WWE.com: The 16 Most Decorated Champions In WWE History

#12 (tied): Christian (20)

Nine-time World Tag Team Champion
Four-time Intercontinental Champion
Two-time World Heavyweight Champion
Two-time ECW Champion
One-time European Champion
One-time Hardcore Champion
One-time Light Heavyweight Champion

The WWE Universe fondly recalls Christian’s formative years as the tandem title partner of Edge, but often forget that Captain Charisma literally started accruing championships from day one. His WWE debut match at Judgment Day 1998 ended with Christian becoming the second Light Heavyweight Champion in history, and the Canadian Superstar has cluttered his trophy case with WWE gold ever since.

After claiming a share of an unprecedented six World Tag Team Championship reigns alongside The Rated-R Superstar, Christian went out on his own and proceeded to match that tally in singles competition. His 16-year career includes tenures as Intercontinental, European and ECW Champion and culminates with the right to call himself a World Champion in 2011 – followed by constant pleas for one more title opportunity.

One more match? If one of WWE’s most precious metals is on the line, Christian will be there.




WWE.com: Top 10 Intercontinental Championship Matches In Raw History

#7. Intercontinental Champion Christian vs. Booker T (July 7, 2003)
Yes, he’s a five-time, five-time, five-time, five-time, FIVE-TIME WCW Champion. As of this match, though, Booker T had yet to lay hands on the Intercontinental Championship, and to get his first run with the prize, he had to go through Christian. Even though Booker had a distinct size advantage over Captain Charisma, the champion more than held his own, taking advantage of Booker’s early (and inexplicable) desire to perform the Spinaroonie.

With such near match-ending scenarios, Christian was so crafty that Booker actually had to beat him twice; Captain Charisma initially got his foot on the ropes and the ref restarted the match. It took a dizzying, ping-ponging series of scissor kicks to finally do the job, but the smile on Booker’s face as he became a one-time, one-time … you know, Intercontinental Champion is more than worth it

WWE.com: The Top 10 Matches of 2014…So Far

#8. Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena vs. Cesaro vs. Sheamus vs. Christian – WWE World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match (Elimination Chamber)
People forget how awesome this match was. They shouldn’t. On a night that was arguably headlined in spirit by the first clash between The Shield and The Wyatt Family (press pause on that for a minute), a wild bash for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship unfolded inside the twisted steel of “Satan’s Prison” that didn’t cease to surprise the WWE Universe for a single second.

Well, maybe the ultimate screwing of Daniel Bryan — yet again — out of the supreme prize by The Authority was something you could see coming from a mile away. But certainly not the perennial underdog Christian eliminating the Irish juggernaut Sheamus with a frog splash off the Chamber pods; or the ascendant Cesaro swinging Randy Orton like a hammer throw; or The Wyatts’ entrance into the Chamber to feast upon an unsuspecting John Cena. Going into this match the WWE Universe likely had their favorites, but with all six Superstars entering the Chamber before a single elimination was recorded, what sometimes seems like a formality on the final stop to WrestleMania suddenly took on an air of unpredictability. Anything really can happen in WWE, and for one night anything almost did.

Hogan, Michaels and Cena were victorious and following the contest, Cena and HBK stood in the ring and posed with The Immortal One.
