R-Truth made WWE history at Clash of Champions when he defeated Drew Gulak to re-capture the WWE 24/7 Championship.
Truth, who lost the WWE 24/7 Championship earlier in the broadcast, began his 40th reign with the gold at WWE’s latest pay-per-view taking him to 45 WWE Championship reigns in total. He is officially the first WWE Superstar in history to reach this milestone.
R-Truth (@RonKillings) is now a… wait for it…

Along with his 40 WWE 24/7 Championship reigns, Truth is also a former two time WWE United States Champion defeating The Miz (WWE Monday Night Raw, May 24th, 2010) and Shinsuke Nakamura (WWE SmackDown Live, January 29th, 2019), WWE Tag Team Champion with Kofi Kingston defeating Primo and Epico (WWE Monday Night Raw, April 30th, 2012) and two time WWF Hardcore Champion as K-Kwik defeating Raven both times (WWF House Show, February 3rd, 2001).
For a talent considered a lower mid-card player, the achievement is the quite the feat.
The 20 year WWE veteran made his WWF debut as K-Krush in the Dark Match of the April 29, 2000, WWF Jakked with a victory over Scott Vick.
He made his official WWF television debut as K-Kwik, the partner of Road Dogg on the November 16, 2000, SmackDown. The duo defeated Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn.
Everyone at Inside the Ropes offers their congratulations to R-Truth on his historic milestone.
