Tyson Kidd comments on the Extreme Rules crowd and the Iron Man Match

While the overall PPV may have left some fans split, Extreme Rules had a fantastic main event match. Seth Rollins challenged Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship in an Iron Man Match, and both men put their heart and soul into their performance.

However, the Pittsburgh crowd seemed to only care about counting down the match’s clock. They eventually started a chant, counting down from 10 before emulating the buzzer at the end. It was highly distracting, and even, noticeably, bothered the performers.

Tyson Kidd spoke on the incident when he was interviewed by Chris Van Vliet.

That’s them entertaining themselves. Obviously, I would prefer if they didn’t do that, but I can understand why they did that. They’re sitting there and you have a clock and they’re waiting to see towards the end. I would appreciate if they didn’t do that because if you actually take that part out of it, the match was amazing. And then that same crowd gave Seth a standing ovation at the end. So they appreciated the effort. I understand why, but I just wished it hadn’t happened.

He also spoke on his new role backstage, if he ever hopes to wrestle again, Total Divas, and the night of his injury. You can check out the full interview below.

    Plain and simple you shouldn’t end a 4 hour wrestling show with a 30 minute iron man match

  • Well….

    An iron man match made no sense as Ziggler and Rollins had not been trading wins, which is what you would use to build to an iron man match. Additionally, had the two of them not previously wrestled for 30 minutes in one match and over ten minutes in the another match, people would not have been bored. This was essentially the third ppv quality match between two men who while are great wrestlers, do not have good chemistry.
