Mike Gaccio may be champion, but he’ll quickly learn that as much work he put in to get the title, it takes much more work to keep it!
- WWE 24/7 Championship Talent Relations Retribution: Mike Gaccio VS R-Truth; Truth wins and becomes the new WWE 24/7 Champion.
PLAY BY PLAY
Michael Gaccio visits the WWE Talent Relations office.
The Senior Account Manager for Global Sales & Partnerships has his still Bollywood sticker-covered WWE 24/7 Championship belt proudly on display, and his coworkers are so excited for him. They’re offering him a WWE wrestler contract, but they need to assess his athletic ability. R-Truth spots them through an open door! Mike is asked to give us some simple exercises, starting with push-ups. He gets five of those, then flips over for sit-ups. Truth hurries to get a ref and he covers Mike! Truth wins!!
Winner: R-Truth, by pinfall; NEW WWE 24/7 Champion
“Gimme that!” Truth says as he snatches the belt. “And you don’t need this!” Truth snatches the superstar contract! Truth runs away and the Talent Relations Department figures that’s that. Will Truth get out of Stamford before Mike’s 9-to-5 is over?
What did I say?! The rematch happened and it was great! I like the gag that they were considering making Mike Gaccio a wrestler, even if just in kayfabe. I’m surprised Mike didn’t see Truth in the doorway. But anyway, Truth is now a 23-TIME champion and has no signs of stopping now!
