Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Christian recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of SI.com about various topics. Here are the highlights.
On AJ Styles wrestling at WrestleMania 33:
“I’m looking forward to watching AJ Styles’ match, no matter who he is wrestling. AJ had such a great year in the ring, and no one even came close to him. I would have liked to have seen him carry the title all the way to WrestleMania and have a chance to defend it, but he’s still my favorite guy to watch.”
On second season of The Edge and Christian Show:
“Season two is in development stages, so there is nothing definite in terms of a date,” said Christian. “We are laying out the content that’s going to go into the show, but I was also robbed in the ‘Chumpstain Challenge’ [trivia contest against Edge] and I’ll be looking to redeem myself in season two.”
On Edge saying that he wanted to have his retirement match with him at WrestleMania 28:
“Edge actually never told me about his plan,” said Christian. “It would have been amazing if we could have ended his career in a match together for the world title at WrestleMania. I ended up winning the world title after he, unfortunately, had to retire. I know he really wanted to be a part of that moment, and it was pretty cool. It almost meant more to him than it did to me when I first won. We both thought a lot alike. We always thought about this 24 hours a day, seven days a week. He was one of my biggest advocates and always looked out for me.”
