Dean Ambrose comes out to his music. He talks about the match at TLC. Says he has fight left in him. Challenges Bray to a bootcamp(?) match at Tribute to the Troops tomorrow night. Bray Wyatt appears on the Titantron. The only reason Dean is still breathing is that Bray is enjoying the game they are playing. He will watch it all burn down. Wyatt laughs as Dean looks on. Segment abruptly ends in that Wyatt style.

Back in the ring and it’s Jimmy and Miz, with Usos in control. Clothesline sends Miz over the top and Mizdow follows. Harper comes into the ring and takes down Uso and covers for 2.

He goes to leave – Joey get the limo – but Dolph Ziggler’s music plays. He has a mic on the stage. Ziggler notes that The Authority is out of power because of Sting – AND him. He challenges Rollins to a match for tonight. Rollins is angry but he accepts. They argue about who will win. We’ll find out later tonight!!!

Commercial Break

Recap of earlier tonight on Main Event when The Miz got Naomi a Diva’s title shot somehow.

WWE Diva’s Title
Nikki Bella (c) vs. Naomi

Both come down before the entrance, which is a nice small touch to give the title match some gravitas. Sunset flip right away by Naomi for 2. Then a cover by Nikki for 2. Some wacky divas kicks. Both are down when The Miz comes down from the back. He slams on the mat rooting her on. “Dropkick” by Naomi. Another. Cover for 2. Cross body for 2. Miz continues to root for Naomi on the floor. Nikki tosses Naomi to the floor. Miz checks on her but Jimmy Uso comes down and fights with Miz to the back. Nikki with a small package on Naomi for the pin.
Winner: Nikki

Jimmy looks upset. Naomi leaves the ring looking angry.

Commercial Break

Adam Rose vs. Kane
The Bunny is here but he has a neckbrace on and is being tended to by female Rosebuds. Basically a SQUASH.
Winner: Kane

After the match Kane gave the bunny another tombstone. Can you believe that the tombstone piledriver – a dangerous, protected move – has suddenly become a comedy finisher again?

Commercial Break

Backstage is Gold & Stardust. Goldust does a couple of old school ticks and says he hates the holidays. Stardust is back to green and he also hates the holidays. They don’t really work as heels.

Separately but also backstage, Renee Young interviews Seth Rollins who is flanked by J&J Security. He had to make John Cena vulnerable so that’s why he worked with Heyman on Raw. And he took Jericho out because he was not a suitable substitute for the Authority.

Dolph Ziggler does his entrance.
