How much wrestling actually happened at Money in the Bank 2020?

WWE featured seven total matches on the main card of Money in the Bank 2020 (Sun., May 10).

The main card of this pay-per-view (PPV) lasted 2 hours, 23 minutes, and 46 seconds (2h 23m 46s). Here is a sorted list of the bell-to-bell times for the seven matches that took place during this event:

  • 27m 00s: Men’s Money in the Bank ladder match
  • 21m 42s: Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match
  • 19m 23s: Drew McIntyre vs. Seth Rollins
  • 12m 02s: SmackDown tag championship Fatal 4-Way
  • 10m 44s: Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt
  • 10m 29s: Bayley vs. Tamina
  • 1m 44s: R-Truth vs. Bobby Lashley

If you don’t double count the overlapping times for the two Money in the Bank ladder matches, then these times add up to 1h 21m 22s, which is roughly 56.6% of the show. For comparison’s sake, the overall match time percentage for all WWE PPVs since the start of 2013 is 54.1%.

The total run time of 2h 23m 46s is the shortest pay-per-view length that I have recorded for all 103 WWE events that I have timed going back to the beginning of 2013. That mark was previously held by No Mercy 2016, which clocked in at 2h 37m 40s.

The two Money in the Bank ladder matches each had their own opening and closing bells, so the timing of those matches was very straightforward even though they ran concurrently.

Strowman vs. Wyatt was the longest Universal championship match since earlier this year at Royal Rumble 2020.

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