TNA star Christopher Daniels revealed exclusively on Friday's PWTorch Livecast that he is the most confident he's ever felt in TNA because TNA is the most confident they've ever been in him as a performer.

Daniels noted there were times in the past when he felt restricted, but now he feels like TNA has given him freedom as a performer after proving to be capable of that responsibility.

"They trust me to go out there and do stuff - to fail or succeed on my own merits. And, I feel that I've succeeded," Daniels told PWTorch editor Wade Keller.

Daniels said part of that is coming up with new material each week on TV to find a way to get on fans's nerves, which is difficult to do in this era when the audience knows it's a show. It shows the importance of knowing the art of being a heel.

"I try to find something that gets under the people's skin and go with it," Daniels said. "Even if they sort of appreciate what you're doing, you still find a way to upset people."

Daniels added that he draws his inspiration from watching TV or movies to see what characters come across like jackasses or total jerks, which he then adopts for his character. "Like the scarf, appletini, etc.," he said.

At the end of the day, Daniels said his goal is for viewers to notice and remember him by doing something different each week. Daniels said this is especially important with so much pro wrestling on TV to where it's almost "white noise" and people don't notice what many wrestlers are doing.

"I want to get under people's skins and make people remember they saw me," Daniels said.
