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.

Wrestling Mayhem Show 612: A Wrestling Episode of Scooby Doo

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

WWE may have infiltrated our local wrestling scene this past weekend, which can only mean we’ve got some great content from indy wrestling that’s still very relevant to this show!  Even better – we’ve got Farnsworth joining us on the big purple couch to add his thoughts to the mix.  As usual, he’s joined by our usual cast of characters as we’ve got Sorg and Larry in studio with Bobby F J-Town and Rizz on live via the internets!

  • We collectively learned in wrestling this week that the Honky Tonk Man sings at live shows.
  • Daniel Bryan has been cleared for action – just in time for Mayhem Mania. (And, we have differing views on this week’s show.)
  • The Ultimate DELETION (finally) happened on RAW!
  • The Ultimate DELETION wasn’t shown on the Hulu cut? Or in the arena at RAW?
  • Bobby had a James Ellsworth experience this past weekend.
  • Did James Ellsworth spoil Ultimate DELETION for Bobby?
  • It’s time for MayhemMania!
  • Farnsworth is wearing a Dragonball Z design of the Neon Blondes shirt options with Facade and Dani Mo for this week’s show!
  • Friend of the Show Chris LeRusso has some points on the Daniel Bryan return to the ring.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

It’s getting near time for Patreon in the Bank. Are you a supporter of the show so you can get in on it? https://www.patreon.com/wrestlingmayhemshow

Wrestling Mayhem Show 586: My Wife’s the Best Heel Ever

This week we’ve got a drastic night-and-day difference from last week, but it’s a great show with Shirley Doe joining us in studio. Between the amazing stories and his great personality, we could go on talking about wrestling all night. Thanks to Producer Missy for keeping the mayhem under control as much as she can this week as she’s wrangling Sorg, Rob, Mad Mike, Chad the Shad, and Larry as they talk about all the things in wrestling this week, including:WMS

  • We’ve been doing this for 586 nights? Wow.
  • If you haven’t seen the Mae Young Classic, shame on you! Your penance is to not listen to the show (yet).

  • We’re talking some thoughts on who we want to see win the Mae Young Classic.
  • We’re talking some Four Horsewomen options.

  • Rings? Do we get Captain Planet or Green Lantern with this move in Ring of Honor?
  • We’re talking the various Royal Rumble betting options that are out there.
  • Looks like Larry has commented about a stupid hat. It’s only fitting he wear the Mayhem Dunce Cap.

Wrestling Mayhem Show 582: It’s A Bruno Day in the Neighborhood

We’ve got Katie Arquette as our in studio guest this week. She chats with Chad and Sorg locally, with Mad Mike and Rizz on the internets. Of course we’re talking about what’s happening in wrestling these days, including:WMS

  • All red everything is gone, and we’re using the Mayhem Show as a support group.
  • NXT needs some love since they’re bumping people up to the main roster.
  • So, Ellsworth was back tonight. Does that mean his suspension is done already?
  • Mad Mike is calling for Big Cass to show up on Smackdown and kick Ellsworth’s butt to steal Carmella back.
  • Have you guys seen the Titus Worldwide press conferences?!?!
  • Chad is campaigning for Titus O’Neil Presents 205 Live.
  • Sorg has to unfollow Lana on Instagram.
  • Chad “Those pictures are very American.”
  • Mad Mike gets his Smackdown news from names he sees screamed through social media.
  • So, there’s apparently another statue of Bruno Sammartino, like the theme statues you see around town.
  • We’re campaigning for a SummerSlam at Heinz Field.
  • Anyone notice how awkwardly Kurt Angle looks at things on air?
  • Treygar has more stops on his going away tour than Terry Funk.

Wrestling Mayhem Show 576: Long Time Host, First Time Listener

We’ve got Larry, Dudders, Chad the Shad and Mad Mike in studio for Wrestling Mayhem Show 576.  And, if you pay attention to this week’s host, you’ll notice we’ve replaced Sorg with our very own Mayhem Mania correspondent and friend in the mainstream media – Matt.  Our wrestling-loving crew is talking about what’s happening in pro wrestling this week, including: WMS

  • Sorg looks a little different this week…
  • What happened this week in wrestling? We share our thoughts!
  • We have some mixed thoughts on Money in the Bank. And, some thoughts from Dudders representing a ladies’ opinion on ladies.
  • Is Dudders wo-mansplaining Money in the Bank?
  • As the FIRST Women’s Money in the Bank, did WWE do it right?
  • How do you lead a Women’s Revolution and have a dude grab the briefcase in your FIRST women’s Money in the Bank?
  • We’ve moved on from Money in the Bank to the Smackdown Live redo for the women’s match redo.
  • Does WWE not understand that the rules have changed with regard to what’s acceptable for women’s wrestling?
  • Bayley was a great womens wrestling example, because she was a real woman – not someone stylized to be objectified.
  • Maria made a return to the WWE, and was celebrated by objectified photos.
  • Should Carmella’s reaction to Ellsworth retrieving the Money in the Bank briefcase have been more intense about a guy stepping in?
  • We’re thinking Carmella will be throwing Ellsworth into the fray and taking the opportunity to get the Money in the Bank.
  • The Carmella and Ellsworth spot was perfect – just not for the timing.
  • In case you missed it, Enzo and Big Cass broke up, this week.
  • We feel that WWE does not believe in real friendship.
  • Vince McMahon’s heart is as black as coal.
  • We love us some Corey Graves.
  • Thanks Tina for the Corey Graves puppet master angle with Big Cass.
  • Did you know David Otunga is filming a movie?
  • Sharing some thoughts on who would make good WWE commentators.
  • We got to see The Revival, guys!
  • Mad Mike is pitching an Enzo v. Cass match for Summer Slam.
  • This week’s Big Question: Who will dethrone Asuka’s reign?
  • We’re calling it now: Asuka vacates the title and winner of the Mae Young Classic picks it up.
  • Can we get Ronda Rousey v Asuka?
  • Asuka is the Braun Strowman of the NXT Women’s Division.
  • We’ve moved on to some Roman Reigns match/competitor discussion. We have some thoughts.
  • Matt is ruining Sorg’s ass groove.
  • It’s a Sorgabration!
  • What did YOU learn from wrestling this week?

Follow our stable on Twitter: , Larry (@MutilatorLarry), Dudders (@Kdudders), Chad the Shad (@ChadTheShad) Mad Mike (@MadMike4883), and Matt (@MainstreamMat) (But no Sorg (@Sorgatron) this week!)

Mayhem Mania 2017: Round 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 (even though it kind of is). Any match created must be possible in real life. 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. (more…)

Wrestling Mayhem Show 556: Very Violent Care Bear

  • We’re sharing our thoughts on Bayley vs Charlotte at Royal Rumble.
