For comparison’s sake, since the start of 2013 the only WWE PPVs that have ever reached 61.7% match time are most of the Royal Rumble events, as well as TLC 2014.
As far as ALL IN’s overall match time of 2h 26m 46s is concerned, the only WWE PPVs in my data set to include more absolute match time are Royal Rumble 2018 and Greatest Royal Rumble, both of which had an overall run time greater than 4 hours.
The pre-match segments combined for a total time of 53m 09s, which is 22.4% of the show.

It was clear from the extremely short post-match segment for Okada’s match that there was a severe time crunch during the final hour of ALL IN.
That leaves about 4.3% (10m 09s) of the show for everything else.
4m 18s of this time occurred at the beginning of the show in the form of the national anthem and the commentators welcoming the audience to the show.
The rest of the miscellaneous time came from a backstage interview with Nick Aldis, a brief spotlight on Chico and Fat Ass Masa sitting ringside, and some filler commentary between matches. Some of the commentary between matches was classified as part of the pre or post match segments, and the rest ended up in this category. Classifying these bits of commentary into the appropriate buckets wasn’t as straightforward as a typical WWE PPV, so the results here a little more open to interpretation than normal.
I did not count the piracy warning before the show as part of the ALL IN PPV, so that’s ignored in these numbers.
Here is a listing of how much total show time was allocated for each match when you add up all 3 components: pre-match time, match time, and post-match time.
- 38m 15s: Aldis vs. Cody
- 33m 37s: Okada vs. Scurll
- 32m 58s: Janela vs. Page
- 27m 00s: Omega vs. Penta
- 26m 12s: Lethal vs. Gordon
- 21m 43s: Blanchard vs. Green vs. Baker vs. Rayne
- 17m 02s: Golden Elite vs. Rey, Fenix, Bandido
- 16m 43s: Daniels vs. Amell
- 14m 02s: Cross vs. MJF
Now here is a look at the “Match Time Percentage” for each match. For any given match, this percentage shows how the match time compares to the combined pre-match and post-match segment time.
(Here’s an example calculation: an entry with a match time of 6m 00s, pre-match time of 3m 00s, and a post-match time of 1m 00s has a score of 60.0%, because the match time of 6m 00s is 60% of the total sum of 10m 00s for all three components.)
- 77.6%: Okada vs. Scurll
- 72.1%: Cross vs. MJF
- 70.2%: Daniels vs. Amell
- 68.8%: Golden Elite vs. Rey, Fenix, Bandido
- 65.9%: Omega vs. Penta
- 61.2%: Janela vs. Page
- 58.6%: Blanchard vs. Green vs. Baker vs. Rayne
- 57.6%: Aldis vs. Cody
- 55.0%: Lethal vs. Gordon
I have collected timing data on 77 WWE PPV events since the start of 2013. The timing component percentages for those shows collectively are: 24.3% pre-match segment time, 53.9% match time, 9.3% post-match segment time, and 12.5% miscellaneous segment time. In comparison to those numbers, ALL IN pumped up its match time while significantly cutting down on miscellaneous segments.
