The Shortest WWF PPV Match Took Place 24 Years Ago Today

Big Boss Man vs The Rock Shortest WWE WWF Match Ever Survivor Series 1998 WrestleFeed App

On November 15, 1998, the World Wrestling Federation aired ‘WWF Survivor Series 1998’ LIVE on PPV from the Kiel Center at St. Louis, Missouri.

The 1998 edition of the World Wrestling Federation’s traditional ‘Survivor Series’ event featured a 14-man tournament for the vacant WWF World Heavyweight Championship.

This Survivor Series didn’t even feature one classic Survivor Series Elimination match, but is still being remembered as one of the better Survivor Series PPVs.

The Rock won his 1st ever WWF Championship on this night. Not only did The Rock set a new record for being the youngest WWF Champion at the time (at the age of 26), but he was also involved in the shortest WWF/E pay-per-view match of all time!

During the 14-man tournament for the vacant WWF World Heavyweight Championship, The Rock faced Big Boss Man in one match, and rolled him up to pin him and win the match in about 4 seconds!

It should be noted that this is the shortest “PPV” match in WWF/E history. The overall shortest match in WWE history is Aliyah vs. Natalya from an episode of SmackDown in January 2022, where Aliyah pinned Natty in 3.17 seconds.
