Immediately announces first "official" title defense will be at the 2003 Royal Rumble.
In a promotional coup, Vinny Mac becomes Tyson's new promoter and Iron Mike re-energizes the WWE by simultaneously holding the WBC/WBA/IBF and the newly acquired WWE title (shows up at PPV and demands title match from the Undertaker--no sells the Tombstone and bites Taker on face then KO's him).
Once he eventually loses the boxing titles, his transition to exclusively wrestling will be seamless. Put him in a monster heel faction with Goldberg, RVD and Jericho that threatens the power axis of Austin/HHH/Undertaker/Rock.
McMahon makes tons of money, Tyson's personal money woes are solved and the WWE gets a new top dog.

I had the exact same gut reaction, but I suppose it could be debated that it depended on Andre's weight WHEN he had the belt. He was billed anywhere between 375 and 500 pounds or so if I remember correctly.
