WWE’s new 24/7 Championship changed hands twice over the weekend on the golf course

World Wrestling Entertainment introduced a new championship a few weeks ago, creating the 24/7 Championship that joins the likes of the Universal Title, the WWE Championship, the Intercontinental Title and the Raw and Smackdown Women's Titles and Tag Team Titles, as well the interbrand Women's Tag Team Titles in the promotion's available belts.

When the 24/7 title was introduced, fans were told the champion would have to be able to defend the title anywhere, anytime, provided a challenger showed up with a WWE referee to officiate the match.

R-Truth has established himself as a multi-time 24/7 champion in the title's brief existence, taking the mantle of having to be the always-on champion and killing the promotion of the title on social media. He took that a step further over the weekend, on a golf course of all places.

R-Truth and running buddy Carmella were on a driving range, talking about R-Truth's long-standing love of the game -- claiming to have been taught by Philly Mickelson, who is "like an uncle" -- as a means of relaxing. He was hoping to enjoy some quiet time, not having to have eyes in the back of his head to defend the 24/7 title. No such luck, as former WWE champion Jinder Mahal shows up with a referee to attack R-Truth, secure a pin and win the title.

That was temporary.

Carmella distracts Mahal as Truth recovers, who then school boys the Modern Day Maharaja to get a three count and regain his title. Then Carmella and Truth hop in the golf cart and drive away.
