Matt Striker: Why do they call you Captain Charisma? Is there a story behind that?
Christian: You can't tell? If you've gotta ask, then you don't know.
Christian: You might call it cheating, I call it savvy. That's what I call it. You see, a guy like Jack Swagger, you know, he's big, he's strong, he's bigger and stronger than me. That will only get you so far. You see, every time he comes down here, he looks out, he sees ropes, he sees canvas. I come out here, I see a chessboard. I'm constantly moving pieces around, I'm changing my strategy, I'm throwing my opponent off his game. That's why I'm the ECW Champion, that's why I outsmarted Jack Swagger.
