How much wrestling actually happened at Evolution?

WWE featured 7 total matches on the main card of Evolution (Sun., Oct. 28, 2018) from the NYCB Live arena in Uniondale, New York.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 23 minutes, and 34 seconds (3h 23m 34s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the 7 matches that took place during this event:

  • 28m 39s: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair
  • 16m 26s: 20-Woman Battle Royal
  • 14m 08s: Ronda Rousey vs. Nikki Bella
  • 13m 39s: Sasha, Bayley, Natalya vs. Riott Squad
  • 12m 29s: Kairi Sane vs. Shayna Baszler
  • 11m 03s: Trish Stratus & Lita vs. Mickie James & Alicia Fox
  • 10m 05s: Toni Storm vs. Io Shirai

These times add up to 1h 46m 29s, which is roughly 52.3% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 53.9%.

The match time of 28m 39s for Lynch versus Flair ranks as the 8th longest 1-on-1 match on WWE PPV since the start of 2013.
