Five years ago today, a "fan" who was handpicked from the Italian crowd by Vince McMahon himself was placed in a No Holds Barred match against then-Intercontinental Champion Umaga, with the title on the line. With some help from an interfering Bobby Lashley, this unidentified fan went on to win the prestigious title in a shocking fashion.
This "fan," of course, would later be known as Santino Marella.
Since that point in time, Marella has embarked on a successful career in WWE both as a heel and a face while capturing gold on more than one occasion. Despite always being a mid-card talent, Marella has become one of the more popular wrestlers in the company due to his likable and humorous personality and antics.
In light of this special anniversary, I'll highlight the top 15 moments in the WWE career of Santino Marella over the course of the last five years. One can only assume that these moments are only the beginning of Marella's tenure going forward.
