WWE will be returning to Madison Square Garden in New York City on December 27 just a month removed from their recent visit during the Survivor Series pay-per-view. So far, six matches have been announced for the house show. Main eventing the show will be a Steel Cage Fatal Four Way Match featuring CM Punk, John Cena, The Miz, and Alberto Del Rio.
A 14-man battle royal has also been confirmed involving much lower card stars, including Zack Ryder, Evan Bourne, Kofi Kingston, Alex Riley, JTG, Epico, Mason Ryan, David Otunga, Primo, Brodus Clay, Curt Hawkins, Michael McGillicutty, and Santino Marella. The winner of that match will then go on and challenge Dolph Ziggler for the U.S. Championship.
Also announced is a tag team match featuring the WWE Tag Team Team Champions Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne against Epico and Primo. This will be the second match of the night for all three, including the battle royal.
Jerry “The King” Lawler will be returning to the ring to face Michael McGillicutty and a two-days-removed-from-Christmas “Santa’s Helper Match” will feature Beth Phoenix and Eve Torres competing with Kelly Kelly as the special guest referee.
Both R-Truth and the Bella Twins are also advertised for the event.
