Current Ring of Honor World Champion Christopher Daniels recently spoke with Rolling Stone about his career and more. During the interview, he was asked about winning the ROH World Title from Adam Cole at the 15 Anniversary pay-per-view event. He said that there was a sense of release as well as accomplishment and weight being taken off his shoulders. He said that the idea of finally winning the big one hit him at once and just the idea of reaching the pinnacle after a long dry spell.
Earlier this month, there were reports of WWE potentially buying Ring of Honor. When asked about it, Daniels said that he can’t imagine a situation where the rumors of WWE possibly buying ROH is true. “I can see a possibility of working together in terms of the tape library. So many guys are there now that came through ROH, so the possibility of using the tape library to accentuate content on their network makes sense. Or even if it’s a matter of working together to put on a co-promoted show. I just can’t see a situation where it benefits Sinclair to sell ROH outright. Not with the business model that we have in place at Ring of Honor.” He said that he doesn’t see it happening the way people have suggested. He noted that he is a pro wrestler and not a businessman or a man who makes decisions on that level so he could be completely wrong, but doesn’t think that’s the case.
