Christian has been kept off the road recently so he can rest the back injury that he suffered a few weeks ago during the cage match against Chris Jericho. Christian has been suffering painful back spasms stemming from the injury, and it the only real cure is a good amount of rest.
This injury is the type of injury that just needs time, and Christian has already been out nursing the injury for weeks. It is expected that Christian will be healthy enough to return on RAW next week, as management within WWE continues to show confidence towards Christian in being a key player in the company who they can build big storylines around.
