• Former World Champion Reveals Why He Didn’t Get A Chance To Announce His In-Ring Retirement In WWE

During a recent interview with TV Insider, former World Heavyweight Champion Christian revealed why he didn’t get a chance to announce his in-ring retirement in WWE.

Below is what “Captain Charisma” said:

“For me, I’ve never been the guy to go out there and say, ‘That’s it. I’m done.’ Honestly, I think what happened is when I got hurt, nobody knew this was going to be the end. It was a bit of a process. It was four or five months down the line when we realized I wasn’t coming back from it.

So, it’s kind of hard to go back after and say, ‘Remember five months ago when I was off TV? Well, guess what?’ It got to a certain point when it was too hard to go back and do anything. I’m completely fine with my career. I feel like I accomplished everything I ever set out to accomplish. On to the next chapter.”
