List of WWE 24/7 Champions
The WWE 24/7 Championship is a professional wrestling championship created and promoted by the American professional wrestling promotion WWE. The championship is defended "24/7", as in any time, anywhere, as long as a WWE referee is present. Because of this rule, the championship is defended across all of WWE's brands: Raw, SmackDown, 205 Live, NXT, and NXT UK, as well as outside of regular WWE shows, often with videos posted on WWE's website and social media accounts. It is similar to the previous WWE Hardcore Championship, which also had a "24/7 rule".
The championship was introduced on the May 20, 2019, episode of Monday Night Raw, during which Titus O'Neil from Raw became the inaugural champion by securing the title belt first in a scramble involving several other wrestlers. The current champion is Elias, who is in his third reign. He won the title by pinning R-Truth backstage after attacking him with his guitar on the August 12, 2019 episode of Raw.
As of August 20, 2019, there have been thirty-six reigns between nineteen wrestlers. R-Truth has the most reigns at twelve. Only four wrestlers have held the title for longer than a day: current champion Elias, R-Truth, Maria Kanellis, and Drake Maverick, (who has the longest reign at 14 days. 13 as recognized by WWE). Jinder Mahal has the shortest reign for his first reign, which lasted only 11 seconds, as after winning the title, he immediately lost it back to R-Truth. WWE Hall of Famer Pat Patterson is the oldest champion, winning the title at 78 years old (also making him the oldest title holder in WWE history), while Cedric Alexander is the youngest, winning the title at 29. Former active WWE wrestler Kelly Kelly was the first of four women to have won the title. The Revival (Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder) are the only tag team to win the title, being recognized as co-champions.

The match was over in mere seconds when Elias caught Truth with a rollup that secured him the 24/7 Championship ... Elias almost got out of dodge, but Truth caught him on the outside and chased him under the ring with a referee in tow.
