A Significant Update On The WWE 24/7 Championship 

The company’s 24/7 Championship, which was introduced in 2019 by WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, has brought a slew of intentional and unintentional comedy to WWE programming. The title was held by celebrities, professional athletes, WWE broadcast staff, Old Spice pitchmen, and numerous underutilised WWE Superstars, and it became something of a hidden gem among the company’s championship gold.

The WWE website no longer lists the 24/7 Championship as one of the company’s active championships. The title was last seen on Monday, when Nikki Cross won it from Dana Brooke with assist of Damage CTRL (Bayley, Dakota Kai, and IYO SKY). Later, in a backstage section, Cross tried to drop the title in a trash can, only to strike the can’s rim & send the title to the floor, in which the champion had left it.

Brooke went on Twitter early Tuesday morning to lament Cross’ treatment of the title belt, as well as WWE’s overall treatment of it. Brooke wrote, “Everything I’ve worked for and tried to elevate.” “EXACTLY IN THE TRASH!” R-Truth holds the record for the most reigns with the WWE 24/7 Championship, having held it 53 times as of this writing. Truth was so dominant in the division that two other stars are linked for a distant second.

Akira Tozawa and Brooke

Akira Tozawa and Brooke both have 15 recognised 24/7 Title wins on their resumes. Reggie, Brooke’s former storyline fiance, had the longest reign, holding the green and gold title for 112 days in the first of four runs. Crown Jewel 2022, the eighth premium live event in the WWE’s contentious deal with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, took place on November 5th. Despite various concerns about the event, all WWE talent returned safely, thereby making the event an overall success for the company.

To say the Saudi events were economically secure for WWE would be an understatement. As per Wrestlenomics, the PLEs in Saudi Arabia have generated a total of $400 million for the organisation over the last four years, an incredible amount for only eight shows. Wrestlenomics added that this dwarfs the combined ticket revenue from all 38 WrestleManias, which have produced approx $250 million accounting for inflation since 1985.
