Elias wins his first title in WWE

The long, storied 24/7 title reign of R-Truth is over.

Thanks to Drake Maverick chasing him throughout the Bok Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Truth and his 24/7 championship found himself in the wrong place this week on SmackDown. Right in the middle of what was dubbed as ‘Shane McMahon Appreciation Night’, Truth interrupted McMahon, Elias, and Drew McIntyre celebrating all things Shane-O-Mac.

Sure Truth successfully pinned and defended his title from Maverick but it was the post-match celebration that cost the 24/7 champion.

Poor Truth.

Following McMahon, McIntyre, and Elias taking him out, Truth was covered by Elias.

Elias becomes the fourth person to hold the WWE 24/7 Championship and it marks the first time The Drifter has held any main roster gold.

Excited for what Elias will do with the 24/7 title?
