Earlier in the night, Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods were really trying to get into the Christmas spirit by handing out pancakes and New Day shirts, but they were interrupted by Rusev & Aiden English, dressed as Santa Claus and a snowman, respectively.
Rusev, or Rusev Claus, declared that the only shirt anyone wanted for Christmas wasn’t The New Day’s, but Rusev Day’s. Rusev then doubled down on the insults by stomping on one of The New Day’s pancakes. This, naturally, led to a tag team match against Kingston and Woods.
With the spirit of Saint Nick and fallen flapjacks at their backs, The New Day weathered the best from The Bulgarian Brute and The Picasso of Pain (including an attempted attack that included pie), putting the duo away with a dazzling top-rope elbow drop from Woods onto the now pie-faced English for the win.
What a crummy way to celebrate Rusev Day.
