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.

If you are hearing chatter about a million dollar lawsuit being filed against WWE by Edge and Christian, you need not take that too seriously, as it is simply a story line that has been concocted by the company to keep the former tag team champions involved. The real life close friends have already filmed segments for the next episode of Smackdown, where they are scheduled to explain their fictional legal actions against the corporation.

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.

Even though WWE has not utilized him as an in ring performer in quite some time now, Christian remains a very busy individual. He recently filmed an episode of Haven with his childhood friend Edge. Now, the two of them are apparently doing something else together in the entertaining industry. Through social media, they revealed that they just worked with William Shatner on an unspecified project. They praised him for being an acting legend.

WWE is hoping to give their fans a nice little holiday treat before the year ends. The company has decided to bring Edge and Christian on the final episode of Monday Night Raw. No word yet on what the two of them will be doing or what they will be promoting, but the former world tag team champions were recently on an episode of Haven together. Neither guy is likely to ever wrestle for the company again, but management likes keeping them around.
