WWE

Extreme Rules 2013 lasted for 2 hours 54 minutes and 27 seconds (2h 54m 27s). Here is a breakdown of the timing for every single second of the show, in chronological order. The matches are in bold. The "pre-match" includes entrances, ring introductions, and any verbal promos that occur right before a match officially begins. The "post-match" includes any celebrations, replays, angles, or attacks that occur right after a match is finished.

The eight matches combined for a total bell-to-bell time of 96m 35s. That is equal to 55.4% of the total show time that was devoted to wrestling matches. I stopped the time for the Cena match when both men were offscreen right after the final spot. I hear that WWE is suggesting a phantom 10-count was made to conclusively end the match, but I did not add 10 extra seconds on to my time because there was no visible 10-count on the PPV broadcast.

The pre-match pieces combined for a total time of 38m 33s, which is 22.1% of the total show time. Once again, this generally includes all entrances, ring introductions, several video packages and/or Raw recaps, and Zeb's promo during Swagger's entrance.

The post-match pieces combined for a total time of 23m 24s, which is 13.4% of the total show time. This includes the referee replay time after the first finish of the ADR/Swagger match. This also includes the time allocated for Cena's stretcher job.

That leaves about 9.1% of the total show time (15m 55s) remaining for other miscellaneous things. This includes commercials, backstage promos, backstage segments, filler commentary between matches, hype for the post-show, the opening pyro, and so forth.

The average match time at Extreme Rules was 12m 4s. The first 5 matches all fell short of this mark while the final 3 matches all surpassed this mark.

Here is just the listing of the 8 matches, sorted by match time

  • 21m 14s: Cena vs Ryback
  • 20m 10s: Triple H vs Lesnar
  • 13m 02s: Orton vs Big Show
  • 11m 20s: ADR vs Swagger
  • 8m 36s: Jericho vs Fandango
  • 7m 59s: Sheamus vs Henry
  • 7m 25s: Hell No vs Shield
  • 6m 49s: Kingston vs Ambrose

Daniel Bryan's combined bell-to-bell time at WrestleMania 29 and Extreme Rules 2013 is 13m 43s.

Ryback's combined bell-to-bell time at those two shows is 29m 17s.

So Ryback is getting more than double the match time of Daniel Bryan? WWE, please fix this glaring mistake!
