- As noted, WWE Main Event on Ion will be pre-empted on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. The show will return on Wednesday, January 8th. Because of that, it was believed that the January 8th episode wouldn’t be taped until the January 7th WWE TV tapings from Philadelphia but WWE went ahead and taped the episode last night in Corpus Christi, Texas. The following matches were taped:
* Jack Swagger vs. Goldust
* Kofi Kingston vs. Fandango
- The dark match before last night’s tapings in Corpus Christi saw Los Matadores defeat El Locals, which was likely Tyson Kidd and Ricardo Rodriguez under their masks.
