You can add another name to the list of wrestlers released from WWE last week. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Christian was released by the company in addition to 9 other talents.
The contract Christian was released from was reportedly his performer’s contract, and not his Edge and Christian Show deal. WWE hasn’t used Christian in action since his most-recent concussion back in March 2014. Christian was on Chris Jericho’s podcast earlier this month and said that while he’s not “officially retired,” he doesn’t think he’ll ever wrestle again.
Christian made his WWE debut in 1998 as a member of The Brood, and went on to win the Tag-Team Championships multiple times with Edge, Lance Storm, and Chris Jericho. He joined TNA in 2005 and became a World Heavyweight Champion, then returned to WWE in 2009 to become an ECW Champion and two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
The Brooklyn Brawler, Damien Sandow, King Barrett, Hornswoggle, El Torito, Alex Riley, Zeb Colter, Santino Marella and Cameron were also released last week.
