Whomp's first and presumably only opponent was Yinzer. Whomp stayed in its corner and spun its weapon up as Yinzer reversed towards it spinning up its own weapon. Whomp hit Yinzer then ran away to spin up again but it was too late as Yinzer approached it and flipped it with its drum.

Whomp and Paradigm collide

Whomp's first match was against lifting robot Paradigm. Paradigm rushed towards the spinning Whomp and pushed it into the wall seriously damaging the weapon of Whomp. Paradigm tried lowering its scoop to go on another assault but unfortunately it lowered it too much and got stuck on it unable to move correctly. For the rest of the match Whomp pushed Paradigm into the wall a few times until the match ended and won by judges decision.

Sound Wave hit it again closer to the wall and Whomp managed to get up to full spinning speed and the two bots charged into each other weapon to weapon sending Whomp flying into the wall almost flipping it over and sending a few screws off the robot.
