Mayhem Mania 2018: Patreon In The Bank

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.


Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1 – Week 2 – Week 3 – Week 4 – Week 5 – Week 6 – Week 7 – Week 8

It all comes down to this. After more than two months, Mayhem Mania 2018 has reached its final stop: the epic Patreon In The Bank round! Only Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show were invited to participate and I’m happy to report that we had eight of them take the time to joins us live during Episode 613 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

Remember, any match that survives three consecutive weeks without being altered in any way GRADUATES to our SUPERCARD. So far, that’s happened only once during this year’s Mayhem Mania.

week2-2

We’ve got some work to do. We need to GRADUATE some more matches and we only have a couple more weeks to fill out our SUPERCARD. Let’s see if this week’s players can get us on the right track.

All of our players can each make a single change to the card. They have 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.

Here’s how things shook out on Episode 612 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 8

Move 1: @MutilatorLarry
SWAP Adam Cole for Tommaso Ciampa

Move 2: @Sorgatron
SWAP Bobby Lashley for Daniel Bryan

Move 3: @Bobbyfjtown
SWAP Bayley & Sasha Banks for Kairi Sane & Ember Moon

Move 4: @TheeRizz
KILL Honky Tonk Man & Rockabilly vs. Jeff Jarrett & The Roadie vs. Rusve & Aiden English and CREATE Bray Wyatt vs. Bo Dallas

Move 5: @jworth
SWAP Samoa Joe and Batista

With the Week 8 moves in the books, let’s take a look at our newly created matches.

Larry’s match didn’t survive the round. So, he is invited back for the next round to try again under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”.

The Patreon In The Bank round is coming up on Tuesday, April 3. Only Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show will be invited to take part, and they’ll be granted incredible, far-reaching that will grant them almost godlike powers over our precious card. There’s still time for you to become a Patreon supporter of the Wrestling Mayhem Show and join in on the fun!

week2-2

That’s a pretty good start, but we’re looking for more. It’s Week 7, and we are DEEP into Mayhem Mania season with only ONE graduated match. We gotta get to work!

The first bit of business during Week 7 of Mayhem Mania was the Fastlane Challenge! We got a bunch of entries, but no one correctly predicted that AJ Styles would pin Kevin Owens to retain the WWE Championship. So, we went to the tiebreaker (total time of the match). Brandon was the winner and he gets to make the first move in this round.

Also, Mad Mike is back thanks to the “Alex Kahrs Rule”. That means he gets to make the final move of this round.

All of our players can each make a single change to the card. They have 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.

Here’s how things shook out on Episode 611 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

MAYHEM MANIA 2018: WEEK 7

MOVE 1: @thebdog1318
SWAP Ember Moon & Kairi Sane for Sasha Banks & Bayley

MOVE 2: @RobBrownPA78
ADD Andrade “Cien” Almas to Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles vs. Adam Cole

MOVE 3: @Sorgatron
SWAP Andrade “Cien” Almas for Johnny Gargano

MOVE 4: @MarcusMannBHS
SWAP Asuka for Batista

MOVE 5: @MadMike4883
ADD Rusev & Aiden English to Honky Tonk Man & Rockabilly vs. Jeff Jarrett & The Roadie

With the Week 7 moves in the books, let’s take a look at our newly created matches.

Rob’s match didn’t survive the round. Hell, it didn’t survive the next move. So, Rob is invited back to try again under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”.

Don’t forget, the thrilling Patreon In The Bank round is coming up soon. Only Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show will be invited to take part, and they’ll be granted incredible, far-reaching that will grant them almost godlike powers over our precious card.

What changes do you want to see made to card? Who’s missing that needs to be added? Will any more matches graduate? Honestly, it’s taking a while. A couple other matches have come close, but nothing else has been able to get over the hump.

Anyway, thanks for supporting Mayhem Mania!

Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 6

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.

Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1 – Week 2 – Week 3 – Week 4 – Week 5

Week 5 set up all sorts of interesting possibilities in Mayhem Mania. First, he saw our first match survive three straight weeks without being altered in any way and GRADUATE to the SUPERCARD.

MAYHEM MANIA 2018 SUPER CARD!

There’s no going back for that match. It’s locked in, and its creator gets a big pile of rewards. First, Mad Mike had to CREATE a new match to fill the open slot in our “undercard”.

Pre-Round Move (by @MadMike4883)
CREATE Asuka vs. John Cena

Mad Mike also gets an ELIMINATOR, which he can use at any time to permanently remove any person from this year’s Mayhem Mania talent pool. One catch: You can’t use the ELIMINATOR on someone who’s currently booked in a match. Mad Mike decided to hold onto his ELIMINATOR and use it in a later round.

Mad Mike also got to hand out a dose of punishment to one of this week’s players. He decided to give it to our special guest on WMS 610, Lucha Underground Co-Executive Producer Chris DeJoseph. More on that in a moment.

All of our players can each make a single change to the card. They have 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.

Here’s how things shook out on Episode 610 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 6

Move 1: @MutilatorLarry
SWAP Velveteen Dream for The Rock

Move 2: @Bobbyfjtown
SWAP Brock Lesnar for Aleister Black

Move 3: @ChadTheShad
KILL Asuka vs. John Cena and CREATE John Cena & Bella Twins vs. Undertaker & LayCool

Move 4: @ChrisDeJoseph
(*Punishment: Must Use Member Of 205 Live Roster)
ADD Drake Maverick to Batista vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Braun Strowman

Move 5: @MadMike4883
KILL Triple H vs. Kurt Angle and CREATE Asuka vs. Brock Lesnar

With the Week 6 moves in the books, let’s take a look at our newly created matches.

Because his newly created match did not survive Week 6, Mad Mike will be back next week under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”.

This weekend, we’re playing the FastLane Challenge! Send an email to [email protected] Tell us WHO AJ Styles will defeat to retain the WWE Championship (or, tell us who will take the title from him). Also, include the total time of the match for the tiebreaker. The winner gets their move used in the next round of Mayhem Mania AND that player will get an ELIMINATOR.

Thanks for being part of Mayhem Mania, and join us for next week’s episode entitled “Beastman For Rookie Of The Year” or “I Told You Double J Deserved To Be On This Card!”.

 

Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 5

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.

Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1 – Week 2 – Week 3 – Week 4

What an eventful Week 5 in Mayhem Mania 2018. First, Dave Podnar was the winner of the first ELIMINATION CHAMBER CHALLENGE! He correctly predicted Roman Reigns would win the men’s Chamber match and earned himself the right to make the first move in Week 5. We’ll be doing a FASTLANE CHALLENGE as well. Check out TALKING Mayhem Mania for more on that.

In Week 5 of Mayhem Mania 2018, each of our five players were invited to make a single change to the card. They have FOUR 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.
4. SUBTRACT anyone person or team from the card. (This option as available exclusively during Week 5 of Mayhem Mania)

With all that said, here’s how it will went down on Episode 609 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 5

Move 1: Dave Podnar
SWAP EC3 for Velveteen Dream

Move 2: @MadMike4883
SUBTRACT Roderick Strong

Move 3: @RebelliousFlaw
KILL Asuka vs. Charlotte vs. Nikki Cross vs. Ronda Rousey and CREATE Triple H vs. Kurt Angle

Move 4: @HotWheelzRWA
ADD Samoa Joe to AJ Styles vs. Adam Cole

Move 5: @BeastmanHusk
KILL Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin vs. The Bar vs. The Revival vs. Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly and CREATE Honky Tonk Man & Rockabilly vs. Jeff Jarrett vs. The Roadie.

With the Week 5 moves now in the books, here are the four newly created matches on our card.

The fourth surviving match from Week 5 is also the first this year to survive three straight weeks without being altered in any way. That means Trevor “Ricochet” Mann vs. Pete Dunne GRADUATES to the SUPER CARD of Mayhem Mania 2018.

Mayhem Mania 2018 SUPER CARD!

As creator of the graduating match, Mad Mike is entitled to several rewards. First, and most necessary, he will create a new match to fill the open slot in our “undercard” before the Week 6 moves commence. He’ll get to hand out a dose of punishment to another player. Finally, he’ll get an ELIMINATOR, which he can use at any time to ELIMINATE any human being not currently on our card from being eligible for use in this year’s Mayhem Mania.

In addition, Mad Mike is the latest application of the “Alex Kahrs Rule” due to his match not surviving to the end of Week 5’s round. Thus, he will get the last move in Week 6. That’s right. He’s not only batting lead-off, he’s batting cleanup too. God help us all.

For those of you that just can’t get enough Mad Mike, here he is taking part in the 10-minute giggle fest that was this past week’s episode of the HOTTEST show on the internet: TALKING Mayhem Mania!

Thanks for being part of Mayhem Mania, and join us for next week’s episode entitled “Beastman For Rookie Of The Year” or “I Told You Double J Deserved To Be On This Card!”.

Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1 – Week 2 – Week 3

Before we get into what’s happened, I must mention what’s coming next. We’ll be doing a special Viewer’s Choice move in our next round and instead of using fate to randomly choose which of your moves to use, we’ll be adding some skill into the mix with the ELIMINATION CHAMBER CHALLENGE!

Here’ how it works: When you send in your move, also give us your prediction for who will win Sunday’s men’s Elimination Chamber match and total time for the match (the tiebreaker will be decided by whoever came the closest without going over). We’ll reward the correct prediction by using your move in next week’s round. What a deal!

We had two players back for Week 4 of Mayhem Mania 2018 under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, Kyle Turner andBobbyfjtown. All of our players can each make a single change to the card. They have 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.

Here’s how things shook out on Episode 608 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

Wrong Side of Town

Wrong Side of Town

Why you hiding back there RVD?

A few weeks back, I was surprised to find out, thanks to Doc Remedy, that Wrong Side of Town was coming out, completely under the radar, starring Rob Van Dam, and current WWE star, and hell, champion, David Batista.  Or was that Bautista?   Yes, they had to use his real name.  And a WWE Films project, this is not.

You might have been surprised by that fact.  It’s straight to DVD, as the last two WWE Films were, and still involves  a WWE contracted wrestler that I don’t remember taking that much time off.  Anyways, I was also amazed to find this movie was available maybe a week after release…on Netflix Streaming.  What?  This can’t be a good sign.

So I sat down and took a look.  First, you would think that Batista is prominently featured based on that cover.  But no, Rob Van Dam is our hero.  Batista maybe gets twenty minutes, and it looked like you don’t even see him until about 40 minutes.  Over half way through the movie.  We know a few things: 1. Batista loves the strip club 2. Batista looks ridiculous holding a mini machine gun, 3. this is where he got his latest heel look.  Rob Van Dam is…Rob Van Dam.   He’s supposed to be a hard ass Navy Seal, but is hobbled by an injury early into the action and limps about.  Of course forgetting how to sell whenever he has to fight a mob of bad guys.  Big Daddy V/Viscera/Mable makes an appearance that makes you appreciate how big this guy is.

But is it enjoyable?  Well, it sort of makes The Marine 2 look like high art, actually.  The editing is novice.  The script is rough.  The bad guy in this film uses the same insults multiple times.  “Rat bastard”, I believe it was, and it sounded forced every time.  The fights are ok.  The humor is almost nonexistant.  In the end, I failed to find the point of this film.

Welcome to the No Holds Barred of 2010!  Watch it/collect it for your wrestlers in film curiosity, but that’s about it.
