BY THE NUMBERS

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-06-12 06:30:00

It is not the ratings that are dropping in the world of professional wrestling. This week saw a 20 percent drop in the amount of wrestling and left us with 200 minutes of wrestling over the thirteen hours of wrestling on the nine shows that are covered. There were three fewer matches than the previous week.

Only officially announced 24/7 Title Matches will be considered for this column.

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.
