How much wrestling actually happened at WWE Royal Rumble 2017?

WWE featured 5 total matches on the main card of Royal Rumble 2017 last night (Sun., Jan. 29, 2017) from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 38 minutes, and 23 seconds (3h 38m 23s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the 5 matches that took place during this event:

  • 62m 08s: Royal Rumble match
  • 24m 01s: AJ Styles vs. John Cena
  • 23m 28s: Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns
  • 13m 29s: Rich Swann vs. Neville
  • 13m 02s: Charlotte vs. Bayley

These times add up to 2h 16m 08s, which is roughly 62.3% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 54.4%.
