By Brian Fritz for the Orlando Sentinel:
Even when you are considered one of the best performers in your business, that doesn’t mean things will go smoothly. That is especially the case when it comes to the pro wrestling business.
Case is point: Davey Richards (Wesley Richards) who is thought of by many as one of the best wrestlers in the business right now along with his tag-team partner Eddie Edwards. The two made a name for themselves at Ring of Honor as the American Wolves, having an incredible string of great matches over most of the last six years.
Even when they weren’t paired together, they still excelled with both of them winning the singles world championship in ROH, a promotion that is known for its excellent matches that sets the bar very high in front of a very critical audience.

1. Manik and Kenny King beat Zema Ion and Chris Sabin. King and Manik danced with Zema’s headphones on during the match. They celebrated after the match with a great dance off as well. The choreography of this match was awesome by all four guys.
2. Ethan Carter III beat Dewey Barnes and Norv Fernum in a handicap match.. EC3 was on offense for most of the match and the ending seemed very predictable. It didn’t seem to hold the crowd the way other matches did.
I do not follow Total Nonstop Action Wrestling or its weekly episodic Impact Wrestling show on Thursday nights. I haven’t even watched a full episode of TNA Wrestling since they attempted to go head-to-head with the WWE’s Monday Night Raw. However, during the last aired episode of Impact, a debut promo was played and my interest was instantly grabbed as I found out about it later on. What is old can again be new and this debut may be a new and fantastic opportunity for TNA to grab a lot of eyes on Thursday nights…
In this video Jeff Jarrett issues his first comments since leaving TNA. He talks about what he has been up to and where he thinks the pro wrestling business is headed. This is an interesting interview!
Wrestling Inc: Did you grow up as a wrestling fan?
Christopher Daniels: Yeah. I grew up in Fayetteville, North Carolina where Fort Bragg is, basically where the Mid Atlantic territories were sort of based out of the Carolinas. So I grew up watching guys like Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes and the Road Warriors. I got a chance to watch all those guys live. Magnum T.A. and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, the Midnight Express. But yeah, man. My dad took me there, to the Cumberland County Arena, to watch it as a kid and I just stuck with it I guess.
