“Christian moved to Orangeville in the sixth grade and he had a ninja star that you could get out of the, like if you filled up this thing in the back of Karate Illustrated and sent in and paid for, it could get a ninja star.. so he moves to town and he’s got a ninja star and that’s super cool, especially in the sixth grade.”

“So, he had offered to sell it to me and I thought ‘yeah I gotta buy this ninja star because that’s amazing and it was real’… so after school that day, the transaction is going to happen, right? We’re sitting there talking and he goes ‘yeah you know, I don’t think I want to sell it. It’s pretty cool, I want to keep it’. But in the midst of that conversation we started talking about Hulk Hogan and then we both realized wait, you like wrestling too!”

Edge and Christian shared several milestones together

In the same conversation, Edge revealed that he and Christian spent their school years, college years, and even trained around the same time to become wrestlers.

“We started talking about Roddy Piper, we started talking about Ricky Steamboat and started talking about all of these different wrestlers. Because of that we remained friends all the way through school. We went to college together, we lived together in college. I started training to become a wrestler about a year and half later he started training to become a wrestler. Then I got to the WWE and they had heard of him and then they finally brought him in as my brother. Suddenly, we weren’t brothers anymore and we were Edge and Christian. We’ve just had so much fun over the years!”

The last time Edge and Christian were together at WWE was at Royal Rumble 2021. Christian had kept his appearance a secret, and even though Edge stayed with him prior to the event, the Rated-R Superstar had no idea.

They shared a brotherly moment when Christian appeared, and returned to the match. Edge won the event, and went into a storyline with Roman Reigns while Christian made his AEW debut.
