Mayhem Mania 2022 – Week 7

This. Is. Mayhem Mania!

It’s not just the ultimate fantasy booking challenge. It’s also a competitive thought experiment!

The object of Mayhem Mania is to craft the best WrestleMania card possible within the boundaries of our current reality. That means anyone WWE can book in a match is available to our players.

But this year, there’s a twist! Mayhem Mania 2022 is a two-night event! Night 1 will be the night for our traditional Mayhem Mania card featuring WWE-related matches. But on Night 2, we open the “forbidden door” and make it possible for our players to create matches with anyone outside of WWE.

The journey so far:
– Week 1
– Week 2
– Week 3
– Week 4
– Week 5
Week 6

Every week, we invite players to make a change to one of the matches on our cards. They can:
– KILL a match entirely and CREATE a new one with other individuals
– SWAP out an individual or team in a match for another individual or team
– SWAP out an individual or team in a match with an individual or team in another match already on the card
– ADD an individual or team to an existing match

Not everyone is currently eligible to be used in Mayhem Mania. Some are being held in a place we lovingly refer to as SPACE JAIL. Here’s the current inmate count:

  • Avery Good
  • Commander Sterling
  • Jessie McKay
  • Rey Fenix
  • Sonny Kiss
  • Ultra Mantis Black
  • Will Ospreay
  • Ziggy Haim

Five moves were made on last Tuesday’s Wrestling Mayhem Show. Let’s see what changes our players made!

Move #1 (by Ronnie Starks a.k.a. “Steve”)
ADD Danhausen to The Fiend vs. “Joker” Sting

Move #2 (by Sorgatron)
SWAP Jeff Hardy for Jay White

Move #3 (by Roni Nicole)
KILL Zombie “Rick Rude” & Ricky Morton & Soultaker & Lord Zoltan vs. Dink & Swoggle & Sunny (1993) & The Executioner and

Move #4 (by Tina Keys)
KILL AJ Lee & CM Punk vs. Dr. Britt Baker & Adam Cole and
CREATE Bryan Danielson vs. Josh Alexander

Move #5 (by Mad Mike)
SWAP Johnny Knoxville and Samoa Joe

So, with the moves from Week 6 of Mayhem Mania now in the books, let’s take a look at what our cards look like.

Mayhem Mania 2020: It Begins

Welcome back to year six of Mayhem Mania!

This is the ultimate fantasy booking game. 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.

The WWE’s talent pool has never been deeper. Combine that with the other talents on the fringes that they theoretically may have access to and there’s no excuse for them not putting together the greatest WrestleMania card of all time. We’re going to show what’s possible.

Our game began during the Wrestling Mayhem Show on Tuesday, January 21. Eight players were invited to each create a single match. As an added layer to this year’s game, we’re asking more people to eliminate names from being eligible to use in Mayhem Mania – sending them through the Forbidden Portal into Space Jail. But there’s a catch, unlike in previous years, this may not be a permanent. Each week a random spin of our newly acquired prize wheel will determine if one of them can escape from Space Jail and re-enter the game. No “double jeopardy”. Once someone escapes from Space Jail, they can’t be sent back.

So, let’s check out the 8 matches our crew created.

Match #1
(Created by BobbyFJtown)
Finn Balor vs. Bray Wyatt
week1-1

Match #2
(Created by Ronnie Starks)
#DIY vs. Time Splitters
week1-8
Match #3
(Created by Sorgatron)
Elias vs. Tony Nese
week1-2

Match #4
(Created by Honey Badger)
Rhea Ripley vs. Mercedes Martinez

week1-5

Match #5
(Created by Dave Podnar)
Velveteen Dream vs. R-Truth
week1-4

Match #6
(Created by Tina Keys)
Mia Yim & Kay Lee Ray & Tegan Nox vs. Asuka & Kairi Sane & Io Shirai
week1-7

Match #7
(Created by Mad Mike)
WALTER vs. Keith Lee
week1-3

Match #8
(Created by Mainstream Mat)
Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong vs. Shayna Baszler & Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir
week1-6

And here’s who got sent to Space Jail…

SPACE JAIL!
BobbyFJtown: Randy Orton
Ronnie Starks: Enzo
Sorgatron: Lacey Evans
Honey Badger: Bayley
Dave Podnar: Triple H
Tina Keys: Ronda Rousey
Mad Mike: WeeLC
Mainstream Mat: Bobby Fish

So, Mayhem Mania 2020 is underway. We have an eight-match card and we have eight people/things now serving time in Space Jail. Next Tuesday, we’ll invite five players to each make a single change to the existing card. Remember, any match that survives three consecutive rounds without being altered in any way will graduate to the Mayhem Mania SUPERCARD. The creator of that match will get some rewards and we’ll create a new match to take its place on our “undercard”.

By the time this whole thing is over, we’ll have eight graduated matches on our SUPERCARD. Trust me, it’ll work. We’ve already done this five time, and we haven’t failed yet.

Which of our eight matches do you like the best? Which ones do you think need some work? Which ones need to be dumped entirely. Post a comment or hit up the Wrestling Mayhem Show on social media to share your thoughts.

Before we go, we want to mention our Royal Rumble Challenge. Email your picks for the winners of both Rumble matches to [email protected] Each correct pick will earn you a ticket to send someone through the Forbidden Portal to Space Jail. So, if you get both picks right, you’ll get to send two people to Space Jail! What a deal!

Enjoy Mayhem Mania and we’ll see you next week!

Mayhem Mania 2019: Round 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.


For those of you who are just joining us, here’s where you can catch up on Mayhem Mania 2019: Opening Round – Round 1 – Round 2 – Round 3

Round 4 of Mayhem Mania 2019 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show on Tuesday, February 19. Before it could began we had to reward Sorgatron for creating the first match to GRADUATE to our SUPERCARD! To GRADUATE, a match must survive 3 rounds without being altered in any way. (more…)

Wrestling Mayhem Show 652: Babyface Batista

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

Marcus Mann joins the mayhem this week, which means it’s likely we’ll be talking very little wrestling and a bunch of John Cena.  Thankfully we have Larry, Matt, Rizz, Mad Mike, and Sorg to keep the show rolling as we discuss:

  • We have Marcus Mann on the show – the guy who hasn’t watched wrestling since September?
  • Welcome to the Young Justice episode?
  • Marcus Mann is sharing some thoughts on Brock Lesnar and Brock-being-Brock.
  • Anytime Marcus Mann watches a wrestling match, he has some psychology assessments thanks to Shirley Doe.
  • Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar are there for particular reasons in WWE. They are in a category of their own.
  • Liking our discussion about intergender wrestling? Join us for our panel.
  • Randy Orton walks a line all the time.
  • This is the time in the show when Marcus Mann tells us how amazing John Cena is.
  • Marcus Mann is not a fan of skinny Cena.
  • With Patreon in the Bank looming, we’re looking to see if Marcus Mann can book a MayhemMania match WITHOUT John Cena (if someone uses an eliminator).
  • It’s MayhemMania time. We can’t wait to see what our crew books this week!
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

Wrestling Mayhem Show 650: The Return Of MayhemMania

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

It’s that magical time of year when we put ourselves in Vince McMahon’s shoes for MayhemMania.  We’ve got Mad Mike, Larry, Farnsworth, Sorg, and Mainstream Matt in studio to talk about:

  • We’re preparing for NXT to see some roster changes due to some call-ups.
  • 205 Live has a new broadcast member in Aiden English.
  • We are headed into the royalest of rumbles with men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches.
  • We’re running down all of the places where you can find John Cena (or his voice). He’s everywhere!
  • We are relying on Sasha Banks to save what could otherwise be a meh match with Ronda Rousey to make it amazing.
  • Ronda Rousey should be in NXT learning the ropes. She’s doing okay where she is – but she’d be better if she were going through and learning the ropes.
  • We’re blaming Smashmouth for so many things tonight.
  • We’re talking some Hardcore Holly and Brock Lesnar.
  • Are we comparing Finn Balor to Hardcore Holly? Maybe.
  • We’re running through our dark horse options for the Royal Rumble.
  • It’s MayhemMania season – which means we’re booking our dream matches.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?
