William Jason Reso (November 30, 1973) better known by his ring name Christian, a Canadian actor, podcaster and retired professional wrestler who performed in WWE.

Reso was trained by former professional wrestlers Ron Hutchison and Dory Funk Jr., and made his wrestling debut in May 1992. Reso wrestled in Canadian independent promotions early in his career, where he frequently competed in singles and tag team competition with longtime best friend Adam Copeland. In 1998, Reso signed a developmental deal with the World Wrestling Federation and was rebranded as the storyline brother of Edge, Copeland's WWF persona. Reso made his debut the following year and immediately captured his first title in the company, the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship. He and Edge gained notoriety as a tag team for their participation in Tables, Ladders, and Chairs matches and winning the WWF Tag Team Championship on seven different occasions. The team parted ways in 2001, after which Reso held various heavyweight singles titles. He first challenged for the WWE Championship in 2005, which began his transition to a world title-level performer.

In late 2008 and re-signed with WWE, where he joined the company's revival of ECW. In April 2009, Reso won the ECW Championship, eventually losing the title only to regain it in July, during which he became WWE's longest-reigning ECW Champion. After ECW was shuttered, Reso went on to capture WWE's World Heavyweight Championship twice in 2011, making him the only wrestler to have held the ECW, and World Heavyweight Championships. Between WWE, Reso held 21 total championships (including six world titles) and headlined multiple pay-per-view events. He is the twenty-third Triple Crown Champion and the eleventh Grand Slam Champion in WWE history.
