Current Ring of Honor star Christopher Daniels recently spoke with Vaughn Johnson of Philly.com, and discussed his career since leaving TNA and joining ROH, selling his comic book with Frankie Kazarian, wrestling companies working together, and more. You can read a few excerpts below:
Christopher Daniels Talks Ring of Honor:
It’s really good. I’m really enjoying being a part of Ring of Honor right now and I’m lucky enough to be able to work independent dates for companies like House of Hardcore, WrestleCentre up in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I just did Metro Pro Wrestling out in Kansas City weekend before last. I did FWE (Family Wrestling Entertainment) this past weekend in New York.
I’m free to go and work wherever I want to work and just trying to continue to build the name of our tag team, The Addiction [with Frankie Kazarian], up and around everywhere we can go.
Daniels on the demand for him (and Kaz) after leaving TNA:
Well, I feel like we were very lucky that I think the last year, year-and-a-half in TNA, I think people were sort of disappointed in how we were used. So when we left TNA, there was a good demand for us as a team … not just in Ring of Honor, but on the independent scene and overseas. I feel like we’ve been very lucky and will continue to be lucky that Frankie and I have had the opportunity to wrestle a lot of great team out on the independent scene and in Ring of Honor. It’s cool that we can sort of bring our act together around the world, around the United States to a lot of the independent companies and continue to do what we love to do.
Daniels talks about how his comic book has been received:
Very good, man. We had some very good reception from the comic. Actually, on March 1 Frankie and I appear on Comic Book men on AMC at midnight with the comic book and we interact with Walt Flanagan and the guys. That’ll be fun. We’re looking forward to doing a sequel soon. I can’t really announce anything specific yet, but hopefully within the next month I’ll have more details on another comic book.
Does Daniels think wrestling companies should work together more?
I think so, man. I think that there are a lot of benefits to that and the fact that it hasn’t happened in such a long time, there’s certainly a freshness to it that can be utilized for television. For example, if Ring of Honor and TNA decided to do business or if Lucha Underground and Ring of Honor decided to do something like that, there are different opportunities because you have to look at it in the sense that each one of those companies has a different forum to show their show.
