Why has Christian not been seen on WWE television?

As we reported exclusively here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium last week, Vince McMahon gave a directive to make sure Christian is not prominently featured on WWE television until after he appears at TNA Bound For Glory next month. The idea is McMahon wants Christian to appear in TNA "cold." We were the first publication to break this story despite others running it without credit this week.

Is Edge still under WWE contract?

No, Edge is no longer under WWE contract. His deal expired on April 30, 2012 and while the company tried to re-sign him to a deal that would allow him to still making appearances, the two sides were unable to come to terms. I was told Edge wanted something like what Shawn Michaels has to the tune of a reported $300,000 per year and WWE wasn't willing to pay that much.

Any shot Sin Cara gets a chance in the title scene?

WWE officials are high up on Sin Cara because of his international appeal and kid-friendly masked character, however, he is not seen as a main event talent in terms of WWE Championship or World Heavyweight Championship material. If WWE goes forward with plans for a show dedicated to cruiserweight talent, he's expected to be the focal point and would obviously be a viable candidate for cruiserweight champion should WWE decide to bring the title back.

Why is Tensai continue to get on television? Could WWE at least revert his character back to Albert?

While it's clear Tensai's push is over, he's still getting on television because he's under contract and the company is seeing what they can get out of him. As for WWE bringing him back as Albert I guess it's not out of the question since Tensai has failed but they are now booking him as a mid-card heel talent.

Remember questions with proper spelling and grammar have the best chance of being answered. Due to vacation, the next installment of Ask WNW will not run until Thursday, September 13, 2012.
