The show kicks off with ECW General Manager Tiffany speaking to the ECW Roster as the GM states that ECW coming to an end is a “great thing” because it will allow the ECW Superstars to become “free agents” and sign with any brand they want, as well as being a part of the “next evolution” of the WWE! Tiffany then says that it has been an “absolute honor and privilege” to serve as their General Manager before telling the Superstars to “seize the day and have fun” over the next two weeks! The GM then puts on her Mardi Gras beads and grabs a drink as she prepares to “have fun” before ECW ends!
The opening match of the night saw the mentor and protégé team of Goldust & Yoshi Tatsu take on Trent Barreta & Caylen Croft with the winners facing United States Champion The Miz & Big Show on the final episode of ECW next week for the Unified WWE Tag Team Titles! In a hard-fought bout, it was Yoshi Tatsu blasting a bloody Caylen Croft with his signature Buzzsaw Kick en route to winning the match for himself and Goldust to become the #1 Contenders for the Unified WWE Tag Team Titles! On the final episode of ECW next week, will Goldust & Yoshi Tatsu unseat The Miz & Big Show as the Unified WWE Tag Team Champions?
With William Regal at ringside, Ezekiel Jackson was in action on ECW as he squared off with Baton Rouge native, Perry Wallace. With a smile on his face, “Big Zeke” soundly defeated the preliminary competitor. After the match, William Regal states that him getting ejected from ringside at the Royal Rumble was a “travesty” and tells General Manager Tiffany to grant Ezekiel Jackson an ECW Title match against Christian next week on the final episode of ECW! “Big Zeke” then proclaims that he will win the ECW Title next week and that it will “only be the beginning of the rise of his dominance”! Will Ezekiel Jackson be crowned the final ECW Champion next week or will Christian remain champion amidst the end of ECW?
Backstage, ECW Champion Christian grants Ezekiel Jackson his rematch for the ECW Championship, but Christian deems that, with next week’s ECW being the final ECW, the match should be contested under Extreme Rules! Can Christian carry the ECW Title to the end of ECW next week or will Ezekiel Jackson be crowned the ECW Champion?
It was then time for the main event of the evening as “The Gold Standard” Shelton Benjamin went one-on-one with Vance Archer in a No Disqualification Match. At the end of a grueling battle, it was Benjamin hitting Pay Dirt on Archer en route to picking up the victory over his rival in what could be the last time these two Superstars get an opportunity to face each other.
