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.
We started by creating 8 matches for our card. Last week, the first changes were made. This past Tuesday night on Wrestling Mayhem Show 556 we got to see how much more damage – I mean, improvement – our players could bring to the card.
They had the usual three 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.
Let’s see how they did…
MAYHEM MANIA 2017: ROUND 2
MOVE 1 (@WifeOfTheShow)
SWAP SHINSUKE NAKAMURA FOR BOBBY ROODE
MOVE 2 (@BobbyfJTown)
SWAP TYLER BATE & TRENT SEVEN FOR THE REVIVAL
MOVE 3 (@MutilatorLarry)
KILL RYBACK VS. KURT ANGLE AND CREATE BRAUN STROWMAN VS. JAMES ELLSWORTH
MOVE 4 (@RobBrownPA78)
SWAP SIMON GOTCH FOR PETE DUNNE

With these new changes now on the card, let’s see how Mayhem Mania 2017 looks. First, here are the three matches that survived Round 2 without being altered.
