Christopher Daniels talks success with Kazarian, working as a heel
Oct 17, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
The Miami Herald posted an interview with Christopher Daniels ahead of the Bound for Glory PPV event. Here are a few excerpts:
- On working heel: “It’s easy being [the heel],” Daniels said. “I don’t like a lot of people, so it’s easy to me to be the bad guy, but honestly, what Frankie and I do, the types of people we are; we’re sort of smart #%^^^; we’re sort of snarky guys, and it comes across well on television — the way we act, what we do, our wise cracks and our nonsense and tom foolery. It’s entertaining, and in the end I have no problem with people wanting to see me get beat up. I’m fine with it.”
- Working with Kazarian: “Frankie and I, as the best tag team in the company, the best tag team in the business, it’s up to us to set the standard,” Daniels said. “We’re going to go out there, the first match of the night, and set the bar for everyone to meet, and then later when we wrestle for the [TNA] world tag team titles, we’re going to show the world why we are the best tag team.”
“Because Frankie and I have been friends for such a long time — we traveled the roads together — when we decided to come together as a tag team, we knew that we were going to gel really quickly,” Daniels said. “There wasn’t a feeling out process. We knew each other, and one of the reasons why we were so successful so quickly is because he and I have the same mentality when it comes to tag team wrestling. We understand that the way a tag team succeeds is if both individual members put the team ahead of the individual desires.
“We kept being successful no matter what’s been put in front of us.”
