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.
For those of you who are just joining us, here’s where you can catch up on Mayhem Mania 2019: Opening Round – Round 1 – Round 2
Round 3 of Mayhem Mania 2019 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show on Tuesday, February 12. 5 people were invited to each make a single change to our existing card of 8 matches. Here’s how it went down.
Move 1: Antonio Garza
DELETE Mustafa Ali vs. DJZ and CREATE Chad Gable vs. Kurt Angle
Move 2: BobbyfJTown
DELETE Ricochet vs. Tyler Bate vs. Cesaro vs. Dean Ambrose and CREATE Zelina Vega & Billie Kay & Peyton Royce vs. Io Shirai & Kairi Sane & Asuka
Move 3: Tina Keys
DELETE EC3 vs. Triple H and CREATE Shayna Baszler vs. Meiko Satomura
Move 4: Alex Kahrs
DELETE Chad Gable vs. Kurt Angle and CREATE Zack Ryder vs. No Way Jose
Move 5: Honey Badger
DELETE Chelsea Green vs. Nikki Cross and CREATE War Raiders & Sarah Logan vs. Sanity (Eric Young & Alexander Wolfe & Killian Dane)
With Round 3 now in the books, I’m happy to announcer the first match to GRADUATE to the SUPERCARD! Any match that survives 3 consecutive rounds without being altered in any way GRADUATES to the SUPERCARD, which opens up a new slot for new match ideas.

You’ll notice there are only 7 matches on our “undercard” right now. Because Sorgatron created the match that graduated, he will create a new match to give us our standard 8 before the start of Round 4 next Tuesday. He’ll also get to hand out the first punishment of this year’s Mayhem Mania against one of next Tuesday’s 5 players. Sorgatron also receives an ELIMINATOR.
A bounty of ELIMINATORS were awarded weeks ago, 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
- John Cena
- Randy Orton
- Triple H
That’s quite a list. Another ELIMINATOR will be awarded based on the results of our Elimination Chamber Challenge, in which players predict the winner of the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match and the total time of that match (to decide the tiebreaker).
Join us next week, when five more players will 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.
As always, infinite thanks to Antonio Garza from TheWrestlingRevolution.com for the awesome match graphics and to Larry from Dark Forge Studios for forging the white board that we’re using in studio during the Wrestling Mayhem Show.
As always, thanks for supporting Mayhem Mania!
