How much wrestling actually happened at Backlash 2017?

WWE featured 7 total matches on the main card of Backlash 2017 last night (Sun., May 21, 2017) from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 2 hours, 50 minutes, and 1 second (2h 50m 01s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the 7 matches that took place during this event:

  • 21m 05s: Kevin Owens vs. AJ Styles
  • 15m 50s: Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal
  • 15m 50s: Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler
  • 14m 37s: Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin
  • 10m 02s: Naomi, Becky, Charlotte vs. Natalya, Tamina, Carmella
  • 9m 18s: The Usos vs. Breezango
  • 8m 56s: Luke Harper vs. Erick Rowan

These times add up to 1h 35m 38s, which is roughly 56.2% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 54.1%.
