Speak freely but don't be stupid about it or you'll find yourself on the last train to Clarksville, ya dumbass.

Hypershock vs Bite Force should be good. Bite Force is one of my favorites but Hypershock's lifting arms can press to the ground and get under Bite Force's wedgelets so he could probably bring his weapon into play easier. Will be tough to see cause Hypershock has had reliability issues in the past.

Overhaul vs Sawblaze could actually go in Sawblazes favor, the way he has the wedges set up could make it easy to get around Overhaul's crap. It'll definitely be close.

Whiplash vs. Hypothermia will probably just be a pushing contest. Probably Whiplash's favor.

The rumble that'll make your nan sore. I don't really know any of these robots except Double Jeopardy which shoots a giant piece of steel like a gun. It only has one shot so it'll probably do nothing and die.

War Hawk vs. Axe Backwards: this will probably be the coolest match of the night.

I entered to win a piece of Battle Royale With Cheese.... but I kinda hope I don't win this one.

I mean, it's a thrill to win a piece of any robot, sure... but I dunno about a bot that The Aristocrats could beat.
