WWE added a new storyline to their TV shows this week on Monday Night Raw with the introduction of the WWE 24/7 Championship.
Revealed by Mick Foley, it was explained that the title could change hands at any place at any time so long as a referee was present to call the count, and that falls count anywhere, similar to the previous Hardcore Championship.
Foley announced as well that the title will be open to superstars from NXT, NXT UK, Raw, SmackDown Live and 205 Live rosters. Legends and Hall of Famers will be able to show up and win the title too.
Foley also added that the third hour of Raw each week will see the title be up for grabs, and we've already had three champions of the 24/7 title.
Titus O'Neil was the first champion of the title after he won a scramble that featured Drake Maverick, No Way Jose, EC3, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Mojo Rawley, Eric Young, and Cedric Alexander.

However, O'Neil was only champion for a short amount of time, as he was attacked and pinned by Robert Roode as he made his way back up the entrance ramp.
Roode was then seen running away from superstars backstage inside the arena, but then thanks to the help of R-Truth, he hid in the trunk of a car to get away from them.
R-Truth had a plan up his sleeve though, as he would end up pinning Roode in the parking lot to win the 24/7 Champion, the third champion of the title since it was introduced earlier in the night.
As for who could be challenging next for the 24/7 Championship, Drake Maverick posted on Twitter after Raw that he was figuring out exactly where Truth is.
The 24/7 title is an interesting new addition to WWE and one that could provide midcard talent in the company an opportunity to show what they can do when the spotlight is shined on them.
It will be interesting to see how many times the title changes hands tonight on SmackDown and if any NXT stars are able to win it later this week.
It will also be interesting to see if any legends like Goldberg or The Undertaker or if any Hall of Famers will pick up the title when WWE hosts their Saudi Arabia show, Super ShowDown, next month on June 7.News Now - Sport News
