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

It’s that time of year when we reminisce on what has happened throughout the course of wrestling.  Mad Mike, Sorg, and Larry take a trip through old show notes to pull up last year’s predictions, and we make some bold predictions heading into 2019:

  • It’s the end of the year, which means we’re running through last year’s WWE predictions.
  • Mad Mike is rewriting Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for the RAW women’s match.
  • We’re running through our 2018 predictions for our show!
  • This week’s Big Question: What gift would you like Wrestling Santa to bring you?
  • Sorg checked out Rockstar Pro for their live stream with IMPACT at Ohio vs Everyone. He shares some thoughts about the show.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this year?

Speaking of predictions, here’s what we expect for the big wrestling shows in 2019:

  • Mad Mike:
  1. Brock Lesnar will be UFC and WWE champion.
  2. Pentagon will be NXT Champion.
  3. Sometime during 2019 we will see the match between David Arquette and Steven Amell.

  1. WWE will not go back to the Middle East, but will do a supershow in another country.
  2. The Elite (All In) promotion will not have television, but will still be an ROH competitor by the end of 2019.
  3. The Elite (All In) promotion will be part of the WWE Network.
  • Larry:
  1. Ronda Rousey will not be with WWE throughout 2019.
  2. The Elite (All In) promotion is BS and they will be part of WWE.

  • Sorg:
  1. There will be more IMPACT discussion in 2019.
  2. Mad Mike will be unblocked by IMPACT’s main account.
  3. Mad Mike will make one of Sorg’s business relationships awkward in 2019.
  • Mad Mike:
  1. He will do something to get himself reblocked by IMPACT in 2019.
  2. Sorg will have to ask a luchador a question in Spanish during 2019.
  • Tina: WMS will do a live show from the west coast.
  • Carlins: Larry will earn himself a lifetime ban from Mayhem Mania.
  • Ty Cross: He will visit the studio in 2019.

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


We’ve got a special Mike and Mike edition of the show this week as we’re talking about some new news – and some old news in professional wrestling. This week we’re talking about:

  • Neville is back – – in Dragon Gate.
  • Dear Chris DeJoseph: Mad Mike has some thoughts for Neville for Lucha Underground. xoxox
  • Punishment Martinez is headed to WWE.
  • Sorg is predicting that once the WWE Performance Center gets hold of Punishment Martinez, he’s going to look a little different.

  • Wait….Mad Mike was happy with something on RAW?!?!?
  • We’re talking some comparison between Brie Bella and Maurice.
  • We’re apparently imagining what Punishment Martinez smells like on this episode?
  • The Shield was half of a 3-hour RAW. Wrap your head around that.
  • Can we tell you about the Broken Universe? [Picture as a door-to-door mission group pitch.]
  • There’s a Super Show Down happening. We’re sharing some thoughts.
  • It’s WWE writing – it’s not supposed to be Shakespeare.

  • Sorg just realized that The Bushwackers may be a possibility to appear for Super Show Down.
  • This week’s Big Question: What is (other than the Mayhem Show of course) the best wrestling podcast (preferably from an actual wrestler)?
  • Thanks to Dave Podnar for providing the Best of 2008 WWE Magazine for Sorg. It’s a nice little time capsule that he’s using to fill out the last part of the show.
  • Sorg is playing Guess Who with the faces on the front of the Best of 2008 WWE Magazine he has in studio.
  • We’re trying to finagle a way to watch No Holds Barred with David Arquette…

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.

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

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
Week 4

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

Move 2: @ChadTheShad
ADD Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly to Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin vs. The Bar vs. The Revival

Move 3: @GavelLawless
SWAP Killian Dane for Batista

Move 4: Officer @IWCOfficerDan
SWAP Aleister Black for Brock Lesnar

Move 5: @Bobbyfjtown
KILL War Machine vs. Eric Young & Alexander Wolfe and CREATE Billie Kay & Peyton Royce vs. Ember Moon & Kairi Sane

With the Week 4 moves now in the books, here are the five newly created matches on our card.

Billie Kay & Peyton Royce vs. Ember Moon & Kairi Sane

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…)
