In April 2009, Reso won his first world championship in WWE, the ECW Championship, which he would win again in July of that year. He became the longest reigning ECW Champion in the WWE era and later went on the SmackDown brand capturing the World Heavyweight Championship in May 2011.
Overall, Reso has won 21 championships in WWE and TNA, which include being a five time world champion (two-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion, two-time ECW Champion, and one time World Heavyweight Champion), as well as a one time WWF Light Heavyweight Champion, one time WWF Hardcore Champion, one time WWF European Champion, three-time WWF/E Intercontinental Champion, and a nine-time World Tag Team Champion. In addition to these accolades, in May 2011 Reso became the twenty-third Triple Crown Champion and the eleventh Grand Slam Champion in WWE history.
