Mayhem Mania 2019: Round 8

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. (more…)

Wrestling Mayhem Show 649: Lurking Lars

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

We’ve got a full couch this week as Joe Dombrowski, Rizz, and Larry join Sorg in studio with Mad Mike tuning in through that magical thing called the internet.  There are lots of things to talk about this week, like:

  • We’re seeing some new faces on WWE main shows.
  • Rizz is making some predictions about where we may see things headed with WWE now that we’ve seen some call-ups.
  • Joe is sharing his thoughts about the WWE main roster call-ups.
  • Is WWE making assumptions that main roster fans are already familiar with NXT talent when they do call-ups?
  • The women’s tag team titles announcement had an interesting reveal since it’s a unified title across brands and not separate titles for each brand.
  • We’re taking a bit of a deep-dive into the women’s wrestling changes that are happening.
  • We’re talking some NXT UK Takeover Blackpool!
  • Apparently the UK audience addresses wrestling a little differently than US audiences. (What’s with the shoes?)
  • Joe is sharing some of his UK insights with us.
  • Sooo…Walter made his WWE debut.
  • Is WWE taking a page from history and creating their own territories? Instead of competitive markets, they’ll be cooperative?
  • This week’s Big Question: What region would you like to see WWE expand to next?
  • The WWE Performance Center has a YouTube channel, and they release some pretty cool stuff – like the Ray Rowe and Sarah Logan wedding video!
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Wrestling Mayhem Show 605: The Return of Mayhem Mania

It’s a full house this week as we’ve got Sorg, Larry, Bobby, Mad Mike, Billy, and Mainstream Matt in studio. As a special treat, comedian Jaye Cooper joins us as we kick off Mayhem Mania! This week’s show is packed. We’re a few days removed from NXT Takeover, the Royal Rumble, and a host of other wrestling shows over the weekend – which means we have a TON to talk about:WMS

  • The worst thing for Sorg – when he can’t recognize local wrestlers in their street clothes.
  • So much rumbling happened this weekend! We’re giving our thoughts.
  • Royal Rumble appearance of Rey Mysterio confused us after watching the last season of Lucha Underground.
  • We have mixed reviews of the return of The Hurricane from Royal Rumble.

  • We’re fans of all kinds of wrestling.
  • OH: I met him one time at a funeral…
  • Welcome to Wrestle Kingdom two years ago WWE fans.
  • The Women’s Rumble exceeded many of our expectations.
  • Sorg wants a Total Taker show with Undertaker and Michelle McCool.
  • We’re following the #JacobsForMayor campaign, because Kane.
  • Royal Rumble had matches other than rumbly things. Things happened.
  • Braun Strowman teaching Alexa Bliss how to flip a car is the best thing ever.
  • Mad Mike was in the same building as Ray Rowe, Ricochet, and EC3 this weekend.
  • We’re rebranding Ricochet as Rick O’Shea so he can keep his name.
  • Mad Mike and Larry are teaming up to take on War Machine for the Tag Titles.
  • We’re talking some NXT Takeover and Johnny Wrestling.
  • We’re talking some Kassius Ohno options with NXT.
  • Holy $#!% Adam Cole match at NXTTakeover.
  • As big a night Royal Rumble was for Japan, NXT Takeover was just as big for Cleveland.
  • This week’s Big Question: Who left from IMPACT Wrestling do you want to see pop up in WWE?
  • It’s Mayhem Mania time!
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?
  • We learned collaboratively that Jaye Cooper thinks he can take on Ray Rowe. (For the record – we vehemently disagree.)
