Former two times World Heavyweight champion Christian was scheduled to face the WWE Intercontinental champion Big E for the Intercontinental championship. He defeated Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio in a fatal four way no 1 contender’s match for the WWE Intercontinental championship against Big E at the Main event. Christian’s performance was highly praised by the fans and the wrestling pundits that night.
But Christian could not appear at the Main Event to compete for the WWE Intercontinental championship against Big E. Most of the fans expressed their disappointment after Christian’s absence in the show.
According to reports, once again Christian suffered from a slight concussion during his training. The seriousness of this injury is not been specified by the medical team of World Wrestling Entertainment till now. But it is believed that Captain Charisma would be able to make his return before the grandest stage of them all.
Christian is scheduled to be competing in the 30 man over the top rope Andre the Giant memorial battle royal along with Mark Henry, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes, Sheamus, Fandango, Jinder Mahal, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Damien Sandow, Heath Slater, The Miz, Goldust, Big E, Big Show, Alberto Del Rio, Titus O’Neil, Brodus Clay, Darren Young, Justin Gabriel, R-Truth, Rey Mysterio, The Great Khali, Santino Marella, Zack Ryder, Sin Cara and 4 other Superstars.
Since he is injured, he might get replaced by some other superstar for this match. But it has been confirmed that his concussion problem is not serious. He might be able to come back very soon, maybe the very next week on Monday Night Raw.
So what do you think should he be continuing intercontinental championship after he returns? If you ask me, I would say, yes. He deserves at least an intercontinental championship run. He has never been given the status and position which he actually deserves by WWE. He should be continuing his feud for the WWE Intercontinental championship after his return.
This injury of him can be utilized in a storyline as well. They can build up a storyline where Big E makes a kayfabe assault on Christian and pulled him away from the championship match. There could be other suitable angles too.
I also believe this match should head towards WrestleMania as well. If you look at the match card of WrestleMania XXX, neither the Intercontinental title nor the US title is being defended at the event. The US championship cannot be defended now as Dean Ambrose is involved in a non-title six man tag team match.
All those superstars competing in the battle royal are not battling in any other match. Both Christian and Big E are in that match. So the intercontinental title might not defended, which should not happen. The title should be defended and Christian is the perfect man to headline for the title. Now let us see if they seriously the title match at the event.
