Following his departure, Christian has become somewhat of an unsung hero backstage. One insider had the following to say: “The biggest hero of the week is Christian for quitting on his own terms. He’s more of a dressing room hero than Jericho, who worked out his notice and stuck around for the Monday Night Raw the night after SummerSlam. Christian is seen as someone who was being pushed into a low downside, and walked out on his own terms.”
Much like Jericho, Christian has always been very wise with his money. He never lived a particularly lavish lifestyle and avoiding getting into debts that would tie him down to WWE.
