About this Episode

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 RoundRound 1Round 2Round 3 - Round 4

Round 5 of Mayhem Mania 2019 was held during the Wrestling Mayhem Show on Tuesday, February 26. 5 people were invited to each make a single change to our existing 8 matches on our “undercard”. Any match that survives 3 rounds without being altered in any way GRADUATES to our SUPERCARD. So far, one match has earned this distinction.<!--more-->

A bounty of ELIMINATORS have been awarded during Mayhem Mania. ELIMINATORS allow a player to eliminate any single person from being used at all during this year’s Mayhem Mania. An ELIMINATOR can be used at any time once it’s been earned. After Round 5 was completed, Sorgatron used the ELIMINATOR he earned to ELIMINATE Bobby Fish. Here’s the list of who’s been eliminated thus far.
