I'm going to have to go ahead and say I completely do not buy Christopher Daniels in the main event scene. what has he done recently to deserve being thrown into the main event scene? a couple matches with James Storm? other than that he's had tag matches with Kazarian against Kurt Angle and AJ Styles, plus a lengthy feud with AJ Styles, who himself has not been main event for awhile now.
I personally don't watch professional wrestling for the in ring wrestling and think that is just a small part of what happens, but to me Daniels just does not have the look right now to be considered "heavyweight" champion. he looks more like Gillberg the WWE comedic ripoff of Goldberg. now I'm not saying size is crucial. Jeff Hardy isn't that big or muscular, but he has a defined look with his face paint/tattoos plus he has some good spot moves off the top rope to make himself exciting for the viewers.
I might buy more into Daniels if he was built up better, feuding with different heavyweight wrestlers other than Storm, or if he had a better look/more muscular. as I said, he reminds me too much of Gillberg, too skinny.
some might say that body size doesn't matter and throw out a name like Eddie Guerrero. but even Gurrero himself wasn't main event level until he went to the WWE and added body size. when he was in WCW he looked skinny and more like a cruiser weight wrestler that he was at the time.
I don't want this to sound as if I don't like Daniels. as I started off saying, I do like him. I find him funny and entertaining to watch. I think he could be a great champion, a great TV champion in the mid card. I think it's unfortunate that the TV title is being wasted on Devon. I didn't like it when Devon had it before, and then felt like maybe it was going to become bigger once Samoa Joe had it. but nope, TNA dropped the ball again by giving the title back to a guy people don;t really care about. but right now just imagine the fued that could have been between Samoa Joe and Christopher Daniels. IMO that is where Daniels could shine and be a big factor. either the mid card with the TV title, or even the tag team division with Kazarian again as the world tag team champions of the world.
So you want him to do Steroids? That is how Eddie bulked up. He was bulking up in WCW towards the end his run. He was pretty big in 98-9.
I think Daniels could carry the title. All it takes is one or two big feuds and a big win or two and I think he could carry the title (Not comparing to a Ziggler win in WWE against Cena or at least a well booked feud, I know how really, really angry people get and no I will not mention that Cena clearly does Steroids either because he doesn't, it is all natural). Aries and AJ are "smaller" guys and are legit champs, the same with Jeff Hardy.
Daniels was getting a big push in 09 before the Hogan Regime ended that and that was a damn shame as I saw some of those matches and they were damn good. Daniels has charisma and talent and he can wrestle. The beauty of TNA is that it does not really matter who the title is on as it rarely budges the ratings and probably revenue so they can experiment a bit more. But undoubtedly he would be a great TV champ, defending it every week or wrest the X Division title from RVD in a great feud before elevating him if TNA so chose.
