Toronto Sun: A Career That Totally Reeked Of Awesomeness


Recently, Christian was interviewed by Jan Murphy for Toronto Sun, where he discussed several topics surrounding his wrestling career, including when he first became a wrestling fan, breaking into the WWE with The Brood, groundbreaking matches with the Hardys and The Dudleys, Injuries and life after wrestling, to name a few. Be sure to take the time to read the interview, in full, below, it’s a great write-up and thank you once again to Jan Murphy.

If not for a bad break, literally, the professional wrestling world and its fans may never have been treated to the legendary aerials and antics of Canadian friends and wrestling partners Edge and Christian.

That break came in the form of a broken shoulder suffered by a young Jay Reso. And while he didn’t yet know it, that injury set the young Ontarian on a collision course with destiny.

“At the time I was living in Grand Valley, Ontario, which is a really, really small town,” Reso, better known by his Christian moniker, said in a telephone interview promoting his return to Toronto this weekend as part of an NXT afterparty that also features the WWE’s Miz.

It started on a Friday night not unlike many before it, Reso recalled when asked how he came to fall in love with pro wrestling.

“Do you remember when people used to go public skating?” he asked the reporter, whom replied he did. “We were public skating. Kids would race the length of the ice or the width of the ice and we were in a race and I hit a groove in the ice and I ended up losing my balance and I (crashed) head-first into the boards. I ended up breaking my shoulder.”

Little did he know then but crash landings would play a pretty significant role in the future of the then fourth-grader.

“The break was so high up in my shoulder at the time that (doctors) couldn’t even put a cast on it,” Reso recalled. Grand Valley was so small that it had no hospital. The injured young Reso was taken to nearby Orangeville (more on that town later) to be treated.

Stay Loud: WWE Superstars Share Guilty Pleasure Songs

Christian, WWE Superstar: various songs

“Here are a few, and they all stem from 10 hour car rides from Orangeville, Ontario, where I grew up to Morrisville, Pennsylvania, where my dad grew up and my grandparents lived. We would drive down to visit and cram the whole family-dogs included—into a van and make the 10-hour trek. My parents were easy listening enthusiasts and would crank that stuff for the entire ride. Gems like ‘Islands In The Stream’ by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, ‘Sailing’ by Christopher Cross and ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ by the Bee Gees. I wanted to hate them, I tried to hate them, but whenever they are played on the radio, I turn it up and sing along. Some or all of these may or may not be on my iPod.”
