Current Ring of Honor World Champion Christopher Daniels recently spoke with Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV. During the interview, he was asked about whether WWE would sign him. He said that he doesn’t think so. He said that he is sure that WWE is not looking for 47-year old rookies and that’s fine with him. He said that the timing of his career worked out where when he might have been interested in going to WWE, there were times where he was under contract with Impact Wrestling or Ring of Honor. He is fine with that and is happy to build up ROH as best as he can.
When asked about AJ Styles’ career in WWE. He said that he doesn’t know if there’s a meteoric rise in WWE like Styles since Brock Lesnar or Kurt Angle. He said that for Styles to debut and become the World Champion and defend it as long as he did before losing it to John Cena at the Royal Rumble all in one year is astonishing. Daniels praised Styles and that it’s well deserved as Styles worked so hard to get where he is today. He noted that Styles left Impact Wrestling and took a chance on himself as he went to NJPW and showed the world that he is elite of the elite and then came to WWE and proved it again.
