How much wrestling actually happened at WWE Backlash 2016?

WWE featured 7 total matches on the main card of Backlash last night (Sun., Sept. 11, 2016) at the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 2 hours, 37 minutes, and 52 seconds (2h 37m 52s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the 7 matches that took place during this event:

  • 24m 55s: Dean Ambrose vs AJ Styles
  • 18m 18s: The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler
  • 14m 20s: Women’s Six-Pack Challenge
  • 10m 56s: Kane vs Bray Wyatt
  • 10m 11s: Hype Bros vs The Usos
  • 9m 55s: Heath Slater and Rhyno vs The Usos
  • 0m 25s: Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt

These times add up to 1h 29m 00s, which is roughly 56.4% 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%.
