This. Is. Mayhem Mania!
This is the ultimate fantasy booking game/competitive thought experiment. The goal is to create the best WrestleMania card possible – not necessarily to predict what WWE will do. That means we must play by the rules of our current reality. Everyone comes in their current (physical, emotional, psychological, etc.) state. Bottom line, if Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it.
Catch up on the lore! Check out the previous rounds of Mayhem Mania 2020!
It Begins! – Round 1 – Round 2 – Round 3 – Round 4 – Round 5 – Round 6
Mayhem Mania is fine! Despite a rocky Round 6, this year’s card is coming along nicely as a work to reveal the ultimate potential of WWE’s historically vast and deep roster of talent. Every week, we bring in a group of five people to make a single change to improve our 8-match card. Any match that survives three consecutive weeks without being altered in any way gets locked in, and graduates to our SUPERCARD. That opens up a slot for even more match ideas. So far this year, three matches have graduated.

The creator of the matches that graduate get a series of rewards, and for the second time this year Tina gets to reap the rewards of her great matchmaking! Here’s how she used her rewards:
1. One ticket to send an individual to SPACE JAIL (*Those in SPACE JAIL are not eligible to be used during Mayhem Mania, but have a chance to escape as you’ll see in a moment): Tina chose to send Sasha Banks to SPACE JAIL
2. Name an entrant for the 2nd annual Mayhem Cluster Battle Rumble, to be held during the Mayhem Mania preshow. (*Individuals who are entered into the Mayhem Cluster Battle Rumble can still be used in another Mayhem Mania match): Tina chose Killer Kross as her latest entrant.
3. Hand out a dose of punishment! Tina chose to give it to this week’s guest on the Wrestling Mayhem Show, Marcus Mann. As determined by your friendly host, Marcus was forced to use an FCW alumnus.
4. Create a new match to fill to open 8th spot on our “undercard”: Tina created WALTER vs. Drew McIntyre.
Anyone who is in SPACE JAIL is not eligible to be used in Mayhem Mania. This includes mostly people, but also a match concept (which come into play once we reach Patreon In The Bank), WeeLC. Honestly, it’s been a huge inconvenience to me to have to explain the SPACE JAIL gimmick while WeeLC is in there, but it’s not my problem anymore!
With all this business out of the way, let’s get into the meat of this week’s round of Mayhem Mania and run through the latest changes to our “undercard”.
