Juggernaut.

Juggernaut was a heavyweight robot built by Jascha Little (who would eventually go on to build The Judge) that fought at the BattleBots Long Beach 1999 competition. It was a robot constructed entirely out of wood and armed with a large hammer weapon. The chassis had a rubber stopper at the end of the hammer's arc so the frame could absorb impacts from it. Juggernaut had a decent win record, winning one battle, but losing twice.

Vlad the Impaler flips Juggernaut over within 5 seconds of the fight

Juggernaut's first match was likely against Vlad the Impaler. Here, it attempted to hammer Vlad, but it was immediately bulldozed and flipped, losing by knockout within around five seconds. This loss put Juggernaut into the losers bracket where it faced K.I.S.S. It won this fight and moved on to face Malicious Mischief. Malicious Mischief won by crowd vote and Juggernaut was eliminated.

Juggernaut wasn't finished though as it participated in the gigabot royal rumble at the end of the tournament.
