I'm not sure how this will play out on TV and not sure if Cena picked up the US Title but here's what happened.
Thanks to John Devlin of the UK Forces in Baghdad for the following:
Vince McMahon came out and talked about the troops, and their bravery for liberating Iraq.
After that serious moment, he was interrupted by Christmas music, and "Santa" came out to give the troops some presents. McMahon didn't get a present, then claimed Santa never stopped at his house when he was a kid.
McMahon then attacked "Santa" from behind, who then revealed himself to be Stone Cold Steve Austin, and then nailed McMahon with a stunner before having a few beers in the ring.
Matches taped for airing on December 25th on UPN and results:
APA defeated The Worlds Greatest Tag Team (Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas)
Rikishi defeated Rhyno
Eddie Guerrero defeated Chris Benoit
John Cena defeated Big Show
I wonder if Stone Cold's comeback will be on Smackdown?? Or if he might have some role on both show's as a nemises or replacement to Vince. The Board of Directors meeting with Foley and Austin should be very interesting!
Playing "Tell Me a Lie" during the montage made me chuckle a little. I would say it's the first time I've found any of it amusing, but after watching the first one I didn't bother with any of the subsequent chapters.
