Storm 2 (8) Vs TX-108Edit
TX-108 was apparently lacking any real speed which allowed Storm 2 to take advantage of this greatly. Storm 2 shoved TX-108 around the arena and into a walls a lot of times, TX-108 slowly hit the pit release button to activate the pit and continued getting shoved around by the Robot Wars World Champion. Eventually, Storm 2 rode up TX-108s wedge at one point, but TX-108 didn't bring its jaw down and was unable to push. After getting off TX-108s front, Storm 2 continued to shove the opposition around the arena until TX-108 ended up down the pit.
Winner: Storm 2
Leveller 2 Vs ToxicEdit
TX-108 Vs ToxicEdit
Toxic drove up TX-108s wedge but immediatly got off before narrowly missing the pit, Toxic for some reason couldn't maneuvere itself away and was chased around the arena by TX-108. Eventually, TX-108 pinned Toxic in the corner and brought its claw down on the robot from Norfolk, but it slipped off. TX-108 tried to grab Toxic again and this time had it held, TX-108 tried to drag it, but couldn't get enough traction, so let it go and carried on. Eventually the fight stopped, but TX-108 was given the win as it was the more aggressive of the two.
Leveller 2 Vs Storm 2 (8)Edit
Storm 2 (8) Vs ToxicEdit
Toxic struggled a lot to get its weapon underneath Storm 2 as the latter was too fast and kept under it shoving it around the arena a lot. Storm 2 chased Toxic around the arena and got under lifting it up trying to piggy-back it, but dropped it. So Storm 2 tried to clamp Toxic underneath its lifter, but it got away quick, so Storm 2 lifted Toxic up and maneuvered it into the arena wall were it was stuck and struggled to get down again and was beaten.
Winner: Storm 2
