Christopher Daniels Explains How Calculated Risks Have Helped His Longevity

Christopher Daniels says his "high risk maneuvers" aren't very dangerous. 

At 48 years old, Christopher Daniels is still wrestling in high-profile matches in Ring of Honor and independent wrestling promotions around the world. In an interview with Monsters and Critics, Daniels talked about the twist and turns of his professional wrestling career including leaving Ring of Honor for Impact Wrestling and then coming back in 2010. Daniels said his style has always been to perform moves he knows he can successfully pull off without injury.

"I have always tried to do the things that I know I can do no matter what part of the match it was in. I’ve always told other wrestlers that, in terms of staying safe and staying smart, you do the things that you can do whether it is the first five minutes of the match or the last five minutes of the match," said Daniels. 

While he does not consider himself a "high-flyer" he admits from an outsiders perspective a 48 year old wrestler pulling off moonsaults might seem funny but he knows exactly what he's doing. 

"Whatever acrobatic things that I do that seems high risk to other people, to me it is a very calculated risk. Those are the risks that I take any time I wrestle. I know that no matter what I am doing. If it seems dangerous, it is something I know I can do 10 times out of 10," said Daniels. 

This Friday will be Ring of Honor Best in the World but Daniels and his SoCal Uncensored team mates Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian are not scheduled for a match. Fightful will have live coverage of the event.
