In the dark match, Drew McIntyre defeated Alex Riley.
"Yes, sir, we promised you a great main eventů"
The show opens with a video package highlighting the main feuds heading into tonight, as well as the tables, ladders, and chairs theme of the show done in the style of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas'.
The pyro hits, and Michael Cole welcomes us to the show. The set looks pretty much exactly like it did last year, but it's still a pretty impressive looking set. Cole and Lawler start hyping the show, but they're interrupted by Vickie Guerrero, who comes out to wish the crowd a Merry Christmas, and introduces her client, the greatest gift anyone could ask for, the US Champion, Dolph Ziggler.
United States Title Match
Zack Ryder vs. Dolph Ziggler (c)
The bell rings and Ziggler takes Ryder off his feet right away. Ziggler gloats for a bit before taking Ryder down to the mat a second time. We get a lock up, and Ryder responds with a couple of arm drags. Ziggler locks in a head lock and hits a shoulder block as soon as he's pushed off by Ryder. Ziggler blocks a hip toss, but Ryder catches Ziggler mid-air and slingshots him into the corner before clotheslining Ziggler over the top, and diving through the ropes to the outside on top of Ziggler.
Ryder takes Ziggler back toward the ring and the two fight on the apron, with Ziggler scoring a DDT on the apron. Ryder is able to make it back into the ring before the 10 count, and Ziggler starts stomping away immediately before hitting a neckbreaker and taking time to gloat a bit more. Ziggler hits eight quick elbow drops in succession. Ziggler jumps up and hits an elbow drop to the back of Ryder's head, getting a two count. When Ryder gets back up to his feet he hits Ziggler with a couple of right hands, but he's put right back down with a back elbow from Ziggler. Ziggler locks in a rear chin lock in an attempt to wear down the Long Island superstar.
Ryder fights up to his feet, but he's put right back down to the mat by Ziggler, who scores another two count before locking in another rear chin lock. Ryder is able to fight up to his feet and buries a couple of rights in Ziggler's gut, but he's caught with another back elbow and an Olympic slam from Ziggler which nets him another near fall.
