WWE will introduce a new Championship title on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw from the Times Union Center in Albany, NY.
WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley will be on hand to unveil the new title. According to sources in WWE, the new championship will have a “24/7” aspect to it, similar to the Hardcore Championship of the Attitude Era.
This news has surprised fans as there has been no such update in recent times and there has been no discussion of introducing a new belt from the company either.
However, the choice of the WWE legend to introduce the belt is very interesting as Foley is mostly known for his hardcore style of wrestling.
A new belt like that could help the mid-card, allowing WWE to build new storylines around the talents which are not main event caliber and often find themselves working meaningless filler matches on the show.
Though how effective a hardcore title will be in the current PG rating is something fans have been wondering about, and it’d be interesting to see if the company actually re-introduces the Hardcore Title on this week’s Raw as the speculations suggest.
