Dana Brooke discusses the loss of the 24/7 Championship.
Back in November 2022, the 24/7 Championship was retired from WWE after Nikki Cross tossed the belt in the trash shortly after winning it. The championship, which was first introduced in 2019, was largely critiqued by fans for the lack of importance that it was presented with. Throughout the championship's three year history, Dana Brooke held the belt on 14 separate occasions.
In a new interview with Fightful, Dana Brooke revealed that there was some things that she had pitched in order to keep the title relevant.
"Oh, my God. Yes. Yes, I had a lot of things I wanted to do with the 24/7 title. I felt like it was, honestly, everything that I represent. I represent champion every single day, whether it be in the ring, outside of the ring, from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed, I try and be a champion. So, I had a lot of ideas and a lot of passionate things I wanted to do and be serious with it. I wanted, actually, to transition it to a women’s Intercontinental title because I feel like that’s something that would motivate women to keep going and have something else to fight for."
Brooke also noted that she was heart broken when she found out the title was being retired.
"You know, I was heart broken ‘cause I felt like I put my heart and soul into it. I’ve got to accomplish so much with that title, whether it being ha-ha moments to showing my athleticism in the ring when I actually pinned Cedric for it. So, it was highs and lows, but overall, you can’t cry over spoiled milk, so I had to let it go and keep moving forward and forward, and put a smile on my face and hopefully there’s an opportunity to come."
