The 24/7 Championship was introduced on the May 20 episode of Monday Night Raw nearly five months ago, but the belt's lifespan may be cut short.
There will be plenty of changes to the WWE product now, with Fox now broadcasting SmackDown Live on Friday nights - and with AEW starting up its war with WWE last week. And one of those change could include the cancellation of the 24/7 Championship.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t Ringside News), explained that after reviewing the quarter hours of the Fox SmackDown premiere, it was clear that the 24/7 Championship segment wasn't working.
Meltzer talked about how the joke is the same old, same old on a weekly basis - although some people still get a kick out of it. He added that the thing had "run its course," after putting the 24/7 title on Carmella.
Now, Meltzer isn't saying that the 24/7 Championship will be scrapped, but he makes a strong point as to why the title could be scrapped in short time. The point of the title was clearly for the sake of humor, but storylines like this can only last so long in the WWE.
At Sunday's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, Tamina won the 24/7 title from Carmella - who had only obtained it two days earlier from Marshmello. Tamina's reign didn't last long, however, as Carmella helped R-Truth defeat her to regain the championship that's been his far more often than not.
Fox may not scrap the 24/7 Championship right away, but if their TV ratings aren't doing well during such segments, then they'll probably wind up scrapping it. So the other superstars better pursue R-Truth and the title while it's around.
The Title Shoud Be Scrapped Eventually
You just had the feeling that this championship wouldn't last long shortly after its introduction. WWE has put together its fair share of cheesy but humorous storylines over the years, but they're not built to last forever. As such, it wouldn't be a surprise if this title as retired in short time.
