Christopher Daniels Talks About CM Punk’s Success, Why He Never Joined WWE & More

TNA star Christopher Daniels recently spoke to Here are some highlights of what Daniels said about:

TNA President Dixie Carter: “You know, she’s given a lot of people opportunities that they may not have had, if it wasn’t for TNA,” he said. “And the fact that she came around, and helped TNA last, it’s a big deal for a lot of us. Those of us who have never had that opportunity with WWE, we’re on a nationally televised wrestling promotion, and we’re living our dream.”

Why He Never Caught on with WWE: “I think that they never really saw anything that they could really sink their teeth into,” he said. “Which is OK, because you know, the truth of the matter is I was never really their type of wrestler. Or when I was, or now that I am … I don’t know … I’ve already got ties to TNA, or Ring of Honor, or wherever I was, at the time.”

Fellow ROH Alum CM Punk: “I think it’s great, man. He rose to the top at a time where it seemed like John Cena might be the only person that WWE would give that opportunity to. You know, it took him a while to sort of find his groove, but I think it’s a testament to his hard work, and his stubbornness to stick with it. And to finally break through and hold a World Heavyweight Championship for more than a calendar year … that’s a big accomplishment, especially in this day and age. It all goes back to the effort he put in to get there in the first place, and the effort he put in to stand out, and be somebody that the crowd wanted to see.”

    I completely agree with everything that Daniels said in there… maybe he isn’t as stupid and retarded as TNA are making him look.

    • Reality

      Good job at being able to discriminate real life persons and characters. You must be really clever

      • WWEFan4Life

        It was a joke… but, you want to be a smart- ass? Go ahead.

        • Reality

          omagaaaaaaaad that was soooo funnyyyyyy!!!!

          • WWEFan4Life

            I Know, Right?

  • SOBI

    With more Indie guys now coming to the wwe
    wwe and Daniels both should consider some business together

  • Reality

    I remember reading the article saying WWE wasn’t interested because Daniels looked too slim.

    • G.I.R.L.

      I thought it was because of his age they didn’t want to spend the time or resources it would’ve taken to build him only for him to retire a short few years later.

  • Pozessed

    I truly think that this guy is one of the most talented wrestlers in the world today. I agree though with what he said, in TNA he can do a lot more high flying moves with a lot of other great high flyers so I am quite happy that he has stuck with TNA.

  • Jesse

    He didn’t catch on in WWE because hes an eye sore, and doesn’t have enough skill to compensate.

    • Mafia Is Forever

      He’s A Beast In The Ring

  • wwetnadudez

    Theres one major reason Daniels should never jump ship, that is his just perfect tag team with Kax and the reason I love the guy, the tape he wears on his fingers

  • Oreial

    wwe championship moron

  • Bam Bam

    Glad he didnt go to WWE they wouldnt know how to use him.

  • morph_3

    Going to WWE isn’t the end all – be all. WWE would make Daniels look like a joke and ruin his career and legitimacy as a wrestler.
