Stevie Richards talks about the WWF Hardcore and WWE 24/7 titles

Sep 16, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

“I’ll tell you a funny story connected to that. The reason there’s so much confusion over the (Hardcore title) reigns – I’ve technically held it 22 times. Raven had held it 21 times. Raven went to the website, magazine, whatever media people there were and had that flipped. He would relentlessly bother them until it was changed. At the end of the interview, as good as a guy he is, [they would say] just give him what he wants and tell him to shut up. That has been a friendly point of contention between ourselves – but I have had it 22 times, he’s had it 21. In this day and age with the 24/7 title, it doesn’t even matter because it’s completely morphed into something else, but the best memory of the entire thing is what it was supposed to be designed for and what they’re trying to design it to do, but I don’t think they’re doing it as well as it was done back then, and that’s really use and incorporate everybody they haven’t been using to their fullest potential in the most entertaining way. Now it seems like a Keystone Cops thing, tons and tons of schoolboys, nothing interesting.”
