Why Christian Was Really Pulled from WrestleMania, WWE’s Update

- WWE posted an injury update on Christian saying that he re-aggravated a prior neck injury during the fight with WWE Champion CM Punk on last night’s RAW Supershow. As noted before, Christian has been pulled from WrestleMania 28 and replaced on Team Laurinaitis by Drew McIntyre.

WWE’s report adds the following:

“Although Christian claimed to also have experienced ankle pain following the onslaught, doctors later confirmed he did not re-aggravate the ankle sprain he suffered last year while on tour in Europe.”

However, F4Wonline.com reports that Christian was pulled from WrestleMania because his ankle is not 100%. When WWE put the match together, they thought Christian would be ready to go but he’s not.

    Shucks !

    Yeah…blows, doesn’t it? But, to be frank, this type of match is beneath Christian at this stage of his career. He needed to be in a title feud or a high-profile singles match. There is a silver lining, though – Drew McIntyre (who I thought would have and should have been on Team Johnny anyway) gets some WM screentime.

    @xXwindsofchangeXx: I do agree with you. But to tell you the truth I was hoping some sort of and improptu match or whatever coulda happened due to the whole “if team johnny wins then christian’s got himself a pretty little title match” thing. Anyways, indeed it is good news for Drew !

    As has been said already, it is a shame but it’s not as if the lack of Christian will severely harm his career in the upcoming months. He was merely a small component of a much bigger angle – a very talented component, but a component nonetheless.

    He’s a fantastic wrestler, and a reliable guy to call upon for high-profile feuds (as we’ve seen with Del Rio, Orton and Sheamus).
    His time will come again.

    i find it fucked up that they’re putting in Drew McIntyre as a last resort! that’s insulting because the great stiffy was a first round pick!

    That really sucks for Christian. He’s one of my favorite wrestlers and he’s already proven that he can be a main event wrestler but the injury bug always seems to hit him. I hope he recovers well from his ankle injury.
