24/7 TITLE CHANGES HANDS REPEATEDLY AT LIVE EVENT
This past Sunday saw WWE stage a live event in Honolulu, Hawaii. During the event, the 24/7 title changed hands over and over.
During the event, EC3 was booked to face Chad Gable in a singles match, but with R-Truth working as a ringside announcer, the match quickly broke down. EC3 pinned R-Truth at one point, but Truth still left with the belt, recapturing the title as Chad Gable acted as a special guest referee.
After the dust settled, R-Truth is now a 19 time and current 24/7 Champion.
