R-Truth is used to keeping his head on a swivel during WWE shows when it comes to protecting the 24/7 Championship. Holding the title doesn't allow you a moment's peace, even if you're far away from the ring, however.

During a celebrity flag football game Saturday, 1984 Heisman Trophy winner Doug Flutie pinned R-Truth to capture the gold.

Of course, Flutie learned the hard way how becoming the 24/7 champion puts a big target on your back. His reign ended shortly after it started.

This is the fourth time the title has changed hands this week. Peter Rosenberg pinned R-Truth during the 2021 Royal Rumble telecast, only for Truth to respond in kind Monday during The Michael Kay Show.

Anybody who wants to come for R-Truth has had plenty of warning. You can't take away his "baby" without receiving some swift retribution.
