On Sunday, a WWE Championship changed hands.
And then changed hands again.
Jinder Mahal brought a referee with him to a golf course on Sunday, where the WWE Superstar ambushed and attacked R-Truth while he was trying to have a “relaxing Sunday” with Carmella. Mahal managed to score a pin fall victory over Truth, claiming the new WWE 24/7 Championship.
The reign for Mahal would only last for a couple of seconds, however, as Truth rolled Mahal up from behind for a three-count of his own before grabbing the 24/7 Championship belt and fleeing the scene.
WWE.com released the following regarding the non-televised title changes on Sunday afternoon:
R-Truth regains the 24/7 Title after golf course scrap with Jinder Mahal
There is no rest for the weary. With the mad dash surrounding his 24/7 Championship, R-Truth found it impossible to sneak in a moment of rest and relaxation on the golf course this weekend.
Despite seeking refuge on the fairway, Truth was attacked by Jinder Mahal, who brought a referee along to record the three-count. However, The Modern Day Maharaja’s celebration was cut short when Truth surprised him with a roll-up pin – thanks in large part to a distraction by Carmella – to regain the championship and escape across the green.
Can Truth keep the prize through the rest of the weekend?
Check out video of the Mahal and Truth title changes below.
