Here is the sorted list of match times for Clash of Champions 2017. This also includes where each match time ranks out of all 486 matches in my data set.

  • 22m 57s: AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal (60th longest out of 486 matches)
  • 21m 32s: Nakamura & Orton vs. Owens & Zayn (77th)
  • 12m 54s: Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way (225th)

  • 1m 58s: Breezango vs. Bludgeon Brothers (474th)

Pre-match Segments

The pre-match segments combined for a total time of 48m 54s, which is 29.5% of the show. This is the 4th highest percentage in this category out of the 68 events in my data set.

Here is the sorted list of pre-match segment time for all 6 matches. For some context, keep in mind that the median pre-match segment time in my data set is 5m 35s and the average time is 6m 14s.

  • 10m 05s: Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya

  • 7m 55s: Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way
  • 5m 11s: Corbin vs. Roode vs. Ziggler
  • 4m 17s: Breezango vs. Bludgeon Brothers

Three matches received the special treatment of a dedicated video package right before superstar entrances. The videos hyping Charlotte's match (3m 27s), Nakamura's match (3m 21s), and Mahal's match (3m 50s) combined to take up 10m 38s of the pre-match segment time.

Post-match Segments

The post-match segments combined for a total time of 14m 38s, which is 8.8% of the show. This is the 36th highest percentage in this category out of the 68 events in my data set.

Here is the sorted list of the post-match segment time for all 6 matches. For some context, keep in mind that the median post-match segment time in my data set is 1m 58s and the average time is 2m 26s.

  • 1m 36s: Breezango vs. Bludgeon Brothers
  • 1m 35s: Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way

Miscellaneous Segments

That leaves about 12.3% (20m 26s) of the show for everything else. This is the 32nd highest percentage in this category out of the 68 events in my data set.

Most of these miscellaneous segments are crammed into the time after one post-match segment ends and before the next pre-match segment begins. Clash of Champions 2017 included 6 different blocks of miscellaneous segments. Here is how long each block lasted, in chronological order:

  • Block 1: 3m 14s (Then Now Forever; Opening hype video)
  • Block 2: 3m 52s (Ads for WWE Shop & Royal Rumble 2018; Backstage w/ Bryan & Shane, Corbin)
  • Block 3: 1m 42s (Ads for Elite Ring & Tapout; Plug for PPV theme song)
  • Block 4: 5m 06s (Ads for WWE Mayhem & WWE Network; Backstage w/Singhs; Hype for Talking Smack)
  • Block 5: 4m 30s (Lesnar on Raw; Ads for Cricket Wireless & Royal Rumble 2018; Owens & Zayn promo)
  • Block 6: 2m 02s (Hype for Mixed Match Challenge; Filler commentary)

Summary

The overall run time for Clash of Champions 2017 was 2h 45m 56s, and this ranks 58th highest out of all 68 events in my data set.

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. This list also includes where each total time ranks among the 486 entries in my data set.

  • 36m 21s: Nakamura & Orton vs. Owens & Zayn (56th longest out of 486 entries)
  • 35m 27s: AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal (65th)
  • 24m 27s: Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya (177th)
  • 22m 24s: Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way (208th)
  • 19m 00s: Corbin vs. Roode vs. Ziggler (270th)
  • 7m 51s: Breezango vs. Bludgeon Brothers (472nd)

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. For some context, it's good to know that the median result here since 2013 is 62.8%.

(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.)

  • 64.7%: AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal
  • 63.6%: Corbin vs. Roode vs. Ziggler
  • 59.2%: Nakamura & Orton vs. Owens & Zayn
  • 57.6%: Tag Team Championship Fatal 4-Way
  • 43.1%: Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya
  • 25.1%: Breezango vs. Bludgeon Brothers
