    For some reason, it makes me sad to see Christian now days…. he´s stuck in midcard, jobbing a lot and barely doing anything relevant… It really sucks that Vince never liked him, he could have been such a great superstar!!!, Sometimes I just wish he retires!!!!….

    Gabriel and Kidd are arguably the two most talented performers (among a few others) that the WWE has, yet they are so underused. I really hope they do form a tag-team and they are put in contention for the titles.

    Which is a shame, since Gabriel is actually fun to watch in the ring. I guess they’re waiting for Kidd to come back?

    Looks like Gabriel is going the way of Zack Ryder…
