Intercontinental Championship - Santino Marella

April 16, 2007 - July 02, 2007

The improbable happened in Italy, as Santino Marella became Intercontinental Champion on the April 16 Raw in Milan.

Marella answered Mr. McMahon's challenge, coming out of the crowd to face Umaga for the gold in what ended up as a No Holds Barred Match. It looked like the Samoan Bulldozer would destroy Marella, but Bobby Lashley took advantage of the stipulation to attack Umaga. After three vicious chair shots and a spear, Lashley put Marella on top of Umaga to gain the winning pinfall and send the WWE fans in Milan into a frenzy.
