At the age of 50, Christopher Daniels is closer to the end of his career than the beginning, but he still has plenty to give in the wrestling world.
In AEW, Daniels fills multiple roles on-camera and behind the scenes, and while he can still go in the ring, he knows his spot is no longer at the top of the card.
"I don't necessarily feel there is anything I want to do other than contribute," said Daniels on AEW Unrestricted when asked about his in-ring future. "I don't think there is a burning hunger in the wrestling world to see me wrestle anybody. I don't know if there's anybody going, 'I wish Christopher Daniels would wrestle Jon Moxley on Dynamite.' With the level of talent we have in AEW, there might be some fans who want to see me on Dynamite, but the honest truth is; the time to feature me as an act has sort of passed. I'm okay with that. My best efforts now are to wrestle younger guys and help them get better if I can. If that happens on Dynamite, great. If it happens on Dark, also great. That's my focus now. Wrestle guys who are under contract with us and see if I can help them not make the same mistakes I made or I see other young wrestlers make. Who can I wrestle to build up and help give them credible wins? I feel like wrestling me and beating me means something, though it seems like everyone does it these days."
Daniels has actually been flourishing on AEW Dark alongside his SCU partner Frankie Kazarian. The duo is currently ranked number one in the official AEW rankings.
