City Pages recently interviewed Christopher Daniels in anticipation of the company returning to Hopkins, MN for a live event on Apr. 28. Here are some of the highlights:
What it’s like to finally hold a World Title:
“You can’t always have stories with 15 years of history like mine. But by having the ability to really find who you are as a performer? It makes the guys happier to do their job — and it shows. This is a hard job, because it is so physical and grueling. But you should enjoy it. And if it becomes a job, it’s probably time to stop doing it.”
How The Young Bucks are helping to shape the wrestling industry:
“You get guys like the Young Bucks, who are one of the most popular acts in wrestling, and they aren’t good guys or bad guys. They just come out and wrestle and entertain, and that’s what our fanbase expects.”
What his future goals in the business are:
“If you would have asked me six months ago, I would have told you that I never needed a world title to complete my career. Now that I have it, I’m truly grateful. But my goal now is to give back to the industry and the organization itself, and to create a higher standard for Ring of Honor. I was to make the show bigger, make the fanbase bigger, and keep building on the success of the past 15 years.”
