Just in time for the Super ShowDown show in Saudi Arabia, Jinder Mahal has won the 24/7 Championship from R-Truth.
Yes, Jinder Mahal is your new WWE 24/7 Champion. After trying and failing to keep the 24/7 Title at a golf course this past week, Mahal has officially won the championship from R-Truth just one day before the Super ShowDown event in Saudi Arabia.
As seen in the video above, Mahal pinned R-Truth on the airport tarmac as the WWE crews were heading out to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Mahal snuck off a plan while Truth was on the phone, rolled up the champ and stole the title, taking the belt back onto the plane.
Mahal is now a two-time WWE 24/7 Champion and will likely head into Super ShowDown as the champion. He is likely to get a rousing reception from the Saudi crowd if he goes into the PPV as the champion.
What This Means
Don't be shocked if more videos surface of the wrestlers on their way to Saudi Arabia. With a long flight ahead of them, there is plenty of time for the title to change hands again. Truth is a four-time champion and so far, the title seems to be about making him a comedic star. If there isn't footage from the flight, expect more regarding the championship to go down at the pay-per-view itself.
Hilariously, Drake Maverick continues to hunt down the championship, having yet to win it. He posted a social media tweet right after it was announced that Mahal had won it, saying he had a new target.
News about Friday's show continues to roll in. The 24/7 title changing hands isn't even the biggest news. That belongs to the women of WWE who might wind up with a match on the show.
