Mayhem Mania 2017: Round 8

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. Then, we started making changes. Here’s where you can catch up on those made in Round 1Round 2Round 3Round 4Round 5Round 6 and Round 7. If a match survives 3 rounds of Mayhem Mania without being altered in any way, it GRADUATES to the SUPERCARD, creating room for new and even more fantastic match ideas. So far, we’ve graduated three matches.

That brings us to this week’s players. They had the usual three options this past Tuesday night on Wrestling Mayhem Show 562.

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.

Mayhem Mania 2017: Round 8

Move 1 (Lucha Underground Co-Executive Producer @ChrisDeJoseph)
SWAP Bobby Roode for Undertaker

Move 2 (Billy Johnson)
ADD Big Show to Samoa Joe vs. James Ellsworth vs. Braun Strowman

Move 3 (@MadMike4883)
ADD Sasha Banks & Bayley to Mickie James & Beth Phoenix vs. LayCool

Move 4 (@Sorgatron)
SWAP Undertaker for No Way Jose

Move 5 (@MUTILATORLARRY)
ADD Emma & Britt Baker to Sasha Banks & Bayley vs. Mickie James & Beth Phoenix vs. LayCool

For those of you who are wondering, Britt Baker is an independent professional wrestler out of the Pittsburgh area. She appeared on Raw last year in the role of “local competitor” against Nia Jax.

Britt is definitely a talent to watch. She’s booked for the Shimmer show in Orlando during WrestleMania weekend. If you have the chance, go check her out.

With Round 8 now in the books, let’s take a look at the 8 matches on the Mayhem Mania undercard. First, here are the 4 matches that survived the round without being altered in any way.

Because next week is Patreon In The Bank, the application of the “Alex Kahrs Rule” whenever someone’s move does not surive until the end of a round will be delayed until the round after next. Mad Mike will be invited back to make another move. The situation regarding Chris DeJoseph is more complicated. Technically, he created two matches with one move (because he actually understands how to play this game). One survived. One did not. Should the Alex Kahrs Rule apply to him in this situation? The Mayhem Mania board of directors is still assessing this situation.

As mentioned, next week is our spectacular Patreon In The Bank round! The Wrestling Mayhem Show has more Patreon supporters than ever so this will be the biggest PITB ever! All Patreon supporters are invited to play and they will get to make moves that are not available to players in other rounds. Those will include:

The BRAND NEW Graduate or UN-Graduate option. That’s right. Patreons will be able to auto-graduate any match to the SUPERCARD, OR they can UN-graduate a match from the SUPERCARD back to the “undercard” where it will no longer be protected and subject to whatever changes other players want to make.

ADD a Stipulation/Special Referee/Title/Etc. to any match. Patreons will be able to add one to any match on the SUPERCARD or “undercard”. Remember, stipulations stick to matches. However, the option to SWAP a stipulation to another match on the “undercard” will be a move option for players going forward.

Make a standard move. The typical SWAP, ADD, KILL & CREATE and the new SWAP A STIP options will be available in addition to other two moves.

There’s sill time to sign up if you want to play. Remember, longer tenured Pateron supporters will get preferntial treatment.

Thanks for enjoying Mayhem Mania. Now, here’s a new episode of the hottest, new show on the internet, “Talking Mayhem Mania”!
