Oh man, you're in for a treat. Amazing limb selling from Masters, great control segment by Mcintyre, smart structure from Mcintyre being frustrated and overwhelmed early, then a gloriously cocky and methodical bastard when in control, great teasing of the Masters comeback before a smart finishing stretch with Masters incorporating his injury into his offence, a smart callback spot to a short February Smackdown match between them and a great finish with brilliant selling that completes the entire story. Their August 2010 encounter is also very good, albeit just below. Its 8/26 and has Regal/Goldust as the opener in another strong showing.
Masters/Ziggler is excellent and surreal. All built around the Masterlock vs The Sleeper and its amazing how well Masters bumps and times everything. Between the pair of them they make the battle to lock on their submission the decisive issue in who wins the match and its such smart work and credit to both that the fans are into it considering how basic and simple it is.
Honestly Masters' run was rivalling Christian's 2009 in terms of consistently great week to week performances and matches. Doesn't have the coup de grace that is Christian/Swagger 2/24/09, but he was putting in wonderful performances every week, got himself very over considering he was a glorified curtain jerker and was sadly saddled by his past reputation and violating two wellness tests meaning they never trusted him enough to put him on TV even in a small midcard push.

can't recall for certain. Think it varies on a match to match basis. Guess the only way he'd drop it is if his knees began to play up and it proved an unwanted hassle.
