Vince goes on to address Punk’s likely alliances with The Shield and Brad Maddox and says if he can’t go on 1/7 that Heyman will face Ryback in a TLC match.

* World Heavyweight Champion Big Show b. Ricardo Rodriguez due to interference by Alberto Del Rio. Del Rio, who was at ringside for the bout, was dressed in a suit.
* Wade Barrett b. Kofi Kingston to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Josh Mathews interviewed Barrett in the ring after the match and Barrett says to watch out for him in 2013.
* The Shield vs. Ryback in a handicap match never happened. The Shield attacked Ryback when he came out, Sheamus made the save. Randy Orton returned to help the babyfaces and The Shield escaped through the crowd. Orton, Ryback and Sheamus stood in the ring.
* Dolph Ziggler, in a tuxedo, and AJ Lee, in a dress, come out for the New Year’s Eve toast with Big E Langston (in his ring gear). They toast to clips of Cena getting slammed by Brock Lesnar, knocked out by Big Show and more. Ziggler un-invites Cena and tells Big E Langston to guard the ring. Cena comes out when AJ and Ziggler kiss. He admits 2012 hasn’t been a good year but talks down AJ Lee. He shows Photoshopped photos on the titantron of AJ’s illegitimate children of other WWE personalities. He rants on Ziggler and says he’ll be an entrant in the 30-man Royal Rumble match. Cena promises a WWE Championship reign in 2013 and toasts to Dolph and AJ. As that happens, a bunch of what appears to be feces, is dumped from the rafters and splashes all over the ring and AJ and Ziggler. Cena’s music plays to end the show.
