Whirlwind vs root canal

WhirlWind slams into Root Canal.

WhirlWind's first opponent was Root Canal. WhirlWind spun around early on in the match and Root Canal got hit by its arm, and the hit knocked out one of the omni-directional beads on Root Canal. The next hit by WhirlWind crippled Root Canal as it knocked the wheel guard in on one side. Root Canal could still move but was unable to drive well and when the fight ended WhirlWind was given the decision, 27-18, advancing it to meet Wee Willy Wedgy.
