Mayhem Mania 2020: Round 3

This. Is. 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.

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.

We’re entering Round 2 of Mayhem Mania. So, we can finally say that Mayhem Mania is in full swing, right? Is it too soon? Who cares. I’m debating myself. (more…)

Wrestling Mayhem Show 623: Midweek Infinity War

This week’s episode brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Occupy Pro Wrestling, and Indy Wrestling US!
Todd DeFazio of Idiot Radio returns to the show this week.  He is joined by Mad Mike, Mainstream Matt, Larry, and Sorg, as they’re on the heels of Money in the Bank.  This week’s topics include:

  • Reading Rainbow meets Wrestling with Nino Wrestles the World.
  • Sorg may be cashing in MITB on Idiot Radio’s belt.
  • NXT Takeover was this past weekend – a/k/a I’m sorry Sunday night show.
  • Matt likes NXT because it has a happy ending.
  • It was nice to see Daniel Eads make a cameo appearance (and get his butt kicked a little) on NXT Takeover.
  • NXT is like the Bachelor / Bachelorette party to the WWE marriage.
  • Big Cass and WWE are going their separate ways?
  • James Ellsworth returned – the highlight of MITB!
  • So….Rhonda Rousey, guys.
  • WWE is the equivalent of wrestling Walmart.
  • How do you know if you’re in an abusive relationship with wrestling? Asking for a friend.
  • When it Reigns it bores! (Thanks for that one Idiot Radio!)
  • Sorg is thinking that this year’s MITB (men’s match) was solid. It pretty much had everyone expected to be in it, and it wasn’t obvious who was going to win it.
  • Sorg is pitching Rhonda Rousey as the Andre the Giant of the current women’s division.
  • In a time long, long away – in a galaxy far, far away, the UK Tournament is happening in some capacity.
  • Also – We’re getting a NXT UK! Woooo!
  • The New Day took on The Elite for a Street Fighter battle at E3. It was as amazing as we could have ever hoped!
  • If anything happens to Xavier Woods in WWE, he’s got a solid background to be a videogamer.
  • Sorg just did some math. There is 14 hours of new wrestling content – in the US – each week.
  • To clarify, we’re talking Bubba the Bulldog, not Bubba the Love Sponge as an inspiration for Todd.
  • This week’s Big Question: Along the lines of F***/Marry/Kill – If you could hire someone to WWE, fire someone from WWE, and return a WWE alum, who would your picks be?
  • Rusev Day happened to fall on Rey Mysterio Day!
  • We saw the obituary for El Jefe, and we’re talking some Lucha Underground observations.
  • In Lucha Underground we trust!
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?
  • Billed from the back of the Hot Topic, it’s Aleister Black.
  • When you realize of the Enzo / Cass/ Carmella trio that Carmella is the one who’s left behind – with Gold. *Mind Blown*

Wrestling Mayhem Show 615: Nanny Nikki

This week’s episode brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Occupy Pro Wrestling, and Indy Wrestling US!


We have a full studio this week as we’re joined by Mambo Italiano and Calvin Couture of Golden Chic International.  As for the mayhem crew, Mad Mike has returned from WrestleMania, and Sorg and Larry are keeping our guests company in Sorgatron Media studio as we talk about:

  • Mad Mike is getting us all caught up on his visit to WrestleMania. WMS
  • If Mambo Italiano is The Miz, does that make Calvin Couture the Miztourage?
  • What do you get when you have some former WWE stars at a local high school? IWC Wrestling Night of the Superstars! (So we’re going to take a moment to talk about some great moments from the show.)
  • Mambo Italiano appreciated some quality time with Mark Henry, while Calvin Couture had a moment with Jack Swagger at Night of the Superstars.

  • Mad Mike is suffering from some TNA PTSD with this Superstar Shakeup.
  • Is Jeff Hardy angling for a Hell in a Cell spot?
  • It would be more efficient to let us know who’s staying where during the Superstar Shakeup.
  • Dear WWE – Give us visuals on this Superstar Shakeup and tournaments. The NCAA does well with March Madness for a reason. ;)
  • Now we’re on to the big news in WWE this week – the John Cena and Nikki Bella break-up.
  • Thanks to Mikey and Big Bob for giving us the perfect emotional response to the Nikki Bella and John Cena break-up.
  • The Miz and Maryse played the long-game in their feud against Nikki Bella and John Cena.

  • We’ve found Brock Lesnar’s weakness – pancakes.

  • We’re talking a little bit of IMPACT.
  • Mad Mike loves him some Brian Cage.
  • The key is to have creativity with just the right amount of a leash from management.
  • Part of the problem with non-WWE wrestling today is getting yourself out there for your audience to find you.
  • This week’s Big Question: Now that John Cena and Nikki Bella’s engagement is officially off, who will be the rebound?
  • When Carson Daly becomes relevant during a wrestling discussion.
  • Mambo Italiano had a moment with Honky Tonk Man a month(ish) ago.
  • 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 crossing the wrestling streams because of NJPW, WWE, and IMPACT happenings and shuffles.
  • 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.)
