Christopher Daniels may be an unforgettable talent in the world of wrestling, but he almost called it quits in 2018. He was supposed to retire since he had already done everything he had set out to do and would not renew his contract with Ring of Honor. However, with the introduction of AEW to the scene, things have changed a lot with him now wanting to be in the ring again.
“When we pitched the idea, the original idea was that it might be my transition out of the ring. My idea in January 2018 was Frankie and Sky would be there, I wouldn’t get my contract renewed, and I would return as whatever the authority figure was going to be. I thought, ‘I’ll be 49, that’s a good number to transition out of the ring.’ Now, I am 49, and I realize, ‘I don’t want to get out of the ring.’”Christopher Daniels
