Christopher Daniels On Turning Point, Claire Lynch, Best Match, WCW, More

Posted By: Caylon Knox on Nov 18, 2013

Christopher Daniels On Turning Point, Claire Lynch, Best Match, WCW, More

TNA Impact Wrestling star Christopher Daniels spoke with The Sports Courtier.

TNA Turning Point this Thursday: "Let's be honest, Bad Influence is the most entertaining part of Impact Wrestling today, and a television show that doesn't have Bad Influence on it is just ready to be changed the channel upon. I'm definitely interested to see what happens in the matches with Magnus and Samoa Joe, the matches with Bobby Roode and James Storm, especially with Bobby Roode, my EGO partner. I'm also interested to see what happens with Joseph Pancake vs. Abyss. I'd love to see a train run through the middle of that ring at the exact moment where those two behemoths lock up for the very first time."

Him being around for the death of WCW:  "Yeah, I guess. I mean you can't really… I was sitting at home collecting a paycheck for the last three months of the company. That had nothing to do with me. It was their decision. Actually both times I was under contract with WCW they didn't use me very often. They never really had a spot for me creatively, and I just sort of fell through the cracks."

Continuing career after WWE bought WCW and ECW died: "I just figured there was going to be something that came along. Part of it was I didn't really have anything that I wanted to fall back on and I was still successful. I was staying busy and earning my living as a professional wrestler, as crazy as that sounds. In the mid 90s, eh, I'd say 98-99, when I became sort of a full time professional wrestler vs. wrestling on the weekends and having a full time job, I was doing well with my independent schedule in the United States and going overseas to Japan. I was earning a very good living. When WCW closed, when ECW closed even, I never had any sort of relationship that lasted very long, just because those two places closed…there were still plenty of opportunities for me, as a professional wrestler, to earn a living, It may not have been a living that was on a very well lit stage, but I was still earning my money and that really was the bottom line, for me, getting into professional wrestling. I always said my goal was to make a living doing what I wanted to do. Since the middle of 1999 that's what I've been fortunate enough to do."

TNA World Heavyweight Championship: "I feel like, despite the fact that Frankie and I are the best tag team in the business, we still have our singles goals. We just know that we don't have to give up our tag team to become singles champions. It's just a matter of an opportunity. Right now with all the focus being put on this title tournament, guys like Bobby Roode, James Storm, Kurt Angle's still in the mix, Jeff Hardy's still in the mix. These guys are fighting for the opportunity to become the new TNA World Champion. After that happens, whoever ends up winning the tournament, they're going to find a list of guys ready to become World Champion if the opportunity arises, and two of those handsome men are Frankie Kazarian and this guy."

His best match: "It's hard to say greatest match. I can tell you that one of the best ones, or at least the one as soon as it was over that I felt like I did the best job as far as what we had in mind and what we put across to the fans, and the most well received, was probably the three way match with AJ Styles and Samoa Joe at Unbreakable. I think that even, what is it, eight years later, the people still talk about it as one of the best in company history and I think it stands the test of time. A lot of it has to do with the timing of it, the fact that the fans at that time wanted to see three guys step up and show the world that they were ready to be main event players and I think we did that."

AJ Styles, Claire Lynch: "I don't know many friends of AJ Styles. Frankie and I used to be friends with AJ Styles but we weren't invited to join this particular group, but I hear there is a newsletter and jackets, but I don't have one. I don't think Claire Lynch is a friend of anybody involved with TNA."
