WINNER: Tyler Reks in 6:00. Good showcase for Tyler Reks. He has a good look and rarely botches in the ring. Once he throws in a more memorable fighting style and character he can go far in the E.
They hype the main event of Daniel Bryan/Mark Henry vs. Ted Dibiase/Tyson Kidd
MASTERPIECE" CHRIS MASTERS vs. CURT HAWKINS
Masters starts with early offense, but Curt is quick to turn things aorund. We are reminded of Masters injured shoulder. Curt Hawkins gains the advantage by attacking the injured shoulder. Hawkins is making short work of Christ Masters, stopping him at every turn. After a two count, Hawkins applied a headlock, Masters uses his strength to break free and hit a Samoan drop. Masters takes out Curt with a huge power bomb, though only gaining the 2-count. Masters locks in "Master-Lock" forcing Curt to submit.
WINNER: Chris Masters in 4:00. Very average match. Hawkins does nothing for me, Chris Masters deserves to wrestle people he can put on a lengthy, creative match with.
