Re: So...Why did Christian lose the World Title in 2011?
Vince doesn't like Christian and it was probably killing him on the inside that he put the belt on Christian in the first place (because of Edge's retirement and as a happy moment). So he wanted it off him as soon as possible and they did that popularity contest where Orton won by a landslide. The second reign probably came because he thought "I already gave him one reign, might as well give him another to prolong the feud until Henry is ready".
Sho'nuff is pretty on point with his post. The only bad part of what took place is Christian getting screwed. The way they did it, I think it would've been better if Christian kept the belt until Capitol Punishment or Money in the Bank so Orton would win it from there and use his star power to put over Henry after SummerSlam.
