Christian To Be A Part Of The Money In The Bank Pre-Show Panel

For the first time since The Authority stripped him of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, the WWE Universe will hear from Daniel Bryan in an exclusive interview on the Money in the Bank Kickoff this Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT. Not only that, but WWE fans will actually get to submit their own questions for Bryan by tweeting them, using the hashtag #WWEKICKOFF.

In addition to the interview with the ever-popular “Yes!” Man, the 30-minute show will feature key Money in the Bank match analysis from an expert panel hosted by Renee Young and featuring WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, Alex Riley and one of the most experienced Money in the Bank participants of all time, Christian.

What will Bryan, out of action since May 4, have to say about the status of his neck injury, let alone The Authority’s decision to strip him of the title or the resignation of his wife, Brie Bella, which was done in protest of an ultimatum from Stephanie McMahon? And what are The Beard’s opinions of this Sunday’s historic WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match?

Ezekiel Jackson Mentions Christian In Recent Interview With Wrestling 101

In a recent interview with Wrestling 101, former WWE Superstar Ezekiel Jackson was asked how it was like working with several superstars, including during his time on the ECW brand, where he worked with the likes of William Regal and Christian. Here’s what he had to say:

You joined the ECW brand in 2009, what was it like working with the likes of William Regal and capturing the ECW Championship?
I’ve been a fan of William Regal since his WCW days, I would watch him and yeah you could see he was this snob character but when he unleashed hell, you saw it, you felt it, and you would think to yourself, I don’t want to be in there with him. To be working alongside William Regal was a great in for me and that pointed me in the direction of the ECW Championship.

I then began working with Christian and I felt my wrestling elevated ten fold, because Christian is a phenomenal entertainer and athlete. I felt like I owned the world when I worked with Christian because it was so much fun. People ask me to this day, what is my favourite match during my time in WWE and my answer is always the same, it was against Christian at a house show in Mexico City. It was the first night I didn’t have to do a squash match and we had a blast.

It was great winning the ECW Championship at the last ever ECW show, that moment no one can take that away from me, I was a champion in WWE.
