Christian says he has not retired, tells fan that Jerry Lawler is wrong
Christian and Chris Jericho hosted a charity bingo event “Drags to Riches” on Sunday night in Tampa, Florida with drag queens playing bingo. The event reportedly raised lots of money for charity and featured a Jericho & Christian super prize pack, which was won by a friend of Jericho’s.
Christian told fans at the event that he was not retired. WrestlingINC.com reader Alicia Fleming sent the following report below from the event, as well as the photo above:
I attended the charity event "Drags to Riches" last night in Tampa, Florida hosted by Chris Jericho and Christian. I spoke to Christian for a bit and asked him the burning question I've at least had since Jerry Lawler blurted out on RAW that Christian was indeed retired from the ring. His response, however, kinda surprised me since Lawler and Heyman both mentioned it on RAW. His answer was, "No, I am not retired." I then said, "well, Lawler said it on RAW." His response was, "I know, and he is wrong."
I have been a Christian fan for a long time and told him, "good," because he deserves to go out his way and not someone else telling the world. I then told him he deserves a retirement ceremony like Edge did. Christian smirked and said, "Well, I don't know about that." I then told Captain Charisma that indeed he did. He is that good and deserves so much better. So you can put it to rest, Captain Charisma himself said he is NOT retired.
I had a few other conversations with him and he was great and very sweet. As was Chris Jericho, he is a class act. I got both of their autographs, and a picture with them both [which is above]. I would be honored to meet both again if given the chance.
Just a quick note, the charity they were there raising money for sold 1,000 tickets. It was a great success and hope they do it again.
