Awesome: Christian
  • Edge and Christian vs. the Hardy Boyz in a Ladder Match at No Mercy 1999; the match would put both teams on the map, and is still considered one of the best ladder matches of all time. It got a standing ovation on the night, and on the next night's episode of Raw.
  • Anytime "Edge and Christian", "Hardy Boyz", and "Dudley Boyz" showed up together on the match card, it was guaranteed awesome.
  • Winning the NWA title off of Jeff Jarrett was much appreciated.
  • When the WWE started using the "Captain Charisma" nickname, they were sent a cease and desist letter by a wrestler who already had the trademark on that phrase. Six or so months later, we find that the owner of that trademark was Christian himself, legally watching his back. Similarly, he trademarked the name "Christian Cage" before WWE had a chance to claim the name "Christian," meaning that unlike some other transplants, he got to keep his name in TNA.
  • His ladder match for the ECW championship against Shelton Benjamin at TLC.
  • Finally winning the World Heavyweight Championship at Extreme Rules '11
    • Which makes him the eleventh Grand Slam Champion.
    • Better yet, him becoming the eleventh Grand Slam Champion subverts Breakup Breakout — it's the one feat Edge has never managed and never will be able to.
  • Despite the outcome of the matches, both of his World Heavyweight Championship matches against Randy Orton were two of the best matches of 2011 so far.
  • His Batman Gambit at Money in the Bank has led to the recapture of the WHC title.
  • Over the Limit 2012: He's Back, and he wins the People Power Battle Royal to become the number one contender for the U.S. Championship, or the Intercontinental Championship. Initially, he chooses to face Santino Marella for the U.S. Championship, but changes his mind after he overhears Cody Rhodes insulting him backstage. The match ends with a devastating Killswitch from Christian, as he captures the IC Title for the fourth time.
  • WWE and TNA made a deal for Ric Flair, then under contract to TNA, to be able to join his Four Horsemen brothers to receive his second WWE Hall of Fame ring. The return end of the deal? Christian, while under contract to WWE and fresh off his Intercontinenal Championship return in the previous moment, appears at Slammiversary 2012 to present the biggest moment in TNA history as voted by the fans. The moment was Sting's official return at Final Resolution 2006, a tag team main event he and Christian won (which was also Christian's first TNA PPV main event win) against Monty Brown and Jeff Jarrett.
    • And on then he appeared on Raw the next night, becoming the first man to appear on a TNA & WWE broadcast in the span of 24 hours, and appeared on SmackDown the Friday before as well.
