• Christian Reveals What Type Of A Wrestling Ring He Prefers

During a recent edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness podcast, former World Heavyweight Champion Christian commented on whether he prefers a square ring or a six-sided ring which he worked in during his time in TNA.

Below is what Christian said:

“I’m a traditionalist; I like the square one. I get that the six-sided [ring] looked different, but I don’t think it was enough to be like, ‘oh, man this ring is so different.’ It was a little bit awkward to wrestle in, because sometimes when you are shooting somebody corner to corner, you had to adjust because it wasn’t directly across. And it was also really hard, like it was a hard ring. If you weren’t bumping pretty much around the middle of it, like around the edges were super, super hard, and it hurt.

So, I’ve always been partial to the square ring. I got used to it, and I didn’t think of it at a certain time, but even little things like when you climb up the ropes to jump off the top rope, the foot positioning is farther apart because of where the ropes are, the distance, I guess, that they have to travel to the next post is different than when the ring is square. So, it was a smaller area to put your feet on a regular ring, and it was further apart and I always found it harder to jump off the top rope with your feet really far apart.”

• Steel Cage Match To Take Place At Extreme Rules 2018

According to The PPG Paints Arena’s updated Extreme Rules 2018 PPV advertising, Mr. Money In The Bank Braun Strowman is set to face former Universal Champion Kevin Owens in a Steel Cage match.

As we noted earlier, a #1 contenders match for the Universal Championship is still set to take place in the main event of Extreme Rules 2018 and it will be a 6 Pack Challenge (which means what happened on RAW this week was just a storyline).
