JB is backstage with Mr. Anderson. Anderson makes JB repeat several times that Anderson beat Kurt Angle before saying no, that he destroyed Angle. Anderson says that he beat Abyss a month ago at Genesis, and he's going to go all the way tonight and grab the title shot, then the title at Lockdown. He says he's the guy they call Mr. Anderson... Anderson (of course interrupting JB).
