By Richard Trionfo on 2018-12-24 23:00:00

We are in Sacramento, California and your announcers are Michael Cole, Renee Young, and Corey Graves.

Elias is in the ring and he welcomes us and strums his guitar and he wants to know who wants to Walk with Elias.  He says it is fitting that he is opening the Christmas Eve edition of Raw because at this time of year there are three truths.   Peace on Earth.  Goodwill to all Men.  WWE stands for Walk With Elias.  It truly is better to give than receive.  Soon, he will give everyone a gift that everyone has wanted and that is beat Bobby Lashley in a street fight.  Elias says he has an original Christmas song for all of you.  He says that this will be a classic for years to come.

Children can be so annoying.  Especially this time of year.  But nothing is more annoying than Lio Rush.  Especially when he is pointing at Lashley's rear.  Under the mistletoe.  Beautiful women Elias will be kissing.  My Christmas wish is that Bobby Lashley goes missing.  Christmas with Elias.  Blessings to all of you.  When times get tough, ask yourself, what will Elias do.  I hope the new year will bring you good luck.  Remember that if it does not happen, you could be Bobby Lashley and Bobby Lashley sucks.
