How much wrestling actually happened at TLC 2019?

WWE featured seven total matches on the main card of TLC 2019 (Sun., Dec. 15) from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 11 minutes, and 46 seconds (3h 11m 46s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the seven matches that took place during this event:

  • 25m 58s: Kabuki Warriors vs. Lynch & Flair
  • 22m 12s: Roman Reigns vs. King Corbin
  • 19m 04s: New Day vs. The Revival
  • 13m 40s: Aleister Black vs. Buddy Murphy
  • 13m 26s: Rusev vs. Bobby Lashley
  • 8m 28s: Viking Raiders vs The O.C.
  • 6m 35s: Bray Wyatt vs. The Miz

These times add up to 1h 49m 23s, which is roughly 57.0% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 53.9%.

Bray Wyatt has now wrestled in two pay-per-view matches since he won the Universal championship. His match last month against Daniel Bryan at Survivor Series was the second shortest match of the night (only beating out Brock Lesnar’s WWE championship match time, of course), and at TLC he made very quick work of the A-Lister. Maybe that’s just how it’s going to be with this title when it is held by superstars not named Seth Rollins.

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