Christian tells the story of how he thought of the "Captain Charisma" nickname.
During an interview with Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda, Christian revealed that he wanted to think of a nickname that he would think would be cool but also annoy people. The process took Christian a few months and once he was able to think of the name, people weren't exactly too keen on it. It's precisely other people's comments of the nickname being terrible that made Christian decide it was perfect.
"I was trying to think of a ridiculous name when I was off with an injury for a few months and, you know, who isn't a fan of Shawn Michaels? He called himself the Heartbreak Kid and just that this kind of catchy little nickname so I was like, 'What can I give myself that could be kind of annoying name that I would think is cool but people generally don't think is cool?' I came up with that, I threw it out and a couple of people were like, 'That's terrible, you shouldn't use it.' As soon as I heard that, I was like, Yeah, I'm using it,'" Christian said.
