• Major Update On Christian’s In-Ring Future In WWE
At Royal Rumble 2021, former World Heavyweight Champion Christian competed in his first proper match (not counting the one he had with Randy Orton last year) after 7 years, when he entered the Men’s Royal Rumble match, which was won by his best friend and former Tag Team partner, Edge.
PWInsider is reporting that Christian was cleared to wrestle a week before the Royal Rumble when he visited Pittsburgh. The belief is that he’ll be working a part-time schedule going forward.
He kept his return a secret, and started warming up for the Royal Rumble match. Very few people knew about his return before it took place.
Captain Charisma stopped wrestling in 2014 after suffering a concussion.
