Where it all began! Many people have asked why Christian is my favourite wrestler. This is what made me love Christian from his first WWF match. It might sound crazy now, but the misunderstood (I decided) introvert in me associated those traits with Christians Brood character. There were 2 moments on Judgement Day 1998 when he won the light heavyweight title which completely won me over. When Christian performed his springboard crossbody outside the ring and then gave no emotion whatsoever. I thought that was cool as shit. Honestly, it reminded me of early Undertaker. Then he arguably got the pop of the night when he upset Taka Michinoku for the title but he almost seemed unimpressed that he won. There are just a level of apathy which for whatever reason appealed to me hugely. I felt like I grew up with the Christian character changes, which were subtle as time went on. Being able to suspend disbelief was far easier as a teenager who didn’t have the internet and didn’t have to listen to smart arse crowds on a regular basis. It was an amazing thing to truly support someone and almost take it personally if he lost and as time went on...if I felt that he wasn’t being used to his full potential. He’s also a beautiful man. There, I said it. Not that that was a thing though. I love Yokozuna. Never wanted to fuck him.
This was his first action figure. This set was a true revelation. It came out within a year of Christians debut and there really are no stinkers in the set. This one will always be special.

I dedicate this one to all the customisers that have made and can appreciate how hard it is to make a Cody figure, All decals and head mold done by yours truly
My sheer frustration as a Christian fan began at Vengeance 2005 when Chris Jericho was randomly added into the main event between Cena and Christian. Things got worse when Christian was not included on that years Summerslam despite being one of the most popular names in the company by that point. In a mind boggling move, Christian was moved to Smackdown but I chose to see it as a fresh opportunity to prosper on that show. He was given The Peep Show but the writing really was on the wall. Christian chose not to renew his contract but in a rare move, made 2 none contractual appearances for WWE before leaving. I was gutted when he decided to leave but I totally understood it. Because his contract expired, he didn’t have a no compete clause so he showed up in TNA almost immediately. I didn’t watch too much TNA but Christian being there certainly got me interested. They debuted him as TNAs biggest signing which sounds fine but when the next big signing (Kurt Angle) came in, it kinda shat on Christians impact from a fan point of view (more on that in later posts). He was built up brilliantly to take the NWA title from Jeff Jarrett and this figure from Marvel commemorates this. It’s a stunning figure. Marvel took care to make skin tone look realistic and he has his white tights underneath the amazing entrance gear. Marvel would go on to make my favourite Christian head ever but this one is pretty good. The pose in the box is spot on and being able to have toy NWA titles was very exciting because there were so many figures they could be used for.
