Christian is not under contract with WWE after all but rather had been under a deal with FOX for his work on WWE Backstage. He made his in-ring return in January at the Royal Rumble.
Wrestling Inc is reporting that Christian is a free agent. Thus, there’s speculation he could be the big surprise at AEW Revolution, but that’s not confirmed. The following was written:
“I have learned that Christian is indeed a free agent. He had returned to action at the WWE Royal Rumble this past January after an absence of nearly seven years. There were some ideas discussed between WWE and Christian, and the company was interested in signing him. However, talks apparently fell through.”
