“The Milan Miracle” – April 16, 2007

Santino came from the same humble beginnings as many a Superstar before him: he was a fan. And a lucky one, at that: not only did he score ringside seats to Raw in Milan, Italy, but Mr. McMahon himself plucked Marella from the WWE Universe and set up an impromptu match between Santino and the Intercontinental Champion, Umaga. Not short on gumption even then, Santino accepted The Chairman's challenge and, with a little help from Bobby Lashley, pinned the Samoan terror to capture the Intercontinental Championship. And he wasn't even officially a WWE Superstar yet. (PHOTOS)
