TNA wrestler Christopher Daniels on retirement rumors, TNA Title ambitions, and the evolution of the X Division
Jan 10, 2013 - 09:20 AM


Wrestle Shark interview with Christopher Daniels
Hosts: Simon Cassidy and David Thomson
Interview available at Facebook.com/BigWrestlesharkShow.


The evolution of the X-Division: "I think it's a testament to the guys who have come through, I think the guys that were most succesful were the guys like myself who had worked around the world and were given themselves the opportunity to showcase and hone their talents. The first name that comes to mind is obviously AJ, he had opportunity to travel the world and hone his craft before TNA came around, the same thing with Samoa Joe, he had travelled Japan and worked extensively and very hard on the independent scene. He had had his Ring of Honor career and by the time he came to TNA he was ready to show the world who he was and he stood out...

"As the years progress, TNA knew they had something good with the X-Division, then they started building their tag and heavyweight division, and it became one of many good divisions as opposed to the 'stand out' division. It goes through waves, there are times when there are a plethora of talent and times when it takes a backseat. But I think with the current crop of talent, guys like Zema Ion, Sanjay Dutt, Kidd Kash...I feel like there are so many good guys there now...so many guys that can kick it up a notch and go in the X-Division, but are still viewed as major players overall."

World Title Ambitions: "Anyone who is not trying to be the world champion is wasting their time. It's always been a goal of mine, and honestly right now I feel like I'm as close to the world title as I have ever been. The company has a good confidence in me, to give me opportunities and I feel like I've shown the world I can play at the top level...I feel like I've shown the world I'm ready to be the top guy and be a major player. It's just a matter of waiting to see if I get given that opportunity, your guess is as good as mine, but at the moment I'm feeling positive and just waiting for that opportunity."

Rumors of retirement: "I don't know where that started, I'm not looking to retire any time soon. Right now I feel I'm doing the best work of my career. My first goal was to get to 20 years, and in one month that will be the case...I've always said the minute it stops being fun I'll stop. But I'm still having fun, I'm still doing what I love, I'm working with great guys, I'm in good condition, I've been lucky to have had very few injuries over my career...I'm not looking to hang the boots up anytime soon."
