Christopher Daniels Says The Claire Lynch Storyline Was "Very Maury Povich"

Christopher Daniels was interviewed by The Daytona Beach News-Journal to promote this Sunday's Bound for Glory pay-per-view.

Daniels was asked what about the storyline between him Dixie Carter, AJ Styles, and Claire Lynch as to what worked and what didn't. Daniels response is below:

It was something they put a lot of time and thought into, almost a year. The history between me and AJ helped, with our careers being so closely intertwined. I think when people think of AJ's best matches in TNA, my name comes up. AJ's success, notoriety and popularity really made that stick. No one had ever accused a top performer of something like this. The story line was very Maury Povich. We got "Maury Povich" and "Jerry Springer" chants at the show. When it came time to do the stuff in the ring, it was me and AJ Styles.

The interview also has Daniels talking about the tag team division in TNA Wrestling and in WWE. He discusses the Aces and 8s storyline, being live for the rest of the year, and more. The full interview can be seen here.

    I do have to give TNA points for originality on that storyline. I won't say it was a great story, or executed well on all levels, but it was different. It also had a lot of plot twists that really kept the fans involved, but at times it lagged, and the ending was a thrown together mess!

      Hey Kendra! I agree. As Daniels stated, this story went on for almost an entire year. You barely see that in wrestling anymore. Not only did I like this storyline because it kept going and had my interest, but (as you said) it was different. I loved how they brought Kazarian in to turn on AJ and that mystery went on for weeks. Then Dixie was brought in and I thought that part was the highlight with the whole cheating scenario. It was falling down with Claire and the ending was sudden, but I'm glad it ended then and didn't go any further. Long stories like this are risky.
