Edge’s Interview With WWE Magazine (June 2011)

If you’ve picked up the newest issue of WWE Magazine, you’ll see that recently retired Edge has a featured interview. In that interview, Edge mentioned Christian several times and I’ve taken the time to write up those questions and answers, feel free to check them out below and if you want to read the interview in full, be sure to pick up the June 2011 issue on newsstands now.

You’re taking an interest in WWE’s younger talent, but you failed to mention your one-time protégé, Zack Ryder. Have you seen the Web series, “Z! True Long Island Story”?

No, I have not. As I’ve fully admitted in the past, I’m not and Internet guy. I would like to take the time now to say that I don’t have a Facebook page. My mom is very bothered by the world of Facebook and people claiming to be me online. I don’t get too worked up about it, but it really gets Christian hot on Twitter. He calls out people who say they’re Edge. But back to Zack – I think he’s a very underutilized Superstar on the roster, and I feel the same about Curt Hawkins, too. I’d like to showcase what the can do and remind everyone who may have forgotten about them.

What piece of WWE memorabilia do you have at home that you probably shouldn’t own?

I see your point – if I give it away, they might ask for it back, huh?! Well, there are a few things, and we’ll leave it at that. I don’t have the actual Rated-R title. I have the replica one that anyone can buy. Another thing that I wish I still had is the King Of The Ring trophy I won in 2001. It’s probably the one trophy in WWE that’s never been smashed. Sure, it was thrown into my mid-section by Christian, but it was never actually destroyed.

Jim Ross Mentions Christian In Latest Blog

Earlier today, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated his official site with yet another blog. In his latest blog, he had a few words to say about Christian:

WWE promoting Smackdown inside Raw was strategic and timely. Nice positioning. It also tells me that Christian losing the World Title wasn’t any where near his ‘professional, death knell’ as some fans declared and that Christian just may be set for a significant period of time of his career especially considering the overall lack of depth within the business, as we speak.

I see Christian becoming much more viable than he has been in the past and it seems that him losing the World Title has ignited that theory.

Jim Ross Mentions Christian In Latest Blog

Christian and Randy Orton had a great, TV match on Smackdown but I don’t buy into the ‘tragedy’ that some fans flooded us with here on our site due to Christian losing the World Title. It isn’t as if the loss ended Christian’s career and who’s to say that ‘Captain Charisma’ won’t regain the title at a later date? Those that truly understand the nature of the genre have a different mindset than those who are knee jerking themselves silly.

But his road to the World Heavyweight Championship will be etched into his mind, forever.

Jim Ross Mentions Christian In Recent Blog

Sorry about the lateness of this. The blog entry was originally written up on 15th April 2011, but I just came across it yesterday and thought it was noteworthy.

Great to see Edge fulfill his commitments and travel with WWE on this European tour to say adiós to his fans. I can still vividly remember hiring Edge and Christian out of Ontario back in the day and then signing them both to a full time deal one night at a TV taping under the bleachers of an arena that slips my mind at the moment. Edge has so much to give to the business and I’m relatively certain that WWE will utilize Edge’s many skills in the future.

A History Of The Tag Team Champ – Part 9


Christian & Chris Jericho
Raw (Oct. 14, 2002 – Dec. 15, 2002)

Christian teamed up with Chris Jericho to take on the World Tag Team Champions, Kane and The Hurricane on an edition of Raw. Kane had a lot on his mind as he had just been accused of murder by Triple H. The Game stated he was responsible for the death of one of his ex-girlfriends from his past. Even with all of that weighing on Kane’s mind, he put forth a strong showing, but Chris Jericho used the ropes on a roll-up of The Hurricane to get the win. It marked Jericho’s third World Tag Team Championship and Christian’s ninth.
