At the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, Christian made a surprising return during the Men’s Royal Rumble match, entering as the 24th participant.
Christian’s return was shocking for most fans because only a few months ago he had said that he wouldn’t return for another wrestling match.
Following his Royal Rumble return, Christian talked about his return backstage.
“It was surreal [to be in the ring after 7 years] to be honest with you,” said Christian. “I didn’t know what to expect. You know its funny, everybody has a plan until you get hit. And that’s exactly what happened to me. I got hit once and I was like, ‘ok, its on.’ This is what I was born to do, so I felt like I was home.”
The former World Heavyweight Champion said that he still has got one more match in him. Perhaps, WWE is considering booking him at this year’s WrestleMania too.
“What’s next for me? All I ever promised was one more match. That could be it!”
