-- There’s a Christmas scene at the top of the entrance ramp with a Christmas tree, a big snowman and Santa Claus, lights. There are lots of chants for The New Day as everyone finds their seats. Good atmosphere already but the place is nowhere near packed, lots of empty seats on the second level
-- Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz. Ziggler comes out first to a huge pop. The Miz is out next to some heat. Miz stalls some and fans chant for Damien Sandow instead. Hot crowd for a hot opener, won by Ziggler after a superkick and a Zig Zag. Lots of good action with reversals of finishers and near falls.
-- Divas Match: Team BAD are out in Santa Claus hats. They cut promos and tried to get some heel heat. WWE Divas Champion Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Brie Bella were out next. Decent reactions for all but Brie was over the most by far. Becky, Brie and Charlotte get the win.
-- Sheamus cuts a promo on the big screen about getting back his title from Roman Reigns tonight.
-- Ryback vs. Rusev with Lana is next. Big reaction for Ryback when he came out. Another match with good back and forth action. Ryback with an impressive win after powering out of The Accolade and hitting Shellshocked.
-- Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman vs. WWE United States Champion Alberto Del Rio, with the title on the line is up next. Huge pop for Lesnar and Suplex City chants. Big fight feel as they get ready to go. Del Rio tries to take Lesnar down but catches three or four German suplexes. Del Rio comes back after sending Lesnar into the ring post. Rusev ends up running in and Lesnar wins by disqualification, Del Rio retains. Lesnar fought Rusev off and hit a German suplex and a F5. Lesnar went to make his exit but came back and hit Del Rio with another German and a F5. There was no Paul Heyman promo.
-- Kane, Tommy Dreamer and The Dudley Boyz defeated The Wyatt Family in a fun physical match. No tables but Luke Harper took a 3D for the win.
-- Kevin Owens vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose is next. Huge pops for both as they come out. Owens attacks Ambrose during the entrance to start the match. Ambrose gets the win in my favorite match of the night, just great from bell to bell. Ambrose won with Dirty Deeds.
-- Sheamus vs. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns is next. Huge pop for Reigns as he came through the crowd. Sheamus cut a pre-match promo ripping on Los Angeles. Good but predictable match with Reigns hitting a spear for the win. He cut a promo about this being his first title defense, then wished everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to end the show.
