Mayhem Mania 2022: Week 2

This. Is. Mayhem Mania!

It’s not just the ultimate fantasy booking challenge. It’s also a competitive thought experiment!

The object of Mayhem Mania is to craft the best WrestleMania card possible within the boundaries of our current reality. That means anyone WWE can book in a match is available to our players.

But this year, there’s a twist! Mayhem Mania 2022 is a two-night event! Night 1 will be the night for our traditional Mayhem Mania card featuring WWE-related matches. But on Night 2, we open the “forbidden door” and make it possible for our players to create matches with anyone outside of WWE.

In the opening round of Mayhem Mania, our players created six matches for both our Night 1 and Night 2 cards. Now, the real fun begins. Every week, more players will arrive on the scene and make a change to one of the matches.

They can:
– KILL a match entirely and CREATE a new one with other individuals
– SWAP out an individual or team in a match for another individual or team
– SWAP out an individual or team in a match with an individual or team in another match already on the card
– ADD an individual or team to an existing match

Not everyone is currently eligible to be used in Mayhem Mania. Some are being held in a place we lovingly refer to as SPACE JAIL. Here’s the current inmate count:

  • Asuka
  • Avery Good
  • Cassie Lee
  • Commander Sterling
  • Jessie McKay
  • Miro
  • Penta El Zero Miedo
  • Rey Fenix
  • Sonny Kiss
  • Ultra Mantis Black
  • Will Ospreay
  • Ziggy Haim

Five players were on hand for last Tuesday’s Wrestling Mayhem Show. Let’s see what changes they made!

Move #1 (by Sorgatron)
SWAP Randy Orton for Elias

Move #2 (by Tina Keys)
KILL Adam Scherr vs. Jonathan Gresham and
CREATE Shane Strickland vs. Lee Moriarty

Move #3 (by Beastman)
SWAP The Fiend for Swoggle and Scott D’Amore and Ric Flair and “Stone Cold” Shark Boy and The Great Khali and Naked Mideon

Move #4 (by Mad Mike)
KILL The Wolves vs. reDRagon and
CREATE David Arquette vs. Danhausen

Move #5 (by Ronnie Starks)
ADD Jordynne Grace & Jonathan Gresham to Dr. Britt Baker & Adam Cole vs. AJ Lee & CM Punk

Move #6 (by Sorgatron)
ADD Lady Frost & Victor Benjamin to Jordynne Grace & Jonathan Gresham vs. Dr. Britt Baker & Adam Cole vs. AJ Lee & CM Punk

So, with the moves from Week 2 of Mayhem Mania now in the books, let’s take a look at what our cards look like.

Night 1 (WWE) has ONE newly created match.
