Mick Foley comes out dressed as Santa Claus and says he is a bit of a Christmas fanatic, and says there is no better way to kick off the season than with a live special in Charlotte. He says they should see what is in his bag of goodies and mentions the World Championship match between Mark Henry and Daniel Bryan and reminds the fans it's in a steel cage. Foley also says there will be a Miracle on 34th Street match and and over the top rope battle royal, where the winner will get their wish granted by him. He also says he promised Michael Cole would not be on the show, but he will be because of legal actions although Foley never said how we would be dressed up.
Cole comes out wearing a reindeer suit and yells at Foley as he joins Josh Mathews (who is dressed as an elf), then Booker T comes out dressed like Santa and gets in the ring. Foley says he didn't want to leave anyone out and says he wants to include the Jewish fans, so he asks Booker to spin like a dreidle and do a spinaroonie. Booker says all of the holiday spirit is here and he can dig that, then Cody Rhodes comes out to interrupt them. He says he would've allowed this to continue in the past, but he is seeing things a little more clearly so what he sees is a lowly announcer making him look like a fool.
Booker says he doesn't have a problem with him and he doesn't want to fight, but he says he has no problem handling himself in the ring. Cody cuts him off and he does have a problem with him because he will never hold a championship ever again, then Foley cuts him off and says he is disrespecting his friend. He calls Booker a legend and says if he wants it, Christmas will come early this year and Cody will face Booker T tonight! Cody says he likes it and Booker says he is cool with it and Foley leaves as he announces the Divas match coming up next.
