We start off this week’s show with a look back at what happened on Raw with Roman Reigns pushing the feeble, geriatric Vince McMahon to the mat and Vince’s subsequent arrest by the New York Police despite the security not being there in a capacity to arrest anyone. We then see the announcement that Roman Reigns defends the WWE Title against Sheamus next week on Raw and Vince McMahon is the referee.

We are in Washington, D.C. and your announcers are Jerry Lawler, Rich Brennan, and Booker T.

The New Day make their way to the ring and they have party hats and noise makers.

They mock Sin Cara’s shoulder injury.

Xavier says that New Year’s is their favorite time of year. Every day is a new day, but New Year’s Day is a special new day.

Big E says that New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection, celebration, and resolution. Big E says their first resolution is . . . NOBODY. Xavier says that it would probably be nothing, but nobody is their thing.

Xavier says their resolution is nothing because they are perfect. Look at them. They are your WWE World Tag Team Champions. Xavier says it is not them who need a resolution or need to change. It is you, the WWE Universe who needs to change.

Kofi says in 2015, they were greatness personified from the tip of their unicorn horns down to the bottom of their winged feet. Somehow, some way, they did not win the Slammy for Tag Team of the Year. In 2016, nothing is going to change unless you, the WWE Universe can learn to appreciate greatness. Y’all gonna learn today.

Big E says in effort to avoid a catastrophe like the Slammys, they have compiled a list of resolutions for all of you people, that’s right, you people.

Resolution number one . . . Each and every single member of the WWE Universe will be required to wear glasses and hearing aids, children included. You need to see all of this greatness and you need to hear all of this great great greatness.

Resolution number two . . . The WWE Universe will be required to keep a New Day Journal. They give you a smorgasbord of greatness each and every night. In order to not forget it, you are going to need to write it down. That is assuming you know how to write.

Resolution number three . . . Each morning that you wake up and arise, you should have a spring in your booty and a song in your heart. That song is . . . NEW DAY ROCKS.

The Lucha Dragons’ music plays and they make their way out to the ring.

Kalisto tells the New Day that the WWE Universe knows what they are doing. You are a cute tag team. You deserve each other. The Slammys are for the people.

Sin Cara wants them to show everyone what they can do. They challenge the New Day to a match right here and right now.

The New Day laugh and Xavier reminds Sin Cara that he is not hurt, he is injured because of what Big E did on Monday night. Is this going to be a one on three handicap match.

Kalisto says they are not alone. They have friends of their own. Since it is New Year’s Eve, let’s get this party started.
