Most Extreme Player for 4/20/07
This week's MEP is our new Intercontinental Champion Santino Marella. This native of Milan who grew up in Canada was simply home visiting family when he pulled off what may have been the biggest upset in the history of sports-entertainment. Of all the WWE fans attending Raw, Mr. McMahon made the worst choice possible when selecting this one to challenge Umaga. With an assist from ECW World Champion Bobby Lashley, this former unknown won a coveted championship once held by such greats as Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, The Rock, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Triple H and many more. One week ago, nobody knew his name.
Today, millions of WWE fans around the world are singing the praises of the new Intercontinental Champion, Santino Marella.
