Robot History Edit
Dark Shredder was scheduled to fight Weed Whacker first, but Team Circuit Breaker was disqualified due to safety and security violations. Because of this, Dark Shredder won by default and advanced to the next preliminary round, where it faced Minnesota Mangler.
When the match started, Dark Shredder ran across the BattleBox before Minnesota Mangler started spinning. Dark Shredder got a hit on Minnesota Mangler as it attempted to run away. Eventually, Minnesota Mangler went to the left and Dark Shredder went to the right. After this, Minnesota Mangler started spinning again. Minnesota Mangler managed to catch the side of one of the drum holes and blew out Dark Shredder's side bearing. Since the drum was electrified, the 175 Amp fuse blew and the drum stopped moving. The broken bearing case went between the wheel and the frame and prevented Dark Shredder from moving one side of the bot. After this, Dark Shredder was being counted out and Minnesota Mangler won by KO. This meant that Dark Shredder was eliminated from the tournament.
