Reggie’s parkour performance, which was popular 20 years ago, was recently highlighted by WWE’s Vince Russo.
On the July 19, 2021 broadcast of RAW, the latter won the 24/7 Championship. Since then, he’s protected it by doing acrobatic acrobatics to elude any potential opponents.
Russo questioned why the entire 24/7 title scenario now focuses around something that isn’t exactly a new craze on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Legion of RAW.
“Wasn’t that [parkour] like 20 years ago? I mean, that’s what this is. That’s exactly what this is.” Russo continued, “The guy [Reggie] is jumping from golf cart to golf cart. That’s exactly what this is. And I’m like, ‘Bro, that was over like 20 years ago, no?'”
Reggie used to be an acrobat at Cirque du Soleil before joining WWE, which explains why he performs circus-like moves on TV every week.
Since the 24/7 title was founded in 2019, there have been a number of hilarious moments, the most of which feature R-Truth. However, many people believe that the entire scenario has become a bit redundant recently.
Such bits, according to the former WWE writer, pander primarily to younger audiences:
“It’s a kiddie scene, bro. It’s just a kiddie scene,” said Russo.
Dr. Chris Featherstone and Vince Russo explored a variety of other things from the most recent Monday Night RAW broadcast. In the video attached below, you may listen to their conversation:
What did Reggie do during this week’s WWE RAW?
Last week, Drake Maverick, who was a key figure in the 24/7 Championship race in 2019, returned to the main roster. It was clear early on that he would continue to appear in the 24/7 title parts in the future.
R-Truth, Akira Tozawa, and Cedric Alexander, among others, chased Reggie backstage during this week’s WWE RAW with the hopes of earning the title. He did, however, outsmart his opponents and win the championship.
Backstage, Drake Maverick chastised R-Truth and Tozawa for performing their 24/7 Championship chase poorly this week.
