AEW featured seven total matches on the main card of Full Gear (Sat., Nov. 9) in Baltimore, Maryland.
The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 40 minutes, and 10 seconds (3h 40m 10s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the seven matches that took place during this event:
- 38m 46s: Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley
- 29m 38s: Chris Jericho vs. Cody
- 21m 00s: The Young Bucks vs. Proud -N- Powerful
- 18m 52s: Hangman Page vs. PAC
- 13m 18s: Riho vs. Emi Sakura
- 13m 02s: SCU vs. Private Party vs. Lucha Bros
- 11m 43s: Joey Janela vs. Shawn Spears
These times add up to 2h 26m 19s, which is roughly 66.5% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all 95 WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 53.8%.
Here are the match time percentages for the previous AEW-related events, in chronological order:
- 61.7%: All In
- 54.8%: Double or Nothing
- 60.2%: Fyter Fest
- 58.8%: Fight for the Fallen
- 62.4% All Out
Note that every single event in the above list has a higher percentage than the average WWE pay-per-view (53.8%) in my data set.
The match time percentage of 66.5% for Full Gear is higher than all but two of the 95 WWE events that I have similarly analyzed. Those two WWE events are the most recent Royal Rumble cards, which each included multiple Royal Rumble matches.
Are you surprised by any of these results, Cagesiders? Which of these matches received less (or more) time than you hoped for?
