WWE News: 78-year-old becomes the oldest title holder in WWE on the historic episode of WWE Raw Reunion this Monday night.
The WWE hosted an episode of Raw that was flooded with appearances from yesteryears stars. Names such as Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold and Ric Flair graced the show. Almost every big star from the Attitude Era and before made an appearance on the show to make it a grand spectacle.
The underlying story of the night was the 24/7 championship being tossed around like a hot potato. R-Truth walked in as the champion but soon lost the title to Drake Maverick who used his wife as a distraction to prise the belt away from Truth.
The 205 live general manager ran away with the belt not knowing what was in store for him. Maverick then came one on one with Boogeyman, who spooked the lights out of him. Minutes later, WWE Hall of Famer and the first ever Intercontinental Champion, Pat Patterson walked into the room. He kicked Drake around a little before pinning him to become the new 24/7 champion. He became the oldest person to ever hold a championship in the WWE in the process.
THIS. JUST. HAPPENED.

At age 78, Pat Patterson has knocked off Fabulous Moolah’s long-standing record. Moolah had previously won the WWF Women’s Championship at the age of 76. Patterson now holds the distinction and it is unlikely that this will record be broken in the near future.
Patterson didn’t hold on to the title for long though. He dropped the title to Gerald Brisco who in turn lost the title to Kelly Kelly. By the end of the night, the championship was back around R-Truth’s waist once again.
