Christian, and anyone other former World Champion stepping down to the midcard should be no lower than IC level.
Christian IS a midcarder, as much as I don't want to admit it. A feud with Cesaro could be something relevant for Christian to do when he returns, because what else will he do? WWE don't know how to use Christian properly and I rather having him feuding with Cesaro than being completely directionless. Having Cesaro feud with a respected veteran and former World Champion in Christian will help establish both Cesaro and the US Title more, and that's good. Cesaro/Christian has the potential to be a very good midcard feud, with both being great wrestlers and Christian can carry the mic work, and the thought of that feud is much better than Cesaro feuding with a jobber like Alex Riley like you probably want.
