Ok, quick things to say to other notable statements in this thread. Punk and Christian don't look alike? Are we being serious here? They are both great performers who are just slightly smaller than the 6'2" 220 pound wrestlers that vince so dearly loves... And they both were overlooked for quite a while...
Also, Are we seriously still talking about christian being a coattail rider to edge? This is 2013 guys, not 2003. Christian is a hall of famer yes in part because of his work with edge, but are you guys really going to say that edge isn't a hall of famer because some of his work with christian? If so, I don't even know what to say to you.

If anything TNA made WWE realize that they could put the title on Christian.
Also, the younger guys of yesterday didn't perform and that's why sheamus got a title after 2 months? Are we really using that as an argument? First I'm pretty sure if I remember right that Christian was fighting for the WHC with randy orton when sheamus won his first wwe title... Also, Sheamus beat JOHN CENA for the belt... Cena didn't have to drop the belt, it's not like sheamus brought attitude era like ratings, which did happen when Edge was WWE champion. The reason people like sheamus win the title so early in their career is because they are vince's type of guys... Sheamus is 6'6" 267 pounds he actually out sizes John Cena, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, etc etc etc... I have no problem with vince pushing the guys who beat his 6'2" 220 pound idea of a superstar, but don't say the reason is because christian under performed because that's just silly.
