Christian had no chance to win. WWE killing the push by moving him to Smackdown was awful though. Could have kept him credible till it was time to put the strap on him.

Probably would give it the same rating. It's a real enjoyable match. And if we're going to play fantasy booking for a second, then I would of had Christian win. Christian was at his absolute PEAK at the time, his Captain Charisma character was the best thing in wrestling at the time imo, he was over, was moving merchandise, in addition to being a great talker and worker, I think they could of had Christian win the belt and only hold for a month or two, drop it back to Cena, and it wouldn't of hindered Cena's rise to the top AT ALL.

Certainly not, but the plan was set in motion for it to be Jericho to challenge John-boy and depart from the company. I know fantasy booking is what you were referring too, and I would be right there with you, I'm only trying not to excite myself with the ever popular WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN awesomeness again. I do it far too much as it is. Mostly with Eddie Guerrero & Owen Hart. </3.

Yeah. Christian seemed filler in the feud when he shouldn't of been. Christian and Cena had an issue with each other since The 2005 Royal Rumble, and not to long later when Cena was drafted to RAW, his issue with Christian resumed on that Highlight Reel episode. But when Jericho's surprise heel turn happened, nearly all the focus was placed on Jericho/Cena and Christian seemed lost in the shuffle. They continued with Cena/Jericho up until Jericho left, and they threw Christian away like trash by sending him over to Smackdown and booking him worse on there. Christian's last match in the company before he left was on Velocity, it's no wonder he left, they really dropped the ball on him at the time.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Christian should have won that 6 man match on SD for the SD title, before Batista was revealed as the last draft pick bringing over the WHC. Start a feud between those two, have JBL come into it to lengthen it a bit, then eventually give Christian the belt towards the end of the year. Oh man, Christian Vs Undertaker for the WHC in 06? YES PLEASE.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Christian was in the thick of it, until post Vengeance. That's all the program was apparently for. Which leads us to ask why build him up only to lower him by the time he got to Smackdown. Why wasn't he a top contender vs Batista? I know the Hassan plan fell through. Perfect timing for Christian to swoop in. Latter months with Eddie involved could have still left Christian on top. It's bogus. The final straw was if fans would vote for him at Taboo Tuesday. They didn't. Which he probably knew would occur. So he split. It was for the best at the time. Only, it seems pardon 2009, Vince isn't intent on using him on a much bigger main event level. Tis a shame. His work in 2009 should have proven to Vince that he can both draw and work on the level of a main event capacity.

At least he got the World Championship twice. Say what you will about how long each were. He still got them. Those moments can't be replaced.

Wasn't really hard to main-event on ECW. It being the clear C show at the time, beneath both RAW and Smackdown (in credibility of course, I'm not talking about match quality at the time). He was booked well on ECW, but the show wasn't really a big deal. And yes his work was great then, it should of showed Vince, but I wouldn't be surprised if Vince wasn't paying much attention to ECW at all at the time. Christian should of been the one to retire the belt when ECW finished, but they just had to give that honor to Ezekiel Jackson.

Think about where Ezekial Jackson is now and remember that he was the last ECW Champion.
