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.

WWE.com: The 50 Coolest Maneuvers Of All Time

#40. Christian’s Killswitch
It takes a Superstar of superior determination to pull off a move as daring as the Killswitch. And, as his Peeps know, Christian and his “one more match” mentality are perfect not just for being able to deliver this devastating attack, but make it look cool in the process. When Captain Charisma is efficient, the fluidity of the Killswitch holds a beauty that few other match-ending maneuvers can equal. If he milks it, the move doubles as a cerebral attack, giving opponents time to realize what’s about to happen.

The maneuver’s origins can be found in the Tomikaze, a unique attack favored by tag team specialist Tommy Rogers. Still, while Superstars like Billy Kidman and Nunzio have also used it, the Killswitch truly belongs to Christian.

WWE Community: Christian Grants Matthew’s Wish

DETROIT – WWE helped make dreams come true for Matthew Sunday night when the teen met his favorite Superstar, Christian, before watching Night of Champions live!

“I met Matthew today. He’s an 18-year-old, big WWE fan from Flint, Mich. He made it down here to Detroit to catch his first-ever show live,” Christian told WWE.com.

“His dad tells me he’s an avid fan. He and his brothers watch every single week – they never miss a show. But this is the first time they’ve gotten to experience WWE live, so they were pretty excited about it.”

In-ring veteran spent time with the teen from Rainbow Connection before the live pay-per-view at Joe Louis Arena.

“I kind of filled them in that it’s nothing like what they see on TV – it’s a whole different feeling when you’re here and you see everything up close and personal,” Christian explained. “The atmosphere is unreal. They couldn’t have picked a better show to come and check out.”

Captain Charisma had no problem keeping the conversation with the teen since he is such a huge WWE fan.

“It was great to get a chance to sit down, one-on-one and have a conversation and say to Matthew: ‘Any questions? Just ask me whatever you want.’ He started to ask me different questions about different things about different Superstars and stuff like that. It was really cool.”

Christian was thrilled but humbled that he was able to help make Matthew’s wish come true.

“It’s very important and it’s a great honor to be able to do things like that and make a small difference in somebody’s life. To see the smiles on their faces is what it’s all about.”
