The tag team of Edge & Christian once achieved a level of success so great that the editors of WWE.com recently declared them the greatest tag team in WWE history. (MORE) Then Edge won the 2001 King of the Ring Tournament and followed it up by becoming the Intercontinental Champion at SummerSlam 2001, just one year after he and Christian won the first-ever TLC Match.

Discontent with his partner's moment in the spotlight, Christian challenged his brother-in-arms for the title one month later at Unforgiven and justified it as an opportunity to realize his own personal hopes and dreams. Christian won the same title he now holds again, and showed no remorse for stepping over his former tag team partner to do it. (WATCH)

More than 10 years later, it would seem that the Canadian-born Superstar has put his past behind him. He even inducted his once greatest enemy, Edge, into the WWE Hall of Fame just months ago. Their friendship withstood their struggles in the past and so has Captain Charisma's connection with the WWE fans.

The Intercontinental Champion knows that if he keeps smiling, the WWE Universe will keep smiling with him. Despite his reputation, it's hard not to, especially after the Captain took down a cunning, blackhearted Superstar in Cody Rhodes ... someone who actually shares a lot in common with the Christian of the past.

Yes, the keeper of the Peeps certainly bears the qualifications to bring prestige back to the Intercontinental Title and WWE fans have quickly embraced their new champion – but at what cost? Considering a history of jealousy and other nefarious traits, what might Captain Charisma do to stay on top after injuries and setbacks kept him from it for so long?

For now, the WWE Universe can merely trust that this Christian really is for the Peeps. And, if the signature smile proves to be a signal of another con job during his current title run, all we can do is simply grin and bear it.
