Wrestling Mayhem Show 614: Mayhem Up All Night


We’re LIVE for this week’s Podcast with Billy and women’s wrestler Honey Badger in studio!

  • Shout out to Michael Watson and his TheWrestlers PhotoBook project.  We got our copy!
  • So. Much. Wrestling.  This weekend was RIDICULOUS – in a good way.
  • So…Karaoke at WWE Hall of Fame?
  • We think one of the best parts of the Hall of Fame is the old stories.  But, with all the backstage stuff the WWE Network is doing these days, we get those stories elsewhere.
  • We were super happy to see the return of the Salmon Jacket during Mark Henry’s induction to the Hall of Fame.
  • NXT Takeover set the bar for WrestleMania weekend  and what a bar it was!
  • Sorry ladies for having to follow up that Ladder Match.
  • Gargano v Ciampa was everything we wanted it to be.
  • The IndyIntegration over WrestleMania weekend was good to see!
  • A few people we know took the opportunity to get in front of as many eyes as possible at all the Indy Wrestling shows for WrestleMania weekend – like Dakota Kai who wrestled 6x!
  • Since we talked about Hall of Fame and NXT Takeover, we’re ready for some WrestleMania chat!
  • Thanks to @ReginaHBadger for stating the obvious – the Diva Cup shaped like an actual “Diva Cup.”
  • The Womens Battle Royal trophy was probably the brain child of the same person who thought Great Balls Of Fire would be a good PPV.
  • Charlotte vs Asuka was as amazing as we expected it.
  • Leave it to the Nia Jax win to make our guest @ReginaHBadger cry tears of joy!
  • So….Ronda Rousy…we have mixed thoughts – including some Tilted Kilt references, but kudos to a legit match on the biggest stage at WrestleMania.
  • Spoiler: There are no good guys in UFC.
  • WTH WWE? Nicholas wasn’t even a Make A Wish kid?!?!?
  • Not cool JohnCena.  That spot had to happen at that particular moment?  You couldn’t let the women have their moment?
  • OH: Undertaker looked beautiful – and I’m not talking about the extensions.
  • Elias killed it.
  • RELATED: May have been the only time we were legit pissed at Elias.  HE’S NO UNDERTAKER!
  • MayhemMania is put away until next year.  But, it’s the return of the Big Question!  This week’s question: What makes WrestleMania different from any other wrestling show that WWE does?
  • Why ISN’T WrestleMania considered for an Emmy?
  • Our guest @ReginaHBadger is sharing some thoughts on Intergender matches in WWE.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Mayhem Mania 2018: Patreon In The Bank

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.


Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1 – Week 2 – Week 3 – Week 4 – Week 5 – Week 6 – Week 7 – Week 8

It all comes down to this. After more than two months, Mayhem Mania 2018 has reached its final stop: the epic Patreon In The Bank round! Only Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show were invited to participate and I’m happy to report that we had eight of them take the time to joins us live during Episode 613 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1

Welcome to Week 2 of Mayhem Mania. Last week, we created the eight matches that make up the framework for our card of incredible matches. Now, the real fun begins. On Episode 606 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show, five players were invited to each make a single change to the card. They had 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.

Let’s see how they did. (more…)

Wrestling Mayhem Show 604: Rumble with Elias
