• Reason Behind Success Of WWE 24/7 Title Segments
As we have noted before, the concept of the new WWE 24/7 Title has gone over with the fans big time and videos for this Title have drawn big numbers on WWE’s YouTube channel.
Below are the views for some of the recent WWE 24/7 Championship videos on WWE’s YouTube:
– R-Truth pins a sleeping Jinder Mahal on an airplane to win the 24/7 Title – 8.5 Million
– 24/7 Champion R-Truth gets trapped in a case: SmackDown LIVE, June 11, 2019 – 2.5 Million [More views than any other SmackDown video this week]
– R-Truth gets trapped in an elevator with 24/7 Title challengers: Raw, June 10, 2019 – 2.9 Million [More views than any other RAW video this week]
– R-Truth loses the 24/7 Title on the airport tarmac – 2.95 Million
According to Fightful, one of the reasons behind the success of the WWE 24/7 Title segments is that they aren’t as scripted as the rest of the segments on the shows:
“WWE is said to not be as strict or hands on regarding the scripting in these, which is what a lot of the people within the company we spoke to attributed to the success of the segments.”
