Intro video and pyros. CM Punk's music hits, and he comes down to the ring with The Hardys to massive boos. "Oh you know you love to celebrate your Christmas with somebody who keeps themselves alive by not drinking and driving on the morning of Christmas and hitting a tree." The crowd boos, "And tonight I was given a so-called Christmas gift by the former ECW scum, which was full of filth... cigarettes, alcohol, and sick perverted freaks! But this is Smackdown, not ECW, Mr. Heyman... and you need to treat your World Champion with respect." He hands the mic to Jeff, "The only reason me and my brother didn't come over to ECW, and kept our extreme styles here in the WWE, is because of those pathetic excuses of wrestlers were giving themselves cancer and liver infesting problems. However, over the years I did turn to that. But this man... your world champion, got me through that. And last week my brother Matt finally came to his senses and sided with me... but none of you understand, probably because you are so busy ruining your lives!" Out comes Paul Heyman to cheers, "You both really need to shut your mouths. I had a feeling you would come out here and waste the time of these people, so I decided I was going to put you both in your place tonight. Well CM Punk has to run the gauntlet... as for you Matt, you will be taking on The Undertaker!" He walks backstage as Punk, Jeff, and Matt look furious at the decision. The lights go out. A gong is heard, and the lights come back. They are freaked out, and get out of the ring.
