Below are some highlights from a recent interview that Daniels recently gave to Tim Baines of Canada’s Ottawa Sun newspaper. This interview was printed online to both the Ottawa Sun and Slam! Sports websites and is available in its entirety at this link.
On Facing Off Against AJ Styles
“AJ and I have great chemistry. The number of times we’ve been in the ring together … it could be more than 100. For a while, it seemed like every promoter wanted to put us together. We go into it hoping to have a quality match. The personal challenge for us is to make it memorable. He and I have the same sensibility of what we want to get done in the ring. We just complement each other. We’ve got that chemistry that you maybe find once or twice in a career. I think the match has the potential to steal the show.”
On Shawn Michaels and Sean Waltman
“When I first started training, Shawn Michaels was somebody I emulated. He wasn’t a bigger guy. I was about 180 lbs. and 20 years ago it would have meant I wouldn’t have been in the business. But guys like Michaels and Sean Waltman (paved the way).”
On His Recent Stint in ROH Wrestling
“It lit a fire under me — it was a notice to keep working hard. It was a great series of matches for me: Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, Kevin Steen, Claudio Castagnoli, Colt Cabana.”
