- The ECW opening airs.
- We go live to Little Rock and Justin Roberts introduces Kelly Kelly. Kelly walked out with all smiles. She got in the ring, got on the mic and reminded everyone she is an exhibitionist. She said that "Kelly's Expose" will return next week and goes to give us a preview...and then Matt Striker's music hit. Striker gets in the ring, gets on the mic and says he has had girls like Kelly in his classroom before. He insulted her and said class was about to start next when he faces her big crush CM Punk. Kelly takes a seat at ringside.
- CM Punk defeated Matt Striker. A very long match between the two, which isn't very common in ECW-land. The finish saw Kelly get in the ring and take off her top with her back to the main camera. Striker had a shocked look on his face and Punk rolled him up for the pinfall. After the match, Punk celebrated his win with the fans as Kelly clapped for him.
- Footage of Test interfering in the Bobby Lashley vs. RVD match last week for the ECW Title was shown.
- "The Alpha Male" Marquis Cor Von (aka Monty Brown) defeated Cassidy Riley. Boy, this was sure weird to see two former TNA stars now in a WWE/ECW ring. Lots of TNA chants early on from the crowd in Little Rock. The finish saw Brown, sorry Cor Von (that will take some getting used to) hit The Pounce. Tazz and Styles didn't know what to call it even though it was written on the back of his tights. Cor Von then gave Riley a russian leg sweep into an armbar and Riley tapped out. After the match, Cor Von got on the mic and said everyone is wondering why he is in ECW. He said he came to ECW to mark his territory and destroy anything in his path.
- Backstage, Bobby Lashley was shown with the ECW Title over his shoulder. Joey Styles then interviewed Lashley to discuss the Triple Threat later tonight. Lashley promised he would walk in and walk out as champion tonight.
- Elijah Burke defeated The Sandman. Not much of a match between these two. Sandman caned Terkay off the apron before the bell rang. It looked like Sandman may have suffered some sort of an injury following a DDT given to him by Burke. The finish saw Burke roll up Sandman for the quick win.
- Backstage, Rob Van Dam was shown warming up.
- A vignette with Kevin Thorn and Ariel aired. Ariel referenced the love of a red rose and the pain of a black rose. She said there would be 29 other black roses at the Royal Rumble and that Thorn would go on to main event WrestleMania. Thorn then kissed Ariel on the neck to end the segment.
- Bobby Lashley defeated Rob Van Dam & Test to retain the ECW Championship. Even though Lashley is supposed to be this big babyface champion, any type of offense he got in on the more popular Rob Van Dam fell flat with the crowd in Little Rock. One impressive spot saw RVD hit a double rolling thunder on both Lashley and Test in the ring. With both men down, RVD went up to the top rope, jumped over Lashley and connected with the Five Star Frog Splash on Test. The finish then saw Test roll out of the ring selling the Five Star and Lashley caught RVD with a big Spear. Lashley then picked up RVD and hit a big running powerslam, covered and got the pinfall. Wow, very surprising to see RVD take the clean pinfall there. Makes you wonder what that really means at the end of the day.
After the match, Test grabbed the ECW Title and started heading up the entrance way. Bobby Lashley chased after him, but Test turned around and knocked out Lashley with the title. Test yelled at Lashley on the ground, holding the ECW Title to his face saying it was hit. The show went off the air with Test celebrating over a knocked out Lashley with the ECW Title.
