Now i may be the only card carrying member of the "Christian Rocks" society but i'm damn disappointed that he has no apparent match set up for Mania, besides his probable involvement with Jericho's match.
Last year his match with DDP stole the lower card in terms of excitement, workrate, crowd involvement and original movesets and i'm really hoping that he's involved in his own match and doesn't get shunted out of Mania because of them having no room for him.
i can't see any opponent he can step in against other then test and i don't mind that but he really is a whole calibur above test.
Of course if the WWE decides to throw a match out their purely for enjoyment purposes (mine, namely) then you really can't do better then
CHRISTIAN V THE HURRICANE!
their interactement would be golden because these two tell a story in the ring so much better then most wretlers out there.
other then that i can't see them making any match for him and that ain't kosher
...But remember this. ROCK...CRUSHES...SCISSORS...but scissors cuts paper...and paper wraps rock...KIFF, we have a conundrum. (Yes, eat all of our shirts!)
I'm a big Christian fan... but I don't see any reason for him to be at Wrestlemania this year.
From what I've seen of him, he looks as if his heart hasn't really been into it much this past year. I can't really judge, though, as I'm not him. But, his matches have been less than spectacular... and he isn't really over with the audience... so... what would be the point of having him there this year?
Maybe if he gets over with the fans again and gets his wrestling together, he'll have a good spot on the card next year. Just as long as he keeps his job, though, I'll be happy...
The only place I can see for Christian at WrestleMania is perhaps a Heat match against Test or Jeff Hardy, as it appears neither of them are going to be on the card either. I say have a Raw v. Smackdown Battle Royal with some sort of stipulation like "the winner gets free agent status" or something like that. That way, everybody gets on the card.

That would be great, you can really tell he's trying to get the ass cream as if it was the World Championship or something. Then when he finally gets it he celebrates like crazy. Then he realizes everyone is watching and tries to play it off acting as if it's no big deal.

And give MORE immunity to Test?! (face it, he'd win)
Christian will be at Wrestlemania, and you better believe he'll be working hard! Of course, that's only if you count 'Cheerleading' as hard work. But dammit, for cheerleader workrate, he'll be busting ass just as good as Stacy, maybe even up there with the likes of Sable!!!

At this point and at least until WM, keep Christian with Jericho. They complement each other way too well. Any thought to if Christian can get over as a face? As good as Hurricane vs. Christian would be, it's been done several times since the Split. I'd maybe have him cost Jericho the match at WM somehow. Not intentional of course. Next night on Raw and Jericho confronts Christian. Then he beats the hell out of them. Either that night or the next week, Christian vs. Jericho. Christian loses and heads to Smackdown, possibly trying to find out who did the job on his bro Edge.
I think Christian's character could work as a face, in the same way as when Jericho was a face and making fun of everyone. However, I don't know if Christian's in-ring work translates well to being a face.
Christian works well as Jericho's lacky and it adds to Jericho's character. Christian-Test or Christian-Jeff Hardy at Mania would make sense.
Ass Cream on a Pole is comedy gold just waiting to happen though.
I have to be the biggest Christian fan on the planet. I'm 27 years old and my girlfriend got me a Christian action figure for my birthday if that tells you anything.
The guy is gold on the mike, often stealing backstage segments with one line. He's proven time and again he can go in the ring. I'm not calling conspiracy or anything, but I don't think the WWE wants him to succeed. I think he was supposed to be the guy who came up with Edge, they get over, they split and then the big Edge push happens and I don't even think they had planned on Christian being in the fed still at this point.
Think about this, put Christian in Edge's spot doing everything exactly the same as Edge and it works. Edge is a vanilla face that they shoved down our throats and we accepted because he can work. (No knock on Edge) They could (and should) do the samething with Christian, but they just don't want to for some reason.
This is where not having the Intercontental or European titles around hurts. THat would give Christian something to do...covet a title. Why can't Christian be on the same level as Jericho? When Edge and Christian were massively over as a heel tag team tehy worked main events with guys like Taker, HHH, Rock (who can forget the Undefeated-against-The-Rock-In-KEntucky streak) and Austin all the time.
Yeah, his ringwork has been pretty lackluster, but why should he go out there and rick his health when it is obvious the WWE is not going to give him the opportunity to become a big time singles star. At least give him a shot. He's better on the mic than Edge, and i would say ringwork wise he's about equal. The only thing holding him back -- Edge is their picked prettyboy from 98. They've been hounding him and Test as "The future of the WWF" so they will never give up on them.
Sorry this is so long, but its kind of a sore subject with a huge Christian fanatic such as myself.

I remember that. But it went more like
"Santa" Dust: Her you go, Christian!
Christian: "New and Improbed Ass Cream"? Real mature!
"Santa" Dust: Now with MOOOOOORE ASS!
Christain: Hey, it wasn't MY Ass Cream! It was Jericho's!
"Santa" Dust leaves, Christian cradels the jar and leaves.
Christian to Helms, while investigating the Dudleys' stealing his and Jericho's ring gear.

Well Mr. Burns had done it. The power plant had won it. With Rogers Clemens clucking all the while. Mike Scioscia's tragic illness made us smile. While Wade Boggs lay unconscious on the barroom tile. We're talkin'... Softball. From Maine to San Diego. Talkin'... Softball. Mattingly and Canseco. Ken Griffey's grotesquely swollen jaw. Steve Sax and his run-in with the law. We're talkin' Homer... Ozzie and the Straw.
If u remember Christian used to be on Smackdown before jumping ship to Raw with storm as tag champs. So really he should of stayed there because he suited it, and with the cruiserweight title there and alot of competition for it, it would be the best for him to be there. I'd like him to switch next week and apear on smackdown come from crowd and beat Matt Hardy. Challenge him for the cruiserweight title at WM and see how it goes from there. Christian deserves it since he has been in many classic matches at WM and they need to pay him back. That is my view of what should happen
"..... the spirit of the Undertaker lives in the souls of all mankind ..... the eternal flame of life that can not be extinguished ..... the origin that which can not be ..... the answer lies with the ever lasting spirit ...... soon all mankind shall witness the rebirth of ...... the ........ UNDERTAKERRRRR!!! ..... I WILL NOT REST IN PEACE IN PEEEAAAACCCCEEEE .........."
I forget the quote, but my favorite was when Hugh Morris was making fun of Edge and Christian said something to the effect of, "Edge doesn't care. People have been making fun of his stupid name for our entire lives."
I didn't really notice them editing the strikes on Kennedy/Tatanka. Would you care to expound so that I might understand what you mean? Also, JBL losing his shit over Vito was indeed wondrous. Fun report! :)
