Christian, also known as "Captain Charisma" is working his way back from the high ankle injury he suffered in November.

According to a report from, Christian wrestled at a live event in England. 

At the WWE Smackdown live event in Sheffield, England Christian teamed with Mark Henry to take on Booker T and Brodus Clay. Booker and Clay were victorious in the tag match.

Christian is in the process of returning from a severe high ankle sprain that he suffered last November. He was originally in the Wrestlemania 28 plans on Team Johnny but was pulled due to the injury.

This is very good news for the WWE because there are in desperate need for some star power on SmackDown. Randy Orton is staler than ever and Cody Rhodes is not being used properly. The only good thing about SmackDown is Daniel Bryan and Sheamus. This is definitely not enough to keep Friday nights interesting.

With Christian back in action soon, expect for him to be pushed into a feud with one of the top guys on SmackDown. A feud with Rhodes would be beneficial for both parties involved and the fans. Christian and Rhodes are two of the better wrestlers in the company, and a feud between the two would help put Rhodes over and ease Christian's comeback. 

Christian has done a great job of getting on John Laurinaitis' side, so putting him in a feud with one of the top guys won't be a long shot. Maybe Christian could even get "one more match" and win the World Heavyweight Championship.

Regardless of how Christian will be used when he comes back, it's good to know that one of the top guys will be back on WWE programming again very soon.
