Match Times

The nine matches combined for a total time of 1h 47m 43s. This means that 47.0% of the show was devoted to bell-to-bell action. This is the 84th highest percentage in this category out of the 89 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 ShowDown. This also includes where each match time ranks out of all 668 matches in my data set.

  • 25m 39s: Triple H vs. Randy Orton (47th longest out of 668 matches)
  • 17m 52s: 51-man Battle Royal (173rd)
  • 11m 26s: Finn Balor vs. Andrade (360th)
  • 11m 13s: Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin (373rd)
  • 10m 12s: Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler (421st)
  • 9m 14s: Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon (468th)
  • 8m 32s: Undertaker vs. Goldberg (501st)
  • 8m 22s: Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley (504th)
  • 5m 13s: Lucha House Party vs. Lars Sullivan (616th)

Goldberg has now wrestled in five matches since returning to WWE in 2016. Here is how long he wrestled on each card:

Goldberg’s last fight prior to this recent run occurred in 2004, and it was the infamous WrestleMania 20 match against Brock Lesnar. That match lasted nearly 14 minutes. At this stage in both Goldberg and Undertaker’s career, it wasn’t a great idea to book their match at Super ShowDown to go longer than five minutes.

The survival times for the 51-Man Battle Royal can be found here.

Pre-match Segments

The pre-match segments combined for a total time of 1h 07m 24s, which is 29.4% of the show. This is the 10th highest percentage in this category out of the 89 events in my data set.

Here is the sorted list of pre-match segment time for all nine matches. For some context, keep in mind that the median pre-match segment time in my data set is 6m 07s and the average time is 6m 29s.

  • 14m 48s: Undertaker vs. Goldberg
  • 10m 51s: Triple H vs. Randy Orton
  • 10m 03s: Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon
  • 7m 18s: Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler
  • 5m 56s: Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin
  • 5m 41s: Finn Balor vs. Andrade
  • 5m 14s: 51-man Battle Royal
  • 4m 30s: Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley
  • 3m 03s: Lucha House Party vs. Lars Sullivan

As you can see from the above list, the entrances for Goldberg’s match with Undertaker were ridiculously long. Their pre-match segment lasted longer than the bell-to-bell match time for seven out of the nine total matches.

Four matches received the special treatment of a dedicated video package right before superstar entrances. These four video packages combined to take up 11m 35s of the pre-match segment time. Here is the sorted list of the times for those video packages.

  • 3m 01s: Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon
  • 2m 55s: Triple H vs. Randy Orton
  • 2m 55s: Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler
  • 2m 44s: Undertaker vs. Goldberg

Post-match Segments

The post-match segments combined for a total time of 29m 15s, which is 12.8% of the show. This is the 6th highest percentage in this category out of the 89 events in my data set.

Here is the sorted list of the post-match segment time for all nine matches. For some context, keep in mind that the median post-match segment time in my data set is 2m 00s and the average time is 2m 29s.

  • 6m 50s: Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin
  • 5m 06s: 51-man Battle Royal
  • 4m 03s: Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler
  • 2m 56s: Lucha House Party vs. Lars Sullivan
  • 2m 52s: Undertaker vs. Goldberg
  • 2m 32s: Triple H vs. Randy Orton
  • 2m 18s: Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon
  • 1m 23s: Finn Balor vs. Andrade
  • 1m 15s: Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley

The post-match segment for Corbin’s match had two separate parts, with the latter part dedicated to just watching Brock Lesnar slowly walk back up the entrance ramp. I added the two parts together to get the number listed above.

Miscellaneous Segments

That leaves about 10.8% (24m 46s) of the show for everything else. This is the 52nd highest percentage in this category out of the 89 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 ShowDown included nine different blocks of miscellaneous segments. Here is how long each block lasted, in chronological order:

  • Block 1: 4m 23s (Then Now Forever; Opening hype video)
  • Block 2: 1m 19s (Ad for WWE Shop; Ad for Stomping Grounds)
  • Block 3: 2m 20s (Battle Royal promos)
  • Block 4: 3m 13s (Kingston and Woods interview)
  • Block 5: 1m 01s (Ad for Creation and Destruction)
  • Block 6: 3m 52s (24/7 title recap; Corbin interview)
  • Block 7: 1m 45s (Battle Royal promos)
  • Block 8: 4m 29s (Hype for WWE 24; Universal title story; Jeddah fans)
  • Block 9: 2m 24s (Ad for WWE Shop; Hype for Stomping Grounds)

Summary

The overall run time for Super ShowDown was 3h 49m 08s, and this ranks 17th longest out of all 89 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 668 entries in my data set.

  • 39m 02s: Triple H vs. Randy Orton (51st longest out of 668 entries)
  • 28m 12s: 51-man Battle Royal (177th)
  • 26m 12s: Undertaker vs. Goldberg (209th)
  • 23m 59s: Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin (256th)
  • 21m 35s: Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon (306th)
  • 21m 33s: Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler (307th)
  • 18m 30s: Finn Balor vs. Andrade (391st)
  • 14m 07s: Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley (526th)
  • 11m 12s: Lucha House Party vs. Lars Sullivan (598th)

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 61.6%.

(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.)

  • 65.7%: Triple H vs. Randy Orton
  • 63.4%: 51-man Battle Royal
  • 61.8%: Finn Balor vs. Andrade
  • 59.3%: Braun Strowman vs. Bobby Lashley
  • 47.3%: Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler
  • 46.8%: Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin
  • 46.6%: Lucha House Party vs. Lars Sullivan
  • 42.8%: Roman Reigns vs. Shane McMahon
  • 32.6%: Undertaker vs. Goldberg
