Earning Your Spot: The Countdown to Wrestlemania XXX – Main Event, April 10, 2013

13 Apr

As explained in my first “Earning Your Spot” post, here is the time breakdown for WWE’s Main Event from Wednesday, April 10th.

Yoshi Tatsu

Brodus Clay 15:14
Tensai 15:14
Jack Swagger 14:23
Zeb Colter 14:23
Kofi Kingston 14:00
Dean Ambrose 13:14
Roman Reigns 13:14
Seth Rollins 13:14
Yoshi Tatsu 10:44
Big E Langston 06:37
Cameron 04:22
Naomi 04:22
John Cena 03:27
Zack Ryder 02:47
Mark Henry 01:57
Ricardo Rodriguez 01:35
Alberto Del Rio 01:35
AJ Lee 01:24
Dolph Ziggler 01:24
Ryback 01:08
Triple H 01:02
Undertaker 00:54
Booker T 00:22
Brock Lesnar 00:22
Daniel Bryan 00:18
Kane 00:18
Sheamus 00:09
Randy Orton 00:09
Big Show 00:09

I think it’s clear that this show is going to throw things off majorly in terms of those who have worked the most TV time in one calendar year versus those who end up in the main events at Wrestlemania. Although, it’s possible that pay-per-views could balance this out somewhat.  In any event, here are the cumulative rankings.

TOTAL TIME
John Cena 29:28
Jack Swagger 27:40
Zeb Colter 27:40
Sheamus 23:58
Randy Orton 22:56
Brodus Clay 19:46
Tensai 19:46
Mark Henry 18:15
Big E Langston 17:55
Ricardo Rodriguez 17:50
Alberto Del Rio 17:22
Dean Ambrose 16:59
Roman Reigns 16:59
Seth Rollins 16:59
Kofi Kingston 16:14
AJ Lee 12:42
Dolph Ziggler 12:42
Wade Barrett 12:16
Miz 12:01
Yoshi Tatsu 10:44
Undertaker 09:02
Fandango 08:57
Fandango’s Dancer 08:57
Cameron 08:54
Naomi 08:54
Daniel Bryan 07:34
Kane 07:34
Big Show 07:29
Zack Ryder 06:40
Booker T 05:45
Brie Bella 04:41
Cody Rhodes 04:41
Damien Sandow 04:41
Nikki Bella 04:41
Drew McIntyre 04:13
Heath Slater 04:13
Jinder Mahal 04:13
R-Truth 04:13
Santino Marella 04:13
Ryback 03:58
Chris Jericho 03:58
Vicki Guerrero 02:11
Triple H 01:59
Paul Heyman 01:43
Kurt Warner 01:12
Brad Maddox 01:07
Brock Lesnar 00:38

Again, if Wrestlemania were booked solely on the basis of those superstars with the most amount of exposure, as of right now, assuming an eight-match card, Wrestlemania XXX would consist of the following matches:

  • John Cena v. Jack Swagger (with Zeb Colter)
  • Sheamus v. Randy Orton
  • Brodus Clay and Tensai v. Mark Henry and Big E Langston
  • The Shield v. Alberto Del Rio (with Ricardo Rodriguez), Kofi Kingston, and Dolph Ziggler (with AJ Lee)
  • Wade Barrett v. Miz
  • Yoshi Tatsu v. Undertaker
  • Fandango’s Dancer (accompanied by Fandango) v. Cameron (accompanied by Naomi)
  • Team Hell No v. Big Show and Zack Ryder

Yeah. That’s Bizarro World. Could you imagine if Yoshi Tatsu ended up booked against the Undertaker in general at this point in Taker’s career, let alone at Mania?
