WWE 24/7 Champion was recently ‘ambushed’ by former Champion Drake Maverick. The reigning Champion was in a recording studio making tracks for his latest album. Maverick, however, who saw the recording session as a chance for him to win back the 24/7 title.
Maverick actually disguised himself as a piano player in Elias’ band. He then motioned for a referee to enter the scene as Elias was distracted. The rouse didn’t work, however. Elias prevented the roll-up from Maverick to retain his title. The reigning Champion then booted the 205 Live General Manager out of the studio.
Elias’ current reign as champion sits at 4 days. He’s 3 days away from passing Maria Kanellis as having had the 3rd most days spent with the title.
- R-Truth – 61 combined days as champion.
- Drake Maverick – 16 combined days as champion.
- Maria Kanellis – 7 days spent as champion.
- Elias – 4 days spent as champion.
This is Elias’ 3rd run with the belt but the first time his reign has lasted more than a day.
