Finally ... The Rock ... has come back ... to San Jose!
And he came back in style, winning the WCW Championship on August 19, 2001, by pinning Booker T in the main event of SummerSlam, on this date in WWE history.
The Rock, who dropped the WWF title to Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania X-Seven prior to his departure to film "The Scorpion King," had returned from his Hollywood hiatus just a few weeks prior to the SummerSlam pay-per-view event to work a program with Booker T as part of the "Invasion" angle.
They did not disappoint.

Spinarooni, to kick-up, to Rock Bottom, to pin.
As good as it gets.
