Wrestling Mayhem Show 624: You Can’t Always Have A Clean Finish

This week’s episode brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Occupy Pro Wrestling, and Indy Wrestling US!


The Heir Apparent, Chris LeRusso, is back in studio this week – with some Tag Team bling on his shoulder.  He is joined by Sorg, Larry, Mad Mike, and Bobby as they talk this week’s wrestling news:

  • Sorg has been enjoying the Bugs Bunny cartoon that is Kevin Owens and Braun Strowman on RAW.
  • Chris LeRusso is sharing some thoughts on bad finishes – especially when the match is pretty hot (until the end).
  • When you’re doing your job so well that they have to dial it back?
  • Chris LeRusso is comparing a great wrestling match to great sex.
  • Bobby is ruining hypothetical sex on the show.
  • Mad Mike is sharing some thoughts on Bayley having to go to counseling.
  • Did you guys see (all of) Charlotte Flair this week?
  • Thanks to our friend Daniel Tiger for hitting us up with some Mayhem Voicemail! His question – Which feud would you like to see go on forever?
  • We’re learning about that time Joe Dombrowski had a fireball in a back seat of a car.
  • We’re getting some insight into Chris LeRusso’s character development.
  • Ring of Honor WAS going to do a show at MSG.
  • Blackcraft’s Burning Bridges show in Pittsburgh has officially sold out.
  • Joey Janela is getting lost in New York.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Remember that poster we were giving away?  We took our list of Patreon supporters, booted up WWE 2K16, and let the bots settle it out.  Congratulations to Bradley for winning the Skyscraper poster! Want to catch the Patreon bot fight we used to determine the winner? See it here.

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.

Wrestling Mayhem Show 613: The Haunted Ovaries of Mae Young

This week’s episode is brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Occupy Pro Wrestling, and Indy Wrestling US.

It’s the last Tuesday before WrestleMania, which can only mean one thing…PATREON IN THE BANK!  And, it’s a full house for the occasion.  In addition to being joined by a special guest, Todd DeFazio of Idiot Radio, we’ve got Bobby, Billy F’n Johnson, Larry, Sorg, and Mad Mike talking about:

  • We attended RAW and Smackdown last week (which meant no live show on Podcast Day) so we’re running through our brief thoughts heading into WrestleMania.
  • We’re talking some NXT Takeover as we head into WrestleMania!
  • Is John Cena emoting the same feeling as being turned down at the high school dance or a kid throwing a tantrum? ARE WE SEEING A HEEL TURN ON THE HORIZON?
  • It’s astounding the number of WWE guys without contracts around WrestleMania time…
  • Anyone else notice The Miz’ post-baby glow?
  • Is there a WrestleMania match that’s booked that you can do without?
  • With all the matches booked for WrestleMania, we’re talking about which ones we see winding up as the main event.
  • More Brain Strowman please!
  • It’s officially MayhemMania time. Since it’s the last show before WrestleMania it’s time for Patreon in the Bank!
  • We are eliminating the hell out of Randy Orton in this segment of MayhemMania.
  • Apparently there’s not enough carnage on our MayhemMania card?
  • AJ may have just booked a MayhemMania match with a Hair vs Hair match of RAW v Smackdown women.
  • Matt has a MayhemMania list of cast-offs in a Cleveland cup. It seems so appropriate as our punishment options.
  • We’ve had so many changes to the MayhemMania card that we need to have a refresher halfway through to clarify what we’ve even booked.
  • Billy is using his god-like power as a Pizza Club Patreon supporter to blow this MayhemMania card up.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Thanks to Tonio Garza (@TheWRevolution) for putting together graphics for MayhemMania.

Heading to WrestleMania?  If you see a Mayhemmer, say hi!  If that Mayhemmer’s Mad Mike, give him a chop and send us a pic or video clip.  We’ll include it on next week’s show!

Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 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.


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

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.

Bray Wyatt vs. Bo Dallas

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!

Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 7

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 6

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.

TREVOR “RICOCHET” MANN VS. PETE DUNNE
(CREATED BY @MADMIKE4883)
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.

Honky Tonk Man & Rockabilly vs. Jeff Jarrett & The Roadie vs. Rusev & Aiden English

Batista vs. Brock Lesnar

week7-5

And here are the three matches that survived Week 7 without being altered in any way.

ELIAS VS. THE ROCK
(CREATED BY @MUTILATORLARRY)
week6-3

FINN BALOR VS. ALEISTER BLACK
(CREATED BY @BOBBYFJTOWN)
week1-1

JOHN CENA & BELLAS TWINS VS. UNDERTAKER & LAYCOOL
(CREATED BY @CHADTHESHAD)
week6-1

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!

Wrestling Mayhem Show 611: Deep Into MayhemMania Season


We couldn’t have planned this week’s in-studio guest any better if we tried.  Marcus Mann joins us on the big purple couch to talk about the road to WrestleMania!  He’s joined by Rob, Larry, Sorg, Mad Mike, and Mainstream Matt as they talk about:

  • We’ve got the RYSE Wrestling Head of Talent Relations, Marcus Mann, on the sofa this week!
  • Sorg was in Florida over the weekend, and had a chance to visit the Hulk Hogan shop down there.
  • Marcus Mann is sharing some updates about what they’re up to down at RYSE Wrestling. Want to check it out? Head over to www.indywrestling.us
  • We’ll be getting to some Fastlane and WrestleMania talk shortly. But first – John Cena has a Road to WrestleMania and Marcus couldn’t be happier.
  • John Cena broke RAW.
  • We’re breaking down an interesting comparison between John Cena, Hulk Hogan, and Chris Jericho.
  • It’s the wrestler’s responsibility to take that #1 spot. If someone isn’t taking that spot, then it really belongs to the guy at the top. (In this case John Cena.)
  • Vince McMahon will not give anyone a Jr. suffix because he feels it is demeaning.
  • Sorg apparently ran into Paige at an ICP show last week?
  • Fastlane happened this weekend, and we’ve got a clearer picture about what we’ll be seeing at WrestleMania.
  • We found out Marcus Mann is apparently a huge Brock Lesnar fan, in addition to being a John Cena fan…and a Chris Jericho fan…
  • We’re taking a trip down memory lane…to Summer Slam 2002.
  • You think Brock Lesnar could kill a person – watch him punch Braun Strowman in the face. He’s the closest thing we can get to a Bruiser Brody.
  • Are we setting ourselves up for disappointment by setting our expectations too high for WrestleMania?
  • Thanks to The Bar we can no longer take discussions regarding setting the bar seriously.
  • When ranking WrestleMania events, which one is the “average” by which you should set your expectations by?
  • It’s time for MayhemMania! Let’s see what havoc we can wreak this week!
  • It’s getting near time for Patreon in the Bank. Are you a supporter of the show so you can get in on it https://www.patreon.com/wrestlingmayhemshow
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

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. 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 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!

TREVOR “RICOCHET” MANN VS. PETE DUNNE
(CREATED BY @MADMIKE4883)
week2-2

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.

HONKY TONK MAN & ROCKABILLY VS. JEFF JARRETT & THE ROADIE

AJ STYLES VS. ADAM COLE VS. SAMOA JOE

And here are our five newly created matches.

Asuka vs. Brock Lesnar

week6-3

Batista vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Braun Strowman vs. Drake Maverick

week6-4

Finn Balor vs. Aleister Black
(Created by @Bobbyfjtown)
week1-1

John Cena & Bellas Twins vs. Undertaker & LayCool
(Created by @ChadTheShad)
week6-1

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!”.
