The first ever Iron Man match in WWE history took place at WrestleMania 12 and was between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart for the WWE Championship… well, it actually wasn’t. The actual first ever WWE Iron Man match took place almost seven years earlier than this, although it did feature one of the same participants. 

The Rockers teamed up to defeat The Fabulous Rougeaus at a 1989 live event in Montreal, Canada. They would repeat the concept two days later, before the format went dormant for another three and a half years. Bret Hart would wrestle in the first ever singles Iron Man match, but his dance partner was not The Showstopper. 

At the January 9, 1993 house show in Boston, Massachusetts, Bret Hart defended his WWE Championship in a 60-minute Iron Man match against The Nature Boy himself, Ric Flair. Hart had beaten Flair for the gold at another house show a few months earlier and was now putting it back on the line in what was known at the time as a “Marathon Match”. He was victorious by three falls to two, with those in Boston likely unaware that they had just witnessed history.
