LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — It was all but assured that something wild would go down in the first-ever “Mosh Pit Mixed Tag Team Match” in which 24/7 Champion R-Truth teamed with Carmella to defend his title against Drake Maverick & Renee Michelle. And sure enough, the bout lived up to its unique name when the 24/7 hopefuls — who had surrounded the ring in anticipation of the match’s end — made their move once Truth pinned Maverick to retain his title. What followed wasn’t so much a mosh pit as a dog pile, but the eagle-eyed referee made the count and recorded a victory for Mike Kanellis.
The new champion grabbed his title and darted up the ramp, but he quickly found he wouldn’t get a moment’s peace — not from the mob, and certainly not from his wife Maria. After Mike holed up in a locker room, Maria convinced him to let her in by verifying her identity with some truly emasculating insults and then twisted the knife even deeper, forcing her husband to lie on the ground in yet another display of dominance so she could pin him with one foot. Maria gleefully strutted out of the locker room (accurately) proclaiming herself the first pregnant 24/7 Champion and, therefore, all but untouchable by all the would-be titleholders surrounding the locker room, unless they wanted to try and pin her at her forthcoming OB-GYN appointment. Judging by the expressions on the faces of Titus O'Neil, EC3, Heath Slater and the like, they had finally stumbled upon a line they weren't ready to cross, and the question now is this: If you want to be 24/7 Champion, how do you solve a problem like Maria?
