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 (even though it kind of is). Any match created must be possible in real life. 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.
The fun began this past Tuesday on Wrestling Mayhem Show 554. 8 people were assembled. Each created one match.
There are stakes. In the coming rounds, people will be making changes to our precious Mayhem Mania card. If a match can survive 3 rounds without being tampered with in any way, it graduates to the SUPER CARD, and its creator gets a few prizes. More on that later. Right now, let’s create some matches!

The Miz & Maryse vs. Dean Ambrose & Renee Young vs. Rusev & Lana

Bray Wyatt vs Randy Orton

It all seems so simple, doesn’t it? Veterans of Mayhem Mania know that’s not the case. The real fun begins next week, when we bring in 5 people and give each of them the chance to make a single change. They have 3 options:
1. SWAP a wrestler/tag team for one already on the card, or bring for a name not currently on the card.
2. ADD an unused wrestler/tag team to an existing match.
3. KILL a match AND CREATE an entirely new match with wrestlers not curretly on the card.
What changes would you make to the current card? Which matches have to go? Which wrestlers have been most grievously overlooked? Share your comments below.
As I mentioned, this is our third year doing Mayhem Mania. If you want to see how messy this whole thing can get, just click the links below. There has been swearing. There have been hurt feelings. But it’s also a ton of fun. Let us know what you think and thanks for supporting Mayhem Mania!
