• Christian Set To Come Out Of Retirement On Tonight’s RAW
On tonight’s post-Backlash edition of RAW, 13 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton opened the show and bragged about winning the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever against Edge.
Orton called himself the greatest wrestler ever. Orton talked about how he tore Edge’s triceps and that he would be cleared to return in July…July 2029 (implying that Edge would take another 9 years to make a comeback).

This led to former World Heavyweight Champion and Edge’s best friend, Christian, coming out and confronted Orton for saying all these things.
Orton told him to shut up and said he’s just jealous, because he wants “one more match” but can’t get cleared by the doctors. Orton says he has a way around it.

Orton then challenged Christian to an Unsanctioned Match on tonight’s RAW and says the offer expires after tonight, he better take the opportunity and get revenge on Edge’s behalf.
As we noted earlier, Christian is set to do something unexpected, so this obviously means he’ll come out of retirement for this match tonight.
