How much wrestling actually happened at Double or Nothing?

AEW featured seven total matches on the main card of Double or Nothing (Sat., May 25) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Paradise, Nevada.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 47 minutes, and 31 seconds (3h 47m 31s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the seven matches that took place during this event:

  • 26m 35s: Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho
  • 24m 57s: The Young Bucks vs. Lucha Brothers
  • 22m 27s: Dustin Rhodes vs. Cody
  • 13m 46s: SCU vs. Strong Hearts
  • 13m 00s: Shida, Riho, Mizunami vs. Kong, Sakazaki, Sakura
  • 12m 42s: The Best Friends vs. Angelico & Evans
  • 11m 07s: Rae vs. Baker vs. Rose vs. Kong

These times add up to 2h 04m 34s, which is roughly 54.8% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 53.9%.

The match time percentage for Double or Nothing finished within the range of a typical WWE PPV. This is partially because the segment where Bret Hart unveiled the AEW world championship lasted nearly 12 minutes, and none of that counted as match time.

Are you surprised by any of these results, Cagesiders? Which of these matches received less (or more) time than you hoped for?
