WWE 24/7 Title Changes Hands At Flag Football Game

As is commonplace

48-time WWE 24/7 champion R-Truth is at least temporarily without the gold, as he lost the title during a celebrity flag football game taking place down in Florida, as part of Super Bowl weekend.

Truth, along with Titus O'Neil, The Miz, and Cesaro were on hand for the game, when the title suddenly changed hands during halftime.

Truth was pinned by one of his own teammates, former quarterback Doug Flutie. During the lull in action, Flutie suddenly ran up behind Truth and rolled him up for the pin.

The latest reign for R-Truth lasted just five days. He'd lost the belt to radio personality and WWE talking head Peter Rosenberg at Sunday's Royal Rumble, but regained it next day, when Rosenberg was appearing remotely on Michael Kay's simulcast talk show.

A professional quarterback for twenty years, Flutie is perhaps best known for a game-winning play he made while at Boston College in 1984, launching a 48-yard touchdown pass to defeat the Miami Hurricanes as time ran out.

In his career, Flutie won the Heisman Trophy in 1984, three Grey Cups in the Canadian Football League, and was the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year in 1998.

UPDATE: R-Truth subsequently defeated Flutie to regain the belt, making him a 49-time 24/7 champion.
