Mayhem Mania 2019: 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. 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. (more…)

Rob Johnston joins us to talk about some Dojo Pro wrestling. He, of course, is joined by our usual stable of ne’er-do-wells including Sorg, Dave Podnar, and Alex Kahrs as they talk this week in wrestling, including:WMS 7.17.2018

  • Extreme Rules was in Pittsburgh, and we are once again reminded why we can’t have nice things.
  • Sorg was so close at Extreme Rules that he almost took a pancake to the face.

  • Things we are thankful for – The Roman Reigns v Bobby Lashley match didn’t follow the Iron Man Match at Extreme Rules.
  • We didn’t see Elias in his hometown for Extreme Rules – despite the obvious Pittsburgh references throughout.
  • Sorg is sad he didn’t get an awesome Shinsuke v Jeff Hardy match.

  • Mad Mike couldn’t be here this week – so he sent a Mad Mike Mail!
  • eFeds are a thing Alex Kahrs is explaining to us.
