    Should Christian Be in WWE or TNA?

    In my free time, i went to watch some old Christian stuff. It really got me wondering if Christian should be in WWE any longer. I mean, they don't treat him as good as he should be treated. In WWE, he is just a temporary IC Champ. In TNA, he was a World Champion, and considered one of the greats in that company (hell, he was plain BETTER in TNA).

    What do you guys think?

    Yikes, I know I'm going to get hammered but I'm honest about my observations and yrs of wrestling knowledge, since the 70s.

    Here we go...I never liked Christian as a singles wrestler in the WWE. He is cursed with the "Owen" syndrome. All the skills in the world, but just not as entertaining as his legendary counterpart, which is Edge. Unfortunately there's always going to be that direct comparison in the WWE. Just like Owen to Bret and Eddie to Chavo.

    He should be in TNA as far away from The Rated R Superstar as possible.

    Sorry, just my opinion.

    I'll say this. Your opinion was great. And you made a great point which i should have STRESSED. He shouldnt be so attached to Edge. His career would have been better in TNA. You are 100% right.

    The guy has never been able to get away from the Edge comparisons i don't think he ever will. He has still accomplished more than most people that get into wrestling though that cannot be forgotten.

    I prefer he stay in WWE, honestly. Short of the injuries, and him asking for time off, he was a champion and can now be used in the main event, and to put over people - which, at this stage of his career, is probably the best for him. He's a great wrestler, yes, but it does nothing for him, imo, to decide 'Hey, let's bus him back to TNA, the number 2 fed /in america/, for him to be 'used right', because let's face it, Edge was better, and the best Christian can do is being top champ in TNA.' That's some self-value killing type of stuff.

    That's, in my view, saying - Edge was better than you, couldn't make it to the top in the number one fed, so cut your loss demote yourself back to TNA and be a champion there. It won't help him escape Edge, who was both top champs(WWE/WHC), in WWE, and the best Christian could do was be a champ in TNA to try and 'escape' it.

    Basically, him staying in WWE would be best at this stage in his career- they, apparently, give him time off when he wants it; they've made him WHC twice(both, shitty reigns), gave him multiple shots, great matches(With Orton, and almost everyone else he's faced), he gets paid well(Most likely), and is likely financially set for the rest of his life, if he doesn't squander it away, and can probably get a job backstage with WWE once he retires from in-ring competition.

    How can someone say that Christian should leave WWE and go to TNA?
    Christian himself stated that he went to TNA for 2 main reasons only: to rest up a bit from WWE and to prove to himself and to others that he can bring a company on his shoulders as main eventer.
    Then he said he was a fish too big for TNA and left.

    And he is right.
    For those people saying "he would do better in TNA". That's right, he would do better just beacause TNA is 10 times smaller than WWE.

    It's just like saying "I can't have that beatiful woman so I think I'll just hang out with her ugly friend."

    Christian wants to stay at the TOP (that is WWE, nothing to talk here).

    We will see what happens when he returns and to conclude, for those saying he is not entertaining as Edge, just go back and see his "captain charisma era".

    If he is not entertaining is because WWE wants him to be that way.
    The only place for a guy like Christian is at the TOP (WWE).
    Period.

    Honestly, I couldn't have said this any better. You're absolutely right. TNA is really where he should be. He had a nice return to WWE a few years ago, but honestly, he should really close it out down in Orlando.

    Honestly, Christian sucks in the WWE. He had the limelight for some time but that ended quickly. He was a champion in TNA so his choice is obvious. In Christian's case, it's better to be champion in the #2 company than a jobber in the #1 company.
    I want to know who looked at David Otunga and said "You know something? This guy's good." They deserve to be fired.

    in case nobody knows, Christian has said he doesn't want anything to do with TNA and can you blame him.

    You're making the huge assumption that they'd use him right in TNA. Things aren't the same as when he was there previously.
