Christian will no doubt be added to be a triple threat
Christian v.s Edge. That alone is gonna make money man, they have so much history.
Del Rio v.s edge alone is bland.

If they don't involve christian....then that'll be one of the biggest fuckups ever

Christian will fued with Del Rio when he returns, what will be interesting is if Del Rio is already fueding with Edge, it could drag Christian into the title picture at WM.

They can easily end the feud at Elimination Chamber. Del Rio won't be in the EC match because he's the #1 contender already. Him and Christian can have their match there and be done with it. Christian could even reunite with Edge and team with him against ADR and Ziggler (or whoever) leading up to WrestleMania, but he won't be in the main event in any way shape or form. He'll probably be jobbing to someone younger in the MITB match or something.

It's painful to read this and know it's probably true, but I will keep hoping, and although it is most likely lost hope, it's my hope to lose.

I wish I could say otherwise, but this is pretty much spot on. Christian will be used to put Del Rio over. He will be someone for Del Rio to destroy to gain momentum leading into WM. It makes sense, it just sucks to hear something like that about one of your favourites.

As a 'Peep' I can tell that I'm evn more negative than I was before. Had Del Rio been eliminated I wouldn't have give much thought to Christian having a major match at Wrestlemania.
Exactly. Del Rio winning the Royal Rumble match makes Christian more insignificant than ever before, aside from the point of interest involving Christian's relationship with Edge, which Miz touched on last night on Raw.

To make it a simple mathematical formula, Del Rio was already like, a 5 in WWE's way of thinking back in September when the feud between he and Christian (which was only going to last a couple more weeks at best, everyone's acting like they were going to build it up to Wrestlemania or something), and Christian was, oh, let's be charitable and say he's a 3. Well, Del Rio, after winning the Royal Rumble and having a shot at a world championship at Wrestlemania, is now like, oh, I'd say he's safely an 8.

And Del Rio is now beginning a feud with Edge, who, let us say, is a 10 (meaningful number for him, too).

Nothing has happened to increase Christian's numerical value, aside from being mentioned in the program a little and a little there (and note how Striker called Christian Edge's "buddy," which immediately makes you think of a practically-defenseless sort of friend taken out by a bad guy, and last night on Raw, Miz called him Edge's "little buddy"--good grief).

8 > 3

Del Rio and Christian are on different levels now enitirely in WWE. They very well might cross each other's paths, I'd say it's safe to say there will probably be a match (on TV) between them, or maybe WWE makes Christian Del Rio's indentured servant after we discover that Christian took a bad risk in the stock market (I can't think of any storyline like that one), but the point is, they're hardly equals now, and they really weren't back in September.

Christian being inserted into this program as an equal out of the blue would be one of the biggest cases of charity from WWE that I've seen in a long time. Somehow, I don't see it happening. Christian was there for Del Rio's benefit, as Matt Hardy was there for McIntyre's benefit, as MVP was there for Miz's benefit (all by the time of these respective storylines). It was never about an actual battle of equals feud. It was about older wolves being eaten by younger ones.

So we're in agreement that Christian will, at best, be Hardcore Holly to Del Rio's Lesnar. That's perfectly reasonable in the short term although I have, since I was always a Holly fan, given some thought to how he could've been presented as a credible opponant for Brock and I'm sure I could do the same for Christian.

And to everyone who's making a big deal of Edge's use of Christian's finisher: it means nothing. Most likely, Christian was supposed to return at the Rumble before his rehab setback, Edge felt bad, and used Christian's move as an homage to his injured friend. Christian is fantastic, but we all need to move on, at least until next year's WM in Toronto. No chance of a significant role for Christian this year.
