5 reasons why Vince McMahon is extremely happy with the 24/7 title
Back in May, WWE announced that a new title was going to be added to the mix. Soon after, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley unveiled the title on an episode of Monday Night Raw, to a terrible response.
The bland design of the 24/7 title didn't impress the live crowd one bit, and the response was embarrassingly mild. Somehow, in a matter of weeks, WWE managed to turn the title into the hottest act in the company, with R-Truth becoming the WWE Universe's favorite current champion. Truth won a poll on the WWE website, garnering 27% of the votes and defeating the likes of Kofi Kingston, Seth Rollins, and Becky Lynch. Reportedly, Vince McMahon is very happy with the 24/7 title and the storyline associated with it. Here are the 5 biggest reasons why Vince is pleased with the title.
#5 Mid-carders coming up with exciting angles for themselves
In a recent interview with Yahoo! Sports, R-Truth opened up on the 24/7 title angles, and who comes up with the stories. Truth revealed that unlike what happens with other major titles in WWE, most of the stories regarding the 24/7 title are being pitched by wrestlers themselves, most notably Jinder Mahal, Drake Maverick, and EC3.
Guys like Drake Maverick, Jinder Mahal, EC3, these guys came up with their own gimmick with regard to the title. Drake Maverick came up with the poster idea on his own, he took that leap. The company takes notice of that. When the opportunity is there, you have to let your creative juices start flowing and reach and grab for it.
No wonder Vince is happy with the angle, as these mid-carders have come up with a bunch of hilarious ideas until this point, and would continue to do so in the near future.
