Mayhem Mania 2019: Round 1

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 of Mayhem Mania 2019 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show on Tuesday, January 29. 5 people were invited to each make a single change to our existing card of 8 matches. Here’s how it went down.

Move 2 (by Mad Mike)
DELETE Pete Dunne vs. Drew McIntyre and CREATE EC3 vs. John Cena

Move 3 (by Tina Keys)
DELETE KUSHIDA vs. Lio Rush and CREATE Sanity vs. Gallus

Move 4 (by Jen Carlins)
ADD Dean Ambrose to Braun Strowman vs. Tyler Bate vs. Cesaro

Move 5 (by Beastman)

Any match that survives 3 consecutive weeks without being altered in any way will graduate to our SUPERCARD, opening up a new slot for new match ideas.

Prior to the start of Round 2, a bounty of ELIMINATORS were awarded 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

Next week, five more players will join us to 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.

  • Ronda Rousey has gone from MMA to wrestling – just like our in-studio guest the Savage Gentleman.
  • Everyone’s quick to judge Ronda Rousey, but you can’t look at the current women’s revolution without giving her props.
  • MMA was against having a women’s division – but look at how much women have changed the sport.
  • Although Ronda Rousey may be “new” to WWE, she paid her dues in MMA and has built her legacy.

  • NXT Takeover Brooklyn happened. We’re sharing our thoughts.
  • The Savage Gentleman and Lady Frost are sharing how much they LOVED the first match of NXT Takeover Brooklyn.
  • Different kinds of wrestling are like different flavors of ice cream. Everyone has their own preferences.
  • Settling an in-house debate: Do you watch Facebook videos with or without sound?
  • Table for 3 is all about Twitter. Mayhem Show is all about Facebook.
  • Velveteen Dream going totally Rick Rude with his “Call Me Up Vince” tights = Priceless.
  • We’re pretty much learning that what’s old is new again.
  • We’re talking some Ciampa v Johnny Gargano from NXT Takeover Brooklyn.
  • Demon Balor on SummerSlam seemed to go over more for the ladies than the gents.

Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1

Welcome to Week 2 of Mayhem Mania. Last week, we created the eight matches that make up the framework for our card of incredible matches. Now, the real fun begins. On Episode 606 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show, five players were invited to each make a single change to the card. They had 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.

Let’s see how they did. (more…)

Wrestling Mayhem Show 606: Darkwing Spud

It’s the second week of Mayhem Mania!  Just for the occasion, we’ve got a direct connection to Yinza the Pittsburgh Luchador with Dave Fedor joining us in studio.  Of course we’ve got our usual crew of Sorg, Matt, Larry, Mad Mike, and Rizz talking this week in wrestling, including:

  • So, Coach is back, and apparently Booker T isn’t happy about it.
  • #SadTozawa
  • 205 Live going back to a Cruiserweight Classic model? We’re digging it.
  • Will we be seeing a Neville return?
  • We’re tracing down the name history of Drake Mallard. Let’s just say Darkwing Spud is our new favorite thing.
  • WWE’s new cutest couple? Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss! #MotherOfStrowmans
  • We’re breaking down the comparison between scripted content and off-the-cuff reality content with WWE.
  • Elias swings the crowd almost as well as Vince McMahon. #LikeableHeel

Wrestling Mayhem Show 605: The Return of Mayhem Mania

It’s a full house this week as we’ve got Sorg, Larry, Bobby, Mad Mike, Billy, and Mainstream Matt in studio. As a special treat, comedian Jaye Cooper joins us as we kick off Mayhem Mania! This week’s show is packed. We’re a few days removed from NXT Takeover, the Royal Rumble, and a host of other wrestling shows over the weekend – which means we have a TON to talk about:WMS

  • The worst thing for Sorg – when he can’t recognize local wrestlers in their street clothes.
  • So much rumbling happened this weekend! We’re giving our thoughts.
  • Royal Rumble appearance of Rey Mysterio confused us after watching the last season of Lucha Underground.
  • We have mixed reviews of the return of The Hurricane from Royal Rumble.
  • We’re crossing the wrestling streams because of NJPW, WWE, and IMPACT happenings and shuffles.
  • We’re fans of all kinds of wrestling.
  • OH: I met him one time at a funeral…
  • Welcome to Wrestle Kingdom two years ago WWE fans.
  • The Women’s Rumble exceeded many of our expectations.
  • Sorg wants a Total Taker show with Undertaker and Michelle McCool.
  • We’re following the #JacobsForMayor campaign, because Kane.
  • Royal Rumble had matches other than rumbly things. Things happened.
  • Braun Strowman teaching Alexa Bliss how to flip a car is the best thing ever.
  • Mad Mike was in the same building as Ray Rowe, Ricochet, and EC3 this weekend.
  • We’re rebranding Ricochet as Rick O’Shea so he can keep his name.
  • Mad Mike and Larry are teaming up to take on War Machine for the Tag Titles.
  • We’re talking some NXT Takeover and Johnny Wrestling.
  • We’re talking some Kassius Ohno options with NXT.
  • Holy $#!% Adam Cole match at NXTTakeover.
  • As big a night Royal Rumble was for Japan, NXT Takeover was just as big for Cleveland.
  • This week’s Big Question: Who left from IMPACT Wrestling do you want to see pop up in WWE?
  • It’s Mayhem Mania time!
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?
  • We learned collaboratively that Jaye Cooper thinks he can take on Ray Rowe. (For the record – we vehemently disagree.)

Wrestling Mayhem Show 596: Parallelogram of Doom


BC Steele is in studio with us this week!  He is joined by our usual cast of characters – Sorg and Larry.  And, hot off his video game weekend for Extra Life, Bobby F J-Town is live via the internets as we talk this week in wrestling, including:

  • Survivor Series – something we always seem to forget about until it’s upon us.
  • WWE is stepping up their game with Survivor Series by calling in some big names to be in-ring with the brand split.
  • There is buzz around this year’s Survivor Series – some good; some bad; but, legit buzz.
  • We’re breaking down some AJ Styles v Brock Lesnar.
  • What talent does WWE have in the pipeline to sustain them 5 years from now?
  • This may be the oldest Survivor Series talent line-up.
  • The Shield vs The New Day – We’re looking at a potentially good tag match.
  • We’re calling a Kurt Angle singles match by Wrestlemania.
  • Anyone else notice that WWE uses their own terminology – like “local medical facility” and “title held in abeyance?”
  • The Charlotte v Alexa Bliss match has the potential to steal the show.
  • War Games is coming. We’re sharing some thoughts.
  • The many faces of Alicia Fox.
    It’s time for this week’s Big Question: What is your favorite Broadway (long time limit) match? (Thanks Tina.)
