I think that they never really saw anything that they could really sink their teeth into," Daniels said. "Which is OK, because you know, the truth of the matter is I was never really their type of wrestler. Or when I was, or now that I am … I don't know … I've already got ties to TNA, or Ring of Honor, or wherever I was, at the time. A lot of it was timing, but I think a lot of it was just preference. You know, there was a period of time, when I was a younger guy, when I was trying to get a job there, but they were more interested in guys that were taller, and heavier. Guys that were built more like Ryback, (instead of) me. If it wasn't for places like TNA, Japan, and Ring of Honor, I might not have had the career that I've had. I've had a lot of great opportunities, despite WWE's reluctance to ever give me an opportunity."
