Wrestling Mayhem Show 651: Cuddly Teddy Bear With Fangs

This week’s episode brought to you by Indy Wrestling USSlice on BroadwayOccupy Pro Wrestling, and IndyWrestling Network!

We made it through the Royal Rumble this past weekend.  But, more importantly, we made it through Week 1 of MayhemMania.  We’ve got Beastman in studio as Sorg, Larry, Mad Mike, and Matt take us through this week in wrestling news, including:

  • Is Becky Lynch the new Stone Cold Steve Austin?
  • Nia Jax entered the men’s Royal Rumble match, which is sparking some new conversation about intergender wrestling.
  • There are two types of wrestling fans: Those who are on board with intergender wrestling, and those who are not. And, there isn’t really any gray area about it.
  • There was a lot of under ring play at this year’s Royal Rumble. Thank you Titus O’Neil?

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.

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.

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!

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.

(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!

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.

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.

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.

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!”.
