OK as you all know by now Christian has quit WWE! Lets see what you all thought about it.

Christian Quits WWE thread by HulkfearsAustin.

 

NOOOOOOOO i read the title and literally shout "NO" this is terrible news!: someone should stop Mr Perfect from reading Hulk Hogans autobiography.

 

I think it's a work.: oooooh, the cynical Jack strikes again.

 

How can we move on now with the leader of the peeps gone.: I dont know, get a girlfriend maybe y2kwrestlingfan. ;)

 

And if Christian leaves to become a huge success in TNA, can you imagine how many other WWE midcarders will be thinking of asking for their release?: who hoooo, Rhino for TNA champ Russ. What do you mean, of COURSE I read the threads in my forum.........

 

Looks like i might have another reason to watch TNA.: Kaedon is a Trinity mark you see. ;)

http://www.talkwrestlingonline.com/images/members/twiggieplex.jpg

 

FORUM USERNAME: Twiggieplex

 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN? Well, all my friends call me Twiggie, and seeing as how this is a wrestling site I thought I'd incorporate it into a wrestling term... Also for a short period of time it was the name of my finisher in TWOstars, now known as the Twiggaludo Frosion.

 

FIRST THING YOU POSTED ON THE FORUM: Hmm, I can't say for sure, but it was probably anit-Hogan.

 

FIRST WRESTLER YOU CHEERED FOR: Hillbilly Jim

 

FIRST WRESTLER YOU BOOOOOOOOOED: I can't remember, so let's just go with The Rock.

 

CURRENT FAVOURITE WRESTLER, AND WHY? Mick Foley

 

CURRENT MOST HATED WRESTLER, AND WHY? Rick Flair, say what you want about all that he's done for wrestling, but I can't say I've ever been impressed by him. Even way back in the day, when I was cheering for Hillbilly Jim, I still thought Rick Flair was a tool.

 

FAVOURITE WWE BRAND: RAW, although I'm starting to lean towards Smackdown.

 

FAVOURITE INDY FED (IF ANY): TNA

 

NEXT BIG STAR: Funaki's about to make a breakthrough.. he's getting pretty over.

 

WHAT HAND DO YOU WRITE WITH: Left

 

BEETHOVEN OR EMINEM: Beethoven, Eminem is only good when he's funny.

 

FAVOURITE MATCH: Brett Banner vs Twiggie at No Mercy

 

FAVOURITE THEME MUSIC EVER: Raven's Come Out And Play by Offspring

 

IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ANYONE TO BE WORLD CHAMPION, WHO WOULD IT BE: Ken Kennedy, he's got presence, a good voice, and... well that's all you really need.

 

MONTREAL: WHO WAS RIGHT, BRET OR VINCE: Whenever Vince's judgment is called into question it's always for a good reason... Bret was right.

 

WHAT WAS THE FIRST WRESTLING SHOW YOU REMEMBER: Hmm... It's not an entire show, but the earliest wrestling memory I have is of Hillbilly Jim standing in front of a whole bunch of TV monitors talking about an upcoming PPV that I never saw.

 

BATMAN OR SPIDER-MAN? Batman, even though his super power is money, he's still the Dark Knight.

 

FAVOURITE FINISHER: Little Spike Dudley's Acid Drop... the Dudley Dog can bite my testicles.

 

FAVOURITE CHANT: You F***ed up!

 

BEST WRESTLER NEVER TO BE WORLD CHAMPION: Hillbilly Jim

 

FAVOURITE DIVA / WOMEN'S WRESTLER: Nearly all the female Japanese wrestlers, they put our US skanks to shame.

 

WHAT'S YOUR DESKTOP WALLPAPER: Me and a friend of mine when she had dreadlocks posing with a great dane.

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SNACK: onion rings and champagne (try it!!!)

 

OUTSIDE OF TWO, WHAT DO YOU ACTUALLY DO? I go to culinary school, cook, play drums, consume illegal substances.

 

AND ANY LAST BITS OF INFORMATION YOU ARE WILLING TO SHARE WITH THE MEMBERS OF TWO?

 

Yes, for it's time I sling the baskets off this overburdened horse. Sink my toes into the ground and set a different course. Cause if I were here and you were there. I'd meet you in between, and not until my dying day, confess what I have seen. My glance is always darting, when I stroll the avenue. Avoiding all the obstacles that terrorize my view. If you are here with me, I trust you to lead the way. When you're not I follow you, and always go astray. You're silent in the morning, suspended in the trees. Lunch time comes you've found your voice, it brings me to my knees. The volume just increases, Tthe resounding echoes grow. Till once again I bask in morning stillness, I love so. The target that I shoot for seems to move with every breath. I tighten all my arteries and make one last request. Divine creation hears me, and he squashes me with fear. I think that this exact thing happened to me, just last year...

Silent in the morning

You found your voice that brings me to

Silent in the morning

You found your voice that brings me to

Silent in the morning

You found your voice that brings me to my knees

I will not dismiss you, shelter you, speak with you

Smile at you, trust in me, He'd like to brush you off, and I'd agree... .... ..... Where am I? Who are you!? How did you get in here!? This interview is OVER!!!

Christof probes Ahsatan

---------------------------------------------------------------

 

Christof - Ok so are you ready to be probed???

 

Ahsatan - says as ready as I'll ever be!

 

Christof - excellent, well first things first welcome to the probe *hands the probe over*

 

Ahsatan - says thank you.

 

Christof -So, who are you, I suppose that's a good start

 

Ahsatan - I'm Ahsatan, the infamous Wyndorf's other, or better, half.

 

Christof -Well this should be self explanatory but, how did you find yourself at TWO?

 

Ahsatan - I followed Wyndy, he spent loads of time on here, so I figured there must be

some sort of attraction and I joined.

 

Christof -Turns out he was wrong huh?

 

Ahsatan - well, I'm still looking for it... Nah, I like it here really.

 

Christof -So what attracts you to TWO, what keeps you posting / reading?

 

Ahsatan - hmm, that's a hard one. I'm not sure, really. Maybe I just want to see where I've come in the drawing competition.

 

Christof -Ah yes the drawing competition

 

Ahsatan - did you not see my leprechaun?

 

Christof -I did indeed *goes to check*; So how does Wyndy cope with you being more talented?

 

Ahsatan - he's used to it. He's completely resigned to being the inferior member of our duo.

 

Christof -Ah so you aren't going to do the honourable thing and admit that Wyndy draws everything for you

 

Ahsatan - no, because he doesn't! why do you all think I have no talent. I'm left handed and I drew it with my right, now come on, vote for me!

 

Christof -Ok, VOTE FOR AHSATAN that should help you next week

 

Ahsatan - thank you. although I did win it once anyway.

 

Christof -ok so off paint competitions and onto wrestling. Are you actually a wrestling fan?

 

Ahsatan - yes, but I don't post much in the wrestling forums, for fear of looking silly.

 

Christof -It's not that hard, all you have to do is post OMG111!!! Cena suckz alot to please the majority

 

Ahsatan - well, Cena does suck. I think he looks like a toddler that has been enlarged.

 

Christof -Well he was a former midget wrestler

 

Ahsatan - but he was too tall, right?

 

Christof -Something like that, now from reading other probes I guess I should ask real questions

 

Ahsatan - now I'm scared...

 

Ahsatan - This is the first time a probe has felt like this...

 

Christof -Hmmmmm, I have nothing to say to that#

 

Ahsatan - I'm sure you do, you just better not!

 

Christof -Other than being a midget wrestler hating, MS Paint master what do you do in the real world?

 

Ahsatan - I'm a factory supervisor type fore(wo)man. I tell people what to do, it rocks on occasion!

 

Christof -So you supervise a factory, sounds pretty easy, I mean anyone can watch a building, is there anything else you do other than being a "supervisor" (read Security Guard)?

 

Ahsatan - Like hobbies? Doesn’t that involve "spare time"? We just bought a house a few months back, so we're doing that up. Other than that, I like going to gigs, music, and being mummy to my five cats and three bunnies.

 

Christof -You’re a mum to five cats? I knew Sussex was weird but....

 

Ahsatan - yeah, I don't remember the births, but it's probably for the best.

 

Christof -So from reading other probes it seems fitting that i ask a question about Spiritchaser. Do you have any idea why people are obsessed with him?

 

Ahsatan - nope. to be honest, I haven't had much to do with him. I think I joined around the time he "left". I've seen posts by him, but haven't really paid much attention as it seems to go further than I know anything about!

 

Christof -Good good, we can move on then *note - please make this the last SC related probe question - EVER*; A couple more questions then we'll move onto some word association, hmmmmmmmmkay?

 

Ahsatan - mmmmmmmmmkay.

 

Christof -Other than Wyndy, any other friends on TWO that you dare admit to?

 

Ahsatan - I have a couple on my msn that I occasionally chat to. Mostly Darkstar, Gem and Miss T. There are people I've always thought seem cool, but I never add anyone to my msn before they say I can. I fear rejection!

 

Christof -Anyone from TWO you'd be willing to meet in the real world?

 

Ahsatan - yeah, I guess so. I'd possibly go to a meet, I'd meet anyone. They're usually too far away though. Maybe Wyndy and I could host one at some point, for all the southerners.

 

Christof -Cool, so we'll pencil you in for the Royal Rumble then?

 

Ahsatan - maybe...

 

Christof -excellent, moving onto Word Association now, type the first thing that comes into your head on the following

 

Ahsatan - ok... go...

 

Christof -TWO

 

Ahsatan - wrestling

 

Christof -Wrestlers

 

Ahsatan - big men........

 

Christof -I can see where this is going, so change of subject; Champagne Room

 

Ahsatan - resurrected!

 

Christof -Tumbleweed

 

Ahsatan - champagne room

 

Christof -Ready Brek

 

Ahsatan - glowing (ready brek?!)

 

Christof -Cheese

 

Ahsatan - yellow. I drew a complete blank on cheese!

 

Christof -Ok now for some easier ones; Darkstar

 

Ahsatan - Pigstar; that's not my fault, damn avatar!

 

Christof -Miss T

 

Ahsatan - controversial.

 

Christof -Mr Perfect

 

Ahsatan - improved

 

Christof -It wasn't my Woooooooo!

 

Ahsatan - great name!

 

Christof -Russ

 

Ahsatan - Chatroom howdy man

 

Christof -and Finally, Kam

 

Ahsatan - invisible

 

Christof -Ok Ahsatan, thank you very much for allowing yourself to be probed, I hope you enjoyed it

 

Ahsatan - it was an experience, Christof. I hope you too enjoyed probing me. Thank you.

 

Christof -Good bye

 

Ahsatan - Ta ta.

Is it the best Christian thing to do?

 

So another top WWE star has left the fold but in all truth was Christian really a top WWE star? Now I know there are lots of you out there who absolutely love this guy and who have probably declared a week of mourning but what did this guy really do in the company and why wasn’t he allowed to do more, or could he have done more?

 

Christian enjoyed his greatest success in WWE in tag team wrestling. Edge and Christian (see whose name comes first and then look at how their careers progressed, then again look where Gangrel is now) In time as Edge started getting his singles push, problems began between Edge and Christian who at the time were supposed to be brothers, now they’re just buddies – families eh! Christian eventually turned heel on Edge and a great feud looked likely. It didn’t turn out that way, even though Christian eventually won the IC Title, the feud wasn’t anywhere near what was expected and that’s where I think Christian’s problems began.

 

Christian was given a dodgy operatic intro but he was destined to stay in the mid-card or end up in tag teams like the Un-Americans, again being successful this time around with Lance Storm. One thing was certain and that was that Christian was good on the mic so in time he was given his own chat show, ‘The Peep Show’, just a way of setting up feuds either for himself or mainly others.

 

Christian continued to be ignored when it came to the big matches. Sure he’s had a few matches against John Cena including headlining a PPV but it’s been downhill for him ever since. Suddenly he ended up on Smackdown and jobbing left,right and centre to Batista and even being attacked by the Mexicools in a storyline that went nowhere.

 

So why was this happening? Christian appears to be another of those wrestlers who just lacks something that makes them the true superstar. He could work on the mic but his singles feuds never really set the world alight. Perhaps he should have stayed in the tag divisions that so needed an expert performer.

 

He’s left the company on good terms so he could be back one day. What next though? Is it just too easy for him to go into TNA and most likely get a big push? Jeff Hardy is waiting for him there, so are Rhino, Jarrett and Raven. Christian could yet be the big main eventer but only time will tell.
