William Regal vs. Christian from WWE 2009

Post by TJ Hawke:

This match was for Christian’s ECW Championship.

A twenty minute television match between two of the best wrestlers of the last twenty years (both of whom excelled at television matches) on a program that was mostly free of the whims of a crazy old man who refuses to sneeze is a recipe for success! Who would have guessed?!?

Before Regal did matches in WWE’s official developmental “territories” with Ambrose, Ohno, and Cesaro, he worked a ton of “high profile” matches in WWE’s unofficial developmental territory. Regal and Christian did not quite have the chemistry that Regal had with Cesaro nor the dynamic he had with Ambrose, but there’s a compelling quality to their work that is just undeniable to me. I think this would have benefited from Regal dominating a bit more or focusing more on one of Christian’s limbs. However, that’s just nitpicking to explain why I found a potential great match to only be good. 2008-9 ECW had some real gems, and this is but one of the matches from that time period that you should watch.
