Jim Ross: Christian Didn't Quite Have The Same Connective Charisma As Edge

It took a while for Captain Charisma to emerge

Legendary eight time WWE Tag Team Champions, when Edge and Christian split as a team many pegged Edge destined for greatness, whilst Christian was seen by many as the clear ‘number two’ of the duo.

This sentiment was shared by former WWE Head of Talent relations Jim Ross, who said the following about Christian on a recent episode of Grilling JR:

“I always thought Edge was going to be a breakout star because he connected with the audience, [Christian] was always the clear number two on that team. I was glad they both got their opportunity to grow on their own, but I always thought that Edge had a little bit of a leg up in that scenario. That does not mean by any stretch of the imagination that Christian wasn’t a great hand. The match that he had with Kenny Omega in AEW was outstanding. He still is a hell of a worker, he’s always been a hell of a worker, but he just didn’t quite have that connectable charisma that Edge had. It’s not a knock on Christian whatsoever, just [Edge] had a specialness about him and I’m happy he’s back in the game at a schedule he can manage and take care of his health.”

Eventually, Christian stepped out of Edge’s shadow and forged his own path as a singles star, with NWA, WWE, and IMPACT World Heavyweight Title wins to his name.
