it should only be one of the taped shows on Christmas Eve or New Years Eve (if they don't do best of special), not like I will be around or anything, but its pointless to waste time on it, the day after TLC, in which you can close out everything & start Rumble season.
17th is Raw after TLC which will be live
24th should be taped Raw(slammys)
31st should be taped Raw(best of show)
January 7th will be kick off new year show and preparing for rumble(3 raws then to prepare for rumble)
Rock won't appear until 2013 anyways, so no real point in having any rumble hype before then(unless they have a CM Punk promo at Slammys calling out The Rock)
