Mick Foley Introduces WWE 24/7 Title; R-Truth Escapes As Champion

The newest title has been unveiled.

WWE promised Mick Foley would announce a new WWE Championship on Monday Night Raw and Foley did just that, introducing the 24/7 Title. As the name implies, the title will be defended anytime, any place, and anywhere and is open to any superstar on the WWE roster. The title is reminiscent of the Hardcore Title, which adopted a 24/7 rule when Crash Holly won the belt in February 2000. The rule lasted until 2002 when the Hardcore and Intercontinental Titles were unified.

To crown the first 24/7 Champion, Foley laid the title in the middle of the ring and announced a "scramble match" where the inaugural champion would be the man who grabbed the title. Many superstars ran down to the ring but it was Titus O'Neil who managed to get his hands on the belt first, making him the first-ever WWE 24/7 Champion.

However, his reign was short-lived as Robert Roode rolled him up on the ramp to become the new 24/7 Champion.

Roode managed to escape before he could be pinned or submitted. However, before he could escape the building, R-Truth drove away with the title.
