We reported earlier on Thursday here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com that WWE had plans to push Christian as a top babyface.

    I think that is just great to see Christian challenging for the title. I hope to see Christian as champion square off RVD later in the year for the title, it would be epic in my opinion.

    Sandow loses to Rhodes, Christian wins the belt, Sandow cashes in MITB contract and Rhodes vs Sandow for the belt happens with a possible triple threat including Christian at the next PPV…

    • CJ Blaze

      If Christian does get strapped, I hope it’s a serious run that last at least a few months. He’s been ripped off in my opinion.

      • TheD33j

        I agree, but the way the story lines are developing, it doesn’t look good.

  • Ricky

    About freaking time.

    This is awesome news. I think im more excited to attend this year then I was last year.

  • JeanAE

    I’m stoked for this. I’m on board with wanting Christian to run with the title for a while. I’d also like to see Rhodes competing for the title against him.. but seeing as he’s becoming a face, I know the possibility of that is slim.

    The good news is Christian is in this match. I’m optimistic that Christian can push him to have a great match, more than his typical basic work-rate.
