We are in Austin, Texas and your announcers are Josh ‘Visting Mom for the holiday’ Mathews and Miz.
Mick Foley makes his way to the ring dressed as Santa. He gives gifts to fans on the way to the ring.
He says Ho Ho Hello and mentions that it is only six more nights until Christmas Eve. He wanted to stop here to wish everyone a Merry . . .
Ryback and Curtis Axel interrupt Mick. Ryback says that is what happens when you stop working out. He says that is a really big guy. Axel says that they would have baked him a whole bunch of cookies for Christmas but he ate them all.
Ryback calls Santa fat and then he asks him if he has anything better to do than hand out gifts to all of the needy, bratty Feed Me Morons.
Santa wants to know the meaning of the intrusion.
Axel says that they are here to lighten his load. Ryback says that they are going to put the gifts in the right hands.
Axel takes Santa’s bag and Ryback says that he doesn’t like Santa Claus because when he was a little big guy, he asked for an Olympic Weight System and he got a Thighmaster.
Ryback says that Mick is not the real Santa Claus. He pulls the beard and it doesn’t come off.
Miz gets up and tells Ryback that nobody touches Santa on his watch. He asks them if they are going to bully Santa and throws out a series of reallys. He says that it is the holidays. They should be singing holiday carols.
Miz asks Santa if he wants to join him in a holiday carol. Miz wants to sing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, but he has changed the words so they make fun of Axel and Ryback.
Santa suggests that there be a match with Curtis Axel against The Miz. Since Ryback is never far behind, Santa will be in Miz’ corner.
We go to commercial.
