• Reason Behind Vince McMahon Not Being High On Christian

During an episode of Something To Wrestle, Bruce Prichard (a.k.a Brother Love) talked about Vince McMahon not being high on Christian, but being interested in Edge.

Below is what Prichard said:

“Vince didn’t feel that Christian had the personality to connect with the audience in a big way. He didn’t think he was larger than life and at that time Vince wanted the top guys needed to be larger than life. You needed to be The Rock, needed to be Stone Cold, you needed to be The Undertaker.

Every time you would come up with an idea for Edge or Christian it would be like okay, there is a lot excitement there with Edge. ‘Oh by god, we could do this with him. We could do this with him, a big good-looking bastard and then we’d get to Christian and it would just be, ‘Ugh, godd*mn, do we have to shoot him? Do we have to see that face? The f**k’s he gonna say?!’

Vince felt Edge was the star of the team and while Christian had the tools, best damn worker on the card, and he would always say that and loved him personally. Just didn’t think that personality transcended and got to the audience.”
