*Matt Striker cut a promo about new year’s resolutions, saying some fans hope to lose weight and pray to get a job. He said that next year, Striker is going to teach people the lesson of the teacher, Matt Striker.

*Viscera pinned Rob Conway with a big splash.

After Raw went off the air, live in Bridgeport, Shawn Michaels’ music began to play and he returned to the locker room with a very somber look on his face. There was no contined interaction between he and Vince McMahon, who had already returned to the back.

WWE then closed off their final Raw taping of 2005 with a dark match featuring WWE champion John Cena defending against Kurt Angle. Mike Cioda, who refereed Angle vs. Daivari, was the official here. In a short match, Cena went for the FU when Daivari came out and interfered for the DQ. Angle and Daivari laid out Cena and Angle beat down Cioda with chair shots, getting his revenge for the countout loss. Cena made his comeback against Daivari and Angle and hit the FU. Angle and Daivari retreated and Cena slapped hands with the fans to close the taping.
