[WWE News] With no build up or hype Christian made a return to WWE TV last night on the live ECW broadcast from Fresno. His appearance was said to be a creative decision that only came about in the last few days. He was originally slated to return to the mix in the Jeff Hardy-Edge program but when word leaked out early Vince got mad and nixed the idea and went with Matt Hardy in that spot. Christian has apparently been told that ECW will be built around him as champion and he will also be occasionally crossing over to Smackdown too.. [reported by Mike Aldren]
