How much wrestling actually happened at Backlash 2018?

WWE featured 8 total matches on the main card of Backlash 2018 last night (Sun., May 6, 2018) from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 27 minutes, and 32 seconds (3h 27m 32s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the 8 matches that took place during this event:

  • 21m 07s: AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
  • 20m 30s: Seth Rollins vs. The Miz
  • 18m 04s: Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe
  • 11m 49s: Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton
  • 10m 18s: Nia Jax vs. Alexa Bliss
  • 10m 01s: Carmella vs. Charlotte Flair
  • 8m 40s: Strowman & Lashley vs. Owens & Zayn
  • 7m 43s: Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass

These times add up to 1h 48m 12s, which is roughly 52.1% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 54.0%.
