After an Extreme Rules pay-per-view where Awesome Kong debuted as Kharma and John Cena won the WWE Championship for the 10th time, the biggest talking point has been the fact that Christian has finally won a World title in the WWE.
Ever since Edge and Christian split up as a tag team, Captain Charisma was overlooked and underused while Edge's illicit relationship with Lita rocketed him to the top.
Christian's decision to make the move to TNA in 2005 seemed to signal the end of his main event aspirations with Vince McMahon's company.
But after four years away, Christian returned and was given two title reigns on the dying ECW product. Every year Christian was touted to win the Money in the Bank ladder match, but every year he came up short, and it seemed the day would never come.
But then a torn pectoral muscle that was caused by Alberto Del Rio kept Christian out for four months, and when he returned he became involved in Edge's feud with Del Rio for the World Heavyweight title.
After Edge was forced to retire, Christian replaced him in his scheduled ladder match at Extreme Rules for the vacant World title.
Christian's victory has been a long time coming, and here are five reasons why he deserves this success.
