This. Is. Mayhem Mania!
This is the ultimate fantasy booking game/competitive thought experiment. 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.
Catch up on the lore! Check out the previous rounds of Mayhem Mania 2020!
It Begins! – Round 1 – Round 2 – Round 3 – Round 4 – Round 5
We’re heading down the home stretch of Mayhem Mania 2020. We’ve come up with some really good matches, some pretty good matches and some pretty terrible matches. Time judges them all and the very best matches (and those who create them) eventually receive their just rewards.
Any match that survives three consecutive weeks without being altered in any way graduates to our SUPERCARD, opening up room for new ideas. So far, we have TWO graduated matches.
MAYHEM MANIA 2020 SUPERCARD!
MIA YIM & KAY LEE RAY & TEGAN NOX VS. ASUKA & KAIRI SANE & IO SHIRAI

EDGE VS. MATT RIDDLE

The creator of the matches that graduate get a series of rewards, and in Round 6 of Mayhem Mania 2020 it was Chad The Shad’s time to bask in the warm glow that can only come from the satisfaction of creating Edge vs. Matt Riddle. Let’s take a look at the rewards Chad received and how he decided to use them:
1. One ticket to send an individual to SPACE JAIL (*Those in SPACE JAIL are not eligible to be used during Mayhem Mania, but have a chance to escape as you’ll see in a moment): Chad chose to send Goldberg to SPACE JAIL
2. Name an entrant for the 2nd annual Mayhem Cluster Battle Rumble, to be held during the Mayhem Mania preshow. (*Individuals who are entered into the Mayhem Cluster Battle Rumble can still be used in another Mayhem Mania match): Chad chose Riddick Moss as his entrant.
3. Hand out a dose of punishment! Chad chose to give it to Tina Keys. As determined by your friendly host, Tina was forced to use a name drawn from the Jar Of The Forgotten – individuals who were on last year’s SUPERCARD who have yet to be booked a single time this year.
4. Create a new match to fill to open 8th spot on our “undercard”: Chad created Angel Garza vs. CM Punk.
One more note about SPACE JAIL. Anyone in SPACE JAIL are not eligible to be used in Mayhem Mania. BUT they have a chance to escape via a random spin of prize wheel.
So, The Undertaker rises from the depths to SPACE JAIL to terrorize Mayhem Mania once again.
With all that business out of the way, let’s see what changes our five players made to our card during Round 6 of Mayhem Mania.
