ECW Championship - Rob Van Dam

June 13, 2006 - July 04, 2006

At ECW One Night Stand, Rob Van Dam defeated John Cena to win the WWE Championship. Prior to the match, RVD said he would rechristen it as the ECW World Championship if he won; however, on the debut of ECW on Syfy on June 13, Paul Heyman simply awarded him the ECW Championship to make Rob a double champion. As such, this is recognized as the official re-activation of the ECW World Championship.
