The past few weeks in AEW have been tumultuous to say the least, with the extreme highs of a returning Kenny Omega immediately followed by several reports of backstage unrest. Numerous situations involving the likes of CM Punk, Hangman Adam Page, Thunder Rosa, Eddie Kingston, and Sammy Guevara have all been unearthed following an initial report regarding CM Punk’s unplanned callout to Page on the August 17th edition of Dynamite.
Despite these reports however, Christopher Daniels believes everything is running smoothly behind the scenes in AEW, as he told the Headlock Wrestling Podcast at Gamescom in Germany that they’re in the process of implementing the recent backstage changes.
“The wrestling internet sees what they see from the outside. Everything is going fine in AEW. We just promoted Tony Schiavone, QT Marshall, Sonjay Dutt, and Pat Buck. We’re tightening the ship and trying to get everything in a good place for us. Right now, we have a successful television show. Dynamite is doing very well for TBS, Rampage is doing well for TNT. Hopefully, the international fans are enjoying it as well. Everything is going very well for us, we’re very happy for the success we’ve had and we’re going upwards and onwards,”-Christopher Daniels
Daniels then revealed that he hopes to continue his in-ring career within AEW following his match with Evil Uno at Gamescom, although his priority is to help AEW out in a backstage capacity.
“I hope I can do more in the ring, but either way, I’m going to be doing a lot for AEW, whether it’s in the ring or behind the scenes,”-Christopher Daniels
AEW’s Gamescom appearance was a roaring success for the company, with new footage being shown of their upcoming title AEW: Fight Forever further exciting those anticipating it’s release. Additionally, AEW: Fight Forever took home Gamescom’s best sports/racing game award during the event, a positive sign for fans waiting to pick the game up later this year.
