Reports surfaced online this week stating that WWE officials pulled Christian from television since he's expected to appear at next month's TNA Hall of Fame ceremony in Phoenix, Arizona as part of an agreement the rival wrestling organizations reached to allow Ric Flair to appear atWrestlemania XXVIII. According to PWInsider.com, the reports are incorrect.
Multiple WWE sources state that Christian requested time off from the road since there were no major storylines planned for him and to also rest his ankle. He is still having trouble with his ankle, which sidelined him late last year and at the start of the year.
It is not known when he will return to the ring although he was at one point scheduled for next week's television events in Canada.
