An interesting statistic about Brock Lesnar that should be noted is that Lesnar’s singles PPV matches from WrestleMania 32 in 2016 till last night’s Great Balls of Fire 2017 PPV have lasted a total of only about 38 minutes (with his match with Samoa Joe lasting only 6:25). On the other hand, top WWE star Roman Reigns’ singles PPV matches from WrestleMania 32 till Great balls of Fire 2017 have lasted a total of about 5 hours (it should be noted that we haven’t counted PPV tag team matches or Royal Rumble matches and this 5 hour number for Reigns only includes PPV singles matches, not TV and live event matches).
