WWE Magazine: Then & Now

WWE Magazine: What was the most important thing on your mind during that time?

Christian: I was just new to the company and coming in, so the most important thing on my mind was trying to establish myself, trying to make my mark. I always kind of viewed getting to WWE as my ultimate goal, but getting here and staying here were two completely different things. Having longevity and being able to stay relevant for a long time was truly important to me. I always had confidence in myself, but I had to make sure to take advantage of every opportunity and also to create opportunities of my own.

WWE Magazine: Christian then vs. Christian now. And the winner is?

Christian: Christian now, without a doubt. I’m smarter. And I’m a little more sly. I just think I’m better at this age than I was back then, and that comes from experience. But if you were to ask that guy in the photo, he was pretty cocky, so he’d probably tell you that he would win…but he wouldn’t.

WWE Magazine: What are the current whereabouts of the outfit in this photo?

Christian: I still own this one. I think it’s packed away in a plastic container at home. I don’t have it marked or hanging up or anything, although I know exactly where it is.
