Backstage WWE news on who came up with 24/7 title change idea at Drake Maverick’s wedding

As noted earlier, R-Truth was at Drake Maverick’s wedding on Thursday and he pinned him to become the WWE 24/7 Champion once again. There were hints on WWE TV that this was going to happen because Maverick’s wedding was mentioned on TV and they made sure to mention that EC3 would be his groomsman.

PWInsider reports that Maverick was the person who made the pitch to have a “match” during his wedding and the company loved the idea. There was an actual ceremony and then they shot the title change with WWE writer Joseph Belcastro playing the role of the pastor.

As noted on Thursday, several WWE stars were in attendance for the wedding including Braun Stroman and EC3 as groomsmen. Other WWE personalities that were there as guests were Matt Hardy, Reby Hardy, Tyson Kidd, Natalya and Jeremey Borash. Kiera Hogan and former Impact Wrestling star Diamante were also there.

There was some additional footage filmed that has not aired yet.
