I'm obviously biased, but I think he proved that he is main-event material during his TNA and ECW runs, the latter of which featured probably the best modern babyface world title reign I've seen. He did so again last year despite being booked as a whiny chickenshit who never won on PPV.
Like if you measure on Bret Hart's scale of 1-10 for wrestling ability, promos, and look the anti-Christian people would probably acknowledge he's pretty high up in wrestling ability but his promos and look leave a ton to be desired.
I can see how his lankiness might be a problem for those who want to see 'roid physiques, but he's still over 6' and in very good shape, especially for his age. (I mean, at the risk of sounding like Kevin Nash, have you seen who's been WWE Champion for the past year+?) Facially, he doesn't really look any older than Cena or Punk. As for his promos, that's an odd criticism when talking about a guy in a promotion which has Cena, Orton, Sheamus, del Rio, and Miz in the main event/uppercard. I'd say he's one of the few guys in the company who can talk at all.
Anyway, I've always wondered whom the "Christian belongs in the midcard" crowd feels should be main-eventing. Do you want a three-way Ironman match between Punk, Bryan, and Ziggler every month? Because Internet fans seem to hate everyone else.
