Christian, the twenty-third Triple Crown Champion and eleventh Grand Slam Champion in WWE history, could be set for a return to the ring.
Having been away from televised wrestling for almost a year - his last appearance came in July 2012 when he lost to The Miz in a brilliant match on SmackDown.
The Canadian star has been dealing with various injuries over the past two years, after a series of hard-hitting and gruelling TLC tag team matches during the Attitude Era finally took their toll.
But per reports from the 'Wrestling Observer Newsletter' suggest he has been ready for a comeback for some time, with WWE's creative team apparently at a loss for what to do with him.
"Christian has been cleared to return to action," the reports explained, "but is waiting on WWE creative to come up with a storyline that will bring him back."
Reporter Dave Meltzer added: "Speaking of Christian, there was talk this week about finding a storyline to get him back going. He'll be back as soon as they come up with one, and I'm told coming up with one has been put somewhat on the priority list.
Is absence has not come as a surprise to many WWE fans - while undeniably talented, the company has always appeared reluctant to go all the way with him. Even during his run as World Heavyweight champion, he came off as an afterthought for a great deal of the time.
The 39-year-old will hope WWE puts some thought into it and comes up with a good plan to reintroduce the wrestler back to audiences.
While he probably won't return to the World Championship picture, the company can surely find some useful role for him - he's far too good a talent to just sit on the sidelines doing nothing.
Rumours suggest he can come back as a heel and feud with Miz. Their feud never really was settled. A renewed program with Randy Orton—with whom he has fantastic chemistry with in the ring—is another possibility.
