Source: DirecTVDirecTV interviewed Christopher Daniels ahead of last Sunday's TNA Bound For Glory pay-per-view. Here are a few highlights from the interview:
Daniel Bryan recently calling him a good friend and if he's still friends with guys from his indie days: "Absolutely. First of all, Daniel Bryan is probably top of my list as far as being one of the nicest guys and one of the guys that's worked the hardest. Watching him go from the Texas indies, to the Ring of Honor days, to where he is now – it's just a testament to his desire and his hard work. Then there are guys like AJ Styles and Samoa Joe, both former World Champions, we went through the indies together and Ring of Honor together. Those guys have both worked very hard to reach the top of the ladder. Lo-Ki is another guy I've had extensive experience with in the ring and on the road. And then Frankie Kazarian and I have traveled around together for the past decade and a half honing our craft and now we're the top team in TNA. You build a relationship with these guys traveling around the world, keeping your nose to the grindstone to become better and I think working with such talented guys like that has helped me become as good as I am now."
His dream match: "I'd have to say Chris Jericho. He's always been someone I've looked up to as a fan and over the course of my career I've always looked at him as sort of the perfect blend of athleticism and character. I've said time and time again that he was a compelling guy on the microphone and once the bell rang he could get it done. He was that perfect mix of athlete and entertainer."
Special TNA moments: "I thought when Samoa Joe won the World Title was a special night. That was an instance where TNA sort of got out of it's own way and let the competitors speak for themselves. The build for Joe versus Kurt Angle in the cage was perfect and it was a well-deserved victory for Joe. It was his first world title but not his last, I don't believe. But even if it was, that was a career defining moment for Joe and a really good moment for TNA as a company."
Daniels also discussed which wrestlers have given him his best matches in TNA, his early influences, his wrestling style, advice for wrestlers trying to enter the business and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
