Christopher Daniels Hoping To Return To AEW TV Soon

Daniels hasn’t been featured on AEW TV since May 2021

Since SCU were forced to split in May 2021, Christopher Daniels has not featured for AEW, with former partner Frankie Kazarian taking a turn as ‘Elite Hunter’ in the wake of SCU’s demise.

Now 51 years-old, Daniels spends most of his time tending to his role as AEW’s Head of Talent Relations, but as he revealed on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, ‘The Fallen Angel’ hopes to return to AEW TV soon:

"Hopefully, that changes soon, but the landscape with AEW is in constant flux; additions, subtractions, it's just a crowded field right now but hopefully, I can make my way back there. There is no real timetable as to when that might be so I'm sort of at the mercy of circumstance.”

Sharing a locker-room with fellow veterans Billy Gunn, Sting, and Matt Hardy has only lit a fire under Daniels, and he hopes he can return to an AEW ring and prove himself:

"I feel excited to try and be ready to wrestle,” Daniels continued. “It all depends on the situation. I'm readying myself for these Independent shows and I'm also readying myself to get the call from Tony [Khan] like, 'Hey here's what we want to do when you come back.' I'm in a difficult position at this point because I'm sort of unsure what the future holds for me. A lot of it is just me being prepared and trying to get as good as I can get at this age and still trying to be relevant. It's a tough lane to stay in, for me.”

Since his on-screen hiatus, Daniels has performed on the Indies, for NJPW STRONG, and had a return match in IMPACT, but has more recently been seen on Being the Elite, where his left eye is still bloodshot after the SCU break-up last May:

"It's more cosmetic than anything,” remarked Daniels about his eye. “I've been checked a couple of times, the vision is fine. It's just gnarly looking. When I talked to the doctor about it, he said this can happen on occasion, haemorrhages just don't drain or heal. It doesn't have anything to do with the iris itself, it's just the white of the eye that is sort of discoloured. It could dry up in a week or it could be like this for awhile, I have no idea. This is the first time it's ever stuck with me. I've had this injury before, not this eye, but I've had haemorrhages before from black eyes and things like that, but for some reason, this one is just sticking.”
