Karl in the pits.

It is unknown exactly whom Karl faced in this event, although it is known that it reached the round of  16 at the very least, which denotes at least three wins, amongst those was most notably BattleBots Rochester R3 Middleweight champion Green Wave.[1] Karl eventually got sent to the loser's bracket by eventual finalist Edge in the round of 16, and it is unknown whom it faced after that, or even if it won. Regardless, it eventually lost to an unknown opponent, and was eliminated from the competition.

As of 2016 it is unknown weather or not Karl participated in the consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.
