How much wrestling actually happened at WWE Crown Jewel 2019?

WWE featured eight total matches on the main card of Crown Jewel 2019 (Thurs., Oct. 31) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 35 minutes, and 53 seconds (3h 35m 53s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the eight matches that took place during this event:

  • 26m 56s: Tag Team Turmoil
  • 21m 25s: Seth Rollins vs. The Fiend
  • 19m 51s: Team Hogan vs. Team Flair
  • 12m 40s: Mansoor vs. Cesaro
  • 12m 35s: AJ Styles vs. Humberto Carrillo
  • 8m 01s: Braun Strowman vs. Tyson Fury
  • 7m 21s: Natalya vs. Lacey Evans
  • 2m 05s: Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez

These times add up to 1h 50m 54s, which is roughly 51.4% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 53.8%.

The tag team turmoil match actually lasted 32m 00s from the opening bell to the closing bell. However I decided to cut out the times in between each fall when the next team made their entrance. The listed match time of 26m 56s represents the sum of the eight individual matches that comprised tag team turmoil.

The eight individual match times for Tag Team Turmoil, in chronological order, were:

  • 5m 44s: Lucha House Party vs. Roode & Ziggler
  • 0m 48s: Ryder & Hawkins vs. Ziggler & Roode
  • 5m 56s: Heavy Machinery vs. Roode & Ziggler
  • 3m 24s: Heavy Machinery vs. New Day
  • 1m 28s: New Day vs. B Team
  • 4m 46s: The Revival vs. New Day
  • 1m 00s: New Day vs. The O.C.
  • 3m 50s: Viking Raiders vs. The O.C.
