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.

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…)

WWE RAW Wrap Up 9/20/16: Steel Cage of Emotions

The crew talks WWE RAW shortly after it goes off air. The guys are excited about the Cruiserweight Division with Cedric Alexander, Rich Swann, Brian Kendrik and Gran Metalik debuting. But where was TJ Perkins other than the Pre Show? We talk the cage match between Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns, some cage logic, and Rusev vs Seth Rollins. Dana Brooke is doing great things on the side as Bayley vs Sasha Banks vs Charlotte gets real, we are amazed at the 10 man tag (The New Day, Sami Zayn, Enzo & Cass vs Chris Jericho, Shining Stars and Anderson and Gallows) and the blue phone to call Teddy Long to make it happen, and the Best of Series that will never end of Cesaro vs Shemus.
