With Edge making a comeback at WWE Royal Rumble, many have wondered if Christian will follow in his footsteps.
Christian retired in 2014 due to concussion issues and while he has continued to make appearances for WWE, he has yet to return to the ring. And by his own account, he sounds content with that decision.
"My situation is much different than Daniel Bryan’s. He was, what, in his early 30s when this happened? I was in my 40s, so very different parts of our careers, and I feel like I’m content with what I accomplished," Christian told Alex McCarthy of TalkSPORT. "I just don’t feel the need to go back and dip my toes in the water at all. For Edge, he felt the need to go back and instead of having the end of the story written for him, write it himself. That window he never thought was going to open for him and after almost nine years, it’s pretty much unheard of. It’s all about memorable moments and for me, he created a huge moment at the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania; it wasn’t in the setting everyone thought it was going to be and not necessarily in the setting he wanted it to be, but it’s the state of the world. So I think it became really important for him to go out and put this match on to provide some entertainment for fans and an escape for people. And I think that was important. Whether there was 70,000 people in a stadium or he was in a Performance Center with just cameras, him coming down that ramp was one of the greatest moments in WrestleMania history, in my opinion."
Christian joked that he could accompany Edge to the ring and let Edge to all the wrestling.
He also noted that because he's not cleared for contact, he could not take an RKO from Randy Orton in the lead-up to Orton's WrestleMania match against Edge.
