As for who could be challenging next for the 24/7 Championship, Drake Maverick posted on Twitter after Raw that he was figuring out exactly where Truth is.

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley returned to Monday Night Raw this evening, as advertised, to introduce the fans to a brand new championship.

Much like the old Hardcore Championship, the 24/7 belt will be defended 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Foley announced as well that the title will be open to superstars from NXT, NXT UK, Raw, SmackDown Live and 205 Live rosters. Foley left the title laying in the ring, rang the bell, and announced the first man to grab the title would be the champion.

Ric Flair's Surgery Said To Have Been Successful

Formula One legend Niki Lauda dead, aged 70
He recalled "shaking with fear" as he changed into second gear on the first day of practice and thinking, "I can't drive". Lauda, who won three titles in 1975, 1977 and in 1984, has received two kidney transplants already in 1997 and 2005.

Jeremy Corbyn says Labour government talks had 'disagreements'
Conservative lawmakers within May's own party will spend the coming months jostling for positions. He added: "We've got to deliver Brexit in this parliament, then we can move forward".

The new WWE titles were teased on Sunday's Money in the Bank pay-per-view and Foley arrived early to Monday Night RAW holding the title in a sleeve.

The 24/7 title is an interesting new addition to WWE and one that could provide midcard talent in the company an opportunity to show what they can do when the spotlight is shined on them.

But who would be crowned the first champion?

The championship would be in circulation until 2002 when it was unified with the Intercontinental Championship. Roode had just won the title from the first champion, Titus O'Neil. He didn't hold onto it for long, though: Robert Roode came from the back while O'Neil was celebrating on the ramp, pinning Titus mere seconds after he'd claimed the prize.
