Christopher Daniels discusses TNA going back to Orlando
"I think it was good. We just got back from doing our first tapings there in I think 8 months and they were very well received. The fans welcomed us back with open arms. We had a little different set up than we did before so there's definitely a little freshness to it there that we didn't have last year and I'm looking forward to seeing how the next set of tapings go in December and you know, once we settle back down to an actual soundstage that's gonna become ours and see how it goes. I think it's the best thing for our company. You know, we did the thing when we went around taping the shows at different venues around the United States and that worked well for us but there were also negatives, cost wise it wasn't really effective for us so I feel like going back and doing what's best and going back to a central location, and hopefully having the opportunity to go out on occasion whether it's for TV or PPVs to go to other cities, I think that's gonna be better for us overall. A little bit of the best of both worlds. I think it benefits us in the long run."
Christopher Daniels discusses CM Punk and Daniel Bryan
"I saw that he had the work ethic to make it work. A lot of times it's just a matter of getting that opportunity. It's funny that the example of what he is and what Daniel Bryan is, goes against the grain of what the WWE is trying to do. It seems very rare that they take guys off the indies anymore. You know they've got the Performance Center and they want their wrestlers to start from there at the bottom. It's almost like they're trying to grow wrestlers in a petri dish and then you look at guys like Punk, Bryan and Antonio Cesaro who worked all over the world on the independent scene and it seems like they're doing well for themselves and making it in the WWE system despite not being brought up in the WWE system."

It just all kept piling up, it all kept mounting and mounting and I didn't know how to handle it. I always wondered how could someone possibly take their own life, and so I got to that point where I said, 'You know what, maybe this would be easy. You know, maybe this would be an easy way to fix things.'"
