In a backstage segment on tonight’s episode of RAW, MVP was telling 24/7 Champion R-Truth that he’s the new United States Champion.

R-Truth said Apollo Crews is still the US Champion and then suddenly got attacked from behind by Shelton Benjamin, who has now officially joined MVP’s Hurt Business stable.

Benjamin brought a referee with him and pinned R-Truth to win the WWE 24/7 Championship.

This is Shelton’s first title win in WWE after 12 years. He last won the United States Championship back in 2008.
