Christian vs Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship.
This is the match that can define putting it all on the line as Christian looks to prove himself as a legitimate main eventer who deserved more than just a two-day reign or in WWE terms, five days, while Orton looks to keep his status as Smackdown's top face and champion.
Randy Orton, the man who ruined Christian's dream and lifelong achievement, will be putting his World Heavyweight Championship on the line.
He is not just putting the championship on the line but his spot as Smackdown's top face as well. The bearer of the main championship of the show is usually the top star and if Christian wins, he'll be known and recognized as Smackdown's top star, a role that his former friend Edge left vacated due to a sudden retirement from professional wrestling.
Walking into this PPV, Christian is the superstar who is putting the most on the line.
Christian is not only putting his number one contendership on the line as it's do-or-die time for him but he is also putting his redemption, friendship, and career on the line as well.
Christian's friendship is not really on the line but it partly is because Christian was given the belt in honor of Edge and he lost it in a matter of days. The belt was a symbol to his long-lasting friendship with Edge and now that it's gone from his waist, that part that completes their journey together is now gone.
Christian also looks to redeem himself as he looks to prove to Mr. McMahon, the man that is rumored to hold a grudge against him, why it was a bad choice to make him lose his championship and why he should regret making him lose the championship and a possible spot as the face of the blue brand.
Christian also looks to redeem his reign by proving to Randy Orton that he did not deserve to lose the title. He wants to prove that he deserves to hold that belt, not just for his friend, but for himself as well.
Christian's career is symbolically on the line as he wants to show that he deserves a longer reign and that he needs the belt to show that his whole career of putting his body on the line for the fans and the business wasn't done for nothing.
He needs to win to show that his whole career was all about making it in the business and fulfilling his childhood dream. But will he win?
There is hope as I stated in an earlier article, but will this hope coincide with the Over the Limit PPV as Christian could become champion or will the Viper prevail once again while crushing Christian's chances of another and more fulfilling 'Cinderella" moment?
