BY THE NUMBERS

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-02-10 17:57:00

For the first time since the rebirth of this column, we saw an increase in the amount of wrestling from the nine shows that are covered by this column. Like last week, the show that had the most wrestling was Impact. This week, Impact almost hit 50 minutes of wrestling for the two hour show, but fell just short at 49 minutes. That was eleven minutes better than second place Raw. NXT UK finished in third place this week with 32 minutes of wrestling. With only two matches this week, Ring of Honor fell under 30 minutes. Both Ring of Honor and 205 Live averaged more than ten minutes per match thanks to only having two matches on each show.

With seven of the shows having more wrestling than last week, we saw an increase of 41 minutes of total wrestling over last week. There were also five more matches than last week so the average match length increased slightly while the amount of wrestling per hour increased by more than 3 minutes over last week.

When looking at the matches, if there is a [c] next to the match, that means that the show went to commercial during the matches. All times are rounded to the nearest minute so if a match is 4 minutes 29 seconds, it will be listed as 4 minutes. If a match is 5 minutes 41 seconds, it will be listed as 6 minutes. All times are based on my timing while watching the shows and should not be considered as the definitive totals.

The times for the Elimination Match on 205 Live were:

Humberto Carrillo: 10 Minutes

Cedric Alexander: 17 Minutes

Akira Tozawa: 17 Minutes

Lio Rush: 6 Minutes
