Mayhem Mania 2019: Patreon In The Bank!

This. is. Mayhem Mania!

Not quite a game. Not really a contest. More like a competitive thought experiment. The object is to create the best WrestleMania card possible – NOT necessarily to predict what WWE will do.

This is not fantasy booking. It’s more like reality booking. Any match created must have at least a chance of happening in this year’s WrestleMania. That means all wrestlers come in their current physical, emotional and contractual state. Anyone selected for a match must have a reasonable chance of being hired by WWE to appear on the real-life WrestleMania card. 

Simply put, you’re Vince McMahon with infinite cash and no self-control.

Wrestling Mayhem Show 652: Babyface Batista

This week’s episode brought to you by Indy Wrestling USSlice on BroadwayOccupy Pro Wrestling, and Professor Buzzkill!

Marcus Mann joins the mayhem this week, which means it’s likely we’ll be talking very little wrestling and a bunch of John Cena.  Thankfully we have Larry, Matt, Rizz, Mad Mike, and Sorg to keep the show rolling as we discuss:

  • We have Marcus Mann on the show – the guy who hasn’t watched wrestling since September?
  • Welcome to the Young Justice episode?
  • Marcus Mann is sharing some thoughts on Brock Lesnar and Brock-being-Brock.
  • Anytime Marcus Mann watches a wrestling match, he has some psychology assessments thanks to Shirley Doe.
  • Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar are there for particular reasons in WWE. They are in a category of their own.
  • Liking our discussion about intergender wrestling? Join us for our panel.
  • Randy Orton walks a line all the time.
  • This is the time in the show when Marcus Mann tells us how amazing John Cena is.
  • Marcus Mann is not a fan of skinny Cena.
  • With Patreon in the Bank looming, we’re looking to see if Marcus Mann can book a MayhemMania match WITHOUT John Cena (if someone uses an eliminator).
  • It’s MayhemMania time. We can’t wait to see what our crew books this week!
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Any match that survives 3 consecutive weeks without being altered in any way will graduate to our SUPERCARD, opening up a new slot for new match ideas.

Prior to the start of Round 2, a bounty of ELIMINATORS were awarded based on the results of our Royal Rumble Challenge. ELIMINATORS allow a player to eliminate any single person from being used at all during this year’s Mayhem Mania. An ELIMINATOR can be used at any time once it’s been earned. Here’s the list of who’s been eliminated thus far.

  • Ric Flair
  • Jeff Jarrett
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Drake Maverick

Next week, five more players will join us to make more changes to our existing card. Which matches do you want to see changed? Which ones are destined for the SUPERCARD? Share your feedback and thanks for supporting Mayhem Mania.

Wrestling Mayhem Show 650: The Return Of MayhemMania

This week’s episode brought to you by Indy Wrestling USSlice on BroadwayOccupy Pro Wrestling, and IndyWrestling Network!

It’s that magical time of year when we put ourselves in Vince McMahon’s shoes for MayhemMania.  We’ve got Mad Mike, Larry, Farnsworth, Sorg, and Mainstream Matt in studio to talk about:

  • We’re preparing for NXT to see some roster changes due to some call-ups.
  • 205 Live has a new broadcast member in Aiden English.
  • We are headed into the royalest of rumbles with men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches.
  • We’re running down all of the places where you can find John Cena (or his voice). He’s everywhere!
  • We are relying on Sasha Banks to save what could otherwise be a meh match with Ronda Rousey to make it amazing.
  • Ronda Rousey should be in NXT learning the ropes. She’s doing okay where she is – but she’d be better if she were going through and learning the ropes.
  • We’re blaming Smashmouth for so many things tonight.
  • We’re talking some Hardcore Holly and Brock Lesnar.
  • Are we comparing Finn Balor to Hardcore Holly? Maybe.
  • We’re running through our dark horse options for the Royal Rumble.
  • It’s MayhemMania season – which means we’re booking our dream matches.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?
