WWE open, annual Martin Luther King Jr. day video.  We are LIVE in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are the announcers.

John Cena comes to the ring.  They show him getting beaten up by the New Nexus 3 weeks ago.  Cena talks about said event, promises to win the Royal Rumble and go to WrestleMania, then calls out CM Punk.  WWE Champion The Miz and Alex Riley come out instead.  He rants about whatever for a minute, then announces that this year’s Royal Rumble will be 40 men instead of 30.  Why is it his job to announce that?  Miz advises whoever wins the Rumble to go after the other champion instead.  Cena makes some lame jokes, then talks about the times that Miz would have lost the title to Lawler and Orton if Cole and Riley hadn’t interfered.  Then he makes more lame jokes.  He says “poopy noises” on national TV.  Yes, he said that.  They banter for a while.  Cena says that the main event at Mania will be Cena vs. Orton.  I fucking hope not.  The New Nexus come out.  Punk cuts a promo on Cena, then sends Husky Harris, Michael McGillicutty, and David Otunga to the ring.  They attack Cena.  WWE Tag Team Champions Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov make the save.  Yes, I’m serious.  Punk decides to try different odds and all 4 of the New Nexus head to the ring.  Cole gets an e-mail from the iBooker.  iBooker bans Nexus from ringside during tonight’s Cena/Punk match on pain of not being in the Royal Rumble.

WWE Rewind: John Morrison vs. Sheamus from last week.

Raw Rebound.

Tony Chimel is now the ring announcer.  The main event is next!

Chris Masters vs. Tyler Reks.  They lock up aggressively.  Masters shoves Reks away.  They lock up again.  Masters tries a go behind.  Reks catches him with an elbow.  Masters fires back with chops and takes Reks down with a side headlock.  Reks rolls him over into a cradle briefly.  I love that spot.  Reks backs Masters into the corner and beats him up.  Masters gets rolling and clotheslines Reks out of the ring.  Masters throws Reks back into the ring.  Reks rolls to the other side of the apron.  Masters goes for the Master Lock, but Reks pulls his arm down into the turnbuckles.  Insta-commercials.  Reks works Masters’ arm.  Reks hits a Final Cut for 2, then goes back to working the arm.  Reks hits a body slam and a knee drop for 2.  Back to torturing the arm.  Reks rams Masters’ arm into the post.  He tries to do it again, but Masters pulls Reks into the post.  Masters beats up Reks on the outside.  Back inside, Masters hits a Samoan drop for 2.  Masters goes for the Master Lock, but can’t do it.  Reks goes for a neckbreaker, but Masters turns it into a backslide for 2.  Reks hits a clothesline for 2.  Reks drops knees and elbows, then rains down punches on Masters.  Reks goes for a powerbomb and Korpela thinks its the Burning Hammer.  Masters back body drops him, then spears the corner.  There’s a jump cut, then Reks hits the Burning Hammer for the pin (about 10 minutes shown).  Okay match.  I wonder what the deal was with the jump cut.

Pretty decent show.
