Christian is medically cleared so he should be returning soon. WWE just has to book him for something.
At this point, Christian has to come back as a face. His heel run was a disaster in that it never got the desired reaction. Christian is better than a one dimensional heel character that can't get a reaction from the crowd. He'll probably should be placed in a tag team since he's the biggest name currently on roster that could realistically be placed in a permanent tag team and help bring some prominence to the tag division. If Christian isn't going to get Cesaro or Barrett at WrestleMania, then throw him in a tag team and have a TLC match at WrestleMania.
And I'm not sure why he should retire unless he wants to. His two previous injuries were bad luck that could happen to anyone. That's not really the definition of injury prone. Who knows what happened with this latest injury since there hasn't been an accurate report. WWE hasn't mentioned it at all. For all we know, he could just be taking time off until WrestleMania season.
Other than bad luck, there isn't any known signs of him slowing down and he can still work very well in the ring. There's still fans who want to see him perform. He has years left at this pace and to retire would just cut his already lengthy career short.
