Why did christian leave the wwe?
On October 31, 2005, Reso quit WWE. According to Dave Meltzer, he was asked on the spot to sign a new contract. He declined to sign the contract, and his last match occurred during the tapings for the November 4, 2005 edition of SmackDown!. Despite his quitting, Christian would appear on RAW and at Taboo Tuesday 2005.
Contrary to prior rumors, Reso later claimed during his debut speech at Genesis 2005 that WWE did not lowball him on their contract offer; in fact, supposedly, they offered him "a very hefty sum" to stay. He had made the decision to leave months before his contract expired, and had agreed in principle to terms with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling prior to his departure. In that promo, Reso made several criticisms of WWE, citing the disproportionate amount of screen time allocated to Paul Levesque (Triple H) and the use of distasteful storylines, and claiming that WWE had become, like the now-defunct WCW before it, "old, stale, and lacking direction".
In August 2006, WWE challenged Reso's attempts to trademark the name "Captain Charisma", saying that it will cause confusion in the marketplace because the persona was created while Reso was under contract to WWE. WWE feels that anything that Reso called himself in WWE belongs to WWE. As a result, TNA has stopped selling Captain Charisma merchandise until this issue is resolved.
From May 2007 onwards, Reso began calling himself the Instant Classic, suggesting that WWE has been ceded the rights to the "Captain Charisma" name.
Now, Independent circuit
In March 2006, Cage competed three times in the United Kingdom for the 1 Pro Wrestling promotion as a part of the All or Nothing event. His first appearance came on March 4 in Doncaster, England when he beat Rhino in a semi-main event match. Cage no-showed his scheduled appearance on night two of All or Nothing. His actual second and third appearances were on two consecutive nights as a part of the Know Your Enemy event, where on night one he beat Steve Corino and on night two lost to Corino and Abyss in a three-way-dance for the 1PW Heavyweight Championship.
In May 2006, Cage made two appearances for the Ring of Honor promotion. His first appearance was on May 12 in Long Island, New York, at "How We Roll", in a tag match with Colt Cabana against Ring of Honor World Champion Bryan Danielson and Christopher Daniels. Cage and Cabana won the match after Cage pinned Daniels. His second appearance in a singles match against Christopher Daniels, who pinned him after an Angel's Wings. After the match, Daniels invited him to come back to Ring of Honor any time, and Christian accepted Daniels' offer.
He is concentrating on his acting. In March 2006, Reso began filming his part in Shoot 'Em Up, a film due to be released in September 2007. Reso has a short speaking part, that of a Secret Service bodyguard for a United States Senator.
He was being used as a jobber right before he left.
was that the guy who killed his wife and kid??
A number of factors he was burnt out from being on the road. He thought that his push wasn't coming even tho he was super over with the crowd. And also he was getting bored of wrestling so he needed a shake up.
Because the WWE kept jobbing him out when he felt he could be a very solid heel talent for the company. For awhile there, his Captain Charisma persona was starting to build a strong fan base, but for some reason the WWE went in a different direction and started to job him out to everyone and their mother.
In TNA he knew he would get a fair shot with a much less grueling schedule, so he went there. Now he is a 2 time TNA champ, and ever since TNA landed him and Angle, their ratings continue to grow.
he got tired of wwe, and wanted to go to TNA, where he is a main eventer, and making good money
He wasn't getting a push.And I guess he was burnt out being on the road 200 days a year.He was jobbing to a lot of guys as well.He also was known as the CLB - Creepy Little Bastard.
