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

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!

Wrestling Mayhem Show 612: A Wrestling Episode of Scooby Doo

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

WWE may have infiltrated our local wrestling scene this past weekend, which can only mean we’ve got some great content from indy wrestling that’s still very relevant to this show!  Even better – we’ve got Farnsworth joining us on the big purple couch to add his thoughts to the mix.  As usual, he’s joined by our usual cast of characters as we’ve got Sorg and Larry in studio with Bobby F J-Town and Rizz on live via the internets!

  • We collectively learned in wrestling this week that the Honky Tonk Man sings at live shows.
  • Daniel Bryan has been cleared for action – just in time for Mayhem Mania. (And, we have differing views on this week’s show.)
  • The Ultimate DELETION (finally) happened on RAW!
  • The Ultimate DELETION wasn’t shown on the Hulu cut? Or in the arena at RAW?
  • Bobby had a James Ellsworth experience this past weekend.
  • Did James Ellsworth spoil Ultimate DELETION for Bobby?
  • It’s time for MayhemMania!
  • Farnsworth is wearing a Dragonball Z design of the Neon Blondes shirt options with Facade and Dani Mo for this week’s show!
  • Friend of the Show Chris LeRusso has some points on the Daniel Bryan return to the ring.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling 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

Wrestling Mayhem Show 604: Rumble with Elias


We’ve got a special guest in studio this week as we’re joined by comedian Matt Light.  And, there is a ton of stuff to talk about this week, including:

  • Our guest Matt Light mixes wrestling with comedy. The best of both worlds.
  • Larry has a foam finger – but not the finger you’re thinking…
  • We are 1 degree of separation from Honky Tonk Man at this very moment.
  • RVD has a comedy (?) show?
  • So, RAW 25 happened last night. We’ve got plenty of thoughts.
  • When Christian is compared to Marty Jannetty.
  • We’re sharing some thoughts about the RAW 25 venue split and how WE thought it should have been done.
  • The APA segments of RAW 25 made the night for most of us.
  • Royal Rumble is this weekend. And, Dolph Ziggler is favored to win?
  • Our guest Matt Light is calling it now – Dolph Ziggler comes out at #30 – – – to Daniel Bryan’s theme music.
  • Sorg is waiting for Jason Jordan to snap. Mad Mike is waiting for a Shield break-up turn by Jordan, and Matt Light is just calling for him to get his future endeavored letter.
  • Why did they not have Jerry Springer on RAW 25 with a “You are not the father!” spot with Kurt Angle and Jason Jordan.
  • We’re takling about who we want to win the Royal Rumble this year and who we think will win.
  • Mainstream Matt is calling for an Elias Money In The Bank win – so we can have an MITB guitar case!
  • Nia Jax v. Asuka can be this generation’s Andre v. Hogan.
  • Will AJ Styles v. Sami and KO match be the comedy match for Royal Rumble?
  • Science: Shane McMahon cannot win a Royal Rumble match because he goes to the top rope too much.
  • Will we see Karma for the Women’s Royal Rumble?
  • We found some Friend of the Show folks by searching their names on the WWE Network.
  • This week’s Big Question: What is the future of 205 LIVE?
  • Abeyance is the new 205 LIVE champion! Woooooooo!
  • NXT Takeover is coming up soon. We’re sharing some thoughts.

Wrestling Mayhem Show 600: 600 Tuesdays

Things are getting a little mayhemmy for our year-end Christmas episode.  We’ve even got our favorite imaginary friend in studio as we’re joined by Billy Ruxpin!  But, wait – there’s more.  We’ve pulled good ol’ Dj Lunchbox off the shelf and dusted him off just for the occasion!  WMS 600

  • We’ve been doing this for 600 Tuesdays?

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:

  • AJ Styles v Brock Lesnar? Thank you WWE.

  • Burt is calling for an in-ring return of Daniel Bryan?
  • Garza is talking some New Japan and Chris Jericho v Kenny Omega.

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…)
