Storm enters the ring and says he will give them something to put him on the naughty list for. Storm turns the tree over and asks who in the blue hell the Santa is. He says he's Santa. Storm starts to air out his grievances for gifts he never received when he was a kid. Storm asks him what he asked for last year. Kaz and Daniels whisper, "Travis Tritt" in Santa's ear and he guesses, "a Travis Tritt CD." Storm says that he asks for a case of beer and hits the Last Call on Santa. Kaz and Daniels escape as Storm throws gifts and candy canes from Santa's sack to the crowd.
-We go to Austin Aries in the back who suddenly opens his eyes stares into the camera in a close-up shot. He asks if we got it. He says maybe his inner thoughts are on a whole different wave length for the cameras to pick-up. He says he will win the title tonight.

-We return to a 1.3.13 Sting vignette. He says he is coming for Aces & 8's.

Tara takes the advantage. Tara repeatedly drives Mickie's face into the mat. Tara whips her hard into the corner and gets 2.

Mickie starts to mount some momentum and hits some kicks and clotheslines out of the corner. Mickie hits a neckbreaker for 2. Mickie counters out of a Widow's Peak and hits a DDT but Jesse pulls Tara out of the ring and tries to leave with her.
