Season 5.0

Bad Buzzard's first match was against Knucklehead. In the BattleBox, Knucklehead started damaging Bad Buzzard's armor while the flail was still spinning. Bad Buzzard retaliated by repeatedly ramming Knucklehead with it's spinning flail and Knucklehead eventually stopped moving. Bad Buzzard won by KO and advanced to the next round, where it faced Grunt Force.

Grunt Force never touched Bad Buzzard as it accidently got caught on the spikestrip and was counted out. Bad Buzzard won by KO and advanced to the next round, where it faced Rugger.

It was mostly a pushing match in the middle of the arena and Bad Buzzard drove over the wedge of Rugger on multiple occasions. Towards the end of the match, Rugger got under the side of Bad Buzzard and carried it to the corner of the arena. The time ran out and Rugger won on a 29-16 judge's decision and Bad Buzzard was eliminated from the tournament.
