Who Will Be The WWE 24/7 Champion Heading Into WWE Smackdown Live 05/21/19? #247Title
Considering the new strap can be defended day or night as long as WWE referee is present, WWE is teasing that the current champion may not make it to Smackdown Live with the title. As part of their full teaser / preview, WWE had this to say:
Who will bring the 24/7 Championship to SmackDown LIVE?
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley came to Raw last night to make a major announcement, unveiling the WWE 24/7 Championship – a title that can be won and defended at any time, day or night, as long as a WWE official is present.
It was chaos from there as Superstars scrambled to the ring to become the first champion. Titus O’Neil earned the unique distinction after emerging with the title from a frantic scramble for the championship. However, O’Neil didn’t make it out of the arena with the title. First, he was defeated by Robert Roode during his celebration. Roode, who spent the rest of Raw on the run from his fellow Superstars, was dethroned by SmackDown LIVE’s R-Truth, who hid The Glorious One in the trunk of his car to throw the chasing Superstars off his scent. A waiting referee in the passenger seat gave Truth the opening to pin Roode and claim the title for himself. Will Truth make it to SmackDown LIVE as the champion, or will one (or more) Superstars take hold of WWE’s newest championship?
Interesting, but a bit of a disaster too.
