Daniels On Name Change; Mick Foley Remembers Buddy Rose

Christopher Daniels had the following to say about TNA altering his name to just Daniels in a recent interview with About.com“It’s not going to impact me at all. I’m still the same guy going out there and wrestling the best match I can every time I get into the ring. As far as why, that’s nothing I really want to get into to be honest with you. That is something that was decided. It really didn’t matter what they called me as long as I go out there and get an opportunity to excel and climb the ladder.”

Meanwhile, Mick Foley has been reminiscing about Buddy Rose on his MySpace page. “I think I may have met him only twice in my career. But I will always remember the first time I met him – backstage as a guest of Shane Douglas at a WWF show in the Nassau Coliseum. I’m guessing this was around late 1990, early 1991, when Shane had gotten his first shot in WWF, after putting his Dynamic Dude days were behind him. Shane brought me into the dressing room, and some of the guys were polite, if somewhat unenthusiastic about the guy in the red flannel shirt. Until I met Buddy Rose, that is. Buddy actually jumped up out of his chair, shaking my hand, talking about my matches he’d seen. ‘These other guys don’t know,’ Buddy said, ‘Because they’re always in the gym. But brother, I’ve seen your stuff. The elbow off the apron, the clothesline over the top…I don’t know how you do it.'”
