AEW featured nine total matches on the main card of All Out 2020 (Sat., Sept. 5) in Jacksonville, Florida.
The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 48 minutes, and 27 seconds (3h 48m 27s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the nine matches that took place during this event:
- 29m 36s: Page & Omega vs. FTR
- 23m 41s: Jon Moxley vs. MJF
- 21m 49s: Casino Battle Royal
- 16m 57s: Hikaru Shida vs. Thunder Rosa
- 15m 25s: Young Bucks vs. Jurassic Express
- 15m 05s: Rhodes, Cardona, Sky, Marshall vs. Dark Order
- 15m 03s: Chris Jericho vs. Orange Cassidy
- 6m 18s: Britt Baker vs. Big Swole
- 6m 06s: Matt Hardy vs. Sammy Guevara
These times add up to 2h 30m 00s, which is roughly 65.7% of the show. The overall match time percentage for all AEW PPVs is now 61.5%. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 54.1%.
As is typical of AEW pay-per-view cards, the night was filled with lengthy matches up and down the card. Chris Jericho’s Mimosa Mayhem match was one of the shorter bouts of the night, and it still broke the 15 minute mark.
FTR’s battle with Omega and Page almost touched 30 minutes, which is probably 10 minutes too long on a humid Florida night when the venue is only 15% filled with fans who are very far away from the ring.
Matt Hardy’s match took place in two distinct parts, with clear opening and closing bells for each section. The first part lasted 3m 52s and the second part lasted 2m 14s, so I added these two numbers together to get the overall match time of 6m 06s. There was a break of about 2m 03s in between these two parts, so that’s all it took for a doctor to clear Matt Hardy, who endured very troubling circumstances as a result of a scary fall onto the concrete.
Here are the match time percentages for the previous AEW events, in chronological order:
- 54.8%: Double or Nothing 2019
- 60.2%: Fyter Fest 2019
- 58.8%: Fight for the Fallen 2019
- 62.4%: All Out 2019
- 66.5%: Full Gear
- 57.8%: Revolution
- 65.0%: Double or Nothing 2020
