Christopher Daniels Reveals He Was Planning To Retire In 2018


AEW coach Christopher Daniels recently revealed his original plans to retire from professional wrestling in 2018 during an interview on Talk Is Jericho.

“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.’”
