Is Christian returning to WWE?

Okay. Christian Cage happens to be one of my favorite professional wrestlers and there is a lot of talk that Cage is done with TNA and is heading back to the WWE very, very soon. In fact, it looks as though he is being written off of TNA television tonight on Impact. According to spoilers the Main Even Mafia are going to "take him out" and banish him from TNA for good.

Take this with a grain of salt as TNA creative is forever keeping tabs on WWE (as well as internet dirt sheets which have been predicting Cage's move as well) and this could all be one big swerve.

However, it is also rumored that Edge's return has been delayed in an effort to have him return with Cage in tow to be the babyface antagonists to the very heel Big Show and Vicki.

I have been a Christian fan for a long time and have called him my favorite wrestler in numerous occasions. I always thought that, although he may not have the "look" and physical size that Edge did, Christian's star always shone brighter when they were a tag team.

Since Christian's departure from WWE, I have called Edge my favorite wrestler. Not because he's on WWE or because I don't follow TNA, I do, it's just no matter how many complaints one may have with WWE creative, they have done a great job with Edge. While TNA (whom I do give kudos to for making Christian a legitimate main eventer - something WWE could never figure out how to do) seems to be pretty much out of ideas for Christian.

Christian's return to the WWE excites me for a number of reasons...

One - there's no question which company is the top company. Say what you will about WWE, but it's the main stage - it's where every performer wants to be and it will be nice to see Christian return with some success.

Two - TNA, as stated earlier, as done a great job of legitimizing Christian as a main event caliber performer and with WWE putting guys like CM Punk, Jeff Hardy and Chris Jericho in their main event picture, it doesn't seem so crazy to think he could have a title run.

Three - Christian's return will do a lot for Edge and the WWE. First, and perhaps most important, it's imperative that WWE figure out a way to add some juice to their tag team picture. Enter Edge and Christian. Arguably one of the greatest teams in WWE history, they could have themselves a great feud with guys like Miz/Morrison and Cody/Ted Jr and even Carlito and Primo. But, even better the return of an old friend can give Edge a new lease on life. While I never gotbored with Edge as a main event heel, it'll be nice to see a different side to him. He's been a heel for a number of years now, so a baby run (even a short one) could do a lot to revitalize the former champ.

Of course, Christian's return is not set in stone but I really hope it happens.
