Longtime WWE Star Released From His Active Performer Contract

WWE has released Christian (real name Jay Reso) from his active performer contract. Christian’s last match took place in March in 2014. The reason that his career was cut short was due to him suffering too many concussions. Christian never officially retired from the ring but Vince McMahon would not ok him to wrestle again because of his history of concussions.

Christian is the co-host of the “Edge and Christian Show That Totally Reeks of Awesomeness.” Christian had a successful run with the company as he won the WWE World Title twice, ECW Title twice, Intercontinental Title four times and the Tag Team Titles nine times.

Christian joins Wade Barrett, Damien Sandow, Santino Marella, Hornswoggle, Alex Riley, El Torito, Zeb Colter, Cameron, and “Brooklyn Brawler” Steve Lombardi among the names released from the company recently.

    He should go into the HOF in ’17

    He has not been released from the company. The fact that he is doing the network show proves he is still contracted, just not as a wrestler. Was Steve Lombardi not contracted then? His performer contract was terminated years ago.

    He should get to do a farewell on RAW or something.
