I guess some people aren’t fans. There are a lot of things going on in WWE at the moment and that means things move around in a hurry. WWE has had to get creative to come up with things for so many wrestlers to do and some of them are more popular than others. Some of them are designed to be comedy, and as it turns out, not every fellow wrestler likes that kind of entertainment.
One of the bigger surprises this year has been the 24/7 Title, which came into being in the spring and has turned into a rather successful running joke. Based on the strength of R-Truth’s comedy skills, the joke of a title has turned into a joke with some legs. R-Truth has been in some of the most ridiculous of situations and now some of those situations seem to have annoyed one of his fellow roster members.
This week on Monday Night Raw, R-Truth and Akira Tozawa traded the title on the streets of New York City, with Santa Claus also winning the title. During the show, fellow WWE Superstar and member of the SmackDown roster Drew Gulak sent out a tweet seemingly mocking the entire situation. Gulak said that R-Truth’s win, as he defeated Santa Claus, brought legitimacy to the title. The win marked R-Truth’s twenty fifth reign as champion since the title was introduced on May 20.

The antics were strong with this one. Check out the shenanigans in New York City:
Opinion: I’m not sure serious Gulak’s criticisms are, as there is no reason to believe that Gulak will be coming after the title anytime soon given the different brands. At the same time, Gulak is accurate in saying how this starting to feel repetitive. How many times can R-Truth roll someone up to get the title back before it stops meaning anything? I mean, we seem to have passed that months ago but WWE keeps going with it no matter what. The shelf life seems to be almost gone, but what happens with everyone after that?
