Match Times

The 10 matches combined for a total time of 2h 09m 51s. This means that 54.0% of the show was devoted to bell-to-bell action. This is the 41st highest percentage in this category out of the 79 WWE pay-per-view (PPV) events in my data set, which begins with Royal Rumble 2013.

Here is the sorted list of match times for Super Show-Down. This also includes where each match time ranks out of all 579 matches in my data set.

  • 27m 34s: Undertaker vs. Triple H (31st longest out of 579 matches)
  • 23m 43s: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe (59th)
  • 19m 38s: The Shield vs. Strowman, Ziggler, McIntyre (125th)
  • 10m 36s: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair (349th)
  • 10m 34s: Cedric Alexander vs. Buddy Murphy (353rd)
  • 10m 03s: Cena & Lashley vs. Owens & Elias (368th)
  • 9m 59s: Rousey & Bella Twins vs. Riott Squad (375th)
  • 9m 41s: New Day vs. The Bar (388th)
  • 5m 42s: Naomi & Asuka vs. The IIconics (524th)
  • 2m 21s: Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz (560th)

More than half of the match time on this card came from the three longest matches, while the other seven matches each finished below the median match time in my data set of 579 matches.

Pre-match Segments

The pre-match segments combined for a total time of 1h 06m 09s, which is 27.5% of the show. This is the 12th highest percentage in this category out of the 79 events in my data set.

Here is the sorted list of pre-match segment time for all 10 matches. For some context, keep in mind that the median pre-match segment time in my data set is 5m 54s and the average time is 6m 25s.

  • 17m 38s: Undertaker vs. Triple H
  • 7m 19s: Cena & Lashley vs. Owens & Elias
  • 7m 10s: The Shield vs. Strowman, Ziggler, McIntyre
  • 6m 58s: Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz
  • 6m 39s: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe
  • 5m 46s: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair
  • 4m 19s: Naomi & Asuka vs. The IIconics
  • 3m 41s: Rousey & Bella Twins vs. Riott Squad
  • 3m 40s: New Day vs. The Bar
  • 2m 59s: Cedric Alexander vs. Buddy Murphy

Undertaker’s pre-match segment time of 17m 38s ranks 5th longest out of 579 pre-match segments in my data set. It was longer than the actual match time for 7 of the 10 individual matches at Super Show-Down.

Most of this time consisted of the entrances for Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kane, and Undertaker. Approximately 10m 49s lapsed between the opening of HBK’s entrance music and the end of Undertaker’s entrance music. That collective entrance time was once again greater than the actual match time for 7 of the 10 individual matches at Super Show-Down.

Four matches received the special treatment of a dedicated video package right before superstar entrances. These four video packages combined to take up 14m 20s of the pre-match segment time. Here is the sorted list of the times for those video packages.

  • 4m 00s: Undertaker vs. Triple H
  • 3m 48s: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe
  • 3m 27s: Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz
  • 3m 05s: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair

As you can see, the video package hyping Bryan versus Miz was longer than the actual match.

Post-match Segments

The post-match segments combined for a total time of 26m 52s, which is 11.2% of the show. This is the 17th highest percentage in this category out of the 79 events in my data set.

Here is the sorted list of the post-match segment time for all 10 matches. For some context, keep in mind that the median post-match segment time in my data set is 1m 59s and the average time is 2m 27s.

  • 8m 31s: Undertaker vs. Triple H
  • 3m 23s: Cena & Lashley vs. Owens & Elias
  • 2m 35s: The Shield vs. Strowman, Ziggler, McIntyre
  • 2m 13s: Cedric Alexander vs. Buddy Murphy
  • 2m 12s: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair
  • 2m 03s: Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz
  • 1m 42s: New Day vs. The Bar
  • 1m 40s: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe
  • 1m 28s: Rousey & Bella Twins vs. Riott Squad
  • 1m 05s: Naomi & Asuka vs. The IIconics

Undertaker’s post-match segment ranks 7th longest out of 579 total post-match segments in my data set.

Miscellaneous Segments

That leaves about 7.3% (17m 34s) of the show for everything else. This is the 78th highest percentage in this category out of the 79 events in my data set.

Most of these miscellaneous segments are crammed into the time after one post-match segment ends and before the next pre-match segment begins. Super Show-Down included 10 different blocks of miscellaneous segments. Here is how long each block lasted, in chronological order:

  • Block 1: 4m 18s (Then, Now, Forever; Opening hype video & pyro)
  • Block 2: 1m 21s (Ad for WWE 2K19; Filler commentary)
  • Block 3: 1m 56s (Ad for WWE Network)
  • Block 4: 1m 37s (Tourism ad; Plug for Four’n Twenty)
  • Block 5: 1m 04s (Ad for Evolution; Filler commentary)
  • Block 6: 1m 13s (Hype for SmackDown 1000 & Wednesday shows)
  • Block 7: 1m 56s (Tourism ad; Ad for The Marine 6; Attendance announced)
  • Block 8: 0m 59s (Ads for Total Divas and WWE Story Time)
  • Block 9: 0m 21s (Plug for PPV theme song)
  • Block 10: 2m 49s (Hype for Crown Jewel, SmackDown, and Evolution)

Summary

The overall run time for Super Show-Down was 4h 00m 26s, and this ranks 10th longest out of all 79 events in my data set.

Here is a listing of how much total show time was allocated for each match when you add up all 3 components: pre-match time, match time, and post-match time. This list also includes where each total time ranks among the 579 entries in my data set.

  • 53m 43s: Undertaker vs. Triple H (15th longest out of 579 entries)
  • 32m 02s: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe (112th)
  • 29m 23s: The Shield vs. Strowman, Ziggler, McIntyre (142nd)
  • 20m 45s: Cena & Lashley vs. Owens & Elias (284th)
  • 18m 34s: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair (333rd)
  • 15m 46s: Cedric Alexander vs. Buddy Murphy (409th)
  • 15m 08s: Rousey & Bella Twins vs. Riott Squad (426th)
  • 15m 03s: New Day vs. The Bar (429th)
  • 11m 22s: Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz (514th)
  • 11m 06s: Naomi & Asuka vs. The IIconics (517th)

These number show that Undertaker versus Triple H took up nearly 54 minutes of this card when the pre and post-match segments are taken into account. This ranks 15th highest out of 579 entries in my data set. All 14 matches that finished higher are large group matches like Royal Rumble matches, Elimination Chamber matches, and Survivor Series tag matches. This total time of 53m 43s is the highest mark for any one-on-one match in my data set.

Now here is a look at the “Match Time Percentage” for each match. For any given match, this percentage shows how the match time compares to the combined pre-match and post-match segment time. For some context, it’s good to know that the median result here since 2013 is 62.1%.

(Here’s an example calculation: an entry with a match time of 6m 00s, pre-match time of 3m 00s, and a post-match time of 1m 00s has a score of 60.0%, because the match time of 6m 00s is 60% of the total sum of 10m 00s for all three components.)

  • 74.0%: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe
  • 67.0%: Cedric Alexander vs. Buddy Murphy
  • 66.8%: The Shield vs. Strowman, Ziggler, McIntyre
  • 66.0%: Rousey & Bella Twins vs. Riott Squad
  • 64.3%: New Day vs. The Bar
  • 57.1%: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair
  • 51.4%: Naomi & Asuka vs. The IIconics
  • 51.3%: Undertaker vs. Triple H
  • 48.4%: Cena & Lashley vs. Owens & Elias
  • 20.7%: Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz
