Mayhem Mania 2019: 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. 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.

 


 

We are in the home stretch of this year’s Mayhem Mania. Only one last stop remains: the dramatic and life-altering Patreon In The Bank round. We have full details on how that will work and what incredible powers will be bestowed upon the Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show at the end of this article.

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 – Round 4 – Round 5 – Round 6 – Round 7

Round 8 of Mayhem Mania 2019 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show on Tuesday, March 19. 5 people were invited to each make a single change to our existing 8 matches on our “undercard”. Any match that survives 3 rounds without being altered in any way GRADUATES to our SUPERCARD. Our goal is graduate 8 matches. So far, two matches have made it. So, we still have a lot of work to do.

A bounty of ELIMINATORS have been awarded during Mayhem Mania. 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.

  • Drake Maverick
  • John Cena

Now, let’s talk about the PATREON IN THE BANK round!

The grand conclusion of Mayhem Mania, in which every Patreon supporter of the Wrestling Mayhem Show is invited to make changes to the matches that go beyond what is typically allowed. This year, we really want to reward those who are most generous in their Patreon support. So, the moves available will be divided into a tier system. The higher your level of support, the more tiers of moves are available to you. Let’s take a look.

$1 Tier
– Access to the Patreon In The Bank round and 1 “standard” move
– Add a stipulation/championship/special referee/etc. to any match on the “undercard” or SUPERCARD
– Invite a surprise entrant to compete in the first-ever “Mayhem Cluster Battle Royal” during the Mayhem Mania kickoff show

$5 Tier
– Additional option under the “standard” move category: SWAP a stipulation/championship/special referee/etc. to a different match
– AUTO-GRADUATE any match on the “undercard” to the SUPERCARD
– Nominate someone to be the HOST of Mayhem Mania 2019! (The official host will be determined by an online vote)

$10 Tier
– AUTO-GRADUATE a match to the SUPERCARD OR DEMOTE a match from the SUPERCARD to the “undercard”
– 1 UN-ELIMINATOR, which allows the player to restore an eliminated individual back to eligibility for this year’s Mayhem Mania

$20 Tier
– Additional option under the “standard” move category: CHANGE THE CONFIGURATION of any match on the “undercard”, using the wrestlers already in the match. For example, turn a 4-way match into a tag team match.
– 1 special ELIMINATOR that can be used on any stipulation/championship/special referee/etc. As it is with the normal ELIMINATOR, this can only be used something that is NOT currently on the card.

Participants in the “Mayhem Cluster Battle Rumble” can be double booked. That means those already in a match can be used a second time and those added to the “Mayhem Cluster Battle Rumble” are still available to be booked in another match.

Because it would be an overwhelming undertaking to prepare and organize doses of “punishment” to be handed out as a reward for every match that GRADUATES to the SUPERCARD, the creators of the matches that GRADUATE during the PITB round will receive another reward: They will get to select a surprise entrant into the “Mayhem Cluster Battle Rumble”. The creator of the graduated match will still receive an ELIMINATOR and get to create a new match to fill the open slot created on the “undercard”.

Again, only Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show will be invited to participate in the Patreon In The Bank round. Also, preferential treatment will be given to those longest-tenured and most generous supporters. There’s still time for you to get in on the fun.
