WWE Discussed Multiple Outcomes For The Iron Man Match Finish

WWE Discussed Multiple Outcomes For The Iron Man Match Finish

On Tuesday Night, NXT put on a special Super Tuesday Edition of their television show. The big draw of the night was the 60-minute, 4-man Iron Man Match.

The word draw took on dual meanings after the show finished. If you watched the show or read the spoilers, then you know the match ended in a tie with sudden death set to happen on next week’s show.

Well, WrestleVotes is reporting there were two potential outcomes discussed for the match before deciding on the 60-minute draw:

Triple H gets a lot of credit for his booking decisions, but this is one that will be met with much criticism. Personally, I can quickly think of 4 better finishes.

In no particular order:

  • Finn Balor wins
  • Tommaso Ciampa wins
  • Adam Cole wins
  • Johnny Gargano wins

Fans would have been happy with any of those 4. It’s not the first time we’ve seen Iron Man matches end in draws and go to overtime, but making fans wait for an entire week before getting the finish seems to do more harm than good.

Sure, you’ll get people to tune in next week. However, does WWE think that many more people are going to watch because they want to see what happens?

Is that worth the risk of pissing off some fans who we’ll feel cheated? I’m not sure. Let us know your thoughts on Twitter.
