[ REVIEWED BY SHANE ST. GERMAIN ]
IN THE RING William Regal + Ezekiel Jackson + ECW Champion Christian + Kane: William Regal said it was his pleasure to introduce the next ECW champion to the ring, Ezekiel Jackson! Ezekiel entered the ring and said that Christian only has 5 days left. Ezekiel said last week they left him laying there sprawled at his feet, and that image is going to repeat itself on Sunday. Ezekiel said as Christian drifts in and out of consciousness he will hear Ezekiel getting announced as the new ECW champion. Ezekiel said the end has come. Christian came out on stage! Christian asked Ezekiel if he liked biblical quotes, and then said he does to, because after all, he is Christian! Christian said he has his own quote from the book of Ezekiel, and he copied Sam Jacksons bible quote from Pulp Fiction, changing some words with peeps and captain charisma. Ezekiel asked him if he was a comedian, and said Christian has never faced anyone like him. Christian said he hasn’t, but he is a 2 time ECW champion, and has defended it against all American Americans, ECW originals, and creepy white pale British dudes! Christian said Ezekiel might be the biggest strongest freak in the ECW, maybe even in all of WWE, but that he is looking forward to facing him one on one Sunday night. Christian said Ezekiel left out the part from last weeks beating when it was 2 on 1. Christian said he has managed to even the score for tonight, and the big red machine Kane came out! They walked down to the ring for a tag match.
TAG TEAM MATCH Ezekiel Jackson & William Regal defeated ECW champion Christian & Kane: Christian and Regal started off with some grappling and technical stuff before Regal got the tag to Jackson.

BACKSTAGE SEGMENT Shelton Benjamin + Vance Archer: Shelton Benjamin said it doesn’t matter if you’re the first guy in the Rumble, the last guy, the longest in, or the shortest in, all that matters is if you’re the last man in the ring. He started to talk more but Vance Archer attacked him! Vance said hopes and dreams are all Shelton has, because that’s reality.
