William Jason Reso is a Canadian actor, podcaster and retired professional wrestler best known for his time in WWE under the ring name Christian, a shortened version of his original ring name Christian Cage that was also used during his tenure in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) Christian proved his worth in WWE from day one. In his first official bout in 1998 as a member of The Brood, the Toronto native set the bar rather high for himself by winning the Light Heavyweight Championship from Taka Michinoku. And he raised it every year since.
Christian’s knack for wowing the WWE Universe by executing innovative and high-impact maneuvers cemented his rep as a top-tier Superstar and led to some pretty epic victories alongside lifelong friend Edge during the Attitude Era. Together, the duo claimed seven stunning World Tag Team Championships and engineered some of WWE's most memorably absurd moments, including their infamous "five-second pose." They also pioneered the dreaded Con-Chair-To, a sadistic double-team strike in which both Canucks simultaneously whacked an adversary with a steel chair. This obsession with steel objects reached frenzied heights at WrestleMania 2000, where Edge & Christian, the Hardy Boyz and the Dudleys introduced the world to the first-ever Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match.
Captain Charisma eventually broke out on his own, birthing a pack of followers known as “Peeps” and winning numerous titles such as the prestigious Intercontinental Championship. In 2009, after taking a four-year sabbatical from WWE, he returned to his hardcore roots to win the WWE-relaunched ECW Championship twice in one year.
