• Christian Reveals Why He Wasn’t Involved In The Feud Between Edge & Randy Orton
During the rivalry between Randy Orton and Edge this year, there were rumors of Christian getting involved in it somehow, as he’s Edge’s best friend.
The former World Heavyweight Champion was recently interviewed by Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT, where he revealed why he wasn’t a part of the angle:
“No, I think the way it played out and obviously me being on a non-contact list that kinda makes that…you can’t really do that.”
He said that because of the “current situation with that” it made things impossible. He also stated that it would be hard to “go out there and not do anything.”
I asked Christian if there was any pitch for him to get involved in the Edge and Randy Orton storyline leading up to WrestleMania.
It appears being on the 'no contact' list put that to bed. pic.twitter.com/TwXI4rkn1n

For those who don’t know, Christian was forced to retire from in-ring competition due to concussion issues.
Speaking of this rivalry, Edge and Randy Orton are set to return on RAW next week.
