Re: Will christian retire soon?

That's a hard question to answer, as I would think that Christian himself is the only one who has an idea of when he would like to hang it up. That having been said, as a fan of his, my personal opinion is that Christian is probably aiming to win the world title again and he would probably like to stick around and help get some of the younger talent over. Christian is still very good in the ring, one of the best, and as far as we know, he is in good health, so I think that he still has a few good years left in him.

Re: Will christian retire soon?

Well, it's tough question to answer, but I think Christian still has enough in the tank to go when it matters. He's hardly on his last legs or anything. Even if WWE only gets a year or two out of him in some capacity, that's still a window of opportunity to profit from it. You don't spurn the hand that feeds you. Christian has a great presence in front of live crowds. He's a tremendous performer, and he's pretty much shown that any time they've given him a mic and allowed him to speak. If the guy is capable of drawing any interest or money with his words, then you utilize that. So long as the guy remains healthy and is capable of working to an acceptable standard, then he'll probably still perform for few more years.

Re: Will christian retire soon?

He should go in the ring for about 3 more years at least. Hopefully he gets a decent title reign, though. He has never defended his title successfully and he's a TWO TIME WHC.

I think he can go for another 5 to 7 years, if he wants to. Christian's almost 38 while guys like Kane who's 44 are still performing, granted Kane's "injured". Christian just gets better with age so I don't expect him to retire soon unless he is forced to. Min 3 years, max 7 years imo.

I agree and even after wrestling, he'll probably still be involved with the WWE.
Like a commentator, GM, or can even contribute in the creative department.



But for the moment.. Christian's too busy being the greatest I.C. Champion ever.

It's a shame Edge has gone on record saying that he wouldn't take a commentary job because Edge and Christian on commentary would be amazing.

That would be like the best thing to happen to WWE after Christian retires.

I watched this interview Edge was in right before the appreciation night and it feels like he doesn't wanna do anything with the WWE anymore.
Edge said when he came out at Summer Slam in front of all the cheering, he felt like he'd rather be at home.
That's kinda harsh but one thing I learned was he really wanted a match against Christian, that it was one thing he regretted not having.
He even said a match against Christian at WM would have made him happier than a win he got to defend his title.
He also said Christian winning the WHC made his retirement feel a lot better.

Seeing how close E&C are, this commentating thing would be perfect.
And WWE can let them act like the good all days. The only problem is they would out-entertain the wrestlers.
I know I wouldn't even be concentrating on anything that's happening and would just be listening to them talk.

Re: Will christian retire soon?

well, i see him being around for about another three to five years and then he will retire. what i would LOVE to see is him retire in a few years after he loses to Undertaker at wrestlemania for the WHC.

this is what i would love to see.

Christian is world champ for a while, Undertaker challenges him for the title due to winning a #1 contenders match against Mark Henry on the PPV before The Royal Rumble, Christian cheats and wins. He tells Taker that he will never get another shot, then when Undertaker wins the Royal Rumble he challenges Christian for the WHC but he adds the stipulation that who ever beats the other, the other person will have to retire. in the weeks prior to wrestlemania they have a "pick your poison" match and Christian chooses Mark Henry and Undertaker chooses Sheamus! they each beat their opponent, and then comes the contract signing. Undertaker and Christian signs it, they look each other in the eyes and Christian cheap shots Undertaker with the belt. then, Undertaker wins after a very long hard fought battle and Christian retires!
