AEW’s Cash Wheeler is praising Christian, who recently came out of retirement, for his ability in the ring and his all-around likability as a person.
At the 2021 Royal Rumble, Christian returned to action after seven years of a quiet retirement. In response to a fan asking what the big deal is about Christian returning, Cash Wheeler, who wrestled in WWE as Dash Wilder named the multiple reasons he feels Christian should be praised including his timing in the ring and ability to have a great match, but more than that, Wheeler says Christian was always a veteran who was never selfish and was always willing to help the young talent.
His personality. His footwork. His psychology. His ring positioning. His mind for the business. His ability to elevate his opponents unselfishly & make them look better than they are. His passion. His willingness to help younger talent. His seamless mic work. But that’s it really https://t.co/I8D8pJRhA7— CASH (@CashWheelerFTR) February 1, 2021
Nothing really. Can believably be world champion in the main event or working with the newest guy on the roster in the opening match. Can do serious, comedy, angry, goofy in the same segment. Excels in any match. Regular. Tag. Ladders etc. All at the highest level. https://t.co/deefso5jBR— CASH (@CashWheelerFTR) February 1, 2021
It was revealed in the WWE 24 documentary about Edge returning that Wheeler was one of the few people who knew about Edge coming back to the ring and even worked out with him inside of the ring when he was preparing for his return in the 2020 Royal Rumble.
This year, Edge won the Royal Rumble and he got to do it with his best friend by his side. An emotional Edge said in a post-match interview that he was going to stop questioning why things happen the way they do and just start enjoying them. Learn more at this link.
