— TNA announced a non-title match between Miss Tessmacher and Gail Kim for iMPACT! this Thursday. Tessmacher is set to face Tara for the Knockouts Title at Bound for Glory. They may do an injury angle due to Tessmacher’s hamstring injury over the weekend. That is by no means confirmed just yet though.
— Promoting next Sunday’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view event, Christopher Daniels addressed a number of TNA topics in an interview with Jeff Wilen of The Daytona Beach News-Journal, including the Aces & 8s storyline.
“I know our company has sat down and mapped up where it wants to go months ahead of time,” he states. “The end result will be something months of effort have been put into.”
As the current TNA World Tag Team Champions, Christopher Daniels and Kazarian have dubbed themselves “The World Tag Team Champions of the World.” He explains the label.
“With the idea of being a team a year ago, we saw a lack of long-term tag teams in TNA. We decided to do a tag team and be a tag team like Motor City Machine Guns and Beer Money. Other circumstances have allowed us to be the best tag team in our company right now. I feel we’re the team to beat. I feel we’re the target. We’ve set it up so we’ve made the belts mean something,” he said.
Now 42-years-old and having wrestled since 1993, Daniels doesn’t plan on hanging up the boots anytime soon.
“As long as I don’t prostitute my principals, I see many, many years of wrestling left,” Daniels said of his future in wrestling. “My goal is to get to 20 years. In January, I will be at 20. I’d love to get 25 or 30. I probably will still be in the business after wrestling, maybe in play-by-play or color commentary. We’ll see. I don’t see an end to my in-ring career yet.”
Daniels also addressed company morale, the Claire Lynch storyline, Austin Aries vs. Jeff Hardy at Bound For Glory, if he plans to remain a tag team wrestler and more. (Interview)
