R-Truth recently appeared on Edge & Christian’s Pod of Awesomeness and revealed a wacky idea he had for the recent WWE 24/7 Title change at Drake Maverick’s wedding, which was nixed by Vince McMahon.
The title change at Maverick’s recent wedding to Renee Michelle saw Truth show up to take the belt. Drake won it back on this week’s RAW episode. Truth revealed that he originally had the idea of wearing a wedding dress to the ceremony, but he was told that Vince didn’t like the idea because the WWE Chairman felt like it came off as Truth trying too hard to be funny. Vince wanted the WWE veteran to just be himself.
Truth also revealed that much of the wedding title change segment was booked by WWE producer/coach Sarah Stock.
“Let me tell you about that day,” Truth recalled. (H/T to Fightful) “That was Sarah’s idea. Oh my God, that was so funny. Sarah Stock, she was there, and she was like, ‘Well…’, because at first, I was gonna do a wedding dress and Vince said, ‘No. No wedding dress. That sounds like he’s trying to be funny and tell Truth just be funny, be himself’
“And when he said that, I said, ‘Oh okay, cool. I see the point. No wedding dress’, and, Sarah was like, ‘So what do you have on?’ I said, ‘I got on some black jeans.’ She said, ‘Well I have a suit coat. We ordered a suit coat for you’, and she [asked] what if I go with no shirt on, and I laughed and I said, ‘You know what? I didn’t think about that because I laughed and you said that…’ I said it’s kinda crazy because everybody else is dressed at the wedding right? And she said, ‘Yeah, but R-Truth would probably do it with no shirt on’. She said, ‘I have a purple tie’. I said, ‘Just because you said that, I’m gonna wear it’ and she picked all that out. That was all her.”
