[ REVIEWED BY BRAD DYKENS ]

WWE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Randy Orton defeated WWE champion Mike “The Miz” Mizanin w/Alex Riley by DQ: They showed clips of Jerry “The King” Lawler defeating The Miz in a Non-title match the night before on RAW. After a long match, Randy Orton basically had the match won, knocked Riley off the ring apron, and then hit the Miz with an RKO! Orton went for the pin, but Riley jumped back in and broke it up for a cheap disqualification. Orton disposed of Riley and then set up for a punt kick on the Miz. Riley slid back in and got an RKO from Orton, allowing the Miz to escape the ring with his brains in tact.

IN THE RING
Santa Clause (The Big Show) & Mrs. Clause (Rosa Mendes) and an Elf (Hornswoggle) + Cody Rhodes: Santa Clause came out and sat down, but the chair broke and he had to compose himself. Hornswoggle got him another chair and that one didn’t break. Santa read a Holiday poem about stuff that happened at TLC. Santa also joked about humiliating Cody Rhodes at the show. Rosa was so Latina hot. Santa also plugged the Knucklehead DVD and wished everyone a Merry Christmas! They all started tossing WWE merchandise into the crowd. Suddenly, Cody Rhodes showed up and attacked Hornswoggle and destroyed all the presents before Big Show could get in the ring (too slow).

BACKSTAGE SEGMENT
Todd Grisham & Beth Phoenix + WWE Tag Team champions Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov: Todd Grisham showed a clip of Beth taking a nasty bump on her neck falling out of the ring at the TLC PPV. Beth said she was thankful that she wasn’t hurt too bad and she learned not to take anything for granted. Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov came in and Santino acknowledged his difficult break-up with Beth years ago. Santino said he still cares about Beth and wanted to see if she was okay. Beth said it was sweet of Santino and she was okay – adding she was a strong woman. Santino said he remembers. Santino wanted to share a kiss with Beth, and Kozlov held a piece of mistletoe over Santino’s head. Beth reminded Santino that he was seeing Tamina, but Santino said that was on RAW, and this is SmackDown!. Santino puckered up and closed his eyes, but Beth pushed the mistletoe over Kozlov’s head and gave HIM a big kiss! Santino flipped out when he opened his eyes and saw his tag team partner with Beth’s lipstick on his lips!

SINGLES MATCH
Santino Marella w/Vladimir Kozlov defeated Chavo Guerrero: Santino used “The Cobra” to finish Chavo Guerrero off!

IN THE RING
World Heavyweight champion Edge + Kane: Edge talked about hurting from head to toe right now because of the TLC match, but it was absolutely worth it. Edge talked about all of his wildest dreams coming true in the WWE, before he was interrupted by former champion Kane. Kane said he was sick of Edge’s story. Edge said he wasn’t finished. Kane said Edge doesn’t get to write the ending of his story. Kane said Edge’s story ends with him breaking his body and taking back his World Heavyweight title. Edge wanted to cut to the chase, and challenged Kane to a match right now. Kane walked to ringside, but stopped short and smiled. Kane said he wouldn’t be manipulated that easily by Edge. Kane said for six weeks they’ve been playing this little game according to Edge’s rules. Kane said he will get his championship back, but he’ll do it on his terms, and when he’s ready.

SQUASH MATCH
Drew McIntyre defeated Kaval: Drew attacked Kaval as soon as he got in the ring and quickly destroyed him with the Future Shock DDT.

TAG TEAM MATCH
Rey Mysterio & Kofi Kingston defeated Alberto Del Rio & Jack Swagger:

BACKSTAGE SEGMENT
Drew McIntyre & Kelly Kelly: Drew said he and Kelly have a lot in common, but his intensity picks up when he’s in the ring. Drew said there was one thing that was for sure, and that is that he would never hurt her.

BACKSTAGE SEGMENT
Vickie Guerrero & Dolph Ziggler: Vickie said if Dolph loved her he would defend her honor and destroy John Cena. Vickie then forced Dolph to help her stretch.

HANDICAP MATCH
John Cena defeated Dolph Ziggler & Vickie Guerrero: Vickie stood on the apron screaming orders at Dolph Ziggler to destroy John Cena. Of course when Dolph finally had Cena down, Vickie tagged herself in to streal the spotlight. Vickie did the ‘you can’t see me” and then bounced off the ropes, but missed an embarrassing splash! Vickie tagged Dolph back in and Cena regained the advantage. Cena went for an Attitude Adjustment, but Dolph squirmed out and connected with the Zig-Zag! Cena miraculously kicked out (because he is Superman). Dolph set up for a second Zig-Zag but Cena reversed it into an STF. Vickie got in there and pulled Cena off, screaming “that’s my boyfriend!” Cena kissed Vickie on the lips and pushed her away. Cena hit Dolph with the Attitude Adjustment for the 1-2-3 to win the match! Vickie was livid and tried to slap Cena, but he caught her and lifted her up on his shoulders. C.M. Punk showed up from behind and assaulted Cena with a steel chair! Punk walked away quietly..
