WWE Superstar Christian has been plagued with injuries since his World Heavyweight Championship and Intercontinental Championship runs in the WWE, injuring his shoulder and most recently receiving a concussion at the hands of Randy Orton and a vicious attack by The Shield. Since being absent, however, he has welcomed the birth of a child and taken newfound inspiration from this into his quest for one more match. Time will tell as to what kind of impact his return to the WWE roster will make, but the WWE Universe is eager to find out as he makes his way to Smackdown, some arguably even more eager than they were awaiting the return of Batista.
The most recent and insanely accurate Christian featured in Mattel WWE Series 36 has a spot on headsculpt, scruff and blonde hair just like the real Captain Charisma. With green and black ring pants, his outfit pops with color and he’s the perfect basic Mattel WWE figure for those looking to add the Captain to their collection who already haven’t. This will be the figure wrestling figure fans worldwide use to re-enact Christian’s return.
Mattel’s now defunct WWE Rumblers set included miniature versions of favorite WWE Superstars and Legends, and Christian is lucky enough to count on both sides of that description. Here, he is featured in modern day attire with Sheamus, teaching the red-headed Irish beast a lesson in respect and learning to earn your place in the WWE and working hard for it. If fans remember his feud with Sheamus, Christian did this by complaining and sneaking his way around defeats to the big brawler. Fans can fondly remember the comedy of Christian’s antics that were a thorn in the side of Sheamus with this Rumblers set.
Mattel WWE Elite 20 saw one of the first Attitude Era flashbacks with this old school style Christian, complete with mesh shirt, yellow ring pants and black boots. This Christian also included sunglasses (a solid yellow and clear yellow variant) that both Edge and Christian made famous during the Attitude Era. Christian is a pioneer of the Tables, Ladders and Chairs match that is now a staple of WWE programming and along with his tag team partner Edge, redefined the ladder match and brought the prestige of the WWE Tag Team Championships to a new level. This figure represents his pique as a 9 time tag team champion and captures one of the true innovators of the duck face. With Christian’s return imminent, his quest for one more match will more than likely be captured. Now all he has to do is capture the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
