Christopher Daniels recently spoke with ROHWrestling.com about various topics. Here are the highlights.
On whether or not he needs a ROH World Championship reign to put a stamp on his career:
I feel like I’ve done enough in my career where people will respect my contributions, so I don’t know if I need the world championship, but I certainly do want it. I put the idea of being world champion aside for a while in concentrating on the tag team with Frankie. I do have that pang of regrets sometimes. I feel like I’m being a little selfish, but at the same time, we’re all a little selfish when it comes to being World Champion. I’m sure Frankie would feel the same way.
On if he’s thought about a post-wrestling life:
I haven’t given any concrete thought to it. I don’t know if I see it yet from where I’m at, but I know it’s closer now than it’s ever been. It’s still hard to put a date on it or say, “Oh, I’ve got two years or six months or five years.” I certainly feel some of the matches a lot more than I did even three years ago. But at the same time, I know I’m one win away from being a champion again. If Frankie and I are given the opportunity, I feel like we can be World Tag Team Champions. And now with the Decade of Excellence tournament final, I could get an opportunity to be world champion finally after 15 years of Ring of Honor’s existence and 24 years of being in this business. This could be my shot, and so when things like this happen, it’s hard to say, “Oh well, I’m only going to do this another year or two years.” This opportunity clouds the finish line for me.
