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.

Bray Wyatt vs. Bo Dallas

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 2017: 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 (even though it kind of is). Any match created must be possible in real life. 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.


Many weeks ago, we started our journey by creating 8 matches for our card. Then, we started making changes…and more changes…and even more changes. It wasn’t always pretty. Here’s where you can catch up on what happened during Round 1Round 2Round 3Round 4Round 5Round 6Round 7 and Round 8. Any match that survived 3 rounds of Mayhem Mania without being altered in any way, GRADUATED to the SUPERCARD, creating room for new and even more fantastic match ideas. This process led to three graduated matches.

All this hard work and hurt feelings led to the epic Patreon In The Bank round of Mayhem Mania, in which the Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show were invited to make multiple changes, fast-track matches to the SUPERCARD and much more. (more…)
