Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel beat Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal.
Hornswoggle and The Great Khali beat Epico and Primo. The fans voted that whoever lost would have to sing a Christmas song.
Wade Barrett was added to the IC Title match. Kofi Kingston retained, pinning Barrett.
After the match there was a bunch of dead time, then Barrett said he wanted to fight Kofi one on one. Instead DiBiase came out and pinned Barrett. It was a weird sequence.
