• Cody Rhodes & Young Bucks Bury WWE 24/7 Title
During a Q&A at Starrcast II, Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks were asked their thoughts on the WWE 24/7 Championship.
Below is what they said:
Cody: “Let’s be fair – we all love Mick Foley, everyone loves Mick Foley. I felt so bad…he’s standing out there. He’s a living legend…what the f*** was he holding? Like no thought — no thought went into that like ‘what is it?’ — ‘oh, it’s 24/7’ — ‘so what do you put on it? 24/7’ Like no thought.”
Nick Jackson (of The Young Bucks): “Here’s another thing our titles are gonna look good. Good lord. I saw a graphic of that new title and I almost threw up.”
