Newly crowned ROH World Heavyweight Champion Christopher Daniels recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of SI.com about various topics. During the interview, he was asked about winning the ROH World Champion from Adam Cole at the 15 Anniversary pay-per-view event. He said that he is happy to shed the title of the best who never held it and that the way he is perceived now is forever changed. He noted that success is gauged by his ability to feed his family and provide for them. He said that just to have the title in his hands is when he realized that he would be lying to himself if he said he would have been ok if he didn’t win it.
When asked about Cole, he brought up Cole being a three-time world champion and that he earned all of those title reigns as well as everything that he has gained. “In the end, he just never had that hunger like I had that hunger for this championship. That drive and fire inside of me was the edge I had in our match.”
