  • It was great to see Friend-of-the-Show Britt Baker on the All Elite announcement.
  • Chris Jericho was the big reveal of the All Elite announcement.

  • This week’s Big Question:
    Part 1: Who was your favorite wrestler when you were 14?
    Part 2: Make a match you’d want to see with your 14-year-old wrestler and someone from today’s roster.
  • We’re headed back in time to 2006 – remembering what wrestling was like when the Mayhem Show was born.
  • Mad Mike unearthed a fan mail from Juggalo Jamie – just for our birthday celebration.
  • This is the part of the show where Sorg gets weepy and retrospective about all that he’s seen as a result of the podcast.

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 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.


 

Every journey has a beginning. In Mayhem Mania, that means creating 8 matches for our card. Here’s how it went down on Episode 605 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show(more…)

  • We may or may not be going through the stories we touched upon 12 years ago during the infancy of our humble podcast.
  • Doc Remedy is running down the who’s who of who gave him chops for his birthday that one year.
  • Remembering that we had WWE vs TNA green screen videos back in the day!
  • Doc Remedy has, in fact, walked with Elias.
  • Steam Machine: Chris Jericho is the diet cola of rock ‘n rolla.
  • Now that we’re done reminiscing, we’re recapping CURRENT wrestling to talk about our Wrestle Kingdom slumber party.
  • Hearing Jim Ross try to pronounce Japanese names = Priceless.
  • We’ve got FANMAIL….from April 21, 2009.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Wrestling Mayhem Show 595: Six Star Matches


It’s a full show this week as we’ve got Old School Burt LeGrand in studio with Sorg and Larry.  As a special treat, we’ve got Tonio Garza joining us online, and Mad Mike makes a stop by in the second half.  They’re talking this week in wrestling, including:

  • So – we’re getting something we normally don’t get on the show. That’s right, we’re talking some Impact Wrestling.
  • Apparently Alberto El Patron’s promo was just weird.
  • Impact Wrestling has a casting call for paid background actors?
  • We go from Impact Wrestling to booking nostalgia matches (The Rock v Triple H or Triple H v Kevin Owens?).
  • Triple H with The Shield = Perfect
  • It’s time for this week’s Big Question: What would your Wrestle Kingdom dream match be?
  • We have e-mail! (Kinda.)
  • Stephen Amell is going to ROH?

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…)
