In the final bout of Raw’s tournament to determine the rightful holder of the seemingly vacant WWE Championship, Rey Mysterio pinned The Miz to attain the coveted title for the very first time in his career. The Ultimate Underdog accomplished this impressive feat by dialing up the 619 and hitting the diving splash, preventing The Cleveland Screamer from ushering in a second “Era of Awesome” at Virginia’s Hampton Coliseum.
