Monster's Long Beach 1999 appearance.

Monster was scheduled to fight Bad Boy in the first round, but Bad Boy wasn't finished yet and was forced to forfeit. This win put Monster in the next round where it faced Crock. It won by knockout and it was now against BioHazard.

Monster mostly drove over BioHazard and was lifted a few times before time ran out. BioHazard won by crowd vote and Monster was now in the loser's bracket, where it faced Rhino. Rhino won by KO and Monster was eliminated from the tournament.

For unknown reasons, Monster didn't participate the gigabot rumble at the end of the tournament.mons

Monster gets axed by KillerHurtz.

Monster's only match of the season was against KillerHurtz. In the match, KillerHurtz immediately got its axe into Monster, where it broke one of Monster's drive chains. While KillerHurtz was only going forward due to technical issues, Monster got stuck on the spikestrip and KillerHurtz got one more blow on top of Monster before it was counted out. This meant that Monster was eliminated from the tournament once again.

However, Monster was repaired in time for the heavyweight royal rumble at the end of the tournament. Monster immediately went at OverKill and bounced off Nightmare from its disc. Monster was then lifted by Tazbot and almost flipped it. Monster then got underneath Mauler and Kill-O-Amp started pushing both of them against the spikestrip. At that moment, Monster stopped moving and was pushed against the spikestrip.
