Mayhem Mania 2016 – 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, we have to play by the same rules as Vince McMahon.

If you’re just joining us, here are the recaps of previous rounds.
Round 1Round 2 – Round 3 – Round 4 – Round 5 – Round 6 – Round 7 – Round 8 – Round 9


The spectacular and unpredictable Patreon In The Bank round of Mayhem Mania 2016 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show (@MayhemShow) on March 15. Only Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show were eligible to partcipate. As thanks for their financial support, they were granted the opportunity to make up to five moves.

1) Fast-track GRADUATE one match to the SUPERCARD
2) If necessary, CREATE a new match to fill the slot on the “undercard” left open by the just-graduated match
3) Make a traditional “move” or a change to the “undercard”.
4) Add a stipulation to any match
5) Just for fun, add a sponsor to any match.

Whenever a match GRADUATES to the SUPERCARD, the player who created it gets an ELIMINATOR. It can be used a single time, at any time, to remove any single person from Mayhem Mania 2016. Those on the current card are protected from the ELIMINATOR, but if they are traded out for someone else, they would be vulnerable. Before the start of the Patreon In The Bank round, Eamon Paton cashed in and ELIMINATORED…Mr. Anderson! I’ll have the updated list of who has an ELIMINATOR to use later.

One match graduated following Round 9 last week. Sorgatron created it, so he got to CREATE a match to fill the open slot on the “undercard”.

What’s left for these eight matches on the “undercard”, a shot at the Mayhem Mania pre-show! Next week, we’ll hold the final round of Mayhem Mania 2016. Players will get to make some final changes to the “undercard” matches. After that, we will have a vote on the Wrestling Mayhem Show Facebook page to decide which one will get a spot on the Mayhem Mania pre-show.

There will be more. Because there were two changes to what became the Paige vs. Asuka vs. Charlotte vs. Bayley match during the Patreon In The Bank round, the “Alex Kahrs Rule” applies to both Ed Burke and Alex Kahrs himself. They’ll be invited back next week to make the final moves of the final round of Mayhem Mania 2016. Also, both will get to hand out a dose of “punishment” to the other players.

Finally, because six matches GRADUATED to the SUPERCARD during Patreon In The Bank, six ELIMINATORS are hereby awarded. Bobby actually gets two ELIMINATORS because two of his matches graduated. Also joining Sorgatron in the group with a single ELIMINATOR to use: Stosh from MaxXouT, Antonio Garza, A.J. and Jen Carlins.

What changes would you make to the “undercard”? Which one deserves to be on the Mayhem Mania pre-show? Who deserves to be punished Share your feedback with us, and thanks for your support of Mayhem Mania!

Mayhem Mania 2016 – Round 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 (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, we have to play by the same rules as Vince McMahon.

If you’re just joining us, here are the recaps of previous rounds.
Round 1Round 2 – Round 3 – Round 4 – Round 5 – Round 6 – Round 7 


Round 8 of Mayhem Mania 2016 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show (@MayhemShow) on SUPER Tuesday, March 1. Five members of the WMS Universe were chosen to make a single “move” or a change to the card. They had the usual 3 options:

1. SWAP a wrestler/tag team with another already on the card.
2. ADD an unused wrestler/tag team to an existing match.
3. TRADE a wrestler/match for an entirely new match with unused wrestlers.

In addition, the SUBTRACT option is still in play. It can be used to remove one person from any match (singles matches not eligible. That would be weird). This option can be used only once during Mayhem Mania. After that, it’s gone forever.

Any match that survives 3 rounds in Mayhem Mania without being altered GRADUATES to the SUPER CARD, and it finally happened following Round 7.

MAYHEM MANIA 2016 – THE SUPERCARD!

W4M1

That opens a slot for a new match to be created on the “undercard”. Since Eamon created the match that graduated, he got to the create the new match to fill the opening. In addition, Eamon was granted a second prize – The ELIMINATOR. He can use this at any time to remove any single person from Mayhem Mania 2016. Those on the current card are protected from the ELIMINATOR, but if they are traded out for someone else, they would be vulnerable. Eamon can hold on to this move as long as he wants before using it.

Eamon also got the last move in Round 8 under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, and got to hand out a dose of “punishment” to one of the other participants, forcing one to spin the Wheel Of NXT Tag Teams Not Named Enzo & Big Cass and using whichever team is lands on. Eamon was a busy boy in Round 8, and as you will see, he proved himself to be a true master of Mayhem Mania. Even I was astonished by how well he played his accumulated advantage into something even greater.

Mayhem Mania 2016 – Round 8

Move 1 (@Eamon2Please)
CREATE Kane vs. Baron Corbin

Move 2 (@Sorgatron)
TRADE Luke Harper for Rusev

Move 3 (@Bobbyfjtown)
(*Forced to spin the Wheel Of NXT Tag Teams Not Named Enzo & Big Cass, which landed on Blake & Murphy)
TRADE Shane McMahon & Ronda Rousey vs. Triple H & Stephanie McMahon for Blake & Murphy vs. American Alpha vs. The Revival

Move 4 (Antonio Garza – @TheWRevolution)
TRADE The New Day vs. Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady & Mark Henry for Roman Reigns vs. Jimmy Uso vs. Jey Uso vs. Nia Jax

 Move 5 (@MadMike4883)
TRADE Natalya vs. Asuka for Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady vs. Shane McMahon & Ronda Rousey

Move 6 (@Eamon2Please)
TRADE Kane for Mojo Rawley

That’s right. Eamon created a match with the intention of altering it later. Under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, that gurantees him the final move in Round 9 next week. It’s devious. It’s brilliant.

Here are the 3 matches that survived Round 8 without being altered in any way.

Round 7 of Mayhem Mania 2016 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show (@MayhemShow) on February 23. Five members of the WMS Universe were chosen to make a single “move” or a change to the card. They had the usual 3 options:

1. SWAP a wrestler/tag team with another already on the card.

In addition, the new SUBTRACT option was introduced this week. It can be used to remove one person from any match (singles matches not eligible. That would be weird). This option can be used only once during Mayhem Mania. After that, it’s gone forever.

With that little twist now in play, let’s see how things played out this week.

 

Mayhem Mania 2016 – Round 7

Move 1 (@MadMike4883)
TRADE Kane & Roman Reigns vs. Luke Harper & Undertaker for Triple H & Stephanie McMahon vs. Shane McMahon & Ronda Rousey

Move 2 (@Eamon2Please)

Move 4 (@TheeRizz)

Move 5 (@HotWheelzRWA)
ADD Kalisto to Shinsuke Nakamura vs. A.J. Styles

Any match that survives 3 rounds in Mayhem Mania without being altered GRADUATES to the SUPER CARD, and I’m happy to report…we have finally done it! After 7 brutal rounds, and several close calls, we have our first graduated match!

He will also get the last move next week under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, and will get to hand out a dose of “punishment” to one of the other participants.

No more than 8 matches are allowed on the preliminary card at any one time. The goal is to graduate 8 matches before the real WrestleMania. I don’t know if we’re going to make it, but this is a nice start. Let’s look at the rest of the Mayhem Mania card after Round 7. First, here are the 3 other matches that survived the round without being altered in any way.

Round 1Round 2 – Round 3 – Round 4 


Round 5 of Mayhem Mania 2016 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show (@MayhemShow) on February 9. Six members of the WMS Universe were chosen to make a single “move” or a change to the card. They had 3 options:

1. SWAP a wrestler/tag team with another already on the card.
2. ADD an unused wrestler/tag team to an existing match.
3. TRADE a wrestler/match for an entirely new match with unused wrestlers.

Under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, Mad Mike was granted the final move of Round 5. In addition, I added a second special perk as compensation for Mike’s Round 4 move being undone before the round’s conclusion. He got to choose who received this week’s “punishment” and was forced to use a name drawn from the infamous Jar Of Midcarders. This addendum to the “Alex Kahrs Rule” will be observed in all future cases with a variety of “punishments” to be revealed as needed.

And now…on with the show!

The addendum to the “Alex Kahrs Rule” didn’t prevent Antonio Garza’s move from being undone before the end of Round 5.

Mad Mike’s move was undone before the end of the round. That makes him the latest to be granted another opportunity under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, which states that if the change a participant makes to the card doesn’t survive to see the end of the round, he or she gets a guaranteed invitation to make the final move in the next round, ensuring their next move will survive for at least a week.

Round 5 is next Tuesday night on the Wrestling Mayhem Show. Mad Mike will be joined by at least 4 other participants. We’ll also see the return of the Jar Of Midcarders. See who is forced to use a wrestlers they don’t want and the other changes that go down during the live broadcast at live.sorgatronmedia.com starting around 9 p.m. I also encourage you to check out how Mayhem Mania played out last year.

Mayhem Mania 2016 – Round 3

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 and emotional conditions. 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, we have to play by the same rules as Vince McMahon.

If you’re just joining us, here are the recaps of previous rounds.
Round 1Round 2


Round 3 of Mayhem Mania 2016 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show (@MayhemShow) on January 26. Four members of the WMS Universe were chosen to make a single “move” or a change to the card. They had 3 options:

1. SWAP a wrestler/tag team with another already on the card.
2. ADD an unused wrestler/tag team to an existing match.
3. TRADE a match for an entirely new match with unused wrestlers.

Move 1 (@AlexanderKahrs)
ADD El Torito to Finn Bálor vs. Alberto Del Rio

Move 2 (@MadMike4883)
TRADE Finn Bálor vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. El Torito for Bayley vs. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte

Move 3 (@TheeRizz)
TRADE Kevin Owens vs. Chris Jericho (in a suit) for Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper (in a suit)

Move 4 (@Eamon2Please)
TRADE Kalisto for Kevin Owens

With the latest moves now on the books, let’s look at the Mayhem Mania card after Round 3. First, here are the 5 matches that survived the round without being altered in any way. Remember, any match that survives 3 rounds without being altered GRADUATES to the SUPER CARD. That will open a slot for a new match to be created. No more than 8 matches are allowed on the card at any one time. The goal is to graduate 8 matches before the real WrestleMania.

It’s all but certain that someone will add a Tuxedo Match stipulation if this match survives to see the Patreon In The Bank Round, but that’s still weeks away and a lot can change before then.

After seeing Alex Kahrs’ change to the card be undone before the end of the round, I decided to add a new rule to Mayhem Mania going forward. If the change a participant makes to the card doesn’t survive to see the end of the round, he or she gets a guaranteed invitation to make another move in the next round. That’s not all. That person will make the final move of the following round. That will ensure that their next move will not be undone, and will survive for at least a week.

The new rule means Alex Kahrs will return for Round 4 next Tuesday night on the Wrestling Mayhem Show. He will be joined by 4 other participants. See which changes go down during the live broadcast at live.sorgatronmedia.com starting around 9 p.m.

Round 1 of Mayhem Mania 2016 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show (@MayhemShow) on January 12. Four members of the WMS Universe each created a single match. 4 more are needed to reach our goal of 8 matches. That brings us to Round 2, which was held on the WMS on January 19. Here’s what this week’s contestants came up with.

1. SWAP a wrestler/tag team with another already on the card.
2. ADD an unused wrestler/tag team to an existing match.
3. TRADE a match for an entirely new match with unused wrestlers.

No more than 8 matches are allowed on the card at any one time. Any match that survives 3 rounds without being altered GRADUATES to the SUPER CARD. That will open a slot for a new match to be created. The goal is to graduate 8 matches before the real WrestleMania.
