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.
-Aces & 8's discuss what happened out there around a table cluttered with beer bottles and beer caps. VP tells Devon they need smart muscle. Devon says he may have someone who may just be pissed off enough. They have a vote and it's unanimous that they will bring this guy in.
-Brooke chooses Mickie James behind the curtain and tells Velvet Sky to watch Tara because she might be next. Velvet gives Mickie a half-as**d "best of luck" and rolls her eyes. Mickie comes though the curtain and enters the ring. Tara comes out with Jesse.
TNA Knockouts Championship: Tara (c) vs. Mickie James
They bell rings and Mickie gets a very early near fall. Tara powers her way up and they have a nice back-and-forth. Jesse grabs Mickie's foot from the floor and Mickie hits the mat face-first. Tara takes the advantage. Tara repeatedly drives Mickie's face into the mat. Tara whips her hard into the corner and gets 2. Mickie counters a Spider Web into a crucifix pin attempt but Taryn is way out of position due to Jesse, and Tara kicks out. Tara goes for a standing moonsault but Mickie gets her knees up. 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. Mickie tackles Jesse from the top turnbuckle to the floor and sends Tara back in. Jesse holds Mickie's foot from the floor which allows Tara to drop her for the win.
Winner by pin AND STILL TNA Knockouts Champion: Tara
