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.
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.

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.

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!
