– After Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view went off the air, John Cena apologized to the fans for losing the Ladder Match and asked everyone to get home safe.
– Also at TLC, WWE went with the decision to turn Alberto Del Rio babyface. 3MB were picking on the Spanish announce team for not speaking English, which prompted Ricardo Rodriguez to come out. 3MB proceeded to bully Rodriguez until Del Rio came out and made the save. This set up a six man tag team match for later in the evening, with 3MB facing The Miz, Del Rio and their mystery partner, legendary jobber The Brooklyn Brawler.
