This. So many people on here have rose-tinted glasses for Christian. I don't ever remember him being THAT popular- he was probably at his best in 2005 but he was nowhere near on the level of Cena and Batista and he never will be (like it or not). I have never once seen Christian as a mainstay main eventer.
I'd say Kane and Finlay deserved it most during that time- Finlay was great on his run and had some great matches. It is a shame he had to play second fiddle to King Booker but Booker certainly deserved a world title run too.
