Captain Charisma has been out of action since August and according to F4WOnline (via WrestlingInc.com), Christian is set to return. And what better stage than WrestleMania 29.

According to the article, Christian's return is going to happen and it is going to happen soon. He will be coming back as a face.

So what does that mean for his role in his potential return at WrestleMania?

When you look at the matches on the card, John Cena versus the Rock, CM Punk versus Undertaker and Brock Lesnar versus Triple H, are all off the table to include Christian's involvement.

Also, Tons of Funk and the Funkadactyls versus Team Rhodes Scholars and the Bella Twins, the bout between Ryback and Mark Henry, as well as Team Hell No versus Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston, don't appear to be matches that Christian's return would fit in to.

So that leaves the Intercontinental Championship match, Randy Orton, Sheamus and Big Show versus the Shield, Chris Jericho against Fandango and the World Heavyweight Championship match for the possible platform for his reappearance.

If Randy Orton does turn heel, which is a possibility at WrestleMania, Christian could come out and spark an immediate feud between a heel Orton and a face Christian.

Having Christian getting involved in the Intercontinental Championship with Wade Barrett and Miz, could help boost the slacking feud between the two. However, I think the Miz will win this match, which makes Christian's involvement, if he is going to be a babyface, unnecessary.

One way I could see Christian being associated with Jericho and Fandango's match is that Fandango starts attacking Jericho after the match. Then Christian comes out and attempts to save fellow veteran Jericho.

This could lead to a tag team partnership for Jericho and Christian, or put Christian in his own feud with Fandango.

We could also see Christian get involved in the World Heavyweight Championship. This would be an interesting feud if Jack Swagger, whether or not he wins the title. Also don't forget that Christian is Canadian, which is a perfect angle for Zeb Colter.

But you also have to consider Christian's return in a match that isn't in place yet or in a backstage segment.

Antonio Cesaro was supposedly going to take on Sin Cara, but Sin Cara's injuries are probably going to prevent that match from happening. That has left Cesaro with nothing in line at WrestleMania.

If Cesaro is not in action, that would be a complete joke. Not only is he one of the best superstars in the ring right now, but he competes in a match on Raw every single week.

I expect a pre-show match to be added to the card and that could be against Christian.

However, if Christian does return, if he does it at WrestleMania, fans should be very excited. It is a potential future Hall of Famer coming back and a nice bolster of depth to the roster.
