Tonight's show is in Minneapolis, Minnesota and JBL, Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole will be announcing. The stage is set up for a Christmas theme.

- Hulk Hogan's music hits and he's out dressed as "Ho Ho Hogan." He says he's here to spread holiday cheer and starts a huge "Ho Ho Hogan." He's going to give presents to the superstars, as well as the WWE Universe.

John Cena's music hits, and he makes his way to the ring. He says he wants a Frozen sing-along playset for Christmas. They then show Cena getting attacked by Lesnar last week, costing him his cage match with Seth Rollins.

Cena wants a match with Seth Rollins for Christmas, and Rollins' music hits. He's out with J&J Security, who JBL calls his "evil elves." Rollins says he's the future of the WWE and the standard bearer.
