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.

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)
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
