* Sheamus attacked Ricochet allowing Humberto to get an edge, but Ricochet eliminated him.
* Ricochet got a roll-up pin to eliminate Jinder Mahal.
* Sami Zayn came out last and he hit the Helluva Kick to knock out Ricochet. He got the pinfall and by virtue of winning the 12-man gauntlet, he will face Nakamura for the IC Title at WWE’s Day 1 pay-per-view event.

* For the main event, the ringside area was all decorated for the 6-man tag “Miracle on 34th Street Fight” match that featured Drew McIntyre and The New Day vs. Riddick Moss and The Usos. Corbin used a candy cane kendostick to attack McIntyre. Meanwhile, the Usos destroyed the stage setup by beating up Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods on it. Kofi poured a pitcher of egg nog over the head of Corbin. McIntyre also poured a pitcher over both Corbin & Moss. Drew then hit the Claymore Kick on Moss in the ring to win the match. Following the match, Drew, Kofi, & Woods threw out gifts to the fans in attendance as the show went off the air.
