Match times are not exact.
We get highlights from last week's show.
Bobby Roode, DJ Zema Ion and the BroMans make their way to the ring. They show footage of the BroMans regaining the TNA Tag Titles in Japan. Roode says in three days he will own 10% of TNA, and things will be done the Roode way. The only thing in his way is MVP. Austin Aries now makes his way out to the ring. Aries says not to get ahead of himself, because when he made his decision last week, he did so for what was best for him. Aries helped him beat MVP last week, and everyone knows it. He knows 10% isn't a big piece of the pie but he wants a piece. Roode says that they have to win the match, and then they can talk business. Aries says that they will talk now; they will split the 10% when they win. Robbie is upset about this, and says the BroMans will be the deciding factors. Jessie and he will want part of the pie as well. Roode says he came to them, he is the captain of the team, and he calls the shots. At Lockdown, priority #1, they have to win the match.

MVP now makes his way to the ring, along with the Wolves. MVP says he is a trusting guy, and gave a chance to Aries, but fool me once. He admits he had to do some hustling to get a fourth member of his team. The man who will join them is…
Dixie Carter now makes her way out to stop that announcement. Dixie tells MVP his decision will not matter. She doesn't even care who his fourth member is, because she spent last week in New York securing the victory for her team. This company means more than anything to her, and she will stop at nothing to keep control. MVP understands her, and says humor him and allow him to make his an announcement. His man is a former world champion, and a good friend of his. Dixie says it doesn't matter, but says if he wants to tell her, go ahead. The man that will be the fourth member of his team is Jeff Hardy. Dixie says no way and says he is under a TNA contract, and she suspended him when he walked out. MVP says Hardy will be part of his team no matter what she says. She adds over her dead body. Roode gets pissed and into MVP's face, and says it doesn't matter, in three days, he will own 10% of TNA. And they all brawl!

But he also knows you should never meet your heroes, because THEY WILL SUCKER PUNCH YOU. In three days, they meet in a cage, and he knows Angle is happy he can use the cage as a weapon, but Angle will do that because Angle is afraid of EC3's submission skills, and his LEG LOCK. He can tear his knee apart with the leg lock, and will tear his whole leg down. EC3 says he has accepted and defeated every challenge.

MAGNUS AND JOE FO FACE TO FACE
Joe makes his way to the ring for the final face off with Manus prior to Sunday's PPV. Joe says if Magnus has one shred of courage left, he will come to the ring to see what Joe has to say. Magnus arrives and says that Joe should know better than that, better than to question Magnus' courage and manhood. Magnus says they know each other better than anyone else. In this building, and in this ring, they won titles in TNA and Japan, and then Joe turned on hi. Then in the BFG Series, the spotlight was on Magnus, and then looks who wants to team with Magnus. The Main Event Mafia was a joke, and when the Mafia was gone, he became the main event and champion, and he says Joe cannot stand that. Joe is full of rage, and the rage will be Joe's undoing. Magnus has a fear of Joe, Joe is a bad man and has been champion before. But how many times has Joe had the chance to be the top man and blown it because of his rage? Magnus knows Joe cannot control the rage, which makes him vulnerable and weak. Magnus will defeat Joe and walk out as the champion. Magnus drops his mic, and Joe says that everything he said is absolutely true, accept his perception is a bit off. Joe says sometimes he has a problem, because he wants to drink the pain of his opponents and drink their blood Sometimes he blacks out and gets crazy and doesn't understand the things he does. The rules of wrestling are not conducive to his rage, but this will be Joe's rules, and which is KO or tap out, and we know Magnus knows how to tap pout. When you come into the cage, and you stare across from him, know her will drink your pain, shed your blood and you will not walk out the champion, in fact, you won't walk out at all. Magnus attacks with a head butt, and tries to beat Joe down, but Joe fires back and gets the choke and Magnus starts tapping!
