Pre-Raw Commercial

Ho Ho Hogan tonight, and Hot Rod is here with Piper's Pit!

Raw Starts

Announce Segment

Cole sets up the show with trees and gifts on stage with real fake snow falling!

In Ring Segment

Hogan's music and out comes HoHoHogan in full Santa gear and yellow shades. He seems to be having troubles keep his pants up. On announce King is wearing a shirt that's ugly sweater, shirt and tie in one. (It's horrific!)

HoHoHogan – Ho Ho Ho, brother. HoHoHogan is here to spread cheer over Monday Night Raw, brother!

"Hogan!" chants.

HoHoHogan – Hold on, it's not like that, it's HoHoHogan!

"HoHoHogan!" chants.

HoHoHogan – Ho Ho Ho! Tonight I'm giving presents to the WWE Superstars and 'Universe'. Tonight you're going to get to see the big, nasty, stinky, wart-infested big giant, Big Show go one on one against the bad man Roman Reigns. Believe that brother! And you're also going to see that kooky Bray Wyatt take on Lunatic Fringe, Dean Ambrose in a Miracle On 34th Street Fight, brother. What ya gonna do when HoHoHogan...

Cena's music cuts him off. Out comes the other yellow and red. He shows off his towel on stage, then rushes the ring. HoHoHogan points to Cena. Cena is all smiles listening to the fans.

Cena – It's like we have some from both the naughty and the nice list, I like that! It makes for an exciting evening. One man we do have is HoHoHogan Claus, brother! Big week for the North Pole. Santa's a little busy, but if there's one man we can get a hold of, that is as iconic as Santa Claus, it's HoHoHogan, brother!

"HoHoHogan!" chants.

Cena – I've done my best to be good this year, and quite frankly, all I want is a Frozen Sing Along Play Set. (singing) Let it go! Let it go! (talking) That was, until this happened.

Video of Brock Lesnar in the cage, hitting the F5 on Cena, then Heyman getting in with Rollins, and shaking his hand. On Smackdown we learned that Rollins had put the whole thing together. Then a curb stomp on Cena. "We want Lesnar!" chants.

Cena – I think the WWE 'Universe' and I agree, I want to kick his teeth down his throat. (pop & heat) After something like that, normal people would rush down and reverse that decision, wasn't fair that Brock came in the cage, gave me three German suplexes and an F5, and my career and health were in jeopardy when Seth Rollins curb stomped me to the canvas. But those are the people who get coal in their stockings. I'm not here to do that. Last week I lost to Rollins, fair and square. After that I changed my Christmas list. All I want is a match, tonight against Rollins. And I promise you I'll be ready for Seth Rollins, J&J Security, Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar, a partridge in a pear tree, what do you say, HoHoHogan?

Rollins' music cuts them off. J&J Security in tow. Rollins hands his case to Noble. They stay well away from Cena and HoHoHogan by working from the stage.

Rollins – I can't believe what I'm hearing out here John. This is absolutely ridiculous! I mean, hey, I did curb stomp his head to the mat, maybe that's why he can't see what's wrong with this picture. Let me spell it out for your John. First of all, you're out here running your mouth again, and no one wants to hear your stupid voice! Look I didn't come out to disrespect you, or the man with you. Absolute legends. In your eras, you took this company to heights it's never seen before. But as you like to say, John, your time is up, and my time is now. I am the future of the WWE. I'm the new standard bearer of the ring you stand in. This is my business, and if you want to last one more day in the Seth Rollins, that's something you're going to have to accept.

"You sold out!" chants.

Rollins – You know what, that's not even why I came out, that's just icing on the cake. The real indictment on this entire company, the fact that HoHoHogan is running Raw tonight when it should be The Authority! Screw that guy, he's an imposter, a farce!

"HoHoHogan!" chants.

Rollins – I don't want to be a Grinch, but Trip and Steph deserve to be here. They deserve to be here. (heat) That's not the holiday spirit. They deserve to be here, smiling, happy, all they have accomplished in 2014 and they are sitting at home sad and depressed as they watch people like Hogan running the show and company down the toilet! That all started at Survivor Series, John, when you and your stupid little team couldn't get the job done and had to get help in the most unlikely of places. From the vigilante, Sting. So regarding last week, I consider you lucky that I let you get up and walk out of that ring on your own two feet. Santa, if you don't grant me my Christmas present, you might not be so lucky! (heat) The Christmas present I want, and everyone in the WWE 'Universe' wants, is for you to force Cena to do the right thing, bring The Authority back!

Cena – Would you just shut up? Shut up! Shut up! You're putting these people to sleep! Shut up! This year you turned your back on your friends, you've lied, you've cheated, you've stole, you mastered the art of becoming a complete scumbag, you got the gall to run your mouth about Hulk Hogan. Usually that puts you on the naughty list, but if you come to the ring, I'll give you a pair of neon green sneakers right up your ass! (pop) I'm gonna hit you so hard, you be spitting neon green for a week! I'll cut to the chase, come down to the ring, or scurry away like the coward you are, I'm not bringing The Authority back! (pop)

HoHoHogan – Ho Ho Hold on a minute, brother. Cena is the only one who could bring The Authority back, and he's not going to do that, I guess I have to go with an alternative. That is Seth Rollins is gonna face John Cena, and that's the first match on Raw, so Ho Ho Ho!

Cena strips and tosses his gear to the fans. HoHoHogan puts his Santa hat on Cena.

HoHoHogan – What ya gonna do when Hulk Hogan, the WWE 'Universe' and all of Christmas cheer run wild on you, brother?

They both pose going to commercial.

Do you feel safe? ("What?") Hahaha! I hate to be the one to break it. ("What?") But your safety is an illusion. ("What?") It's a facade to shield you from the truth. ("What?") The truth is, if you look out of your window, there is another world out there. ("What?") In this world there is no Santa Claus. ("What?") There are no sugar plumbs. ("What?") In this world, there is the real world. ("What?") And there is only suffering. ("What?") And evil. ("What?") And pain. ("What?") And sorrow! ("What?") This is my world. ("What?") This is the world that I thrive in. In this world, I, Bray Wyatt, am King! ("What?") I have taken Dean Ambrose to my world once before, and before your very eyes, I'm gonna do it once more! Hahaha! But that's not all, you too can feel this joyous moment along side me! ("What?") All you have to do is look to the sky, and follow the buzzards! Hahaha!
