Why don't they have more 2/3 falls matches?

I think they can be very productive as demonstrated on Raw this week. The thing about 2/3 falls matches is that they can actually make submissions worthwhile. Everybody knows that in WWE 'universe' logic that focusing on a limb is a bad move because the opponent wont tap out and instead will do a comeback and winning the match. Atleast in 2/3 falls matches the opponent can afford to tap out to a submission move that isn't simply a finisher. Hell even a normal submission move like a chin lock. ATM submissions insult our intelligence because we know unless it is a finisher, it wont lead to victory and even finishers don;t finish becuase it makes the opponent look bad to tap out. 2/3 could atleast make submissions worthwhile rather than insulting us.

It's one of those matches that should only be used during feuds. It is more effective that way.

Cause very few wrestlers can manage to fight long and stamina-demanding matches such as this or Ironman anymore.

I think it would be cool if all title matches would be 2/3 falls.

I hope WWE doesn't have people scouring forums for ideas. just imagine..

First they ruined TLC, then it was Hell in a Cell, Money in a bank always sucked, but they did it to that too.. coming summer of 2013

2 out of 3 falls: A WWE PPV Experience!

NOOOOOOOOO ! Why people wants big stipulation at every match ? It's better when it's rare. And Sheamus vs Bryan was soooooo good. Best match of the year

Re: Why don't they have more 2/3 falls matches?

when I think about 2 out of 3 falls matches, I think about triple H vs Austin at no way out 2001.

God that match was intense, and it didn't need a shitty submission match to be good (submissions moves are overrated IMO).

Like some people said earlier, there are no more intense rivalries anymore, and not a lot of wrestlers have the stamina to go for a long match like that.

because typically 2/3 fall matches take a long time

not only have people really short attention spans nowadays but its also the choice between having a ppv where one match lasts an hour or having 3x20 minute matches

in the one scenario you have 2 draws, in the second scenario you have at least 6
