Yes you read that right, current WWE Intercontinental Champion Christian is returning to TNA this weekend at Slammiversary. TNA President Dixie Carter confirmed the news via her Twitter:
"On a plane headed to Dallas for the big PPV this weekend. Very excited @Christian4Peeps is joinin us for the night. He's one of my favorites"
It appears that Christian's one night appearance for TNA is the exchange TNA gets for allowing Ric Flair to appear at the WWE Hall of Fame this year. I never thought we would see the day that WWE and TNA would openly exchange talent in such a way, but the fans are the real winners in these situation. Speculation is already abound that Christian may be the first inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame which takes place at Slammiversary, but he seems like an odd choice being his run in TNA was relatively short although he is a former TNA Heavyweight Champion. Another possibility is Christian being involved in the ceremony and maybe inducting whoever the inductee is. It is highly unlikely Christian would be wrestling on the show, but it sounds like he will indeed be making an appearance at Slammiversary this Sunday from Arlington, Texas and on pay-per-view.
