  • Randy Orton walks a line all the time.
  • This is the time in the show when Marcus Mann tells us how amazing John Cena is.
  • Marcus Mann is not a fan of skinny Cena.

Wrestling Mayhem Show 611: Deep Into MayhemMania Season

We couldn’t have planned this week’s in-studio guest any better if we tried.  Marcus Mann joins us on the big purple couch to talk about the road to WrestleMania!  He’s joined by Rob, Larry, Sorg, Mad Mike, and Mainstream Matt as they talk about:

  • We’ve got the RYSE Wrestling Head of Talent Relations, Marcus Mann, on the sofa this week!
  • Sorg was in Florida over the weekend, and had a chance to visit the Hulk Hogan shop down there.
  • Marcus Mann is sharing some updates about what they’re up to down at RYSE Wrestling. Want to check it out? Head over to
  • We’ll be getting to some Fastlane and WrestleMania talk shortly. But first – John Cena has a Road to WrestleMania and Marcus couldn’t be happier.
  • John Cena broke RAW.
  • We’re breaking down an interesting comparison between John Cena, Hulk Hogan, and Chris Jericho.
  • It’s the wrestler’s responsibility to take that #1 spot. If someone isn’t taking that spot, then it really belongs to the guy at the top. (In this case John Cena.)
  • Vince McMahon will not give anyone a Jr. suffix because he feels it is demeaning.
  • Sorg apparently ran into Paige at an ICP show last week?
  • Fastlane happened this weekend, and we’ve got a clearer picture about what we’ll be seeing at WrestleMania.
  • We found out Marcus Mann is apparently a huge Brock Lesnar fan, in addition to being a John Cena fan…and a Chris Jericho fan…
  • We’re taking a trip down memory lane…to Summer Slam 2002.
  • You think Brock Lesnar could kill a person – watch him punch Braun Strowman in the face. He’s the closest thing we can get to a Bruiser Brody.
  • Are we setting ourselves up for disappointment by setting our expectations too high for WrestleMania?
  • Thanks to The Bar we can no longer take discussions regarding setting the bar seriously.
  • When ranking WrestleMania events, which one is the “average” by which you should set your expectations by?
  • It’s time for MayhemMania! Let’s see what havoc we can wreak 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
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Wrestling Mayhem Show 599: Earth 2 Daniel Bryan

Marcus Mann can’t seem to get enough of the mayhem.  He made the trek back to the studio to join Sorg, Bobby F J-Town and Mad Mike for this week’s episode.  We had a lot to chat about, including:

  • 205 Live is going to do house shows starting in January?
  • On paper 205 Live is the best indy show ever. We need to see how it is in reality.
  • Marcus Mann is educating us on the difference of a 205 Live show on TV versus live and how much better high flyers are live.
  • Someone may have just compared Enzo to Eddie Guerrero.
  • Marcus Mann is educating Sorg on Noam Dar and wrestling outside the US.
  • We’re reminiscing on that time when Rizz interviewed Pete Dunne.
  • Just because we’re not seeing people from CWC and Mae Young Classic popping up yet doesn’t mean WWE lost their numbers. Just wait.
  • Did you see DJ Z at a show – – – in a library?
  • Jim Johnston was released from the WWE. We’re sharing some thoughts.
  • Since we’ve got Marcus Mann on the sofa, we’re talking about the recent RYSE anniversary show.
  • A Power Point presentation is over on 205 Live.
  • This week’s Big Question: Which superstar had the best potential and would have been a bigger WWE star if Vince McMahon hadn’t gotten in the way?
  • The one that got away – that don’t know they got away.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?
