The Triple H era of WWE clearly has more in-ring action than when Vince McMahon was calling the shots and now there’s some statistical information to prove that.
There was some interesting statistical information posted by a user named /ricab98 on Reddit recently that showed how the Triple H Era of WWE has longer match times than when Vince McMahon was in charge. That’s likely something that most fans knew from just watching the shows, but now we have statistical information to back it up.
The context for this is that Triple H took over as WWE’s Chief Content Officer after Vince McMahon’s retirement on July 22nd, so the first WWE PLE/PPV run by Triple H was SummerSlam on July 30th. Regarding TV info, it is only counting WWE Raw & Smackdown shows. Here’s the info presented.
Average Wrestling Time on WWE PLE/PPV Events: Vince McMahon – 98 minutes and 0 seconds, Triple H – 108 minutes and 30 seconds.
Average Wrestling Time on WWE TV (Raw/Smackdown): Vince McMahon – 38 minutes and 48 seconds, Triple H – 53 minutes and 28 seconds.
Average Match Time On WWE PLE/PPV Events: Vince McMahon – 13 minutes and 32 seconds, Triple H – 16 minutes and 42 seconds.
Average Match Time On WWE TV (Raw/Smackdown) Vince McMahon – 6 minutes and 47 seconds, Triple H – 9 minutes and 53 seconds.
As you can see above, WWE PLE’s with Triple H have 10 minutes more of in-ring action while WWE TV shows have nearly 15 minutes more of in-ring action. Match times have also gone up on both WWE PLE and TV shows.
