TNA wrestler Christopher Daniels spoke with TSC, the Sports Courier, on the evolution of Bad Influence, his feud with Joseph Park, and a whole lot more.
The formation of Bad Influence:
"We saw the writing on the wall in terms of tag teams in TNA. Beer Money had just split up. Motor City Machine Guns were battling injury. We sort of saw that there were no plans for either one of us as a singles. So we decided to pool our efforts and try to be the next Beer Money, the next MCMG for TNA."
Their creative control:
"Throwback Thursday is 1,000% our idea. 95% of the ones we've done have been Frankie's idea. The only one that was a co-effort was the Legion of Boom. Throwback Thursday came around just because one of us said to the other, 'do we have the balls to wear zubaz in the ring?' And then every other one we've had has been, 'do we have the balls to wrestle as ____.'
TNA and the creative guys have been very cool as far as giving us blueprints of what they want to see, but letting us sort of fill in the blanks."
Final 11/18 Raw Ratings
The final rating for the 11/18 edition of Monday Night Raw was a 2.73, which is exactly the same as last week's show. With Survivor Series coming up this Sunday, next week's show should be a decent draw for WWE.
The NFL brought in almost 5 million more viewers for Monday Night Football this week than last week, so Raw hanging on to the same rating for a second week is actually a pretty good sign heading into the pay-per-view. As we reported earlier, the show had an average of 3.802 million viewers, a slight increase. The second hour had the best viewership, followed by the opening hour, with the final segments bringing down the score overall.
