Cruiserweight Championship - Gregory Helms

January 29, 2006 - February 18, 2007

The Cruiserweight Championship Invitational at the Royal Rumble was open to former Cruiserweight Champions, opening the door for the man who eventually won the match and became new champion... RAW's Gregory Helms. The Tornado format meant that Kid Kash, Paul London, Jamie Noble, Funaki, Nunzio and Helms were in the ring at once, with only one man needing to be pinned. Helms used the circumstances to his advantage, dropping Funaki with a Shining Wizard and picking up the three count.
