10 longest WWE pay per view matches of 2017
We’ve had a glance through the ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ pay per view bouts from the last twelve months, and now, it’s time to look at the longer entries. From gimmick matches to just a straight up singles match, the variety on display in this list really is quite staggering.
We’ve got some old-timers who appeared in one or two classics, meanwhile, we’ve also got some rising stars who continue to prove why they’re the future of this business. Of course, as we all know, a long match doesn’t necessarily always equate to a good one – and a few of these efforts certainly did nothing to entice the WWE Universe.
But as we enter 2018 there’s certainly still a lot to look forward to, with many of these superstars being expected to replicate their solid work from last year.
With that being said, here are the 10 longest WWE pay per view matches of 2017.
#10) Seth Rollins vs. Triple H – 25 mins 30 secs
The story between Seth Rollins and Triple H dates back all the way to the summer of 2014 when The Architect turned on his Shield brothers and decided to side with The Game and The Authority. It made all the sense in the world for them to inevitably square off in a big time match, and that finally went down at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando.
While some fans felt like it went on for too long, we thought that they built the intensity quite well as the bout moved towards a conclusion. Both men had moments of great storytelling which made for an exhilarating conclusion, with Rollins finally coming out on top at the expense of his former mentor.
From start to finish, this was one of the major highlights of Mania 33.
