• Old School Wrestling Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School Wrestling Veteran “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels (Real name: Daniel Christopher Covell) celebrates his 50th birthday today.

Christopher Daniels was under developmental contract with the World Wrestling Federation from 1998 until 2000, where he was mostly used as a Jobber on shows like Sunday Night Heat & Shotgun Saturday Night.

He then wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 2000 & early 2001, followed by more televised WWF Jobs in 2001, mostly on Jakked/Metal.

Daniels eventually made a name for himself in Total Nonstop Action, where he wrestled from 2002 till 2014.

He also competed on pretty much all the bigger indy companies, which earned him the unofficial nickname “The King of Indies”.
