Interview highlights with Christopher Daniels,

What he does to day in shape,

“What I do I try different things ahead of time, I don’t get stuck in one rut and I don’t do the same workout for more than a month at at time. I'm very interested in keeping my endurance up, my stamina up, I keep my rest periods short and I try to do as much compound movement as i can. Not isolation, but a lot of compound exercises, stuff designed to work the whole the body, to get the full body workout. I do a lot of yoga, it keeps you flexible and you recover from injury quickly and I try to keep my heart rate up the entire time. I don’t spend hours upon hours in the gym, I go in for about an hour at at time and that’s how you get the best results.”

His long term plans in Pro Wrestling,

"Well I'm just gonna have fun until I stop having fun, if it ever became more work than it was fun I said to myself I was gonna get out. If I can't wrestle at the same level, or at the top level that I want to wrestle I was gonna get out. I feel like I'm wrestling the best matches of my career, I'm in the best shape of my life. I can wrestle 25 or 30 minute matches if I have to, so at this point in my career I'm nowhere close to hanging up the boots.”

On his match with AJ Styles & Samoa Joe at TNA Unbreakable 2005,

“It's the one match that I'm complimented on the most and it's the best match that we've done in the Impact Zone. I've had some great matches, I've been fortunate to work with a lot of great wrestlers. That was such a special crowd that night, they were so psyched to see three guys that were TNA originals wrestle in the main event, in a style that they can appreciate in the X-Division and all the stars were aligned that night for that particular match.”

Daniels also shared his thoughts on Sting as the first inductee of the TNA Hall of Fame, working with El Generico in Ring of Honor and it's current product and morehere!
