Dolph and AJ’s New Year’s Eve Toast — John Cena was not invited to the Toast, but he interrupted anyway. Cena then used the big screen to show off what AJ’s illegitimate children would look like, which had the heads of all different WWE wrestlers and legends on them.
Cena then made the big announcement that he will be in the 30-man Royal Rumble match, making him the first known entrant into the match. Cena then left and while AJ and Dolph were left in the ring, a manure-like substance fell from the rafters to ruin their toast.
