Ziggy tosses Star Hawk into the air

Ziggy throws Star Hawk several feet into the air.

After receiving a bye in the first round, Ziggy's first match was against Shovelhead. It lost this fight, and was now in the losers bracket where it faced Star Hawk 3.0. As soon as the match started Ziggy got underneath Star Hawk, and flipped it over. Ziggy then took Star Hawk to the arena side wall, and attempted to toss it out the arena. This however failed, and Ziggy took it to the pulverizers before flipping it back over.

Star Hawk then shoved Ziggy into the wall before driving onto Ziggy's wedge where it got flipped over again. This time however Ziggy did not flip Star Hawk back over, and it was counted down, giving Ziggy the win by knockout. This put Ziggy up against Black Knight. It won this fight, and was now in the losers bracket finals against Steel Reign. It beat Steel Reign, and advanced to the finals where it faced Shovelhead again. It lost this fight and became SuperHeavyweight runner-up of the BattleBots Rochester R3 event.
