Pre-match Segments

Three matches received the special treatment of a dedicated video package during the pre-match segment. The videos hyping the women's ladder match (3m 06s), Mahal's match (4m 00s), and the men's ladder match (2m 41s) combined to take up 9m 47s of the pre-match segment time.

Post-match Segments

The post-match segments combined for a total time of 12m 48s, which is 7.7% of the show. This is the 47th highest percentage in this category out of the 60 events in my data set.

  • 0m 38s: Breezango vs. The Ascension

Miscellaneous Segments

That leaves about 13.3% (22m 11s) of the show for everything else. This is the 24th highest percentage in this category out of the 60 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. Money in the Bank 2017 included 6 different blocks of miscellaneous segments. Here is how long each block lasted, in chronological order:

  • Block 1: 3m 46s (Then Now Forever; Opening video and pyro)
  • Block 2: 1m 56s (Ad for Great Balls of Fire; Backstage Lana interview)
  • Block 3: 2m 13s (Ad for Gold Bond; Don't try this at home; Bryan returns to SmackDown)
  • Block 4: 10m 20s (Ad for WWE Network; Fashion Vice; Kanellis debut; Shane tweet)
  • Block 5: 1m 46s (Ad for Gold Bond; Hype for Great Balls of Fire)
  • Block 6: 2m 10s (Ads for WWE Shop & Great Balls of Fire; Hype for Talking Smack)

Summary

The overall run time for Money in the Bank 2017 was 2h 46m 45s, and this ranks 48th highest out of all 60 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 427 entries in my data set.

  • 42m 04s: Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match (21st longest out of 427 entries)
  • 37m 41s: Jinder Mahal vs. Randy Orton (39th)
  • 24m 51s: Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match (149th)
  • 19m 08s: The Usos vs. The New Day (223rd)
  • 13m 44s: Naomi vs. Lana (325th)
  • 7m 06s: Breezango vs. The Ascension (416th)

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 63.0%.

(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.)

  • 70.9%: Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match
  • 64.1%: The Usos vs. The New Day
  • 55.6%: Jinder Mahal vs. Randy Orton
  • 54.0%: Naomi vs. Lana
  • 53.8%: Breezango vs. The Ascension
  • 53.5%: Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match
