Every year, we bring together fans, wrestlers and other folks. Our goal is to construct the BEST WrestleMania card that’s currently possible. Everyone under a WWE contract is eligible to use, as are those who are within the orbit of WWE’s influence. If Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it!
Not every WWE wrestler is eligible to use. Under the rules of Mayhem Mania, everyone comes in their current physical, emotional and contractual state. That means anyone out with an injury is NOT eligible to use. (We are ignoring COVID-19 diagnoses because this is supposed to be a fun diversion, not a reminder of the terrible things happening around us.)
Others are not eligible to use for a different reason. Some of them are locked in SPACE JAIL.
SPACE JAIL is not a life sentence. A lucky spin of our prize wheel can free one of them. Fortunately, that did not happen before Round 4 and SPACE JAIL remains secure…for now.
5 players were invited onto the Wrestling Mayhem Show for Round 4 of Mayhem Mania 2021. Each can make ONE of the following changes to our card:
– SWAP one wrestler or team with one in another match on the card or replace them with a wrestler or team not currently on the card – ADD a wrestler or team to an existing match – DELETE a match in its entirety and replace it with a new match using entirely new wrestlers – MATCH SWAP: This year, we have a designated “cinematic match” slot on our card. A player can choose to swap an existing match on the card for the match currently in that “cinematic match” slot.
With all that business out of the way, let’s take a look at the changes made during Round FOUR of Mayhem Mania 2021!
Move #1 (by Brandon) DELETE Io Shirai vs. Rey Mysterio and CREATE Toni Storm vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Becky Lynch
Move #2 (by Mad Mike) DELETE Elias & Drew McIntyre & Jinder Mahal vs. Damien Priest & Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch and CREATE Bray Wyatt & Alexa Bliss vs. Johnny Mundo & Taya
Move #3 (by Tina Keys) DELETE The IIconics vs. Riott Squad and CREATE Tommaso Ciampa vs. Cesaro
Move #4 (by The Rizz) DELETE Finn Balor vs. Kyle O’Reilly vs. Timothy Thatcher vs. Ilja Dragunov and CREATE Asuka vs. Meiko Satomura
Move #5 (by Chad The Shad) DELETE Mercedes Martinez vs. Sasha Banks and CREATE Pat McAfee & Rob Gronkowski vs. Adam Pearce & Bad Bunny
With Round 4 in the books, we now have FIVE new matches on our card.
Bray Wyatt & Alexa Bliss vs. Johnny Mundo & Taya (Created by Mad Mike) (*Designated as “cinematic match”)
Tommaso Ciampa vs. Cesaro (Created by Tina Keys)
Toni Storm vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Becky Lynch (Created by Brandon)
Adam Pearce & Bad Bunny vs. Pat McAfee & Rob Gronkowski (Created by Chad The Shad)
Asuka vs. Meiko Satomura (Created by The Rizz)
Here are the three matches that survived Round 4 without being changed.
Raquel Gonzalez vs. Beth Phoenix (Created by Tina Keys)
Samoa Joe vs. Karrion Kross vs. Aleister Black (Created by “The Rev” Ron Hunt)
Keith Lee vs. Pete Dunne vs. Roman Reigns (Created by Alex Kahrs)
If a match survives THREE rounds without being altered in any way, it will GRADUATE to our SUPERCARD. The creator of the match will receive rewards, including creating a new match to fill the open slot on our “undercard”. Our goal is to GRADUATE eight matches to our SUPERCARD by the time Mayhem Mania 2021 comes to an end.
One final note: Following Round 4, Chad The Shad used the two SPACE JAIL tickets he earned in our Royal Rumble contest to send BOTH IIconics – Peyton Royce and Billie Kay – to SPACE JAIL. In the process, the devious Chad exposed DEEP divides among the Mayhem Mania players in regards to how they desperate they are to see The IIconics in a Mayhem Mania.
Do The IIconics deserve to be in SPACE JAIL? What matches do you want to see us make? The only way to find out is to keep following Mayhem Mania 2021!
