R-Truth has been one of WWE’s comedic gems for years now and he shows no signs of letting up.
The 48-year-old was assigned to RAW during WWE’s 2020 brand draft this week and it looks like the 24/7 champion will be remaining on Monday nights for another year.
He kicked off his new stint with an appearance on the show that follows RAW on the WWE Network, RAW Talk.
Truth has become wildly entertaining on these chat shows and many superstars, no matter how serious their character, cannot help but laugh when the veteran gets going.
Shayna Baszler has been the victim of Truth before, but this time it was AJ Styles Truth tried to ruffle.
As you can see from the clip below, Truth wants to know if Styles really built the SmackDown house.
“I want to ask you something,” he began. “I know SmackDown was the house that AJ Styles built, but do you do condominiums, duplexes, two, three story houses?”
Styles targeted the host, Charly Caruso, saying: “Charly, you’re an enabler. That’s what you are. You know he’s talking nonsense and yet you continue to help him out with his nonsense.
“Condominiums, little homes – what? What are we doing here?”
Truth replied: “So you didn’t build the SmackDown house?!”
Styles said: “It’s the house that AJ Styles built but it doesn’t mean that I actually built it by hand. I’m saying it wouldn’t be what it is today without AJ Styles, that’s what I’m saying.
Truth: “Dawg, I was going to ask you for a card of something. That’s disappointing, man! That’s false advertising.”
Truth has enjoyed a long and successful career in WWE and has worked with guys like The Rock and Brock Lesnar at different points, and remains with the company for his ageless body and lovable personality.
Speaking to talkSPORT earlier this year, Truth explained how some of his famous 24/7 segments come to be.
“I’ve had a tremendous amount of fun,” he said. “Me and the guys, some of the writers, the talent, we just spitball. Some of the ideas I come up with, some of the ideas they come up with, some of the ideas we’re just sitting around together and come up with.
“Once an idea comes up, once it’s said and we laugh at it, then we do it.
“It’s that simple, man. If we’re entertained by it, then the people will be entertained by it.”
