Mayhem Mania 2019: Round 2

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.


For those of you who are just joining us, here’s where you can catch up on Mayhem Mania 2019: Opening Round – Round 1

Round 2 of Mayhem Mania 2019 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show on Tuesday, February 5. 5 people were invited to each make a single change to our existing card of 8 matches. Here’s how it went down. (more…)

Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 4

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.

Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1 – Week 2 – Week 3

Before we get into what’s happened, I must mention what’s coming next. We’ll be doing a special Viewer’s Choice move in our next round and instead of using fate to randomly choose which of your moves to use, we’ll be adding some skill into the mix with the ELIMINATION CHAMBER CHALLENGE!

Here’ how it works: When you send in your move, also give us your prediction for who will win Sunday’s men’s Elimination Chamber match and total time for the match (the tiebreaker will be decided by whoever came the closest without going over). We’ll reward the correct prediction by using your move in next week’s round. What a deal!

We had two players back for Week 4 of Mayhem Mania 2018 under the “Alex Kahrs Rule”, Kyle Turner andBobbyfjtown. All of our players can each make a single change to the card. They have 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.

Here’s how things shook out on Episode 608 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

 Mayhem Mania 2018

Move 1: Kyle Turner
KILL Bart Gunn vs. Butterbean and CREATE AJ Styles vs. Roderick Strong vs. Adam Cole

Mayhem Mania 2017: Round 4

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.

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.

Which one will be next? (more…)
