Vince McMahon Fired Up, Christian Off WrestleMania 28 Card

— On Monday’s RAW, WWE ran an angle where CM Punk finally snapped as a result of Chris Jericho’s taunting and delivered a devastating beatdown on . It was announced during RAW that was injured and “was medically ruled out” of the Team Laurinaitis vs. Team Long match at WrestleMania 28. WWE.com is reporting that re-aggravated his neck injury and cannot compete this Sunday.

No word yet on whether Christian is legitimately injured, but the fact that he’s been pulled from WrestleMania just days before the show is an indication he is indeed injured.

Drew McIntyre will replace Christian on Team Laurinaitis.

is said to be “fired up” as WrestleMania 28 approaches this weekend.

McMahon apparently made several revisions to the RAW script on Monday and has not been indecisive at all. One source backstage described him as “energetic.”

Vince also apparently struck up several random meetings with talent backstage to talk about their storylines, which is unlike him.

    Let Drew give Team Laurinaitis the Win I said this for while but for Team Long, but since roles are in reverse, he needs this. As for Christian Bad timing for the guy, legit or not you taking away a Top Mid card superstar from WrestleMania, better let him feud with Cm Punk somewhere down the line due to this…

      That will not happen.

    • BrahmaBullRKO

      Like I had said before, this is the perfect chance to finally give Drew that renewed push. He can get the win for his team and be rewarded with a US Title match at the next PPV. It makes sense seeing as how Santino did contribute to his losing streak.

        Miz or Drew should do it only to rekindle their status with the Losing streak they had for while. It would be similar to MVP 

        • Jmc60

          Miz will probaly pick up thw in even though Drew should

          • DAX

            Miz isnt doing anything for me. He just goes out there and thats it. I just dont care about The Miz. And thats a problem. 

          • Jmc60

            Miz is okay he needs to work ALOT in the ring

       Well, we all know that this match is for those who didn’t on the cards of WM to have something to do. So I don’t really think the audience pays attention to this one. Which team wins really doesn’t matter. And anyone on the team isn’t likely to shine even when he does well.

      I would want to see Khali being attacked by Team Johnny then pulled out, only for Team Teddy to replace him with Goldust. Seeing Booker-Goldust reunite then wins for their team is a good ending to make the fans happy.

        well said

  • R2C

    Christian sucks. annoying and does not deserve a title. one match wrestler out of the picture. Christians is as big as EY no1 cares. CMPunk will retain at mania. chrisjericho is boring and old and should quit. & to gets decent hair doooo

    • Aiii

      You know what sucks? Your spelling.

      • http://twitter.com/RomulusVonFlex Romulus Von Flex

        he got his point across. Christian is a mid carder at best who the internet marks get hard over. He is a small dude.

        • askbillmitchell

           News flash, so is Rey Mysterio, so is Jericho, so was Ric Flair, so was Bret Hart, so was Benoit all midcarder right? Could it be possible, that people witnessed Christian carrying another organization on his back as a their “world champion” and he proved that he could be championship material? Could it also be plausible that the Internet marks, realized that Christian more than paid his dues in the WWE and thought there should be so return on investment on behalf of Christian’s part?

          • indywrestler22

            Plus,to add to your point,Christian won a world title before Edge did.He most definitely can carry a show.Look how he put over sorry ass Orton last year.

          • http://sescoops.com rated_maxx

            Here is my thing with the iwc. When they get who they want as champs the ratings go down

          • askbillmitchell

             Incorrect observation. The ratings went down when it was leaked that Christian was a champion for two freak days. (Smackdown tapings occur on Tuesday’s and air on Friday’s) That was a complete let down, and the IWC had nothing to do with that, that fell squared on the shoulders of WWE booking and “creative”. To make matter worse, they thought it would be funny to play hot potato with the title, and thrust Christian in an obnoxious role, of always asking for one more shot which got really old really fast.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MJSIX46ANAVMWZKZPKIB57H5J4 Noah L

             WWE made a deal with Orton in order to move him to the B show, they made him champion. They used the Edge sympathy to get ratings and PPV buys for the World title match between Christian and ADR. They never planned on having Christian be a long term champion. Miz on the other hand was given 6 months with the title. Though they booked him weak, they kept it on him and gave him a win over Cena at Wrestlemania, only ther second time a heel champ defended his World title at Wrestlemania.

          • askbillmitchell

             Again, attributed to the absent mindedness to WWE creative. The same team that quite frankly impressed me they were able to book Cena/Rock long term, I didn’t think they didn’t have it in them.

          • DAX

            I dont think that WWE needs to make any deals with Orton. He is under contract and needs to do what he is told. Like a good little robot that he is.

          • TheKillingMoon

            Fail. Again. Some things never change besides your soiled diapers.

          • FullMoonFever

             This guy needs to go away.

          • http://twitter.com/RomulusVonFlex Romulus Von Flex

            Ric Flair was a mid carder? Mid Carder does not refer to the size of the person, it is their drawing power for selling tickets. No one has sold more house show tickets than ric flair. No one goes to shows to watch christian wrestle, it just doesn’t happen. He wasn’t even a big draw in TNA.

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MJSIX46ANAVMWZKZPKIB57H5J4 Noah L

            Have you ever heard of a guy named Hulk Hogan. I don’t care how much you like Flair or that he is a better “wrestler” than Hogan was. Flair has admitted on air that Hogan was a better draw than he ever was.

          • askbillmitchell

             Hogan just had the better marketing machine behind him. The same marketing machine that partnered with the most watched television network of the 1980’s NBC. I am sure THAT had a lot do with Hogan’s success. Not discrediting Hogan, but I am talking physical ability not marketability. I COULD be a bigger draw than Ric Flair, if I had Hogan’s marketing juggernaut behind me.

          • indywrestler22

            Just like some cat named Stone Cold Steve Austin!!Bigger draw than either of them.

      Comparing Christian to Mysterio, Benoit,Y2J,  Flair and Hart is laughable. Those guys are all way more over than Christian has ever been. Flair was almost never a mid-carder. Y2J has more character. Mysterio is flashier and the kids love him. Flair, Hart and Benoit had more wrestling ability than Christian ever had. This all translates into drawing more money. I like Christian but he can not carry the WWE as a world champ or WWE champ. And welcome back rated maxx. I look forward to your trashing of WWE and telling us how awesome Impact is.

        we don’t really know that due to the fact both his title reigns have been short (1st reign = 2 days, 2nd reign = 28 days)…if he was given the same chance The Miz was when he won the WWE Championship then honestly I think he’d be able to pull it off…I mean…I know TNA is a smaller company and all…but he managed to do it there…and he carried the WWECW brand when he returned up to the point WWECW ended…so it’s possible that he could carry the WWE if he were given a proper chance

      • Michael

        Actually yes, he can, and wwe knows it, their just too obsessed with Orton right now, and its a miracle they finally gave Bryan and Henry a shot at the title. They wouldn’t even let big show have it for more then a minute when he won it from mark.  Christian was the main draw for the WWe Ecw and Tna.  And he can carry the wwe. Orton as world heavyweight champion drew low ratings last year along with cena, but apparently they have held the WWE title more then 5 times each. Holding the title doesn’t mean anything anymore.

        • http://twitter.com/RomulusVonFlex Romulus Von Flex

          christian was the main draw for wwecw and it fucking failed, do you not see your idiot logic?

  • pwnez

    I was surprised to see that raw didn’t have much talking; however, there was plenty of squash matches to be seen. The only two things I liked about raw was Cena/Rock promos and Cody Rhodes promo. This was probably one of the worst builds for WrestleMania ever.

    • Kaylyn Owens

      I know, right. I kept telling my mom they were all squash matches. Not the best Raw before WM show I’ve ever seen.

    • Bushwald Sexyface

      Cody’s promo was hilarious. I love how much he’s evolved over the past 2 years. 

      • pwnez

        I took a big show earlier. Ha, Cody is one of my favorites.

    Seeing Punk raging on Christian that intensely reminded me of the old wild heel punk..I miss that

    Why is it that  we always get people showing up who constantly talk out their @$$ this time of year

    I heard that they thought that Christian’s heel was 100%, but turns out this isn’t the case

    • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

      that’s what I heard…and btw it was his ankle not his heel…=P

  • Kaylyn Owens

    Sucks to be Christian. And who isn’t fired up? WM is in 5 days.

  • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…I HATE YOU CHRISTIAN’S ANKLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…YOU’RE A WHORE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…the caps was necessary…but on the bright side at least Drew replaced him…=)

    Last time I found Christian that interesting he was posing for people with flash photography alongside Edge.

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    Of course Vince is fired up. He’s returning on Sunday.

  • Fireworks Ts

    Christian is a victim off the era he’s from , the attitude era had no room for people who didn’t move the needle or didn’t have larger than life personality , even Mark Henry had a title run during this down period of wrestling. Had Christian been a up and comer nowadays he’d definitely be a top star and to the dumbass who says Captain C is to small , look @ DB and CM Punk… I don’t think they’d be mistaken for bodybuilders.

  • Jmc60

    DAMN!…….well at least we got Drew what am I saying fuck yeah Drews on the card!

  • DAX

    Vince McMahon is fired up? Look out linda or he will go Genetic Jackhammer on you.

         Money wise she already did.

    Then Vice has lost it. The final showdown between The Rock and Cena was VERY BAD. I don’t know how he would want it to end like that. It’s as if they want to build momentum but don’t want to make Cena a bitch.

    Hate those speechless-Rock segments for recent RAWs when Cena’s talking pointless trash. They only allow the Rock to speak when Cena’s not in the same ring with him. Freaking idiots.

  • Austin91

    Maybe if Christian wasn’t so skinny and fragile, he wouldn’t be injured so much…

    • ProgressNow2012

      ye because the Undertaker is so fat himself!

  • DOOOSHBAG

    YAY!!! we now know Y2J is staying in wwe so PUNK is gonna get screwed by CHRISTIAN in WM and Jerciho will win !!!! :D :D :D
