Mark Henry was dressed as a virtuous Saint Nicholas and battled his way to victory over Damien Sandow, who played the role of a nefarious Kris Kringle, when the red brand went festive in Texas.
The World's Strongest Man shoved his opponent's head into a toilet bowl and then doused him with the contents of a fire extinguisher, before pinning the Duke of Decency with a World's Strongest Slam.
The Christmas mood was scattered all throughout Raw, with the team of Total Divas overcoming a party of True Divas - and Vickie Guerrero - in a Jingle Belles match, The Authority wishing everyone a merry Yuletide, and Kane dishing out candy canes.
Elsewhere, a Christmas Carol Sing-Off featuring 3MB's Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal, as well as The Great Khali, R-Truth, Xavier Woods and Santino Marella ended, as you can imagine, in fisticuffs, while Fandango defeated Dolph Ziggler in a Present on a Pole encounter to become the number-one contender to Big E Langston's Intercontinental Championship.
Langston, John Cena and CM Punk were swarmed by The Shield in the evening's main event, earning themselves a disqualification triumph after Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns became too heavy handed.
But the fan favourites battered their foes post-match, with a monstrous clothesline from Langston, Cena's Attitude Adjustment, and a Go to Sleep delivered by Punk doing the damage.
Plus, Sin Cara, Los Matadores and Ryback recorded victories over Curtis Axel, The Real Americans and Kofi Kingston respectively, while The Usos beat the Prime Time Players, before all four grapplers did the "Million Dollar" boogie.
But there was a pre-Christmas loss for the trio of WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes and Goldust, and Daniel Bryan, with the Superstars conquered by Bray Wyatt and his muscular mignons, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.
