Booker T feels Christian is one of the most underrated stars in WWE history

Christian had a fairly prolific career in the WWE with his crowning moments coming during his tag team days with Edge. Most of his contributions go unnoticed when compared with others, which is why Booker T feels that the Peep Show host is one of the most underrated stars in the WWE.

During the recent WWE Backstage Q&A, Booker T was asked about the wrestler with whom he had the most chemistry in the ring. The wrestler duly replied Christian as his answer while adding that he was highly underrated. He said:

“In the WWE, the best chemistry would have been my partner right here on the show, Christian,” Booker T answered. “Me and that guy-man, we made some beautiful music together back in the day.

“Not a better guy that you could have on the road and working with you as well, because when you’re working, it’s all about teamwork; watching one’s back.”

“Christian was the best,” Booker T stated. “One of the most underrated Superstars in history in the WWE.”

    I believe if it wasn’t for Christian, TNA might not had reached the levels it got. He was the first big surprise switch, eventually Angle, Booker, Sting and others joined but Christian’s TNA run was great.

    I would not necessarily say injuries played that big a part. I mean, Edge, Rey and John Cena were never affected by injuries because they had the support of Vince and the back office, Christian never had that. He was essentially gifted his first title due to Edge having to give up the title, as a “feel good” moment and dropped it straight after, so it just showed they had no faith in him.

    Even his second run was a pretty much nothing affair. Won it via DQ (which is never a great way to win a title), then once again dropped it a month later to the same guy he dropped it to before. He was just made to feel like a transitional champion both times, not a true main eventer.

    Christian’s problem was also injuries. I was a huge fan of his TNA run and was excited for his return, but I also think that his feud with Ortin hurt him. Losing the title the next day was BS and he barelly had any type of run with it.

    Christian suffered from one big problem, Vince not liking his face. Sounds ridiculous, but at one point Vince wanted do a gimmick where his face was obscurred by a big blue dot on TV, he hated his face that much.
    For me, Christian was actually the better wrestler than Edge, but obviously in Vinces eyes Edge had the better look. I take nothing away from Edge, as he was a great wrestler and once given the ball to run with it as one of WWE’s top guys, he grabbed that opportunity and took amazing advantage of it.

    I think it says everything about Vinces feelings on both that Edge got to go out with an emotional speech when he retired and Christian just faded out and vanished.

    I am not sure Christian would have been as big a star as Edge in the long run, but he should have been a much more untilised main eventer as the cowardly heel.
