I know there has been alot of chat about him but he is my Fav. wrestler of all time I just want to lay down some of santinos life. He made his WWE debut when Umaga had a hand picked opponent selected by Vince McMahon. Santino was picked and won the WWE Intercontinental title in underdog fashion He was picked out of the crowed and now look at him he is the us champion shows alot this post is manily about dont judge a book by its color vince picked him because he thought he was a nobody. Shortly after gaining the Intercontinental Championship, Marella started a scripted rivalry with Chris Masters, narrowly retaining the title over him in his first defenses.
