PWTorch columnist Sean Radican spoke to TNA wrestler Christopher Daniels during TNA's media conference call on Wednesday promoting this Sunday's Turning Point PPV. The following is Part One of Radican's Q&A from the conference call. Part Two will be published Thursday prior to TNA Impact.

Radican: First of all, I wanted to ask you - do you see yourself holding the TNA World Title before your career is over, or will you be content with your legacy as a great, standout supporting player?

Daniels: I would love to be World champion. I think that right now, it's just a matter of the opportunity coming around. You know, if you asked me five years ago, 'Could I be World champion?' I would have answered yes. But, the truth is that I feel like right now, with the work that I'm doing, I'm closer to being World champion than I've ever been. I think it's just a matter of circumstances and opportunity.

You look at guys like Mark Henry who had such a long career in WWE before he finally became World champion. You look at someone like Austin Aries, who if you said two years ago, 'Could he be World champion?' you might have answered negative. But, the truth is just catching fire and catching the eyes. I feel like I've done that the past couple of months.

So, could I be World champion? Absolutely. I feel like I still wrestle - and can wrestle - a main event style. I certainly can get on the microphone and hopefully talk people into the seats to get my ass beat.

Will I be content? You know, I would love to be World champion. If it doesn't happen, I have to be honest with myself and say that I've had a very successful career. But, yeah, there would still be a little bit of that ache of not being World champion. And, I'm going to try to rectify that in the months to come.

Later in the conference call, Daniels commented that driving toward the TNA World Title is one of his motivators to keep him going 20-plus-years into being a pro wrestler.
