Slam job5

SlamJob's Season 5.0 appearance.

SlamJob (originally spelled Slam Job) was a heavyweight robot that participated in the final three seasons of BattleBots. It was somewhat pyramid-shaped with hinged wedges all around, which meant SlamJob was very hard to get underneath. It had two different axes; the Season 3.0 axe was a tire iron, this was replaced in Season 4.0 onwards with a pneumatic spiked axe. SlamJob did decently in BattleBots, almost always winning at least one fight every year and reached the quarterfinals in Season 4.0. SlamJob is most remembered for its clash with Nightmare during its rookie season, which sent it flying through the air, pieces of it scattered everywhere.

After BattleBots ended, SlamJob competed for a long time in the heavyweight circuit as SJ, winning numerous championships and events, even defeating the Robot Wars Series 7 champions Typhoon 2. SlamJob eventually retired around the turn of the decade.

The initial hit between Nightmare and Slam Job.

When the match started, Nightmare drove SlamJob with the intention of hitting one of SlamJob's sloped fronts. Nightmare got lucky though, hitting SlamJob's weapon shaft and sending SlamJob flying upside down, into the BattleBox corner, breaking the tank that powered the tire iron weapon and preventing SlamJob from being able to self-right. Nightmare was not undamaged as its weapon motor threads were torn free and the receiver that was taped in place was jarred loose. Nightmare and SlamJob were both immobilized and the battle was over in 34 seconds. In the end, Nightmare won on a 25-20 judge's decision and SlamJob was eliminated from the tournament.

SlamJob wasn't finished, however, as it participated the heavyweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament. Before the rumble, Jim Smentowski of Team Nightmare was helping to fix SlamJob before the consolation rumble. However, they didn't check the axe after the armor was put on and the linkage bolt that powers that axe was hung on top of SlamJob. This meant that SlamJob's axe didn't work. Despite this, SlamJob almost survived the consolation rumble until the last minute after getting lifted by Little Sister. SlamJob stopped moving after its safety link popped out and the time ran out soon after. Little Sister and Kill-O-Amp won overall and SlamJob lost overall.
