At Royal Rumble Christian will defend his ECW Title against the winner of the ECW Homecoming Finale, Ezekiel Jackson. Before that happens however, Captain Charisma had to face Big Zeke's associate, William Regal, on "WWE Superstars." As usual, The British Brawler was accompanied by The Guyanese Goliath, who attempted to become involved in the match-up. Luckily for Christian, however, the ring official caught Jackson and ejected him from ringside. With the match strictly one-on-one, the ECW Champion pinned Regal for the win, sending a clear message to his Royal Rumble opponent.

Jimmy Wang Yang and his partner Slam Master J, two Superstars with two very different very unorthodox styles, make for a strange looking tag team, and on "WWE Superstars," they faced off against fellow SmackDown ring warriors, Mike Knox & Charlie Haas. Though their opponents boasted both a powerhouse in the form of Big Mike Knox and a technical expert in Haas, Yang & J persevered, with the self-proclaimed "Asian redneck" picking up the win.

With his win over Carlito, Masters continued to impress both the WWE Universe and the lovely Eve.
