CM Punk comes out and says he's not much for Christmas miracles, but he said he was taking some of the Shield with him, and he ended up beating them. He says it's far from over, but he thinks someone is trying to get rid of him, and he doesn't do well with authority figures. Punk says he proved it by slugging HHH last week, and he wants to settle this before he's put in another handicap match and asks HHH to come to the ring. Punk waits and says he didn't think HHH would show, but Shawn Michaels greets him instead and Punk asks what he wants. Shawn says he gets it because he's just like him, but he tells Punk to get over it because he's the one that kicked him last week, not HHH. Punk says they should talk about it, and he says he respects him a lot, which is why he's giving Shawn a pass for last week. He says Shawn had better not kick him again, or he's getting kicked back, but Shawn says it hurt him to do that last week, then introduces Punk's opponents.
