How much wrestling actually happened at SummerSlam 2019?

WWE featured nine total matches on the main card of SummerSlam 2019 (Sun., Aug. 11) from the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 3 hours, 30 minutes, and 5 seconds (3h 30m 05s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the nine matches that took place during this event:

  • 16m 37s: Trish Stratus vs. Charlotte Flair
  • 16m 23s: Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton
  • 13m 19s: Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins
  • 12m 55s: AJ Styles vs. Ricochet
  • 12m 23s: Becky Lynch vs. Natalya
  • 10m 02s: Bayley vs. Ember Moon
  • 9m 21s: Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon
  • 3m 29s: Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor
  • 1m 47s: Goldberg vs. Dolph Ziggler

These times add up to 1h 36m 16s, which is roughly 45.8% 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 match time percentage of 45.8% is the 5th lowest out of all 92 WWE PPV events that I have timed since the start of 2013. It is the lowest percentage out of all the non-WrestleMania events.

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