Trivia / Christopher Daniels

Go To

  • Acting for Two:
    • Has wrestled for TNA under the Christoper Daniels, Curry Man & Suicide gimmicks, with some overlap between the the gimmicks - Curry Man was introduced just before Daniels was written out, Curry Man was written out as Daniels took over the Suicide role, and Daniels was reintroduced just before he relinquished the Suicide role.
    • Would eventually be lampshaded, as the Motor City Machine Guns "figured out" that Daniels was the man wrestling as Suicide. However, rather than reveal this was the case, the story revealed that Daniels wasn't Suicide - in reality, Daniels had relinquished the gimmick back to Frankie Kazarian, who was returning from injury & Daniels had been standing in for.

  • Name's the Same: As a black minor Blade villain in Marvel Comics. Actually a dual case of this, as said character's Super alias was actually Suicide. Definitely worth mentioning to him, as he is a huge Marvel fanboy, after all.
  • Playing Against Type: While running an operation to destroy Ring Of Honor, Daniels put off his Michinoku Pro dates, coming to some of them after bell time, to ensure he did not miss any part of ROH. Yeah, he might take jabs at the fan base and the code but he obviously likes the promotion more than he lets on. Furthermore, every departure from Ring Of Honor he took was not of his own volition.
  • Real Song Theme Tune:
    • (Daniels in ECW) Head Like A Hole (Slate Remix) by Nine Inch Nails
    • (Daniels IWC, PWG, ROH) Disposable Teens by Marilyn Manson
    • (Curryman in MPW and ROH) Guerilla Radio by Rage Against The Machine

  • Theme Naming: His son Joshua Allen Covell shares this with AJ Styles' firstborn son Ajay Covell Jones, both of them having a middle name after the other's father (Josh is the younger by 6 months) as well as the same three letters as their initials.
  • What Could Have Been
    • Was supposed to play Vampiro's dark master "Syndrome" in WCW, but the angle was scrapped.
      • Similarly, according to Bruce Prichard he was the original choice for the Higher Power in WWE, but Vince McMahon shot it down.
    • The original pitch for the Bad Influence gimmick/angle was Daniels black mailing Kazarian by threatening to reveal Kazarian was sleeping with AJ Style's sister. AJ turned this down because he wouldn't be upset by it, so Claire Lynch was the next pitch. Daniels later admitted it wasn't a very good idea but at the time he was willing to take any excuse to team with Kazarian again.

How well does it match the trope?
