How much wrestling actually happened at WWE SummerSlam 2016?

WWE featured 9 total matches on the main card of SummerSlam last night (Sun., Aug. 21, 2016) in Brooklyn.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 4 hours, 3 minutes, and 34 seconds (4h 3m 34s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the 9 matches that took place during this 4 hour event:

  • 23m 11s: John Cena vs AJ Styles
  • 19m 24s: Finn Balor vs Seth Rollins
  • 15m 18s: Dean Ambrose vs Dolph Ziggler
  • 13m 50s: Sasha Banks vs Charlotte
  • 12m 08s: Enzo and Cass vs Jericho and Owens
  • 11m 45s: Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton
  • 11m 02s: Becky, Naomi, Carmella vs Natalya, Alexa, Nikki
  • 9m 05s: The New Day vs The Club
  • 5m 39s: The Miz vs Apollo Crews

These times add up to 2h 01m 22s, which is roughly 49.8% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPV’s since the start of 2013 is 53.7%.
