Shelton Benjamin's 24/7 Title Win Was His First Singles Victory On WWE Raw Since December 2006

A lot has changed in 14 years...

On this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, Shelton Benjamin defeated R-Truth to capture the 24/7 Championship. He then joined The Hurt Business with MVP and Bobby Lashley and the three Superstars teamed together in a losing effort against Ricochet, Cedric Alexander and Mustafa Ali. 

The new 24/7 Champion had to wait an awfully long time for a singles win on the red brand as WWE Stats & Info revealed on Twitter this was Shelton's first victory in a one on one match since December 4, 2006, when he defeated Super Crazy. 

They tweeted: "New @WWE 24/7 Champ @Sheltyb803 scores a singles victory on #WWERaw by pinning former champ @RonKillings. It's Benjamin's first 1-on-1 win on #Raw since defeating Super Crazy in 2006... before iPhones were introduced, The Big Bang Theory premiered & Twitter started using hashtags."

In between his two victories, Benjamin amassed an 0-15 record, losing to the likes of Paul London, JTG and Apollo Crews. Much of his time was spent away from Monday nights, however, as he predominately competed on SmackDown or ECW until his WWE release in 2010. He returned to the company in 2017 but wholly wrestled on the blue brand until October 2019 when he was drafted to Raw.
