WWE featured 5 total matches on the main card of Elimination Chamber 2018 last night (Sun., Feb. 25, 2018) from the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 22 minutes, and 45 seconds (3h 22m 45s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the 5 matches that took place during this event:
- 40m 10s: Men’s Elimination Chamber match
- 29m 35s: Women’s Elimination Chamber match
- 10m 03s: The Bar vs. Titus Worldwide
- 9m 56s: Matt Hardy vs. Bray Wyatt
- 8m 12s: Asuka vs. Nia Jax
These times add up to 1h 37m 56s, which is roughly 48.3% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 54.3%.
The men’s Elimination Chamber actually broke the 40 minute mark and set the record for longest chamber match of all-time. There have now been 22 Elimination Chamber matches in history; here are the 6 longest such matches (I used timing data from ProFightDB for matches prior to 2013, and used my own timing data for all other matches):
- 40m 10s: Roman Reigns wins at Elimination Chamber 2018
- 39m 20s: HBK wins at Survivor Series 2002
- 37m 35s: Randy Orton wins at Elimination Chamber 2014
- 35m 55s: Triple H wins at No Way Out 2009
- 35m 36s: Chris Jericho wins at Elimination Chamber 2010
- 34m 55s: Triple H wins at New Year’s Revolution 2005
Are you surprised by any of these results, Cagesiders? Which of these matches received less (or more) time than you hoped for?
