Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 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.


Catch up with Mayhem Mania 2018: Week 1 – Week 2 – Week 3 – Week 4 – Week 5 – Week 6 – Week 7

Remember, any match that survives three consecutive weeks without being altered in any way GRADUATES to our SUPERCARD. So far, that’s happened only once during this year’s Mayhem Mania.

We’ve got some work to do. We need to GRADUATE some more matches and we only have a couple more weeks to fill out our SUPERCARD. Let’s see if this week’s players can get us on the right track.

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 612 of the Wrestling Mayhem Show.

The Patreon In The Bank round is coming up on Tuesday, April 3. Only Patreon supporters of the Wrestling Mayhem Show will be invited to take part, and they’ll be granted incredible, far-reaching that will grant them almost godlike powers over our precious card. There’s still time for you to become a Patreon supporter of the Wrestling Mayhem Show and join in on the fun!
