It was a thing of the past. No point in bringing it back.

The 24/7 rule was about as awesome as the Hornswoggle/Chavo feud so no, they absolutely should not bring it back

The title wouldn't work in this era, but even back in the Attitude era when they implemented the 24/7 rule it pretty much cheapened it. It could have had a better legacy if it was defended like other titles. It became a comedy belt, with the rule change.

As a kid watching it, I use to absolutely love it so would be nice to see it back somehow...

My favourite memory of it was them fighting through a kiddies park bit with the plastic ball pit and everything

I remember when Steve Blackman held onto it for what seemed like forever when I started watching. It seemed like a good belt, except when they decided to make it change hands dozens of times. It was certainly more fun than some of the midcard titles today. <_<

The biggest problem with the 24/7 ruling became apparent very quickly - when you have that ruling in place, booking hardcore title matches on the show becomes pointless because for the champ, life is one big match anyway - and so many guys would run out and try to win the belt during the match.

It got to the point that Crash was having matches for his belt but not completing any of them - just running away. Would have been a better idea if they made the rule right away that during hardcore title matches - no one else could pin the champ.
