In the main event, John Cena, Big E Langston and CM Punk defeated The Shield in a six-man tag team match by disqualification after Langston hit The Big Ending on Dean Ambrose but Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins attacked to draw the DQ. After the match, Cena, Langston and Punk cleaned house on The Shield to end the show.
Daniel Bryan teamed up with Cody Rhodes and Goldust on the show in a separate six-man tag team match and the trio fell to the Wyatt Family after Bray Wyatt pinned Rhodes following his Sister Abigail finishing maneuver. After the match, the Wyatts beat up Bryan and the lights went out.
In the built up "Good Santa" vs. "Bad Santa" match, Mark Henry (good) took on Damien Sandow (bad) and Henry got the win. Both men were dressed in Santa suits and there were presents and Christmas trees around the ringside area. During the match, they opened a present and it was a toilet.
In divas Christmas action, there was a Jingle Bells match featuring Eva Marie, Natalya, The Bella Twins, Cameron and Naomi vs. Aksana, AJ Lee, Rosa Mendes, Alicia Fox, Tamina Snuka and one other Diva, which saw Natalya defeat Aksana with the Sharpshooter.
RAW kicked off with The Authority, who handed out Christmas hats to the crowd before WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton came out and was given the night off.
In other action, Sin Cara defeated Curtis Axel while The Usos defeated Darren Young and Titus O'Neil in tag team action.
In a special "Present on a Pole" match, Fandango took on Dolph Ziggler in a match that would award the winner a No.1 contender's shot at the Intercontinental Championship on the New Year's Eve edition of RAW. Fandango ended up getting the win over Ziggler.
In a Christmas Carol competition, The Great Khali and Santino Marella won over Jinder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, Xavier Woods and R-Truth. Heath Slater was not with the rest of 3MB.
Elsewhere on the program, Ryback defeated Kofi Kingston while Los Matadores overcame Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro.
