First of all the audience needs to care enough about both performers, which limits the field right away.
Second, they need 60 minutes of stamina, which limits it further.
Third, they need a wrestling repertoire that's big enough to go one hour.

So basically, AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, or Seth Rollins.


I would definitely watch it with two of those guys.
What about Joe?

Re: Would you bring back the 60 minute Iron Man Match?

I would bring it back(if it could be done right) but the current booking of even the 30-minute version of the iron man match is suspect at best. I wouldn't trust WWE with booking an hour-long one on one match. Also as much as people believe that the craving for "wrestling" is insatiable the audience(WWE's) as a whole lacks the attention span required for watching a 60-minute match. Look at the nonsense that the crowd pulled during the Rollins vs Ziggler(two wrestlers who the crowd supposedly wants to watch) iron man match. Why would I try and book a match longer than that?

Yes. Best to do it at a second rate PPV. I like that they only do it when the world title is at stake.

It's always been about having the right guys doing the match. Rollins and Ziggler as an example of fans having no attention span for it is a bad one. WHO REALLY was excited or was in anticipation for this lol? When was the last time those two were in main events that the average viewer had any care for?

When they chose guys like Lesnar and Angle it made sense with their background to make people at least think they would get something entertaining. Rock and HHH had their blood feud. Cena and Orton even made sense. Hart and HBK was an ironic situation as their ironman made them enemies and hated rivals after the match lol.

I feel like current WWE is a bad example, there's such a trend to antagonize the audience to make it seem like a mediocre product is that because of them (beach balls, what chants, etc), but look at the exact same company when they're running NXT shows, and look how audiences go out of their way to play along (booing great heels, paying attention to promos).

You get the audience you cultivate. I don't think it's a question of attention span, but rather of whether the product they're watching gives them a reason to pay that much attention. When you get served nonsense so frequently, it shouldn't come as a surprise that you don't give them the benefit of the doubt when something actually good comes up. The audience is never to blame in my eyes, e.g. the Iron man match at Extreme Rules. It's not the crowd taking a dump on the match, it's 4 hours of underwhelming content beforehand that doesn't set the scene as well as it should.


I also don't see how WWE could even think Ziggler would have people caring when the guy has been booked to hell in recent years lol. Fans know damn well that match meant nothing in the big scheme of things. Where is Ziggler and Rollins now lol?

Sometimes the fans need more credit in why they are responding the way they are to some things. Can't be both ways. When they boo Reigns some say they are doing justice, well if they crap on things some people think they shouldn't maybe it's a sign of a disconnect the WWE has presenting their product to their fanbase.

Sometimes it can be dead crowds or pricks in the audience, but WWE should never be off the hook for miscalculating. They have been doing this for how long now?

It's like blaming the fans in 1995 and 1996 for changing the channel to watch NWO and Nitro when RAW was stinking up the joint lol.

Re: Would you bring back the 60 minute Iron Man Match?

No the current WWE fanbase only wants spots on spots on top of spots. That's all they care about.

There is no one on the current roster who I am invested in enough to watch for 60 mins. Every character is the same and cuts the same promo so whats the point?

Maybe if we had guys who felt like actual STARS then I would feel differently.




"THE MAN" Becky Lynch. The FIRST WWE Superstar to be on the cover of ESPN.
The FIRST woman to pin Ronda Rousey.
The FIRST Undisputed Women's Champion.
2019 Women's Royal Rumble Victor.
The Face of the Company. The Champ Champ.
The Greatest Female Wrestler Of All Time.

Only special occasions. Hell in the Cell isn't as special as it should be.

If it doesn't make money, it doesn't make sense.
