In case you avoid non-wrestling pop culture like the plague, here’s what you need to know. This song is as big as anything can get in an age where hits come from apps rather than radio. Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” (with and without Billy Ray Cyrus feature) has crossed over from TikTok to the airwaves, and become the top song in the U.S. and many other countries around the world.
As a wrestling fan, you already know that R-Truth and the WWE 24/7 championship are the hottest thing in the game. Many of the best parts of the saga of Truth’s run with the 7-11 European Television title have occurred online, and the champ being a hip-hop MC himself, he dropped his version of “Old Town Road” on Twitter yesterday (June 28).
To the surprise of absolutely no one, it’s awesome.
Opting for straw hats - for himself and the 24/7 belt - rather than Nas X’s preferred matte black, Truth sings about how he’s gonna hide til he can’t no more, and take his title to the SmackDown show.

It’s real to us, too, champ. Nice spurs, by the way.
