Daniels Speaks on Turning Point Bout, Umaga/WWE Update

Nick Paglino

Umaga’s name has officially been added to the Alumni page of WWE.com.

The Miami Herald recently conducted an interview with TNA star Daniels. Below are some highlights:

"I feel like there was a lot of pressure on us to sort of match the first three-way that we did. Even though I felt like the match was different, I feel like quality wise we definitely stepped it up and sort of matched the original. I felt really good about it, and it’s always fun to get in the ring with Joe and A.J. I definitely put that as a high point in my career, and certainly the fact that I’m back in the main event picture in TNA is a big plus to me."

"If the company feels strong enough to put me in a main event, then it’s a vote of confidence in my favor. The fact that TNA let me and Joe and A.J. be the main event [at Turning Point] and the fact that I’m going to get a 1-on-1 shot with A.J. for the title [at Final Resolution] says TNA has a vote of confidence in my abilities as a professional wrestler. I’m glad they’re giving me the opportunity. They’re giving me the ball, and it’s my job to sink or swim. It’s up to me to perform to the best of my abilities and prove to the world and to TNA that they were right to put me there."
