5 Former TNA/NWA World Champions who are now chasing the 24/7 Title
Nearly a month and a half ago, WWE unveiled its newest Championship - the 24/7 Title. It was announced that the strap could be defended under 24/7 rules anywhere in the world, like the Hardcore Championship. Within the first two days of its inauguration, it became evident that it was for lower and mid-card talents to get TV time.
Moreover, another possible reason behind the title's creation might be to enhance the social media engagement. Fast forward to the present day, the 24/7 Title and the story-lines revolving around it are among the best parts of WWE programming. The untimely title changes, the fun pursuits, etc. are just some of the reasons why this new Championship has grown on us.
It should be noted that the title is even chased by Superstars who were once at the top, either in WWE or any other noteworthy promotion such as Impact Wrestling.
So, without any further ado, here are 5 former NWA/TNA/Impact World Champions who are now in the 24/7 Title hunt.
It is better to start off the list with the most obvious entry. R-Truth is currently an 8-time 24/7 Champion and has received rave reviews for his entertaining stint so far in the title picture. He is also the longest reigning champion as well, holding the title for the most part during the last one and a half month.
Even the video where he crashed Drake Maverick's wedding to recapture the strap garnered shockingly high views on YouTube. This fact clearly indicates that R-Truth isn't done chasing the title.
However, Truth wasn't always this funny character. In 2002, he joined the then-newly found professional wrestling company TNA. The promotion, at that time, featured the NWA World Title as their top Championship.
R-Truth was a two-time champion there under the name Ron "The Truth" Killings. Not only that, Truth was also the first-ever recognized African-American NWA World Champion. He undoubtedly had one of the best runs of his career there.
