    • Christopher Daniels: Best Moonsault Ever!

  • The Fallen Angel is the one greatest tna wrestlers

    The Fallen Angel is the one greatest tna wrestlers. Chris Daniels is a innovative wrestler in TNA. His moves are awesome like the Angels wings and the BME(Best Moonsault Ever)The Fallen Angel gimmick was one of my favorites ever. Christopher Daniels has had many rivals in TNA the best one of all is him and his friend AJ Styles. he has won a lot of titles in TNA tag team champions with Triple X and The phenomenal AJ styles. I hope that Daniel Covell will go to the WWE and do a gimmick like the Fallen Angel and have a stable or faction like the Ministry of Darkness and him and AJ styles win the WWE tag team championships. and Have The Cruiserweight championship mean a lot more than what people think now of the X divison tittle. And he also wins the World heavyweight championship and Allen Jones(AJ styles wins the WWE championship the same night.moreless
