We first reported the rumor on Wednesday.
On Friday, we learned that this is exactly what WWE had in mind as they took the 24/7 Title off of Drake Maverick at his own wedding and gave the belt back to R-Truth who pinned him during the ceremony.
WWE has posted video of the title changing hands on their Youtube channel and social media feeds and Maverick posted a tweet earlier on Friday, simply saying, “Worst Day Evah.”
Maverick wore that title everywhere for two days, including during his wedding ceremony. He was announced as married, went to walk back down the isle and ran right into a referee. He realized right away what was going on but before he could do anything, was rolled up by R-Truth.
Maverick apologized to his guests and new wife, yelled about losing the title and then immediately turned back into capture mode and chased R-Truth in an attempt to win the title back.
Maverick is Owed Big Props
To me, Drake Maverick needs to be given a lot of credit. Willing to invest so heavily in what he’s doing with the 24/7 Title, he let WWE use his wedding as the backdrop for a title change.
R-Truth has been the clear star of the new 24/7 Championship storyline, but Maverick isn’t far behind and for my money, one of the best parts of this title being introduced at all. He and Truth have made this must watch.
