The word going around last night’s SmackDown tapings in Albany. NY is that Tyson Tomko has signed a new contract with World Wrestling entertainment. Tomko was partnered with Christian Cage before he left WWE back in 2006 to work overseas for New Japan Pro Wrestling.

He would eventually sign with TNA where he was reunited on camera with Christian. He held tag title gold in Japan with Giant Bernard (formerly A-Train from WWE) and with AJ Styles in TNA Wrestling. His New Japan commitments caused issues with TNA, which ultimately led to his departure. After working more in Japan and doing one more surprise appearance in TNA earlier this year, he began talks with WWE.

With Edge back in WWE and Christian expected to return there by the end of the year, many expect that we’ll see Edge, Christian and Tomko involved together in early 2009, whether teaming together or feuding.
