a Skull Crushing Finale on the entrance ramp — the same maneuver The Miz used to put R-Truth out of action last Monday.
As The Prince of Parkour’s broken body was stretchered away, a remorseless Miz grabbed a microphone and promised that his brutal attacks will not end tonight.
John Cena entered “Piper’s Pit” with “Rowdy” Roddy Piper (WATCH | PHOTOS) “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has never shied away from controversy, so WWE fans weren’t exactly surprised when Hot Rod flat-out asked John Cena if the WWE Universe’s boos were starting to get to him. Always cool under pressure, the Cenation leader refused to gripe and instead insisted that he can’t control the way the crowd reacts, but he can control what happens in the ring. Cena’s honorable response did not convince Piper, who made it clear that if the powerful Superstar doesn’t face his critics before WrestleMania, he may suffer for it. The Scotsman then added an exclamation to his statement by handing the former WWE Champion his Hall of Fame ring before slapping him across the face.
Although he was rattled by the strike, Cena did not attack the fiery legend. Instead, he returned the ring and quietly exited the squared circle.
WWE released another cryptic video on RAW this week. Despite rumors to the contrary, the cryptic promos airing for January 2012 are meant for Chris Jericho as of this writing.
News came out several weeks ago that talks fell through between WWE and Jericho but they are still ongoing as of right now. Also, Jericho recently said he would never wrestle for WWE again and when asked what he would be doing in January, he responded “Working in Hawaii”. That’s likely a cover-up.
Word is that the deal between WWE and Jericho is not done yet but Vince McMahon wanted to get it out there now. Obviously Vince McMahon feels a deal will be made. WWE officials want Jericho on the RAW brand to help boost ratings.
-- On Skip Sheffield's Facebook page, he was tagged in a photo by a fan who ran into him earlier this month at an auto shop in Florida. The fan says Sheffield told him he will be returning to WWE television under the name Ryback.
Sheffield was removed from the Raw Superstars page on WWE.com earlier this week, thus indicating that the character is through. WWE recently applied to trademark Ryback, which suggests that he will be repackaged with a new character upon his return from injury. Prior to assuming the cowboy persona in WWE's developmental system, he appeared as Ryback, an indestructible "Terminator" style character billed from "The Future."
- Jeff Hardy is currently working through a back injury that is limiting him on what he can do in the ring. Hardy's injury is the reason why his match against Jeff Jarrett was cut short at the Turning Point pay-per-view. Hardy reportedly threw his back out several weeks before Turning Point.
TNA Knockout Says Contract Has Expired, Expects to Part Ways
Little seen TNA Knockout Jackie Moore has revealed on Twitter that her contract with TNA is up and that she expects them to remove her from the roster. Jackie wrote:
“I guess they will remove me from the roster page soon….contract is up.”
Jackie has not been seen on Impact Wrestling in months since she and ODB returned over the summer in a feud with Velvet Sky. The pair returned as outsiders, disgruntled about losing their jobs with TNA in the past and eventually “earned” new contracts. However, both have been seen even less since becoming full-fledged Knockouts. ODB was recently used in the 10-Knockout gauntlet match on Impact while Jackie hasn’t been brought in for the tapings in recent months.
