Bryan Danielson showed a different side of himself on last week’s AEW Dynamite, when he confronted World Champion Adam Page.
Danielson reminded Page and the fans that he defended the WWE World Championship one night after he won it at WrestleMania, and continued to push the buttons of Page and the Virginia audience.
However, Danielson doesn’t consider last week a “heel turn”. Speaking with Busted Open Radio, he said:
“So, I don’t know what people are talking about. I thought the people of Virginia were giving me a really tough time.
“I don’t think anything I said was wrong or even mean to say, ‘Hey, congratulations Hangman Adam Page. You are the world champion, I’m a little disappointed it’s not Kenny Omega because that’s who I wanted to beat for the AEW Championship. And I’m a little disappointed that you’re not wrestling tonight and that you haven’t been wrestling that much and I’ve been wrestling every single week since I’ve come to AEW’.
“I don’t think any of that is overtly mean (laughs). I think because people boo me, and I’m not gonna lie I do enjoy being booed. There’s something just so fun about it (laughs).
“So, I might lean into that a little bit more but there was nothing I said that was wrong or mean or anything like that. Now, because of that I’m gonna kick all of his friends’ heads in but I think I would be doing that anyway.
“I don’t consider it a heel turn. I’m just being me.”
On tonight’s Dynamite, Bryan Danielson is sure to be booed again as he faces Colt Cabana in Cabana’s hometown of Chicago.
