The iron man match is a match type we are seeing less and less in modern wrestling. It doesn't really matter the company. TNA, WWE, ROH. Iron man matches are showing up less and less. You see one from time to time in Japan but the wrestling culture over there is still a fair bit different from western wrestling at large despite becoming more westernized. Why do you think that is? Is there a particular reason that the iron man match has disappeared almost completely? It's not that violent a match so it hasn't disappeared because of WWE wrestlers working a more secure style. I would personally credit it to wrestling in itself having become more sped up. The crowds get anxious and bored more easily now it seems so it would be logical to do things that would seem long and tedious less. They seem to have instead replaced it more and more with the 2 out of 3 falls match (at least in the WWE) which can provide similar aspects like multiple pinfalls but without the time limit. Maybe I am completely off with my theory but then again I might not be. That's the beauty of discussions like this. Why do you think the iron man match is not done as often anymore? Would you like it to be used more? would it have to be tweaked to fit with today's culture? Discuss.
