1/9 TNA Conference Call with Christopher Daniels and Kazarian: Where the name Bad Influence came from, TNA in the UK, Their creative process, and if they will be working as a tag team or singles in the near future

Jan 9, 2013 - 01:55 PM

-TNA publicist Lindsey Bynum opened the show by hyping Impact tomorrow night, big live events on Saturday that are being taped, Genesis on Sunday, and the UK tour at the end of the month.

-Kazarian answered that he liked the changes to the PPV schedule as he thought the market was over saturated right now in wrestling. He said they had a busy weekend with all the things planned, but they were ready. Daniels added more in character comments and put over he and Kaz as the biggest deal in TNA right now and said of course they had a busy weekend because of who they are.

-They both said they would be defending the tag titles again once they are finally given a chance to win them back. Daniels talked about defending them in Glasgow, where the Christopher Daniels Museum is. (Daniels told him to check Wikipedia.)

-Kaz answered that their creative process was just looking into their minds and that the ideas were creative because it was them. Daniels added that they are 25/8 when it comes to being creative. He said all they do is look for ways to get under people's skin and to entertain.

-Kaz said the Bad Influences name came from what people said about them backstage after they exposed AJ Styles and how they walk around backstage.

-Daniels said there isn't a single dare that they have been given that they haven't done.

-Daniels said they would be trying their luck in singles matches more, but they would still be teaming and trying to recapture the tag titles.

-Kazarian agreed that their friendship outside of the ring has helped them jell faster in the ring and that 2013 is going to be an even bigger year for them.

-Kazarian and Daniels both denied playing the Suicide character while saying they would be amenable to another Impact video game.

-They hyped Daniels vs. Storm by answering a kayfabe question and Kaz said he would be there to cheer Daniels on to victory because Daniels didn't need any help.

-Both guys put over the UK fans and say they wish they could come there more often. They teased that the Blossom twins, two attractive women on the UK show TNA Boot Camp, are blowing their phones up.

-Both men put over RVD and the X Division but they also distanced themselves from competing in that division for now. They also put over Matt Morgan and Joey Ryan as a good team.

-Daniels put over the new Marvel Now plans, specifically Spiderman and The X-Men series.

-Kazarian put over Christian York, Kenny King, and Xema Ion as future stars in the X Division. He said he would like to see Sonjay Dutt returns. Daniels added Jimmy Rave and Amazing Red for the X Division and the former Generation Me (Matt and Nick Jackson).

-Kazarian said they were very satisfied with where they are creatively because they have an opportunity to be themselves. He said they weren't playing characters at all. Daniels added that this wasn't a new skill they found in themselves, this is just the first time they have had an opportunity to be themselves.

-The call closed with Kaz and Daniels cheering for Lindsey Bynum in a very funny moment.

Shore's Slant: Daniels and Kazarian continue to be incredibly charismatic, but I could have done with a little less shtick here. Of course they were also peppered by several kayfabe questions so it's hard to blame them completely. My only concern about what they said was that they would be doing more singles wrestling. The tag division needs them desperately right now, and I hate to see them stuck in a mid-card singles feud when they could be leading the show as tag champs.
