• Reason Behind R-Truth Not Working WWE Super ShowDown 2019

Current (and 5 time) WWE 24/7 Champion R-Truth was in Saudi Arabia, but wasn’t used at yesterday’s WWE Super ShowDown 2019 PPV.

Fans wondered why R-Truth wasn’t a part of the 50 man Battle Royal and Wrestling Observer noted WWE didn’t put him in the match because then they would have to book everyone to try to become the 24/7 Champion by pinning Truth and not care about the Battle Royal (where the winner would have won nothing).

As we noted before, Truth regained the 24/7 Title by pinning Jinder Mahal when Mahal was sleeping during a flight.
