Christopher Daniels on The LAW right after Destination X
Jul 12, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
From John Pollock:
Christopher Daniels joins The LAW on Sunday night immediately following his match with A.J. Styles at the ‘Destination X’ event. Daniels chatted about the match with Styles, the reaction backstage to the show, his status with Ring of Honor and even his thoughts on the ‘X-Men: First Class’ movie. To catch the entire interview you can download the show on iTunes and at http://www.thefightnetwork.com/data/podcasts/800/2011-07-11.mp3. The LAW airs Sunday nights at 11pm EST on Sirius 158.
Reaction to Destination X and if this will spark a change:
I was walking in and out of the back as some of the show was going, and to hear the reaction from the people that were in the building – if that is indicative of what happened outside of the building, if that’s indicative of the pay-per-view buys of the fans that watched, then I feel like their voices have to be heard. You know the people were very energized tonight, they were energized for everybody, they were energized for the action. That’s what I think brought the buzz to TNA in the first place – having that difference from everything else that was going on. You know hopefully people look at the results tonight and they go “‘You know what this is – this is the direction that we should follow. This is the direction that we should put some effort into’.
His status with Ring of Honor:
Well I’ll never say never, man. Right now I’m concentrating on TNA, I’m not going to say that I’m done with Ring of Honor. All I can tell you is stay tuned.
TNA taking ‘Impact Wrestling’ on the road more often:
Well, I wasn’t here when it happened, but the tapings that they had in Fayetteville,North Carolina earlier this year were very well received. I think they looked great on television, and just to have a different crowd..not to knock the Orlando guys, but I think that it just freshens up the product to be seen in different places. Hopefully it’s the small steps forward that “Impact” has always been making that I feel has been our best bet. You know we take these small steps forward rather than these huge lunges and fail. We take a little bit of a step forward and try and grow a little bit each time, and if this is the next step, I’m all forward, man. I’m looking forward to it.
