So is he in or not? With less than a week to go before SmackDown 1000, the big question is becoming what each of the big names are going to be doing. There are several major names being brought back in for the show and some of them are going to be big time draws for the audience. We already know some of their roles, but there is one important name who might not be around.
According to PWInsider’s Mike Johnson by way of Ringsidenews.com, Christian might not be appearing on the show. There is no confirmation that Christian will be at the show as he was never formally announced to be appearing. Christian was a regular on SmackDown Live for several years, winning two World Titles back in 2011. His longtime partner Edge is already scheduled for the show and will be bringing back the Cutting Edge talk show.
He’s done some big stuff on the show over the years.
Opinion: Christian isn’t the biggest star in the world, but not having him there would seem like a disappointment. I understand that there are bigger names but when you have Edge, who was a far bigger singles star in his own right, on the show it wouldn’t feel right to not have Christian there as well. Even a pre-recorded promo or a quick cameo would be fine and it wouldn’t feel right to not have him around.
Do you think Christian will appear? What do you want him to do on the show? Let us know in the comments below.
