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!

Wrestling Mayhem Show 652: Babyface Batista

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

Marcus Mann joins the mayhem this week, which means it’s likely we’ll be talking very little wrestling and a bunch of John Cena.  Thankfully we have Larry, Matt, Rizz, Mad Mike, and Sorg to keep the show rolling as we discuss:

  • We have Marcus Mann on the show – the guy who hasn’t watched wrestling since September?

  • Marcus Mann is sharing some thoughts on Brock Lesnar and Brock-being-Brock.
  • Anytime Marcus Mann watches a wrestling match, he has some psychology assessments thanks to Shirley Doe.

  • Liking our discussion about intergender wrestling? Join us for our panel.
  • Randy Orton walks a line all the time.
  • This is the time in the show when Marcus Mann tells us how amazing John Cena is.
  • Marcus Mann is not a fan of skinny Cena.
  • With Patreon in the Bank looming, we’re looking to see if Marcus Mann can book a MayhemMania match WITHOUT John Cena (if someone uses an eliminator).
  • It’s MayhemMania time. We can’t wait to see what our crew books this week!
  • 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.

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!
