Once again, another show that I’ve had a chance to watch, but not a chance to review, so once again, here are the WWE RAW results for December 22, 2008 from our friends at Rajah.com (after the jump, of course)!
RAW this week starts with Santino and Beth out back. He says the fans have shown him nothing but disrespect the last 12 months. We laughed when he lost his IC Title and hurt his… region. He has a secret about Santa Claus. Beth cuts him off and says he doesn’t want to do this. He tells her to shut-a-her mouth.
Cena comes in and said Santino has never liked Santa Claus. Not since he asked for that big Barbie doll house with the Barbie doll Corvette.
Santino asked how he knew. Santino says he doesn’t like John Chena and wants to face him. He can pick anyone to face Glamarella. Camera swings to Goldust. Santino then says it has to be someone with ovaries. Goldust is upset by this. Santino says when he wins he will tell the secret of Santa Claus.
Kane comes out with Kelly following quite a bit behind him. Video of Kane tormenting Kelly last week then assaulting the Miz. Kane approaches the male in ring announcer and takes him mic. He says he was politely asked by Steph to apologize for the events of last Monday night. He gives her a truly sarcastic apology. But she should apologize to him for leading him on and then lying to him. Someday she’ll regret not telling him the truth. Kelly looks freaked out. HBK comes out to face Kane. He actually looks like his normal self, not the way he has lately.
HBK throws punches but then runs into a big boot. HBK is in deep now with Kane in charge. Snap mare to HBK and he drops a knee for two. Headlock to HBK in the center of the ring.

The announcers talk about how the DX commercials were taped before HBK started working for JBL. They talk about all the DX products available for Christmas. Plus the Elimination Chamber playset that upsets HBK. HHH said once it’s all said and done you have to spend time with your family, especially your inlaws. The way to get through it is to hideout and watch the History of the IC Championship. See HBK’s (slaps HHH’s chest) three title reigns. Or HHH’s (slaps HBK’s chest) five title reigns. Or you can watch the complete SummerSlam Anthology 1988-2007. HBK talks about his favorite being when he beat HHH. More slaps back and forth. Finally HHH said something about HBK having hair back then and they start brawling. They continue to fill in the commercial as they fight and beat on each other like little (brothers) boys.
Punk is talking to HBK. HHH comes up and says they need to talk. HBK’s avoided his calls and him. He asks what HBK is doing. If he had financial problems he should have gone to HHH. HBK said it would have changed things. It would have always hung over them. HHH told him not tel let pride ruin him again. HHH asks how him helping him is unacceptable but working for JBL is fine? HBK says he has to do things his way and he knows what he’s doing. HHH says he hopes HBK does and walks off. HBK says he does too.
Jillian is in the ring singing. Layla is with her. Mickie’s music. Mickie comes out in white with flames and Melina is with her in blue with flames. Melina rides Mickie’s back down the ramp and then they leap frog a bit. Melina does her normal ring entrance.

Orton grabs a mic and says he’s had many memorable moments in his career. Being the youngest Champion, winning the main event of WM. But none as satisfy as when he kicked Batista in the skull last week. He won his very first title four years ago and Batista raised him on his shoulders but then dropped him. He’s been dreaming of kicking Batista in the skull every night, the same dream all four years. Last week it happened. Christmas came early. How does it feel Dave? How does it feel to not be facing Cena? Four years ago they were in Evolution and now he’s back where he started, taking a back seat to Orton. He said Batista did it to himself and his time is over. When Batista sees him again Orton will be Champion.
Out back Dolph introduces himself to Kelly. She turns around. She turns around again to find Miz and Morrison. Miz is pissed.
