WWE Rumor: Backstage news on WWE 24/7 Championship
What’s the story?
WWE have a new title on the show and it's called the 24/7 championship. The title is very similar to the Hardcore title during the attitude era and can be defended anytime, anywhere!
WWE Universe loved the idea but the design of the belt and the way it was introduced was not something that pleased the fans. Brad Shepard of the Oh, You Didn't Know Podcast has some backstage news on the title.
In case you didn’t know…
WWE introduced the 24/7 Championship on Monday Night Raw this week and we already have 3 champions! Titus O'Neil was crowned the first champion but before he could leave the ramp, Robert Roode pinned him and became the champion.
R-Truth then managed to pin Roode in the parking lot and drive away with the title!
The heart of the matter
On the Oh, You Didn't Know Podcast, Brad Shepard has revealed that WWE are using this title just to keep the 'jobbers' happy. This is reportedly set to be defended among the lower mid-card wrestlers who do not have a storyline. He said:
“I asked for feedback on the 24/7 Title introduction and the 24/7 Segments from Raw and a source in WWE thought the artwork and design of the title was pretty disappointing and stated ‘this was a jobber title to give those guys something to do'. They know the crowd was flat as hell for the introduction of the title and said they couldn’t blame them.”
R-Truth is currently holding the title and everyone, including WWE Now presenter, Cathy Kelly, is trying to win it from him!
