Young discussed the fact that Christian could be in for a title run, which Sparks emphasized. One of the main topics discussed was the idea that WWE should treat Christian like Brock Lesnar.

The reason for this is even though he has returned, he shouldn’t be used on shows weekly. The reason for this is that Christian is a big card player now and should be booked accordingly. 

Bringing him in weekly would take off that spark that he has brought with him on his return. Furthermore, there are exciting avenues he can explore by reserving his character for only the biggest events.
