Mayhem Mania 2021: Patreon In The Bank

It must be Mayhem Mania season!

Every year, we bring together fans, wrestlers and other folks. Our goal is to construct the BEST WrestleMania card that’s currently possible. Everyone under a WWE contract is eligible to use, as are those who are within the orbit of WWE’s influence. If Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it!

If you’re just tuning in, here’s how we got to this point.

Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 2
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 3
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 4

Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 6

Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 8
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 9

There are two “tiers” to Mayhem Mania. The 8-match “undercard”, where our players create and make changes to matches, and the SUPERCARD. To reach the SUPERCARD, a match must survive three rounds on the “undercard” without being altered in any way, but that changes in our final round – Patreon In The Bank.

With no more time to wait on matches to GRADUATE, we invite the Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show into the final round of Mayhem Mania, imbue them with the authority to make massive changes to our card and enjoy the pandemonium. Some Patreons were granted the authority to imprison and even FREE individuals from SPACE JAIL! Here’s what it looked like heading into Patreon In The Bank.

SPACE JAIL Tickets can also be earned when a match GRADUATES. The creator of the match gets that reward. In addition, the match creator gets to hand out a dose of “punishment” to another player. Our friend Chad The Shad created a board of random numbers and letters which concealed the names of individuals that the “punished” player would be forced to use.

With only ONE match on our SUPER CARD heading into the Patreon In The Bank round, we had to GRADUATE seven matches! Here’s the record of how it all went down.

Mayhem Mania 2021: Round 9

It must be Mayhem Mania season!

Every year, we bring together fans, wrestlers and other folks. Our goal is to construct the BEST WrestleMania card that’s currently possible. Everyone under a WWE contract is eligible to use, as are those who are within the orbit of WWE’s influence. If Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it!

If you’re just tuning in, here’s how we got to this point.

Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 4

Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 7
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 8

There are two “tiers” to Mayhem Mania. The 8-match “undercard”, where our players create and make changes to matches, and the SUPERCARD. To reach the SUPERCARD, a match must survive three rounds on the “undercard” without being altered in any way. So far, only one match has made it.

MAYHEM MANIA 2021 SUPERCARD

Raquel Gonzalez vs. Beth Phoenix
(Created by Tina Keys)

That’s a pretty darn good match, but we still have a lot of work to do.

Not everyone is eligible to use in Mayhem Mania. They must be under a WWE contract or otherwise within WWE’s orbit of influence. Also, everyone comes in their current physical/contractual/etc. state (We are ignoring COVID-19 diagnoses because this is supposed to be a fun diversion, not a reminder of the terrible things happening around us.). Simply put, if Vince McMahon can’t do it, you can’t do it!

Other wrestlers are not eligible to use because one of our players has sent them to SPACE JAIL.

* “Cell numbers” correspond with the numbers on our prize wheel.

Every week we spin our prize wheel to give one of the SPACE JAIL inmates a chance to escape. Thankfully, SPACE JAIL remained secure this week.

5 players were invited onto the Wrestling Mayhem Show for the latest round of Mayhem Mania 2021. Each can make ONE of the following changes to our card:

– SWAP one wrestler or team with one in another match on the card or replace them with a wrestler or team not currently on the card
– ADD a wrestler or team to an existing match
– DELETE a match in its entirety and replace it with a new match using entirely new wrestlers
– SUBTRACT an individual from an exisiting match.
– MATCH SWAP: This year, we have a designated “cinematic match” slot on our card. A player can choose to swap an existing match on the card for the match currently in that “cinematic match” slot.

With all that business out of the way, here’s how things went down during Round 9 of Mayhem Mania.

Move #1 (by Brandon)
DELETE Drew McIntyre vs. Adam Cole and CREATE Kevin Owens vs. Matt Martel

Move #2 (by Tina Keys)
DELETE Alexa Bliss & Bray Wyatt vs. Taya & Johnny Mundo vs. Rhea Ripley & Aleister Black and CREATE Triple H vs. Karrion Kross

Move #3 (by Mad Mike)
SWAP Cameron Grimes for Reckoning
*This move was VETOED by Chad The Shad

Move #3A (by Mad Mike)
DELETE Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kushida vs. Elias vs. Roman Reigns and CREATE Trish Stratus vs. Rhea Ripley

Move #4 (by Chris Taylor)
DELETE Kevin Owens vs. Matt Martel and CREATE Hurt Business vs. New Day vs. Street Profits vs. The Usos

Move #5 (by Alex Kahrs)
DELETE Sasha Banks vs. Meiko Satomura and CREATE Candice LeRae & Johnny Gargano vs. AJ Lee & CM Punk

Round 9 is in the books, and we have FOUR newly created matches on our “undercard”

Brandon’s match did not survive the round. However, because next week is the Patreon In The Bank round, the “Alex Kahrs Rule” is not in effect. Sorry, Brandon.

Patreon In The Bank is the grand finale of Mayhem Mania 2021. ONLY Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show will be invited to play during that round, and somehow they must find a way to get seven more matches onto our SUPER CARD.

If you want to play, head to patreon.com/wrestlingmayhemshow. Your support will help the show and get you in on the fun.

Thanks for enjoying Mayhem Mania!

Mayhem Mania 2016 – Round 9

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 of Mayhem Mania 2016 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show (@MayhemShow) on March 8. 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.

Under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, Eamon Paton was guranteed the final move in Round 9 and also got to hand out a dose of “punishment”. This week, it’s the Wheel Of Nexus.

Also, Eamon still has The ELIMINATOR in his possession. 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 earned this prize by creating a match that graduated to the SUPER CARD. More on that in a bit.

Now, on with the show!

Mayhem Mania 2016 – Round 8

Move 1 (@Bobbyfjtown)
SUBTRACT Kalisto from Shinsuke Nakamura vs. A.J. Styles vs. Kalisto

Move 2 (Antonio Garza – @TheWRevolution)
TRADE The Ascension vs. Gold & Stardust vs. Stephen Amell & Neville for Alberto Del Rio vs. Austin Aries

Move 3 (Stosh from @MaxXouT)
ADD The Rock to Jimmy Uso vs. Roman Reigns vs. Nia Jax vs. Jey Uso

Move 4 (Elliott from @MaxXouT)
ADD Rob Gronkowski to Mojo Rawley vs. Baron Corbin

Move 5 (@Eamon2Please)
(*Forced to spin the Wheel Of Nexus, which landed on Michael Tarver)
TRADE Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady vs. Ronda Rousey & Shane McMahon for Michael Tarver vs. Darren Young

That’s right. Eamon gave this week’s “punishment” to himself. He is a twisted genius when it comes to Mayhem Mania.

Any match that survives 3 rounds in Mayhem Mania without being altered GRADUATES to the SUPER CARD, and I’m happy to report a second match GRADUATED after Round 9.

MAYHEM MANIA 2016 – THE SUPERCARD!

Apollo Crews vs. Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt

Congratulations to Sorgatron. He will back next week to CREATE a new match to fill the open slot on the Mayhem Mania “undercard”. He also becomes the second person to get The ELIMINATOR, which will allow him to banish any person who’s not currently on the card from being used in Mayhem Mania 2016. Here’s the first match that graduated to the SUPERCARD.

Mojo Rawley (with Rob Gronkowski) vs. Baron Corbin
(Elliott from @MaxXouT)
W9M4

OK. So, I wasn’t on hand to host this week’s round of Mayhem Mania. Had I been there, I would’ve been VERY hesitant to allow the use of Rob Gronkowski. I understand other celebrities have been used, and I haven’t spoken against them. Here’s my thinking on this issue. If a celebrity has appeared in the ring on WWE television, I feel it’s appropriate to use that person if it’s inside our general “realm of possibility” rule. That covers Rousey and Amell, but it doesn’t cover Gronkowski.

Also, I got the impression from listening to Elliott that he wants Gronkowski to be in Mojo Rawley’s corner. That’s also something I wouldn’t have allowed. Managers, stipulations, etc. are something I am holding as a special privilege for next week’s Patreon In The Bank round. That said, Elliott was a special guest on the WMS and the referee’s decision is final in professional wrestling, so the move will stand.

As mentioned, next week is Patreon In The Bank. ONLY Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show are invited to play. If you want to get in on this, and help keep the lights on at the Mayhem Studios, head to the WMS Patreon page and find out how cheap and easy it is to support the show and get in on an exclusive opportunity to make bold and numerous changes to the Mayhem Mania card. More tenured Patreon subscribers will get preferential treatment, so the time to act is now!

What changes would you make to the current card? Who needs to be added to the card before it’s too late? Is this year’s card beyond any hope of being saved? Share your feedback with us, and thanks for your support of Mayhem Mania!

As a reward for your loyalty, here is your very own Wheel Of Nexus to play with.

WWE RAW Wrap Up 1/18/16: Royal Rumble Outliers

This week, we talk WWE RAW, consider that if Paul Heyman can’t make Chris Jericho entertaining, Sorg is turning in his Jerichoholic chips.  The New Day hold a funeral for Francesco the Trombone and turn in a great match with a music hating Uso Brother, Becky Lynch delivers a great interaction with Ric Flair and Charlotte in the best (?) Divas build in a bit.  We take a diversion to talk about some of the great promos ( Hard Times, Tear in my Eye, The Beat Goes On…Hogan Heel turn promo), Team NXT failures: Neville, Ascension, and Tyler Breeze, the saddest 8 Man Team, and the Outliers we could see win the Royal Rumble.

This week’s RAW Recappers include Sorg (@sorgatron), Mad Mike (@madmike4883) and Bobbyfjtown (@bobbyfjtown)
