Six Times When Mayhem Mania Got Real

Can you believe we’re about to enjoy the fifth year of Mayhem Mania? Our little competitive thought experiment started out as just an idea. Over the years, it’s grown into a tradition on the Wrestling Mayhem Show. There have been a lot of matches created over the years – some more plausible than others. Among them are a select few that later happened in real life. Here are six of the most notable. To be clear, we’re only looking at matches that graduated to a Mayhem Mania SUPERCARD. (more…)

Wrestling Mayhem Show 627: 10…9…8…

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

Rob Johnston joins us to talk about some Dojo Pro wrestling. He, of course, is joined by our usual stable of ne’er-do-wells including Sorg, Dave Podnar, and Alex Kahrs as they talk this week in wrestling, including:WMS 7.17.2018

  • That’s right, we’ve kidnapped Rob Johnston from the AwesomeCast podcast so we can talk Dojo Pro (among other things).
  • Extreme Rules was in Pittsburgh, and we are once again reminded why we can’t have nice things.
  • Sorg was so close at Extreme Rules that he almost took a pancake to the face.
  • Dave heard Steelers chants come through the TV feed for Extreme Rules. Sorg recalls no such chants. Were they piped in? Hmmm.
  • Things we are thankful for – The Roman Reigns v Bobby Lashley match didn’t follow the Iron Man Match at Extreme Rules.
  • We didn’t see Elias in his hometown for Extreme Rules – despite the obvious Pittsburgh references throughout.
  • Sorg is sad he didn’t get an awesome Shinsuke v Jeff Hardy match.
  • THE CROWD GOT KICKED IN THE BALLS BY SHINSUKE!
  • Rob can FEEL the wrestling in Nashville.
  • We’re taking a few moments to remember Bruno Sammartino and the history of wrestling.
  • Speaking of our guest, Rob, it was great seeing him being pushed around in the ring on a Dojo Pro video on Facebook.
  • Rob Johnston is talking about some of the fun with Dojo Pro.
  • The biggest message from Rob Johnston – Dojo Pro is bingeable!
  • Rob has some thoughts on Joey Janela.
  • It’s convenient that we’re talking with Rob Johnston on THIS episode.
  • Rob had a chance to speak with Hulk Hogan a few years back.
  • Hulk Hogan is not the same as Terry Bollea. It’s important to make separations between characters and people.
  • Some heels get crap from fans for being heels, then Kevin Owens gets the spotlight at a Shania Twain concert.
  • This week’s Big Question: Which wrestling superstar needs to release an album next?
  • Mad Mike couldn’t be here this week – so he sent a Mad Mike Mail!
  • eFeds are a thing Alex Kahrs is explaining to us.
  • Sorg is headed to the Gathering of the Juggalos, and he’ll be seeing some interesting wrestling.
  • Joey Janela is apparently facing John Cena at the Gathering of the Juggalos.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

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*

Remember that poster we were giving away?  We took our list of Patreon supporters, booted up WWE 2K16, and let the bots settle it out.  Congratulations to Bradley for winning the Skyscraper poster! Want to catch the Patreon bot fight we used to determine the winner? See it here.

Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 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.


 

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 588: World’s Strongest Soccer Mom

The Locked ‘n Loaded best-dressed guest ante has been accepted and upped.  This week, we’ve got IWC rookie Calvin Couture in studio, and he brought his A-game, replete with his bow tie and sequinned jacket.  He outshines, almost literally, our crew of Sorg, Chad the Shad, Mutilator Larry, and Bobby F J-Town as we talk this week in wrestling:

  • There’s a WWE pay-per-view this weekend! (And, we’re going to play some video games.)
  • So John Cena and Roman Reigns?
  • What was with Roman Reigns pulling out Rock v John Cena promos?
  • Chad is sharing some thoughts about how good WWE teams are these days.
  • When’s the last time we saw a rivalry for something other than a belt?
  • Are we setting up a Wyatt Family v Club feud?
  • Putting it here so it’s in writing: Someone just threw out Goldust as Finn Balor’s dad.
  • Are we going to see an Emma win?
  • Apparently WWE broke Jordan and Gable up too soon. Why?!?!
  • We need some Surf Dudes With Attitudes in WWE.
  • Starcade is happening?
  • Is there a chance we’ll see Cody Rhodes and Dustin Rhodes team up for Starcade?
  • Speaking of Starcade, WrestleCade is also in North Carolina the same weekend?
  • NXT should takeover the old WCW and ECW pay-per-view titles.
  • Crack beers like Stone Cold in Point State Park is an actual event here in Pittsburgh!
  • Sorg is stuck on TNA like a fly on a bug zapper. He just can’t turn away.
  • This week’s Big Question: Who would make a good 2017 addition to the Heenan family?
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?
