The show kicks off with William Regal, who introduces his protégé; the #1 Contender for the ECW Title at the Royal Rumble, Ezekiel Jackson. “Big Zeke” comes out and proclaims that “five days” is all that Christian has left as ECW Champion and tells Christian that the “end” has come! Christian then comes out and vows to “lay his vengeance” upon Ezekiel Jackson! Ezekiel states that Christian has faced “no one” like him and Christian responds by saying he is a two-time ECW Champion and he has beaten them all and states that he looks forward to facing “Big Zeke” at the Royal Rumble. Christian then says that the only reason Christian was laid out last week was because it was a 2-on-1 situation and proclaims that he is evening the odds before bringing out his tag team partner, Kane!
Five days before he defends the ECW Championship against Ezekiel Jackson at the Royal Rumble, ECW Champion Christian teamed up with “The Big Red Machine” Kane to face Ezekiel Jackson and his mentor, William Regal. During the match, the monsters of the match, Kane & Ezekiel Jackson, take their fight to the outside of the ring. Meanwhile, in the ring, Christian sets William Regal up for the Killswitch, but, unknown to Christian, “Big Zeke” tags himself into the contest and hits Total Domination on Christian en route to pinning the ECW Champion! Can Ezekiel Jackson pin Christian when it matters this Sunday at the Royal Rumble and claim the ECW Title?
Backstage, Shelton Benjamin discusses the Royal Rumble Match this Sunday, but “The Gold Standard” was blind-sided by Vance Archer, who leaves Benjamin laid out before stating that “hopes and dreams” are all that Shelton has, but what he did is “reality”! How will Shelton Benjamin respond to this attack by Vance Archer?
Then it was time for the main event as the self-proclaimed “Heart And Soul Superhero of ECW” Zack Ryder teamed up with The Dudebusters, Caylen Croft & Trent Barreta, against the team of Goldust, Yoshi Tatsu, & The Hurricane in a 6-Man Tag Match. In the end, it was Yoshi Tatsu hitting his Buzzsaw Kick on Trent Barreta en route to winning the match for his team! How will Yoshi Tatsu, Zack Ryder, & The Hurricane fare in the Royal Rumble Match this Sunday night?
