WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch made an interesting comment through the power of social media.
It all started when she was promoting her appearance for a signing in San Antonio Texas. It was announced that she decided to be at the signing for an extra hour and a half.
This was when she took a shot at WWE for the length of their pay-per-view events by stating that the 6-hour length of her appearance is a short pay-per-view by WWE standards. You can see her tweet here:
Six hours! Or as WWE likes to call it, a short PPV https://t.co/sjwsNmUr3x

Since the launch of WWE’s streaming service, WWE Network, the length of these pay-per-view events have been extended. The big four shows – Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, Survivor Series, and SummerSlam – can last anywhere from four to six hours long. While their B-list shows are four hours long.
The company does this to tout during their quarterly revenue conference calls with their investors about how many hours of content that fans watch on the WWE Network.
Lynch is expected to make her next title defense as WWE RAW Women’s Champion at the Stomping Grounds pay-per-view event that takes place on Sunday, June 23.
