• Christian Reveals The Original Plan For WrestleMania 2000

At WrestleMania 16 (also known as WrestleMania 2000), Edge & Christian defeated The Dudley Boyz & The Hardy Boyz in a Triangle Ladder Match to win the WWF Tag Team Championship.

Christian appeared on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast and discussed the original plan for this match.

Below are the highlights:

On the original plan being for E&C to split after losing at WrestleMania 2000:

“I think maybe a few days before we actually sat down to put [the match] together, we didn’t even know what the finish was.

At one point, it was somebody else winning, and Edge & Christian, we’re splitting up after this.

So then we kind of we started to talk a little bit before this, or after this, when we kind of started talking and then we turned.”

On him & Edge doing Commentary leading to their tag team being saved:

“They told us to say whatever we wanted and Adam and I started dropping F-bombs. We weren’t supposed to — we were supposed to lose and that changed the minds.

They were like, ‘Oh, these guys aren’t done yet. There’s more layers, as a tag.’

Then they decided to have us win the match and then turn heel because they saw some personality there when we were doing that promo.

Then, we did a couple of things on commentary and that was kind of the thing that saved Edge and Christian as a team because we were going to split up after this.”
