Plans For Christian's Return To SmackDown, Change Made To Lord Tensai's Claw Finisher
Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter- The claw slam that Lord Tensai uses has been modified slightly for safety precautions. The hold now comes from the standing position, giving the opponent the ability to land back-first. The original way of starting from Tensai's knee caused the point of impact to be on the back of his opponent's head.
The referee stoppages that they were doing in Tensai matches look to be done.
- Christian did not return at this past Tuesday's WWE SmackDown tapings, despite being advertised. Look for him to return once the Extreme Rules pay-per-view has finished. Christian is booked to be put in the World Heavyweight Title picture with Sheamus and Daniel Bryan.
