Magnus says he is afraid of him and he knows that Joe has been champion before. But how many times has Joe been the top guy and blown it. He says that he can’t control the rage and that is a weakness. He says that at Lockdown he will still be world heavyweight champion. Joe says that everything that Magnus said was true, but when he has his opponent beat sometimes he makes the mistake of making them bleed and he gets crazy when that happens.

Joe locks in the rear naked choke and Magnus taps and that’s the show.
