Christopher Daniels has hinted that his wrestling career could be over following SCU’s loss to The Young Bucks in an AEW Tag Team Title match on Dynamite.
SCU entered the match after going on an incredible winning streak in the company in tag team bouts that stretched back to December 2020. At that time Daniels and long-time partner Kazarian said that the next time they lost as a duo would be the last time they teamed together.
Daniels and Kazarian earned their title shot by defeating Jurassic Express, The Acclaimed, and The Varsity Blonds on the Blood And Guts edition of AEW Dynamite. Prior to that, SCU had confronted tag champs and former friends The Young Bucks for their change of attitude and alliance with Don Callis.
In a match that saw Christopher Daniels bloodied at the hands of Nick Jackson’s boot and the ring post, SCU fell to defeat after the Bucks hit Daniels with the BTE Trigger.
Following that defeat, Daniels took to social media to give the biggest hint yet to his future career plans, simply Tweeting:
“That might be all.”
That might be all.

If it is all for the 51-year-old, then it brings the curtain down on what has been a stellar wrestling career. Daniels debuted in 1993, working on the independent scene before being signed to a WWF developmental deal in 1998. He also made appearances for WCW towards the end of the company’s existence.
Christopher Daniels then made his name in Ring of Honor and TNA. In TNA, Daniels formed the Triple X team with Lo-Ki and Elix Skipper. Daniels and Skipper took part in the company’s first cage match when they faced America’s Most Wanted for the NWA Tag Team Titles.
Daniels’ stock in the company rose further when he took part in an epic feud with AJ Styles over the X Division Title. He took part in the only Dave Meltzer 5-star rated match in TNA history when he met Styles and Samoa Joe in an incredible 3-way match at Unbreakable in 2005.
Daniels first began teaming with Kazarian in TNA in 2011 as part of Fortune. They then went under the moniker ‘Bad Influence’ as they won the TNA Tag Team Titles twice. Both men returned to Ring of Honor as a team now known as ‘The Addiction.’ It was there they added Scorpio Sky to their ranks and formed SoCal Uncensored.
The popularity of SCU reached new heights when they began appearing regularly on The Young Bucks YouTube show, Being The Elite. They were part of the initial haul of talent signed when All Elite Wrestling formed in 2019. As well as his in-ring duties, Daniels is the Head of Talent Relations for the company.
