Last weekend's Money In The Bank pay-per-view brought the promise that Mick Foley would unveil a new WWE championship one night later on Raw, and the 'Hardcore Legend' delivered, unleashing the 24/7 Title as the flagship show crept into its third hour.
Much like the old Hardcore Championship, the 24/7 belt will be defended 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It was part of Foley's plan to "make Monday Night Raw 'Raw again'", and a mad scramble brought a horde of midcarders to ringside to crown the first champion.
Titus O'Neil ended up escaping with the belt after tossing Drake Maverick out of the ring to picking up white might be the ugliest strap in WWE history. He didn't hold onto it for long, though: Robert Roode came from the back while O'Neil was celebrating on the ramp, pinning Titus mere seconds after he'd claimed the prize.
The gang of midcarders followed Roode to the back. He evaded the swam, then spent the rest of the night trying to avoid conflict, before R-Truth pulled him out of a car boot to grab the green and gold title.
A chaotic chain of events, and an example of what we can look forward to from this belt.
