How much wrestling actually happened at WWE Survivor Series 2019?

WWE featured seven total matches on the main card of Survivor Series 2019 (Sun., Nov. 24) from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 24 minutes, and 59 seconds (3h 24m 59s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the seven matches that took place during this event:

  • 29m 17s: Men’s Elimination Match
  • 27m 53s: Women’s Elimination Match
  • 18m 04s: Lynch vs. Bayley vs. Baszler
  • 16m 45s: Styles vs. Nakamura vs. Strong
  • 14m 06s: Adam Cole vs. Pete Dunne
  • 10m 00s: Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan
  • 6m 54s: Brock Lesnar vs. Rey Mysterio

These times add up to 2h 02m 59s, which is roughly 60.0% of the show. That percentage is about as high as any non-Rumble event scores for WWE. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 53.8%.

The women’s elimination match significantly closed the timing gap that it has always dealt with compared to the men’s elimination match over the last several years at Survivor Series. The men’s match was roughly 35 minutes longer than the women’s match in 2016. That gap lowered to 15 minutes in 2017, four minutes in 2018, and less than 90 seconds this year.

Are you surprised by any of these results, Cagesiders? Which of these matches received less (or more) time than you hoped for?
