This makes lots of good sense. Daniels is a multi-time X Division and TNA/World Tag Team Champion. He is a TNA Original Star, never having been significantly in WWE. TNA owns a substantial library of great Christopher Daniels matches so he is a valuable asset to TNA, and that value only grows with his return. He has been out of TNA for quite a while so all match-ups with him will appear fresh. He has history with Sting, having worked a program with him.
The arguments against Daniels are few, but are likely focused on some in TNA creative blaming him for the angle with Sting not being as strong as hoped. Of course, both TNA creative and Sting may have been as responsible. Also the aborted Triple X re-teaming did not go so good either and might also be his heat rather than creative’s.
One thing appears true is that Curry Man, who may be Chris Daniels, and the other popular comedy characters are not being used much right now by TNA. Regardless of the fact that Curry Man has performed in some great matches as a wrestler including both Terror Dome Matches and the World X Cup series, it appears that TNA creative has lumped him into a comedy category, and he may not even be booked for the X Division Contender match at Turning Point.
