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.
Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1 – Week 2 – Week 3 – Week 4 – Week 5
Week 5 set up all sorts of interesting possibilities in Mayhem Mania. First, he saw our first match survive three straight weeks without being altered in any way and GRADUATE to the SUPERCARD.
MAYHEM MANIA 2018 SUPER CARD!

There’s no going back for that match. It’s locked in, and its creator gets a big pile of rewards. First, Mad Mike had to CREATE a new match to fill the open slot in our “undercard”.

CREATE Asuka vs. John Cena
Mad Mike also gets an ELIMINATOR, which he can use at any time to permanently remove any person from this year’s Mayhem Mania talent pool. One catch: You can’t use the ELIMINATOR on someone who’s currently booked in a match. Mad Mike decided to hold onto his ELIMINATOR and use it in a later round.
Mad Mike also got to hand out a dose of punishment to one of this week’s players. He decided to give it to our special guest on WMS 610, Lucha Underground Co-Executive Producer Chris DeJoseph. More on that in a moment.
All of our players can each make a single change to the card. They have 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 currently on the card.
Here’s how things shook out on Episode 610 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

Because his newly created match did not survive Week 6, Mad Mike will be back next week under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”.
This weekend, we’re playing the FastLane Challenge! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us WHO AJ Styles will defeat to retain the WWE Championship (or, tell us who will take the title from him). Also, include the total time of the match for the tiebreaker. The winner gets their move used in the next round of Mayhem Mania AND that player will get an ELIMINATOR.
Thanks for being part of Mayhem Mania, and join us for next week’s episode entitled “Beastman For Rookie Of The Year” or “I Told You Double J Deserved To Be On This Card!”.
