Former NFL quarterback Doug Flutie wins and loses WWE 24/7 title
Former NFL quarterback Doug Flutie both won and lost the WWE 24/7 Championship on the Saturday of Super Bowl weekend.
During a halftime interview at Saturday’s Celebrity Sweat Flag Football Challenge, Flutie rolled up R-Truth to win the 24/7 title. R-Truth then rolled up Flutie to win the title back.
The celebrity flag football game aired live on ESPNews and also featured involvement from WWE’s Titus O’Neil, The Miz, and Cesaro.
Flutie was a star quarterback for Boston College in the 1980s and played in the USFL, CFL, and NFL before retiring in 2006.
This is R-Truth’s 49th reign as 24/7 Champion. After losing the title to radio personality and WWE pre-show panelist Peter Rosenberg at Sunday’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view, there was an angle filmed where R-Truth snuck into Rosenberg’s hotel room with a referee and won the title back while Rosenberg was live on air co-hosting The Michael Kay Show this Monday.
