Terrorhurtz (2) Vs Storm 2 (8)Edit
For this battle, Storm 2 had been fitted with a rubber-mounted slab of Titanium to absorb the shock of Terrorhurtzs axe blows. This proved very successful as Terrorhurtz got a lot of blows in on the 8th seed to start off with, but none seemed to do a lot of harm. Storm 2 shoved Terrorhurtz all over the arena and Terrorhurtz kept axing at the opposition but either failed to cause serious damage or missed it target due to the speed of the Storm 2. Eventually, Storm 2 pinned Terrorhurtz in the corner of the arena where it got its axe stuck in the arena wall. Terrorhurtz tried to free itself, but it was no use and was counted out.
Winner: Storm 2
Turbulence Vs Tough As Nails (5)Edit
Both robots were off as soon as activate was called, Turbulence tried to flip Tough As Nails, but attacked too early and Tough As Nails grabbed Turbulences open flipper and had a short tussle with it but the newcomer broke free.
