John Corrigan of The Temple News recently interviewed Christopher Daniels. Here are a few highlights from the interview:

TNA’s recent struggles: “We’re definitely not going to be done by December, for goodness’ sake. I think we’re going through some growing pains. We’re still trying to find our legs with being on the road. I don’t think there is trouble in the sense of imminent doom.”

Recent releases and his contract expiring next year: “I’m sorry to see some of the people who have left in the past couple months leave, but hopefully contract negotiations mean they’ll have a chance to come back. All I can really count on is me trying to stay relevant on the scene from now until my contract expires in the middle of next year, not that I’m counting the clock ticking. I’m just trying to stay entertaining on television for as long as I can.”

Not getting over with Vince Russo: “There was a time when he was pushing really hard for me to do something with Sting, and then somewhere along the way it fell apart and I never got a firm answer on why. In the past couple months, I guess in some interviews that [Russo] has done, he said that I cared more about wrestling good matches than having a character. I guess that was his reasoning for why I never got over in his eyes. I look at what I’m doing now and [Russo] isn’t there, so you tell me, was he right or was I right?”
