The WWE 24/7 Championship is hands-down the hottest title in the company. Superstars are chasing the belt round the clock and WWE has come up with unique ways to keep fans hooked on the future of the latest title.
This week on SmackDown Live, former 205 Live GM Drake Maverick pinned R-Truth to become the new 24/7 Champion. Things didn’t come easy for Maverick though – after a month’s grinding, the 36-year-old star disguised himself as Carmella and managed to dethrone Truth just as he was about to leave the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, CA.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that WWE’s current plan seems to be pointing at Maverick’s upcoming wedding. After all, there must be a significant reason why WWE has brought up his wedding multiple times on TV.
“The plan seems to be that R-Truth will regain it from Maverick at Maverick’s wedding. At least that idea was broached and there has to be a reason they’ve brought up his wedding a few times on television.”
It appears that Maverick’s wedding ceremony could very likely be Truth’s ground for redemption.
Till date, R-Truth has held the 24/7 Championship for a record 5 times and a sixth title victory seems to be on the way. The only question is how WWE is going to use Carmella on the wedding scene given The Princess of Staten Island has played a key role in Truth’s title reign.
Expect other Superstars to be on Maverick’s trail as well. In other words, fans could be getting a chaotic wedding ceremony with hell breaking loose as soon as R-Truth regains the gold from the very man who tricked him this past Tuesday.
We’re expecting the wedding ceremony to be a social media exclusive footage. WWE has been successful in turning the tide and most fans happen to be enjoying the brief 24/7 segments more than the combined 5-hour weekly RAW & SmackDown product.
