It’s time for Wardlow to get his 10 lashings from the belt. MJF comes out first with Sean Spears. This is going to be hard to watch. MJF makes fun on Texas. The crowd is really letting MJF have it. He’s not phased. Here comes Wardlow with no music and handcuffed. If he lays a finger on MJF,  there will be no match at Double or Nothing. MJF spits his gum in Wardlows face when he gets in the ring. Wardlow not phased by these whips. MJF is mad! Seven lashes in and no reaction from Wardlow. Sean Spears even tries…Nothing!
