Wrestling Mayhem Show 650: The Return Of MayhemMania

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

It’s that magical time of year when we put ourselves in Vince McMahon’s shoes for MayhemMania.  We’ve got Mad Mike, Larry, Farnsworth, Sorg, and Mainstream Matt in studio to talk about:

  • We’re preparing for NXT to see some roster changes due to some call-ups.
  • 205 Live has a new broadcast member in Aiden English.
  • We are headed into the royalest of rumbles with men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches.
  • We’re running down all of the places where you can find John Cena (or his voice). He’s everywhere!
  • We are relying on Sasha Banks to save what could otherwise be a meh match with Ronda Rousey to make it amazing.
  • Ronda Rousey should be in NXT learning the ropes. She’s doing okay where she is – but she’d be better if she were going through and learning the ropes.
  • We’re blaming Smashmouth for so many things tonight.
  • We’re talking some Hardcore Holly and Brock Lesnar.
  • Are we comparing Finn Balor to Hardcore Holly? Maybe.
  • We’re running through our dark horse options for the Royal Rumble.
  • It’s MayhemMania season – which means we’re booking our dream matches.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Wrestling Mayhem Show 613: The Haunted Ovaries of Mae Young

This week’s episode is brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Occupy Pro Wrestling, and Indy Wrestling US.

It’s the last Tuesday before WrestleMania, which can only mean one thing…PATREON IN THE BANK!  And, it’s a full house for the occasion.  In addition to being joined by a special guest, Todd DeFazio of Idiot Radio, we’ve got Bobby, Billy F’n Johnson, Larry, Sorg, and Mad Mike talking about:

  • We attended RAW and Smackdown last week (which meant no live show on Podcast Day) so we’re running through our brief thoughts heading into WrestleMania.
  • We’re talking some NXT Takeover as we head into WrestleMania!
  • Is John Cena emoting the same feeling as being turned down at the high school dance or a kid throwing a tantrum? ARE WE SEEING A HEEL TURN ON THE HORIZON?
  • It’s astounding the number of WWE guys without contracts around WrestleMania time…
  • Anyone else notice The Miz’ post-baby glow?
  • Is there a WrestleMania match that’s booked that you can do without?
  • With all the matches booked for WrestleMania, we’re talking about which ones we see winding up as the main event.
  • More Brain Strowman please!
  • It’s officially MayhemMania time. Since it’s the last show before WrestleMania it’s time for Patreon in the Bank!
  • We are eliminating the hell out of Randy Orton in this segment of MayhemMania.
  • Apparently there’s not enough carnage on our MayhemMania card?
  • AJ may have just booked a MayhemMania match with a Hair vs Hair match of RAW v Smackdown women.
  • Matt has a MayhemMania list of cast-offs in a Cleveland cup. It seems so appropriate as our punishment options.
  • We’ve had so many changes to the MayhemMania card that we need to have a refresher halfway through to clarify what we’ve even booked.
  • Billy is using his god-like power as a Pizza Club Patreon supporter to blow this MayhemMania card up.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Thanks to Tonio Garza (@TheWRevolution) for putting together graphics for MayhemMania.

Heading to WrestleMania?  If you see a Mayhemmer, say hi!  If that Mayhemmer’s Mad Mike, give him a chop and send us a pic or video clip.  We’ll include it on next week’s show!

Wrestling Mayhem Show 612: A Wrestling Episode of Scooby Doo

This week’s episode is brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Occupy Pro Wrestling, and Indy Wrestling US.

WWE may have infiltrated our local wrestling scene this past weekend, which can only mean we’ve got some great content from indy wrestling that’s still very relevant to this show!  Even better – we’ve got Farnsworth joining us on the big purple couch to add his thoughts to the mix.  As usual, he’s joined by our usual cast of characters as we’ve got Sorg and Larry in studio with Bobby F J-Town and Rizz on live via the internets!

  • We collectively learned in wrestling this week that the Honky Tonk Man sings at live shows.
  • Daniel Bryan has been cleared for action – just in time for Mayhem Mania. (And, we have differing views on this week’s show.)
  • The Ultimate DELETION (finally) happened on RAW!
  • The Ultimate DELETION wasn’t shown on the Hulu cut? Or in the arena at RAW?
  • Bobby had a James Ellsworth experience this past weekend.
  • Did James Ellsworth spoil Ultimate DELETION for Bobby?
  • It’s time for MayhemMania!
  • Farnsworth is wearing a Dragonball Z design of the Neon Blondes shirt options with Facade and Dani Mo for this week’s show!
  • Friend of the Show Chris LeRusso has some points on the Daniel Bryan return to the ring.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

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 www.indywrestling.us
  • 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 https://www.patreon.com/wrestlingmayhemshow
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Wrestling Mayhem Show 610: Lucha On Ice


We’ve got a super special treat as we’re joined by Chris DeJoseph, Co-Executive Producer of Lucha Underground!  As far as our usual host of mayhemmers, we’ve got Sorg, Chad, Larry, Mainstream Matt, Mad Mike, and Bobby F J-Town talking about:

  • Chris DeJoseph is coming to us FROM the new Lucha Underground temple.
  • There are some growing pains with Lucha Underground moving to a new temple.
  • What we’ve learned so far from Chris DeJoseph: Spare no expense when it comes to porta-potties.
  • Because we’ve got Chris DeJoseph on the line with us, we’re asking for a Lucha Underground and Big Brother mash-up.
  • There’s a combined Lucha Underground and IMPACT Wrestling show WrestleMania weekend.
  • We never know who’s going to pop up when we’re live streaming with Chris DeJoseph – like Drago.
  • We’re putting it out there: Who from Lucha Underground do you want to see make coffee in their underwear with RJ City?
  • Another very important question about the new Lucha Underground location: We’re learning where the best place(s) to eat are.
  • Building new temples is hard, yo.
  • A new temple gives Lucha Underground new, crazy things to think of!
  • It’s time – FOR MAYHEMMANIA with our special guest Chris DeJoseph.
  • Mad Mike may have figured out the path for John Cena to get to WrestleMania with his first MayhemMania match-up of the night.
  • Did Mad Mike dole out his MayhemMania punishment to our guest Chris DeJoseph?!?!?
  • Did we book Asuka v Brock Lesnar on MayhemMania?
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

  • Beast Man is sharing his thoughts on Braun Strowman and WrestleMania.
