While reading through the blog, I noticed in a 80’s tv show report, a match that ended with a time limit draw. I remember back then whenever two non jobbers would fight on WCW/WWE tv, if there wasn’t a disqualification, there would be a time limit draw to protect the stars. When did the idea that matches having time limits end and what was the last “significant” time limit draw in wrestling?
That reminds me, I was watching the first episode of Primetime posted to the Network as background noise while I wrapped presents this week, and holy balls who decided that Lanny Poffo v. Rene Goulet should run through a commercial break? I can only imagine the reaction if they tried to fill 2 hours with the kind of curtain-jerking garbage that filled that show. Main event of Sgt Slaughter Jr. v. Iron Sheik with a DQ finish? NO BUYS.
Anyway, it's been a long while since there was a draw on TV, actually. The Regal TV title matches in the 90s were the last ones I can think of off the top of my head. Cena v. Michaels came close but then they did a finish instead. So I'm of literally no help here.
