The three machines converged in the middle of the arena, and after just a few light bashes from the other two competitors, Doodlebug suddenly broke down. Hard Cheese then caught Wharthog from the rear, and started to shove it away from the corpse of Doodlebug, just as house robot Matilda closed in to deal with Doodlebug. Wharthog turned around again, but Hard Cheese didn't give up its attacks on the experienced machine. Eventually, the shunts from Hard Cheese rendered Wharthog immobile too, and Hard Cheese was the last robot standing. Afterwards, house robot Dead Metal came out of the PPZ, and attacked Hard Cheese, making Verminator fall off the wedge of Hard Cheese, onto the arena floor. House robot Shunt then placed Verminator over the flame pit, before cease was finally called.
