Mayhem Mania 2021: Round 3

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 – Opening Round
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 1
Mayhem Mania 2021 – Round 2

Not every WWE wrestler is eligible to use. Under the rules of Mayhem Mania, everyone comes in their current physical, emotional and contractual state. That means anyone out with an injury is NOT eligible to use. (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.)

Others are not eligible to use for a different reason. Some of them are locked in SPACE JAIL.

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

SPACE JAIL is not a life sentence. A lucky spin of our prize wheel can free one of them, and that’s exactly what happened before Round 3. The prize wheel freed Ric Flair.

There’s no “double jeopardy” so anyone who escapes can not be locked up again during Mayhem Mania 2021.

5 players were invited onto the Wrestling Mayhem Show for Round 2 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
– 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, let’s take a look at the changes made during Round THREE of Mayhem Mania 2021!

Move #1 (by Sorgatron)
DELETE Walter vs. Goldberg and CREATE Elias & Drew McIntyre & Jinder Mahal vs. Damien Priest & Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch

Move #2 (by Bobbyfjtown)
DELETE Bray Wyatt & Alexa Bliss vs. Daniel Bryan & Nikki Cross and CREATE Io Shirai vs. Rey Mysterio

Move #3 (by Alex Kahrs)
ADD Roman Reigns to Keith Lee vs. Pete Dunne

Move #4 (by “The Rev” Ron Hunt)
SWAP Samoa Joe and Finn Balor

Move #5 (by Dave Podnar)
DELETE Xavier Woods & AJ Styles & Kofi Kingston vs. Tyler Breeze & Adam Cole & Cesaro and CREATE Mercedes Martinez vs. Sasha Banks

With Round 3 in the books, we now have SIX new matches on our card.

Elias & Drew McIntyre & Jinder Mahal vs. Damien Priest & Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch
(Created by Sorgatron)
(*Designated as “cinematic match”)

Io Shirai vs. Rey Mysterio
(Created by Bobbyfjtown)

Mercedes Martinez vs. Sasha Banks
(Created by Dave Podnar)

Samoa Joe vs. Karrion Kross vs. Aleister Black
(Created by “The Rev” Ron Hunt)

Keith Lee vs. Pete Dunne vs. Roman Reigns
(Created by Alex Kahrs)

Finn Balor vs. Kyle O’Reilly vs. Timothy Thatcher vs. Ilja Dragunov
(Created by “The Rev” Ron Hunt)

Here are the two matches that survived Round 3 without being changed.

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

The IIconics vs. Riott Squad
(Created by Mad Mike)

If a match survives THREE rounds without being altered in any way, it will GRADUATE to our SUPERCARD. The creator of the match will receive rewards, including creating a new match to fill the open slot on our “undercard”. Our goal is to GRADUATE eight matches to our SUPERCARD by the time Mayhem Mania 2021 comes to an end.

One final note: Following Round 3 Mad Mike used one of the SPACE JAIL tickets he earned in our Royal Rumble contest to send Austin Theory to SPACE JAIL.

What will happen next? The only way to find out is to keep following Mayhem Mania 2021!

2021: Round 1 – From A Chore To A Hobby: Making Cooking Fun

Cooking Guide

Many people tend to be too busy with their daily life activities. This is why they tend to run away from cooking. I mean, when you have a demanding job in spite of the fact that you are working from home and children’s busy schedules, cooking will definitely slide down your list of priorities. It could be worse even if you are single or live alone because you could be content with getting some processed or fast food. Shifting one’s perception about working with food and creating a meal alone may not appeal to everyone because some people do not just like going to the kitchen. So how about including striking features in your kitchen to make you want to go there. Let’s see some tips on making cooking fun.

Create an inviting aura in your kitchen

This can help a great deal but it could be quite subjective to say the least. What may appear to be singularly uplifting for someone may not make another get motivated to go to the kitchen. However, there are some common features that appeal to the majority of people. It is all about creating a warm environment that makes you feel excited about going to cook. For example, you can make the surroundings cozy with some plants in vases. There may be a problem here with a lack of sunlight which is supposed to help the plants grow. LED grow lights could prove useful here. They won’t only be assisting with the growth of the plants but also help beautify the surroundings.

Introduce some soft music to enliven the proceedings

If you are the type that loves to listen to music almost every free time, why not take the music to your kitchen. You could put a small mobile Bluetooth speaker in your kitchen and play your choices of music and dance to them while waiting for some simmering or something to get fried. Music has a way of motivating the soul. It lifts one’s spirit and gets you up and about things you didn’t have the motivation to delve into earlier. 

Music is the Food of the Soul

After all, it is not for nothing that music is called the ‘food of the soul.’ This is why it is such a great idea to nourish your soul even as you whip up culinary delights to nourish your body as well.  You don’t have to dance to the groove while tossing stuff in the pan, but there is no harm in enjoying a little humming and tapping while your food is cooking, So you can try it today and see how things get for you. With a little experimentation, you too will learn to enjoy the beat and the tasty dishes you whip up. 

Have friends over to cook with you

It may sound like too many cooks spoiling the broth but when you are not in the mood to do something, there is the option of doing it with friends around so you can be better motivated. There is another catch here, you can learn some kitchen skills from any one of them who loves cooking and is very good at it. Apart from the fact things get done faster, there is better bonding with your friends and there could never be any dull moment with this arrangement.  There are plenty of recipes that you can try out and cook as a group. This will definitely get you a step closer to making cooking a hobby. 

Cook for and with your partner

You can also give it a shot with your partner. Cooking for each other is probably one of the most romantic things you can do. Add to that the fun of participating in such a wholesome activity. You can try to compete with each other to see who has the best taste for the sublime. It does not matter who cooks what. You will both come out as winners. Especially when the goal is the same. I.e. To please each other by making the best dish possible. Check out the best Charcuterie Boards.

Always make allowances for mistakes

One of the reasons why people get less motivated is because they feel it has been a long time since they cooked and so their cooking skills may have become very rusty. It will be a feeling of why cook when it will probably taste horrible? Well, you won’t be able to find out if you don’t try, would you? You have to give room for mistakes like the food not being well seasoned, getting your food burnt, or forgetting to add seasoning at all. It is okay to make mistakes and it should encourage you to try again. With more trials, you will get to perfection. You have to remember that there was never any handbook of cooking in the beginning. The different meals that are known today around the world were eventual products of many trials and errors until the most tasteful edition came about. 

 Reasons why it’s important to hire a professional event photographer

Updated: Aug 15, 2020

You spend weeks or even months of your time to prepare for your event. When the big day is finally there, time flies by at lightning speed. Before you know, the event has already ended and you can look back at a successful day. It would be great to be able to look back at your event in a visual way; seeing the crew work as hard as they can, seeing smiles on the faces of your visitors, seeing the speakers excel. Luckily this is possible when you hire a professional event photographer. If that hasn’t convinced you, here are some other reasons why you should hire an event photographer.

1. A professional event photographer has the right gear

A professional photographer owns the right camera and the right lenses to capture every moment perfectly. With the right gear you can create good photos in both light and dark environments. Besides owning the right gear, a professional event photographer has the knowledge to use the settings on a professional camera in the best way to get the best photos possible.

2. A professional event photographer delivers good quality photos

Everyone with a smartphone can take a photo on every moment of the day. But what is the difference of the quality of a photo taken with a smart phone compared to a professional photo? The quality difference is huge. A professional event photographer can capture every important moment at the highest quality. Do you want to use the photos to be printed on a big banner or poster? No problem, they’re big enough.

3. His profession is based on creating a good reputation as a professional event photographer

A professional photographer makes a living out of his photography, so it’s really important that he or she retains a good reputation. One unsatisfied customer can lead to bad word of mouth publicity and can cost future photography jobs. That is why a professional photographer is always eager to deliver their best work at every single job. This will lead to good reviews and eventually will lead to more work. Visit prostockmaster.

4. A professional has the right experience in photographing events

If you’re working with a professional event photographer, you’ll know he/she has the right experience to help you creating memories of your event that will last for a lifetime. An experienced photographer knows what to do, what is expected from him/her and knows how to behave on an event.

5. An event photographer can focus on your event, while you can focus on your guests.

If you have agreed to do business with each other and have discussed all the necessary things, you can take care of the most important thing: making sure the event goes as planned. With a professional photographer, you don’t have to worry about the visual aspect anymore, because you’ll know everything will be taken care of.

Mayhem Mania 2020: It Begins

Welcome back to year six of Mayhem Mania!

This is the ultimate fantasy booking game. The goal is to create the best WrestleMania card possible – not necessarily to predict what WWE will do. That means we must play by the rules of our current reality. Everyone comes in their current (physical, emotional, psychological, etc.) state. Bottom line, if Vince McMahon can do it, we can do it.

The WWE’s talent pool has never been deeper. Combine that with the other talents on the fringes that they theoretically may have access to and there’s no excuse for them not putting together the greatest WrestleMania card of all time. We’re going to show what’s possible.

Our game began during the Wrestling Mayhem Show on Tuesday, January 21. Eight players were invited to each create a single match. As an added layer to this year’s game, we’re asking more people to eliminate names from being eligible to use in Mayhem Mania – sending them through the Forbidden Portal into Space Jail. But there’s a catch, unlike in previous years, this may not be a permanent. Each week a random spin of our newly acquired prize wheel will determine if one of them can escape from Space Jail and re-enter the game. No “double jeopardy”. Once someone escapes from Space Jail, they can’t be sent back.

So, let’s check out the 8 matches our crew created.

Match #1
(Created by BobbyFJtown)
Finn Balor vs. Bray Wyatt
week1-1

Match #2
(Created by Ronnie Starks)
#DIY vs. Time Splitters
week1-8
Match #3
(Created by Sorgatron)
Elias vs. Tony Nese
week1-2

Match #4
(Created by Honey Badger)
Rhea Ripley vs. Mercedes Martinez

week1-5

Match #5
(Created by Dave Podnar)
Velveteen Dream vs. R-Truth
week1-4

Match #6
(Created by Tina Keys)
Mia Yim & Kay Lee Ray & Tegan Nox vs. Asuka & Kairi Sane & Io Shirai
week1-7

Match #7
(Created by Mad Mike)
WALTER vs. Keith Lee
week1-3

Match #8
(Created by Mainstream Mat)
Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong vs. Shayna Baszler & Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir
week1-6

And here’s who got sent to Space Jail…

SPACE JAIL!
BobbyFJtown: Randy Orton
Ronnie Starks: Enzo
Sorgatron: Lacey Evans
Honey Badger: Bayley
Dave Podnar: Triple H
Tina Keys: Ronda Rousey
Mad Mike: WeeLC
Mainstream Mat: Bobby Fish

So, Mayhem Mania 2020 is underway. We have an eight-match card and we have eight people/things now serving time in Space Jail. Next Tuesday, we’ll invite five players to each make a single change to the existing card. Remember, any match that survives three consecutive rounds without being altered in any way will graduate to the Mayhem Mania SUPERCARD. The creator of that match will get some rewards and we’ll create a new match to take its place on our “undercard”.

By the time this whole thing is over, we’ll have eight graduated matches on our SUPERCARD. Trust me, it’ll work. We’ve already done this five time, and we haven’t failed yet.

Which of our eight matches do you like the best? Which ones do you think need some work? Which ones need to be dumped entirely. Post a comment or hit up the Wrestling Mayhem Show on social media to share your thoughts.

Before we go, we want to mention our Royal Rumble Challenge. Email your picks for the winners of both Rumble matches to [email protected] Each correct pick will earn you a ticket to send someone through the Forbidden Portal to Space Jail. So, if you get both picks right, you’ll get to send two people to Space Jail! What a deal!

Enjoy Mayhem Mania and we’ll see you next week!

Who’s Ready For Asuka? We Did The Math!

The impending arrival of Asuka, and her undefeated streak in WWE, looms like a shadow over Monday Night Raw’s women’s division.

How will things play out after her official debut on WWE’s main roster? We’ll begin to find out at TLC on October 22.

That leaves us with plenty of time to speculate on potential matches. Asuka laid waste to NXT’s women’s division and many in NXT and on WWE’s main roster now have the won-loss records to prove it. (more…)
