WWE’s final pay-per-view of the decade was one of their shorter offerings. This had nothing to do with the scary conclusion to the Tables, Ladders, and Chairs main event match.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that WWE could have added AJ Styles vs Randy Orton to the TLC event, but they didn’t. Instead, they held that match off until RAW.

It was further reported that there have been complaints about WWE pay-per-views going too long. It wasn’t noted who was complaining, but they ended the event before 10:00 PM EST regardless.

Some of this [reason for a shorter TLC PPV] also was because of complaints about shows going so long, so they wanted a shorter show, ending just after 10 p.m.


We’ll have to see how WWE does in 2020 with the length of their pay-per-views. The next pay-per-view will be the Royal Rumble on January 26th. If history has told us anything that show will probably be a long one. Hopefully, they don’t run a lengthy special directly afterward to keep fans up until 1:00 AM EST on Monday morning.
