Bryan Danielson interrupted Hangman Page while the new AEW world champion celebrated last week on AEW Dynamite. The American Dragon and the Millennial Cowboy had a back and forth on the mic. Bryan Danielson was playing the role of the cocky heel, and the crowd made their feelings clear as they booed Bryan Danielson heavily.
The 2-time WrestleMania main eventer said the following about his character:
“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, (…) 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 (..) 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,” Bryan Danielson said. (h/t: sescoops)
