WWE has posted video footage (view above) of R-Truth regaining the 24/7 Championship from Elias under the ring which did not not air on Tuesday’s episode of Smackdown Live.
R-Truth lost the 24/7 Championship against Elias in a 24/7 Lumberjack Match.

24/7 Lumberjack Match – R-Truth (c) vs. Elias
No other superstar will be able to pin the champion during the match. The bell rings and we are under way. R-Truth goes for the roll-up but Elias kicks out. Elias throws R-Truth to the outside as they start to stomp on him and throw him back in the ring. A knee to the face by Elias. He goes for the cover and gets the pin.

After the match, all the lumberjacks stand on the ring apron and get in the ring. They all attack Elias as he rolls to the outside of the ring. He crawls on the outside and faces R-Truth. He tries to run away and goes underneath the ring and R-Truth follows him along with the referee. The bell rings and we see R-Truth coming from under the ring holding the 24/7 title.
