For those of you that are wondering, Christian is still under contract with WWE. The former world heavyweight champion has been sidelined for quite some time because of injury concerns, and there is a very good chance that he will never wrestle against for World Wrestling Entertainment. The man legally known as Jay Reso is still making money from the company but not nearly as much as it would be if he were actually on tour.

While most wrestling fans already know that he is no longer an active in ring performer, WWE has finally cemented the deal on the retirement of Christian. The former world heavyweight champion has now been officially moved to the alumni section of their website. He had remained on the active roster for quite some time after he stopped being an in ring performer. No word yet on what is next for Captain Charisma.

On a previous episode of Monday Night Raw, Jerry Lawler informed the WWE Universe that Christian is now retired as an in ring performer. That disappointed quite a few people, who were hoping that he would still be able to entertain us in the ring. However, the former world heavyweight champion has reportedly been telling fans that he is not retired and that Lawler was incorrect. Not sure if he was just working the audience or not, though.

Those that watched Monday Night Raw, heard Jerry Lawler calling Christian a retired performer. For those that are not aware, it was not an error, as the former world heavyweight champion has now been declared an inactive member of the WWE roster. The company cannot risk him having any more concussions, as they are concerned about his long term health. He is, however, still under contract for approximately another year, so he will be around.
