When it comes to the length of wrestling matches, there’s rarely a limit. Once in a while a cap is placed on the amount of time allowed, and obviously televised matches need to fit within a designated timeslot, but most of the time, wrestlers are able to continue grappling until someone is pinned and a winner is declared.
