Commentated by John Cleese, Colin wrestles himself using a variety of moves including the double hand lock, the head squeeze, the Albanian head lock, working on the left leg, the flying Welshman, the half nelson, the Finnish leg lock, the forearm chop, double overhead nostril, the fall and the double overhead. Finally, there's the first fall to Colin.

Next, he uses the forearm smash, the hammer to the head, two flying Welshmen, the half-Egyptian, the half-crab, the neck pin and two forearm smashes. Colin is out and Colin is the winner.
