*Ricky Starks to the ring…he lost…MJF cheated…but there will be a next time…Chris Jericho (with Sammy & Garcia) out in front of the ‘tron…says he’s been watching Ricky for a long time & he will be a champion one day…but he’s not ready just yet…Jericho thinks he needs a little influence from Jericho…they offer him a spot in the Jericho Appreciation Society…Starks points out that Jericho lost to Andretti, so the “J” in JAS stands for “jobber”…Ricky offers instead to fight Jericho on Jan. 4th…Jericho has Jake Hager attack Ricky from behind…Action Andretti down for the save…clears the JAS.

(1)  The Elite def. Death Triangle…MATCH 5 of BEST OF 7 SERIES…NO DQ…Michael Nakazawa, Alex Abrahantes, & Brandon Cutler all get involved briefly, because, well, it’s a No DQ Match…a Christmas tree, a barbed wire-wrapped broom, & other hardcore plunder utilized…the Bucks hit the Meltzer Driver on Fenix, Matt covers for the win (14:06)…AFTER…Penta & Pac attack with the hammers…the Elite don’t look like the winners when it’s all said & done.

*Action Andretti backstage with Schiavone…after the “upset of the decade” he knew the JAS would take out their frustration at random…2point0 interrupt as a distraction for Chris Jericho to deliver a fireball…because he’s a frickin’ wizard!

*Bryan Danielson in the ring with Renee…he doesn’t expect the rest of Blackpool Combat Club to forgive William Regal for what he’s done, but Danielson can never turn his back on Regal…and MJF will learn that there are consequences for his actions…calls out MJF…gets Ethan Page instead, who has no intention of letting Danielson jump the line & get a shot at the title before him…Danielson suggests they fight about it right now…Page says…next week.

(2)  Hook def. Exodus Prime…redruM for the submission win (01:03)…AFTER…Stokely Hathaway appears on the ‘tron so Hook can watch as Big Bill & Lee Moriarty assault Jungle Boy…Big Bill chokeslams him into a dumpster.

(3)  Jon Moxley def. Darius Martin…Darius with an impressive showing, but in the end Moxley grinds him down with the wrist-capture face stomps and hammer & anvil elbows, then takes him over with the Death Rider for the win (08:51).

*Powerhouse Hobbs promo…he was beaten, robbed, stabbed, & shot as a child & it turned him into a monster…he intends to spill the blood of others.

(4)  Gunns def. FTR…Dax with an O’Connor Roll on Austin…Austin reverses into a Roll Up of his own & uses a hand from Colten on the outside for leverage & the win (09:33).

*Sonjay Dutt raps about Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett getting a shot at The Acclaimed.

*Rick Ross in the ring with Schiavone…Ross introduces Keith Lee, who joins him in the ring…then calls for Swerve Strickland, who keeps them waiting…then tells Lee he needs to have eyes in the back of his head…Parker Boudreaux attacks Lee while wearing a “Mogul Affiliates” shirt just like Swerve…Lee deals with Boudreaux, then heads up the ramp after Swerve, where he’s attacked by some freak with tattoos all over his face…Boudreaux & the other guy beat up Lee & lay him out on the ring steps…Swerve with a top buckle Swerve Stomp onto Lee, crushing a cinderblock into Lee’s chest.
