BY THE NUMBERS

By Richard Trionfo on 2020-06-29 06:44:00

Another week and another attempt for WWE to try to provide enough wrestling that could cover half a New Japan main event. Other than NXT, which had a whopping 33 minutes this week (an increase of 4 minutes over last week), none of the other WWE shows had more than 22 minutes of wrestling. That came from Smackdown, which only broadcast one hour of new programming due to the Tribute to the Undertaker. We almost saw 205 Live match Raw’s total for the week with only 30 minutes of programming.

The totals for the week were down by 33 minutes to 233 minutes of total wrestling. Even with a drop of 30 minutes from last week’s totals for AEW, the brand had more than 38 percent of the wrestling for the week.

This week’s episode of AEW Dark was 75 minutes and 205 Live was 30 minutes so the averages will reflect that change.

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.
